Some watch movies to get entertained, some to kill time and some to learn some thing new and interesting from it. Yes i'm the third type.
I 'm writing about this movie now is... 1. My friend wanted it to read.. well he is also a wonderful blogger read him at The graveyard of my thoughts 2. its is one of my personal favorites and i advice everyone to watch it. And if you have!!!! please watch it again after reading this. I'm sure you will love watching it with a new prospective. I'm waiting for its next sequel Kung Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom 3D release on June 3, 2011 (its way too ahead [:(] )
An intro: (specially for those who haven't watched it)
Kung Fu Panda is an animated movie that teaches several interesting life lessons, embedded in a predictable storyline. I watched it more than 7 times (call me a Pandarian master, hehe) its ultimate in-terms of both entertainment as well as in depth animation efforts. Dreamworks rules.
In the show, the panda, whose name is Po, was chosen by a wise old turtle, Ooguay, as the dragon warrior to defeat the enemy. Unfortunately, Po was an unlikely character for he was fat and clumsy. He was viewed with much skepticism and doubt by his martial-arts teacher, Shifu, and the Furious Five: Tigress, Monkey, Mantis, Viper, and Crane.
The highlight of the show, at least in my opinion, clearly belonged to the numerous spouts of wisdom and quotes cleverly delivered by the various characters. Animated or not, wisdom can be found anywhere. All you have to do is look and listen with an open mind.
Here are 5 of the wise sayings that I picked up in the movie:
Ooguay: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.” :::::: that means "Living In the Now"
Ooguay: “One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.” :::::: that means "You Can’t Run Away From Your Destiny"
Ooguay: “There are no accidents.” :::::: That means "Things Happen For A Reason"
Tigress: “It is said that the Dragon Warrior can go for months without eating, surviving on the dew of a single gingko leaf and the energy of the universe.”
Po: “Then I guess my body doesn’t know I’m the Dragon Warrior yet. It’s gonna take a lot more than dew, and, uh, universe juice.” ::::::: that means "Your Passion Keeps You Going"
Po: “There is no charge for awesomeness - or attractiveness.” :::::: That means "You Can Be the Most Unlikely Hero"
