: You will be a superhero if you fill this out! :D

: Please delete the answers that don't apply :)

What country are you from?

United States

: Think about Chinese movies - can you list those that come to mind?

Hero (which I just watched two days ago), Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Musa (The Warrior), any of the Jackie Chan films from Hong Kong.

: Have you heard of any of the following movies?

: Hero (Ying Xiong)
: House of Flying Daggers
: Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

: Have you seen any of these movies?

: Hero (Ying Xiong)
: Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

: What would you say these movies are predominately about? (please only choose one)

: Fantasy
Yeah, I know that's probably a weird answer...but even the historical-themed ones I've seen (Hero, Musa) seem to be more fantasy than history. Sort of like the concept of the American western genre, which is supposed to be "historical" but is really an almost mythological portrait of the American West.

: Which Western movies do you think are comparable in themes to these movies?

: Gladiator
: Pirates of the Caribbean
: King Arthur

I picked these because to me they are also fictionalized stories set to historical themes.

: How would you define a hero?

: Someone who helps someone else, with self-sacrifice not necessarily being involved

: In Western movies, you would describe the typical female role as: (please only choose one)

: Damsel in distress

: In the Chinese movies mentioned above, you would describe the typical female role as: (please only choose one)

: Heroine (on par with the male protagonist)

: If you answered "yes" to having seen some of the Chinese movies, would you be willing to answer more short questions on the movies? (This may or may not happen).

: Yes

: SS :)
