有人跟我一樣衝首日去看《天能》嗎?😆

今天跟老哥Wesley去看IMAX版天能
雖然很可惜我錯過了電影開場
但不影響整體的娛樂感
而且諾蘭這次的動作戲很強!
拍攝執行也很厲害⋯⋯

但因為多數人應該還沒看過
所以這次便先不聊電影
來聊聊電影片名的語言趣味

《天能》的英文片名「TENET」
正讀反讀都一樣
也就是所謂的「回文」Palindrome
(亦作迴文)

英文還有很多回文單字:
前夕 eve
層次 level
中午 noon
雷達 radar
女士 madam
賽車 racecar
謀殺 murdrum

其實不只單字,句子也能呈現回文:
“Was it a rat I saw?”
“Never odd or even.”
“Do geese see God?”
“A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!”

倒著唸還真的發音都一樣!
是不是超有趣的呢?

“Is it crazy how saying sentences
backwards creates backwards
sentences saying how crazy it is?”

甚至還有人創作一長串的回文詩:

“Dammit I’m Mad” by Demetri Martin

Dammit I’m mad.
Evil is a deed as I live.
God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt.
To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss.
Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help?
Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell.
I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”.
Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp,
In my halo of a mired rum tin.
I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin.
Is evil in a clam? In a trap?
No. It is open. On it I was stuck.
Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web.
Be still if I fill its ebb.
Ew, a spider… eh?
We sleep. Oh no!
Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position.
Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name.
Both, one… my names are in it.
Murder? I’m a fool.
A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash,
A Goddam level I lived at.
On mail let it in. I’m it.
Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet!
A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name.
Name not one bottle minus an ode by me:
“Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog”
Evil is a deed as I live.
Dammit I’m mad.

看完後覺得超級燒腦,只能說:

WOW
(⬆️最適合回文的回文反應😂)

大家還看過什麼有趣的回文嗎?
