这次我们分享的电影是 《时空恋旅人》

IMG_0409.JPG

对你的爱会持续多久

只要你头顶的星星依旧闪烁

IMG_0410.JPG

Tim21岁了

他的老爸告诉他

他们家族的男人都有时光旅行的超能力

可以回到过去

于是Tim将信就疑地试了一下

回到了夏天

在那里他试图改变和暗恋对象的关系

却发现怎么穿越时空都不能让不爱你的人爱上你

IMG_0411.JPG

在看这部电影之前的那些日子里

总喜欢回忆过去那些美好的时刻

也会设想未来的种种可能

但生活不总是快乐

在某一瞬间可能就会突然想起不太好的那些时候

IMG_0412.JPG

有时候我也会想

如果可以回到以前

我或许能做得好一些

让情况不至于变得那么糟糕

这让我想起了之前出过的一篇推文:

好书推荐| 《The Midnight Library》:如果能回到过去,你是否会选择过不一样的人生?

不过这些念头也就是想想

毕竟生活很真实

没有超能力

面对遗憾的时候

我们只能叹息

然后让它过去

因为有些事儿在当下选择的那一瞬间

就已经注定

“我们生活的每一天

都在穿越时空

我们能做的

就是尽其所能

珍惜这趟不平凡的旅程”

精彩影评:

@彭萦:你们有没有发现,所有的时空穿越的电影和书到了最后都在告诉我们,要living in the moment...最朴实庸常的时刻也是美好的。

@儿子:对于我们最爱的人,不说永远,只说珍惜。差点在电影院哭断气。

@davekozg:1、三观够正,道理积极;2、故事想法很有意思;3、原声配乐很好听;4、剧本有问题,过度弱化冲突,故事本身除了舒服外没有说服力,life is much harder;5、太多旁白只说明剧情推进的乏力;6、镜头不时莫名其妙地晃;7、片子质量有三分,给到四分是私心。

@Reader:突然悟出一個道理。分分合合的戀情,多半因為其中一方熱切於go back in time,重臨兩人曾經的過往。而另一方並不。

@办公室甜心:选角美,配乐美,造型美,镜头美,剧情美,台词美,这样一部让人心情好的电影,我都快忘了爱情事件多美的事儿了,可电影不仅仅只描述了爱情,还有温馨的家人,给一百颗星都不够!Rachel这样可人的女孩,要遇到了我一定会去追!

看完电影,我也有深有感触的片段

当然看完电影不能忘记学习英语

我从其中挑选了个地道英文表达

让我们来看看本期的内容吧~


1.a mixed blessing/bag

忧喜参半的事; 有利亦有弊的事物

写作推荐

IMG_0417.JPG

英英释义:

Something has both good and bad aspects.

例句:

Ironically, high consumption may be a mixed blessing in human terms, too.

具有讽刺意味的是,从人类的角度来看,高消费也可能是喜忧参半。

拓展:

这里补充三个表示“事物有利有弊”的表达:

①xxx cut both ways

【if something cuts both ways, it has both good and bad aspects.】

举个栗子:

Independence in a relationship cuts both ways .

②sth be of a help and hinderance to sth

举个栗子:

Video games can be both a help and hinderance to study.

电子游戏对学习有利也有弊。

【举一反三】

如果我们想表达xxx弊大于利 ,则可以说:

sth be more of a hinderance than a help to sth.

同样用这个句子造句:

Video games can be more of a hinderance than a help to study.

电子游戏对学习的影响弊大于利。

③Yet set against these benefits are a bundle of worries.【句型推荐】

这个句型一般可以放在开头,例如:

Yet set against the benefits are a bundle of worries . Electronic payment system maybe vulnerable to technical failures, power blackouts and cyber attacks.


2.dump

例句:

②She was dumped by her long-term lover after five years.

拓展:

关于“甩某人”,你能想到多少种表达法?

在电影中,出现了一个同义表达“ditch抛弃;甩掉;与…断交 【If someone ditches someone, they end a relationship with that person.】

举个栗子:

I can't bring myself to ditch him and start again.

我不忍心蹬掉他再觅新欢。

英英释义:

关于“cow”,它还有另一个意思,作为动词,可以表示:恐吓;威胁;把…吓住【If someone is cowed, they are made afraid, or made to behave in a particular way because they have been frightened or badly treated.】

举个栗子:

The government, far from being cowed by these threats, has vowed to continue its policy.

该政府丝毫没有被这些威胁吓住,发誓要继续执行其政策。

《经济学人》一篇关于摩洛哥民主政治的文章 Sex, lies and videotape 也出现了这个表达:

IMG_0424.JPG

这里再拓展一个很好玩的表达:until the cows come home ,表示“很长时间;长期【If you say that someone can do something until the cows come home, but it will have no effect, you are emphasizing that it will have no effect even if they do it for a very long time.】

举个栗子:

你可以花很长时间来制定政策,但除非高层对之进行监管,否则不会有效果。
