The first trailer of The Great Wall starts with a couple of footages flashes across the screen,which reveals the important story elements: experienced warriors, smoky battlefield,brave soldiers and the picturesque Great Wall.However the international edition with the subtitles 'One of the biggest wonders of the world, constructed in 1700 years, running 5500 miles,and what is it for?' maybe expresses the theme better than the domestic edition.

《美姐》其实更应该叫《铁蛋》,因为整个故事都是围绕着一个叫铁蛋的西北汉子展开的,而美姐作为一个人物,戏份只占了很少的一部分,尽管她的三个女儿可以看做是她的肉体与血脉的延伸,但从故事主旨上,她们都不是主角,依然是依附于铁蛋而存在的。铁蛋,这样的名字具有很强的时代性,现在的年轻人已经很少叫了,目前仍然能拥有这样的名字的人,一般年龄都在40岁以上了,而且这个名字更多用于小名或者诨号,而非户口本的正式名字。在旧文化中,铁蛋、狗剩这样的名字专属于贫农,就像鹤龄、龟年属于文化人一样。现在现在的人们基本上都脱离了文盲,所以那些土的掉渣的名字就再也没有人肯用了,而像李刚、王华这样的名字就成了新版的铁蛋、狗剩,多的不可胜数。犹如西方人中叫约翰、汤姆的人多如牛毛一样。《美姐》中的铁蛋,他的身上就是已显陈旧的乡土文明中的一个样本,他身上的故事,有着太多传统农业文明的烙印,所以,认真去看去剖析《美姐》,都是非常有意义的事。
2015 年 10 月,由孔笙、李雪执导,海宴同名小说改编的电视剧《琅琊榜》,火爆荧屏。这部剧一经推出就赢得广泛赞誉,获得很高的人气和收视率。在古装传奇剧日臻成熟且近乎泛滥的当下,这部剧能够脱颖而出成为 2015 年的现象级作品,值得深入思考。

《老炮儿》时过境迁的“顽主”

管虎偏爱在自己的电影里设置两个或多个不同的时空,从《头发乱了》开始,到《斗牛》,观众能在电影里看到多个“时”或者“空”穿行、交叉和勾连,如同音乐中的复调,多维叙事产生了丰富和耐人寻味的意蕴。《老炮儿》也不例外,只是将两个时代平移到一个时空。处于局促胡同的“老炮儿”,讲义气按规矩办事;处于开阔洋楼的“二代们”,有着自己的新秩序和行事逻辑。
电视剧《芈月传》根据知名美女作家蒋胜男同名小说(小说初稿题为《大秦宣太后》)改编,小说讲述了秦昭王母亲芈八子的传奇一生。据兵马俑上的残存“芈月”和阿房宫筒瓦上秦惠文王妃子“芈月”的合体陶文而来,人们推测芈八子名叫芈月。   八子是楚王的女儿,为楚王的妾所生。芈八子也称宣太后,相传芈八子城府极深,雄才大略,在秦国把持朝政、呼风唤雨近40年。中国历史上,太后这个称谓始见于她,太后专权亦自她而始,实为千古太后第一人。
