Hello, my name is Chun Yu, but I go by Jennifer. I was born in Shanghai, China and moved to the United States when I was eight years old. I am double majoring in Microbiology and East Asian Languages (Chinese) and am a freshman in Weaver Hall this year. I’ll be honest, film analysis is a humanities credit and worth six thousand words, which helps complete my general education requirements. I also believe that it is a fun class, a belief which has not been disproven.
One of my favorite films is About A Boy. I enjoy light hearted movies that have meaning and feeling to them. Love Actually is also like this. Both feature Hugh Grant, of which I am a huge fan. IP Man is a movie that I liked outside of my usual genre, as it was an action movie that was quite gruesome. It is a biographical account of a martial arts master, which was Bruce Lee’s mentor. This Hong Kong film made me laugh and cry with anxiety the whole time, it is also one of the few movies I want to watch more than once.
My least favorite film is Birds, the Alfred Hitchcock movie I watched for my television productions class. I did not think it lived up to the short story. I disliked Atonement because it seemed to be one horrible event after another for what seemed to be no reason at all. I also disliked Love In Disguise, a movie directed by Leehom Wang, a popular star in China. It was terribly cliche, and I had a hard time paying attention.
