i find korean movies usually have no feeling of warmth and can be real dull sometimes, and some american movies are just plain old rubbish like shark boy and lava girl or something like that but personally i like oriental movies cos im oriental myself XD but i like movies like pirates of the Caribbean

Muhaha I love Pirates of The Caribbean! I usually watch like cartoonish stuff like Over The Hedge in american movies.. I'm so kiddish but once I watched one of the non kiddish ones and I died, it wasn't actiony or had a good plot, it was just there

in general i love Korean/Japanese/Chinese movies/dramas a lot more than American. They're a lot better. Some Asian Acton movies are more action packed than American. A few of the comedy movies (Like Sex is Zero) are a lot better than American movies because a few American movies are trying to hard to be funny when it's not.
I Hate American remakes, they ruin it most of the time, just like when they ruin the Dubbed Bleach, Naruto and One Piece in Cartoon planet.
The only show I watch on TV now is Prison Break and Ugly Betty

Korean movies, definately. Like everyone said about the remakes, they make everything worse. Il Mare was perfect by itself but then The Lake House came out which completely ruined the image that you're supposed to get. Basically mostly everything that America tries to remake turns out bad, and usually it never shows any credit about where the concept is from. Yes they usually say "based on a novel by so and so" but when it comes to remakes of foreign movies, they don't mention anything. That's what gets me annoyed sometimes. And ^ is right about the dubbed animes. That's why I don't like anime anymore like I used to.

Some American movies are nice though, don't get me wrong.

You know, I've seen both American and Korean. They're not bad, but I think that American movies need more originality. I can't say much about Korean movies, I haven't seen enough of it to make a good argument.

Korean Movies/dramas.
Asian dramas. They're the bomb.

American and Korean movies are way too diverse to compare! XD But, currently, I very much prefer Kmovies.

Nowhere did I say they were directly similar. I said there are some words in Korean that phonetically sound identical to Japanese words, but have completely different meanings.

Hanaseyo is one of those words. No clue how it's spelled in Korean. But it's their generic 'welcome' or 'hello' phrase. So it's a greeting. In Japanese, it is pretty much a forced requested from the individual to inform another individual to let go of them. (ie: Let go of my arm you jerk!)

With that in mind, a Korean would come up to me and say said phrase. My mind wouldn't automaticly think of what they're saying in Korean. It would go straight to Japanese. I would then extrapolate the english definition of what they say. That is where my irritation came into play. It wasn't so much at the language itself, but my inability to correctly translate what was being said without having a mental block prevent me from fully comprehending it.

Doesn't help that I was raised to hate the Korean's. Though I (in no way) feel that way in the slightest. Dated a few Korean girls while I was there. Almost gave my mother a heart attack when I said I was serious about one of them.

Regardless, that's my plight. Would like to return there though. Miss the days of getting pirated movies on DVD before they even started being shown in theaters. And getting hammered off Soju and finding the nearest Yaki cart for some cheap fun.


hanaseyo..? dat's not how they say it....more lik "yoboseyo!" ...to me.....and no..korean language is almost totally different from japanese..

and yeh....korean movies r pretty awesom, but i watch more american movies becuz i understand ther jks and other stuff than korean jks...in horror movies, i prefer watchin Japanese one...lik 'the ring' and 'juon'(<idk how to spell it..it's called grudge...in english title)

I prefer Korean cinema myself. American film is based almost entirely around special effects, action scenes, and sex. It's like watching the same damn director for every movie. Not to say that there aren't some brilliant movies on both sides. Korean film takes more time to pay attention to scenery and emotion. It's not for everyone I just prefer it. Movies like 3-Iron, Spring Summer Fall Winter and Spring, Friend, Memories of Murder, Public Enemy, Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and One Fine Spring Day are good examples of well made Korean films.
