Shaw Bros movies other steps beyond "What's the Story"

Posted by mark December 14, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

I'm finding that Shaw Bros. movies seem to be good for improving my listening skills.  They were made in Hong Kong, but always have a Mandarin soundtrack and English sub-titles.  The Mandarin doesn't have a strong accent, is usually pretty straight-forward, and the movies are mostly action/kung fu.  So, there is lots of visual context to figure out what is going on, even if I miss a few words, or even a lot of words.

I'm wondering if any other Podies have found other learning materials that seem to be a bridge between CPOD and the wide, wonderful world of full-on Mandarin?
