John:  You seen any good flicks lately, dude?

Kyle:  Actually, I’ve been watching tons of movies. I have a library card; get all my movies for free.

John:  Oh nice. What are some of your favorites?

Kyle:  Let’s see. The night before last, I watched Hero.

John:  What’s that about?

Kyle:  It’s one of those films, kind of like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Has Jet Li. It’s, uh, martial arts and mysticism all blended into one.

John:  So, a lot of cool fight scenes?

Kyle:  A lot of cool fight scenes, but also a cool story.

John:  Didn’t you once practice to be a ninja?

Kyle:  I’ve always wanted to be a ninja, but running on, uh, telephone wires scares me to death.

John:  Yeah. It looks like that’d be really hard.

Martial arts films are pretty popular here in America. A bunch of my friends are really into them.
Personally, I like the fight scenes and the way that they use trick filming to get certain shots.
Are you into martial arts films? Have you ever studied a martial art?
