These film commentaries often condense a two-hour movie into about 10 minutes of content (usually divided into several episodes): just cut out the key plot clips, with a narration, plus an engaging BGM, a movie commentary suitable for after-dinner enjoyment is just made.
‘These names’ in Chinese film commentary
It is impossible to trace who was the first to comment on the movie. This question is probably not important. The important thing is that, apart from the increasingly exaggerated headline party, the Chinese “movie commentary” movies we see now, no matter what the source is Where, it looks more and more like it was done by the same person.
how do I say this? Come and listen to this material, as long as you have watched Chinese film commentary a few times, you must be familiar with the content:
As soon as the man sat down, Xiaomei took a document and appeared in front of him. Unexpectedly, before the file bag was opened, Foboule appeared in front of them.
It turned out that the man in front of him was the former President of the United States, and this document was quietly lost by his seemingly loyal subordinates.
Don’t blink, the next second Fobler looked at the document, smirked at the old man Thomas, and then handcuffed him. The old man shouted as he walked: baa, baa…
The bodyguard, Brother Beard, came with his younger brother to hear the news, but he didn’t expect that Foboule pulled out the sprayer and instantly eliminated the two Calemis…」
This passage can be regarded as the culmination of contemporary Chinese film commentary literature.
The wonderful thing is that the above names, titles and sentence patterns appear repeatedly in various film commentary films, giving people the illusion that the film commentators all over the world are the same person.
“Xiaomei” is a beautiful woman in the movie, and often refers to the heroine; “Da Zhuang” is a man with a strong body, sometimes also the hero; “Brother Beard” has the same meaning; Said to be from the Northeast dialect, which means unimportant characters in the plot, group performances, etc., or the protagonist’s sidekick.
The most exciting is “Fobo Le”. This should have been a transliteration stalk, referring to the English abbreviation of the FBI of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, but according to the observation of netizens, “Fobo Le” was first because a certain Northeast editing anchor was uneducated. I don’t know that the abbreviation of the FBI is FBI. Mistaken the last i for L, but accidentally discovered the traffic password, so he made a mistake and pretended that he was wrong on purpose, and the name “Fobole” also spread.
Of course, there are more than these people in Chinese film commentaries.
“Uncle Qiantiao” is a middle-aged man with a lot of stories and experiences, “Mourning Biao” is the villain in the movie, and “Little Shuai” is a handsome young man who takes over from Da Zhuang as the male protagonist from time to time. Xiaobai, Daqiang, Dashan, Azhen, Aqiang, Blonde, Qianjo, Dabei and Dabei…
The word formation and sentence pattern in the film commentary literature are more particular. Things like “this man/woman”, “look at it carefully”, “the next second” and “but didn’t expect it” are just the basics, and many sentence patterns All made nonsense literature:
- “If there is no accident, there will be an accident”
- “This little girl who looks like a little girl is actually a little girl”
- “A dazed woman has a dazed face”
If you understand these, you can also do two episodes a day
Based on the above results, many Chinese educational websites have begun to teach you how to do movie commentary.

However, since it is a film commentary film, naturally it cannot be without sound.
But you don’t have to speak, you don’t have to say a word, and you can save the time and cost of recording.

Controversial movie commentary
