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.

========================================
Do You agree or disagree? Why?


lol this is what i ALWAYS say about taiwanese dramas becuz there jockers too. but anywho i think america does make "some" remakes mostly horror movies but most the stuff that comes are actually original. Remakes are remakes some turn out good and some bad. Most people get super biased cuz they have seen the original and automatically say the remake sucks when they didnt either see it or have given it a chance. Yes the ring/grudge sucked but i like the uninvited and Juno american version more.

one word Ridicules!

I don't mind American movies or whatever remakes because oh my god the whole concept of remakes is because of the FANS ! okay? its not because they want to take all the credit.. its just because they thought maybe the audience will like it! people are ssooo obsessed with the fact that its a remake sometimes they don;t look beyond that! the whole thing about poor girl falls inlove with arrogant rich guy is wayy to common ( referring to HYD)... mangas arent all that 'original' either ok? they mangaka must of got the idea from somewhere. Inspiration! Mangakas are not born geniuses.. ... maybe people just need to stop being bias? and mean? LOL i sound so kiddy ~ I just want to say accept new things ok? btw I'm asian and I dont mind movie remakes

Its usually true though. Maybe im just bias becuase I seen the original but people are entitled to their opinions. Who cares if they think it sucks. Just leave them and their negative opinion be. The remake Hollywood versions generates more money anyways. Plus, free promo for the original version. it's a win-win situation.

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


Damn right jo...I totally agree - Hollywood is almost out of ideas and just how many "famous" scripwriters live there? geez'us...I also agree with the other members that the asian humor gets lost in "translation" - like My Sassy Girl <-- like seriously did they really think that by copying they could get the same response?
And then those scary movies like the ring and such - the asian versions are so much better than the american
So hate me if U want to - but it doesn´t change my opinion of Hollywood sometimes...(btw I don't HATE Hollywood; I just thik they could be a tad more creative)



You act as if Asian countries don't make remakes...They probably remake more shows and mangas from other asian countries than American remakes of Asian media. Hollywood is the movie capital of the world. They make so many movies a year that there's bound to be crappy ones. For every new crap movie or "unoriginal remake" there's a new unique, creative, and outstanding movie bound to come out. So I really don't think that Hollywood lacks creativity. I hate how people only bash Hollywood but when it's an Asian country making a remake everyone's so excited and can't wait for it to come out. Hypocrites

Other then Indian "bollywood." America produces more movies than any other country in the world. I believe Korea made something like 100 movies last year when America can make up to 1000. Of out of these 1000 how many of these are remakes? ...Not many... and a lot of the remakes are old American films.

I feel like even though America has some sucky remakes... its still promoting the original producers. You are bringing something popular into a new country. Everyone i know, knows japan made the ring. If America didn't make these remakes. PEOPLE wouldnt see it even if its not as good as the original, at least it's being seen.

Don't forget for a lot of americans, canadians and europeans... japanese and korean culture is a whole new world. One its hard to find LEGAL subbed verisons of shows... TWO its subbed... THREE unless you are use to watching and know the culture, it might not be good. There are some japanese and korean movies i cannot stand because i dont know the culture well enough. Most 'old' films i cannot get into because i'm so lost. Like Jumong and stuff.

Asian countries make more remakes compared to how many films they produce.

i dont mind remakes. ANyways... with the more increasing popularity of asian actors and actresses in hollywood, we might start seeing japanese, korean and chinese stars coming to hollywood. Which would bring the singers... and it would be cool. xD

First of all...I didn´t say that asian countries don´t make remakes - but you have to understand that most of the asian countries share the same humor and such - so there really isn´t that much of a difference.

And you got me totally wrong cuz I agree that Hollywood makes good movies too - but those movies are american and not remakes of asian movies. I feel the same way about asian countries remaking american movies - the thing is that they tend to make them bad. There are many things that changes when remaking movies - and some of those things are too good to change. I dunno how to explain it - but let´s just say that there is a good difference between the asian and the american way of making a movie special.
Anyways - don´t call people hypocrites without knowing them...cuz I´m not

Rather than remaking, they should just slap subtitles on the original and release it in America. They don't remake animes.

i just hate the word hate i don't hate them because of the remake's they need to help all the asian celeb's that want to break thru the us and the rest of the world that's all
asian also have made some remake's of movies like true intentions it's an french movie there is a korean remake of it
so i guess when they smell money anybody want some of it even if they are not asian
but american's have been making so many remake's so i understand why asian ppl think like that
they need to work hard on their own ideas on make new movies
that are not remake's of any asian movies/dramas

That's cause anime is really considered only to those who watch it on T.V,they do not think the American audience is large for it,and nobody likes reading subtitles,not even Asians or any other race for that matter, who I have seen watching American movies with subtitles like to watch them like that.
