  1. I just got done watching the greatest show ever put before human eyes.

    A movie from start to finish right in front of my eyes.

    Me thinks the whole crew deserves a gold medal.

    A perfect performance in inperfect times.

    What say you?
  2. Can't remember any previous ones to be honest. Bit like Eurovision.

    Free Tibet.
  3. 20,000 kids throwing toilet rolls?

    Ra Ra
  4. Yer lets just get rid of all the running jumping and throwing things and cut to the closing ceremony.
    No doubt the London Olympics committee will be demanding more money now to try and outdo the Chinese
  5. What I saw of it looked very well organised and put together. The order that the countries marched in confused the hell out of me though (although to be honest I don't speak Mandarin :p ), but it was strange having Australia directly followed by Zambia...

    Apart from that the organizers can give themselves a big high five :highfive:
  6. Apparently the opening ceremony was directed by the movie director that was behind Hero and House of the Flying Daggers. Thought it was an awesome sight. No chance of us topping that.
  7. You could get the guy who directed Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead to direct your opening ceremony. That'd top the humourless Chinese :D
