    I usually make 粥 by boiling last night's rice in water. I prefer mine with red beans, gingko nuts and fresh dates.

    When I saw "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" in a theater, some people in the audience started laughing when the characters started flying. I think it was as if they were thinking the characters were silly for flying. They didn't laugh at Superman when he stuck his arms out and dove through a window making the "whoosh" sound, however.

    It's a cultural thing. The Chinese "get it". To draw an analogy, these are their culture's superheroes. They grew up with the characters. Other cultures look in and think either "WTF?" or that it's somehow real. Maybe someday people will grow up and recognize it as comic book fun.
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

    to be pedantic, they're kind of floating, not flying, flying is not for mere superheroes in Classical Chinese Culture...

    Lol. You basically just said they are doing it wrong.

    Which type of comic fantasy flying is "correct", then? Superman? Peter Pan? Iron man?

    well if I remember correctly from my Classical Chinese class, floating like wire work in movies is a pretty common feat for a classical hero, like greek heroes that have superhuman, but not completely fantastical powers.
    flying like superman is only for immortal deities, not demi-gods.
    or so they told me...

    Yes, books vs movies.

    Do you need the interviews where the directors say their characters are flying?

    The old shaw brother movies are closer to what you are describing. The newer ones they point and travel in the direction they are "flying."
