So, a good time was had by all, despite audio problems and Livestream deciding to herp the derp multiple times over the last 20 minutes or so of Hero (which is why it isn't in the online library...grrr).
Both movies were kind of depressing at the end though, so I decided to make up for that by introducing a new pairing and a new poll:
Mo lei tau: the comedies of Stephen Chow
God of Cookery
EDIT: Crap. Because I put an end date on the poll, it's not letting me allow voting again. Anybody know how to fix that or delete the poll and add a new one?
