1. The Boondock Saints: What a lame movie. I can't believe it gets a respectable 7.7 at IMDB. And with over 30,000 voters! How bad taste moviegoers can have. Totally a Tarantino ripped-off, lame, weird, pointless, brainless and not funny at all.
I rather like violent movies: the weird ones by Tarantino, the crime ones by Scorsese and Brian De Palma and even some "punk" movies like Kids, Bullies by Larry Clark. But this ridiculous macho piece of trash is surely not in my taste- I had to fast-forward it most of the time.
2. No spitting, please, we are Chinese
"Chinese tour guide Li Weiwei, who works with China International Travel Service in Beijing, has enough examples.
'They take photos when there are signs that say no photography, touch things when signs say do not touch. They spit, talk loudly, litter,' she said. 'Even if we tell them not to, they don't listen.'
Tellingly, the committee cited some Chinese tourists' lack of concern for appearance, hygiene, courtesy, the law, the environment and public infrastructure, as damaging 'the image of China as a civilised country' and generating 'widespread attention and criticism domestically and overseas'."
