  7. Blade Dragon sounds like an incredible piece of history and I love history! I really admire all three featured actors.
    The Taking of Tiger Mountain - I could sense the making of a opera from that. The music is going to be epic as well.

  8. The music in the trailer is so beautiful. We had to pick music and make a single person play around it in my theater class in high school. If this had been around then, I would have definitely picked that for my piece!
