I'm only taking Mandarin 1 now but I watched the movie 英雄 last week and was happy that I could understand around 2% of the dialog, occasionally entire phrases even.   

Since I can repurpose my Japanese ability to read most Chinese characters, I'm thinking I should start getting some Mandarin-language torrents that have chinese subtitling -- I've found I learned Japanese best when watching Japanese TV with Japanese subtitling.

Sweet. I've been scoping out film journals/sites/blogs for a bit... I've added this to the list.

I've only done 3 months of Chinese, but movies are always a good way to learn.

(so 甭谢,一点小意思而已 would be something like "no need to thank, it's but a small gesture (from me), that's all")?

That's about the size of it, flippant. Be warned though, I'm not a native speaker, albeit my grammar isn't half as dodgy as my accent. I'd hate to lead a new student astray.

The article on Cape No. 7 was good, pretty much spot on I felt about the state of the Taiwanese film industry.

Oh, and nice thread title. 電影, heh.
