7 Old Movies That We Want to See in 3D

My earliest memory of watching a movie in 3-D was back in the late 1980s when Jaws 3 came out. Back then the highlight of the technology involved severed limbs and fish carcasses floating out at you in a rather creepy fashion. Other than that, there really was not much of a difference. Oh what a couple decades can do when it comes to technology. It seems that 3D has made a comeback in a big way the last couple years with everything from a major motion picture to a cartoon to horror films. If not for the visual treat that the 3-D technology added to Avatar, there is no way that movie would have grossed $50 million, let alone become one of the highest grossing movies of all time. In an industry that is fond of retooling, remaking, and flat-out copying its past work, it would nice if Hollywood updated some of these cinema greats (and not so greats) in 3D?

Firefly's 15 Best Chinese Curses And How to Say Them

In just 14 episodes, Joss Whedon's sci-fi masterpiece Firefly managed to build one of the most devoted fanbases in all of nerd-dom. Properties like Star Trek or Doctor Who may have it beat in sheer numbers, but the Browncoats make up for this with their loyalty and tenacity. What is the secret of the show's appeal? Fans can and will explain the show's engrossing plotlines, fascinating characters, brilliant performances, realistic effects, and a unique visual aesthetic -- but if we had to choose one reason, it'd be the dialogue. Whedon created a vision of a human future where mankind speaks English primarily, with Mandarin Chinese added, as one might say, for "flavor" (i.e., profanity). Not only did the use of Mandarin help inform Firefly's future setting, it also often allowed the characters to express themselves in terms too absurd, obscene, or outrageous to be spoken in English. Here then is a collection of 15 of Firefly's most, well -- absurd, obscene, and outrageous lines ever delivered in Mandarin Chinese.
