In the movie Here, Then
What was the purpose of this scene?
I meant this one, but yeah, she pretty ugly too.
She's Chinese. That should explain everything.
It's basically the Asian version of The GoodTimesKid. It's got a pretty girl (kinda) dancing and in both cases that's the best part of the movie.
sometimes, i just don't know how people interpret the meaning of a 'movie' and how to define a 'movie' is a real movie. but there's one thing i'm so sure about 'movie' is that you've got to a workable screenplay, a guy who's capable of making those words, sentences, the dialog, the non-exist scenes to become visualized on a screen and the viewers could at least understand what's going on, what's all about and at least barely understandable what is what. but this so called 'here then' simply failed in every aspect. i just saw several lousy young Chinese, males and females did nothing at all almost in the whole 80 some minutes. the camera tried so hard to focus on something out of nothing, all of the so-called characters played by so so-called actors simply kept chain-smoking to get some attitudes and behaviors. most of the females in this pathetic brainless, meaningless and clueless piece of crap are either so plain or ugly to the extreme, except the last young woman at the travel service store exchanging 1,700 zenminbi then left under the gaze of one of the meaningless male character; she is a real beauty. there are some meaningless and pathetic sexual scenes on the beach and in the hotel, but these scenes are just crappy parts of a crappy big nada. this film should be titled "the walking dead in china, here and there" or just "Chinese zombies", because there's nothing but a bunch of worthless, sou-less, hopeless Chinese young men and young women just completely lost in the 12 billions population. it's nothing about a lost cellphone or a lost id, because nothing lost in the first place since there's nothing to lose whatsoever. if you dare to call this is a 'film', then you'd better have your brain checked asap.
The film’s standout scene features two teenage girls standing at what seems to be a bus stop. Clearly waiting for someone to arrive, the two girls scan the area with their gaze but neither talk, nor recognise each other’s presence. Suddenly, a car pulls up and dance music flows from its windows prompting the two girls to begin swaying to the beat. After a couple of minutes, the girl from the opening scene seems to catch our eye and the camera zooms in on her face. As though suddenly allowed access to her inner world, the pop music fades out only to be replaced with urban white noise. The implication here is that there is absolutely nothing happening in the young woman’s head… the music captures her attention and causes her to dance but the dancing is mechanistic and entirely empty of emotional substance. Indeed, having stared deep into the young woman’s eyes and touched her thoughts, we are no closer to knowing who she was than when we simply watched her dance.
For only 79 cents a day--less than the price of a cup of coffee--you can sponsor a needy Chinese teenager. Your teenager will send you letters, pictures, and an edgy experimental film.
It's been around since the 90s. I used it back then.
VLC was the first media player to ship with all the common codecs. MPC, like every other media player at time, required you to install certain codecs on your OS to play certain file formats.
I don't know if or when MPC ever became superior to VLC, but it wasn't "all this time." VLC was objectively superior to any thing else when it was release.

Aiyo! Now, you're probably wondering how I got here, standing at a muddy bus stop staring blankly into the camera. Well, to find that out we're going to have to rewind a bit.
*REWIND EFFECT* - Cut to baby staring blankly at the camera.
Woah, too far! Aw, but wasn't I completely lacking in affect? Now, as far back as I can rememer, I always wanted to be a millennial Chinese teen...
