Don't you hate people that ''Hate'' America for the simple reason that it makes ''remakes''.
Posted 1/21/09 , edited 1/22/09
Personally I HATE it when I hear people say ''Oh,another sucky American remake,like seriously do you guys know what it means for it to be a ''HOLLYWOOD" Remake? That is really good news,that means that something from the original caught the american directors or producers eye. It is edited in a way for the American audience,not for anyone else.All these fans say this and that about remakes,I agree not many remakes have come close to the original of any other movie out there, as well as dramas. I think the people that say they hate remakes are stupid,cause I mean there is the the Korean version of HYD,so now what they copied the Japanese version?(The reason I don't count meteor shower or whatever was because the original HYD came from Japan from the Manga),cause they(Korean directors/producers) couldn't come up with any new ideas,and they suck at dramas(not to mention they changed a lot of the things from the japanese version,but that was just so it would appeal to the Korean audience). So NO! Not at all do they suck at making movies or dramas! So STOP saying America can't come up with new things so they steal others ideas,it just makes you sound ignorant.


=======================================
Look at it this way as well, for the people who say America is not creative with their movies,is it not the same with Asia,who get most of their movies and dramas from Manga? Exactly,Don't be a hypocrite.

I think remakes, regardless of who makes them, are on the questionable side. I have to agree with the original poster and say that the amount of I hate America-ness on these forums b/c of remakes is unnecessary. U do not have to watch the remakes, I rarely do.

I don't get why people say things like "it will ruin the original". Although it's the same storyline, how does it ruin the original? The original's already out there, people like it. In fact, people like it so much they're making another one. The new one might turn out bad, but it won't affect how good the original is.

But I also think too many remakes of the same thing gets boring. No need to make a HYD for every single country. It's like watching the same movie 10 times in a row. There might be small differences you notice every time that you didn't notice before, but the story and ending is the same. Besides that, most American remakes, compared to the Asian originals, are worse.

I do have an issue with some American remakes of things- namely the American versions of British comedy shows, because generally the humour just gets lost somewhere and you end up with something too horrific to watch. But as with all things, I thing give it a go if it can be done well, and always respect the original story.

Remaking is evil...
Posted 1/21/09
i don't think they r ruining the original...
like 'the ring' and 'the grudge' they started off as Japanese film then turned to US
Even thou both of the US version is crap i still remember those version in japanese
as VERY gd film...

If they do want to remake films leave the horror movies becoz Japanese and Korean goes to another level with them...

I hate those people... I agree with the HYD one.. Stated out with the Taiwanesse version (I know, I know it's from manga....) And when the Japanese came out, people like "OH my GAWDDD, this gonna be awesome!!!" And then before the Korean version came out, everyone was like "I can't wait for thisssss!!!"... "OOOOOOOhhhh, the casts are so freakin hawwwwwwtt."

When the korean version came out, it turned out to be not that good, the acting was bad and stuff, but people were very supportive, like "oppa hwaiting" or "it's allright, it's the first time they act...". I was wondering if America did the remake... people will be shouting and saying that American is not creative and stuff.. It really pissed me off...

I'm no asian so I have no reason to hate the America for remaking but I think they made some wrong choice like my sassy girl(I don't like the movies by the way) coz it simply dose not fit the west culture and trying to change the story to fit, the idea of the movie will be lost, but remaking something like Death note is an excellent choice coz the story line fit in every culture and I have high hopes for it, I did no like the Japanese movie much.

coz like when it becomes a big hit in America for like the ring and the grudge, ppl think it's so frikin awesome but they dont know that it's originally from japan and they think that America's soooo creative and stuff.
well i live in montreal and ppl just doesnt know that they come from japan, all the credits then goes to the u.s. and it sucks. Even if the original one is far betta, they'll never watch them cos its AZN...
that's why i dont like u.s for makin remakes.
i think they should just put the original ones in the theater, and do their remakes, and then compare them...then let's decide for us which ones betta. it's more fair and square.

u guys say that the korean hyd isnt good, and that\s bcuz u had the chance to see the japanese hyd, so let them see the original one tooooo

If I have any grudge on America... It's because of your recently booted president... George W Bush Jr.

It would be dumb to hate a country just because it makes remakes.
