wonder woman was great but did they even TRY to do better at their pronunciation of mandarin, it’s like they emailed a mando-speaking friend to translate the line and the read it thinking that you can just pronounce pinyin the same way you’d read english with total disregard to the tonal system.
hell they even pulled the damn “lets refer to mandarin as "chinese’ as if there’s actually a single chinese language instead of ‘chinese’ being a way to refer to the many many languages and dialects across china” thing in the subtitles (it should be “mandarin” or “mandarin chinese” but not just “chinese” gdi)
i know not everybody is aware about the diversity of languages, but mandarin is objectively the most spoken language on the world (almost ONE BILLION okay, and spanish is at #2 with 400 million - that difference is massive considering that english is #3 with 360 million).
can hollywood at least read the damn wikipedia page on it instead of throwing it into their movie like some ~exotic~ decoration? if the point of speaking mando is for it to be impressive, then i damn well expect the actors to at least *attempt* the tones because that was anything but impressive.
except if theyre going to include a foreign language, i find it completely reasonable that, if actors undergo intense training regimens to master an action sequence, they should absolutely be expected to put that much practice into mastering the pronunciation of a single line of dialogue.

Xbox 360 can go to hell, whiny bitch dies on me after overheating once.
Original xbox is the Nokia of game consoles, look at this busted ass controller I have. And you know what? It still works. It doesn’t even have a B button it’s got a fucking random bit of plastic jammed in there, tape holding it together, live wires sticking the fuck out, and it still works. It doesn’t even have both joysticks.
yo gues just incase you didnt know the gorrilaz music video also has a 360 version where you can actually move the camera around . so if you want to have a better look at the backgrounds or maybe look for easter eggs here ya go
