since i already saw and own A Tale of Two Sisters and then went to watch The Uninvited in theaters i was not scared much and a lil bummed out how i knew the whole story. But the movie was still well made and had good acting. As for 50 First Dates, that movie is still awesome even being an American remake.

If you've watched both of the versions , which would do you prefer?




Not to be bias or anything, but Americans should really think of their movie ideas
by themselves. Did you know the movie "50 first dates" is a remake of this Chinese
film, and they remade my sassy girl. & YES, there remaking DEATHNOTE. oh gosh
there's probably other movies that I can't think of right now -- but they've remade
LOTS of movies from asia.


You know it's not like Asia is the home of originality....you're making a big deal out of nothing. A remake is a remake if you don't like it then don't watch it and get over it. LIke HYD, I watched MG and HYD. After that I decided I don't need to watch anymore versions. I'm not going to bitch and moan about all these remakes instead i'm just not going to watch them b/c at the end of the day bitching and moaning isn't really going to stop the fact that its being remade and you're really just getting worked up for nothing. We just gotta let it go.


I kinda like the american version better anyway but that's just my opinion.

I like to add that Asia has already remade and plan to remake half of our American film. I'm sure everybody recalled Cellular got remade in Hong Kong as Connected.



Original American version




Hong Kong remake of the original American film



China/Hong Kong will be remaking What Women Want. Andy Lau will play Mel Gibson's character and Gong Li will be playing Helen Hunt's character.

Also Japan has already remade Sideway, they're going to remake some of our American film:



Yes, Japan will be remaking Ghost according to several sources, here's one of them.



Japan has also confirmed that a Japanese remake of Working Girl is in production.



Japan will also remake An Affair to Remember (which by the way has been remade several time, I believe 2 has been done in India).

So yeah Asia is remaking our film, who know Korea could remake some of our. I would love to see South Korea to remake these film:



I like the story so much in this movie that I thought the story could be adapted by any country, I think South Korea should remake this. Replace World War 2 with Korean War.



Atonement has a great story, why not remake this for South Korea. Just like the Notebook, change the setting from World War 2 to Korean War.



My mom love this movie, and I like the storyline so I thought why not remake it for the South Korean market.


I like to say that yes Asia is going to remake maybe more American film. To me, that's a good thing because we've been remaking a lot of Asian film, why not have Asia remake some of ours to even the odds (the irony is that US film company is the one that is helping with the remake of their own film). Also, I like to see more of Asia remaking our film. I can think of many good film that could get a Asian remake, I hope Asia doesn't go too far for the remaking like I don't want Asia to remake Friday the 13th, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Judge Dredd, Iron Man, or anything like that.

said "all movies" but she didn't really mean ALL of them. She just said that meaning that many are remakes of Japanese ones and it's true.

Asia making remakes of American ones? Do they make remakes as much as America does? I don't think so =D

Actually it looks like it might happen. Didn't you bother to look at my post like above (you know the one with the movie poster). I was talking about that. Yeah it looks like we may see more Asia remake of American film. Here's something you might want to read from Newsweek. As I said:

-Japan remade Sideways, and they're going to remake Ghost, An Affair to remember, and Working Girl. One of the article about Japan's remake of Ghost got my attention.


Ghost isn’t the only movie getting this treatment. Fox is prepping a Japanese remake of the Cary Grant classic An Affair to Remember, and we’re likely to hear about other Japenese remakes of proven American films in the remainder of this year.


-China/Hong Kong remade Cellular (as Connected), and Blood Simple, they also remade High School Musical for their country. Now it's reported they'll remake What Women Want (as I stated above), and maybe even more.

-Korea only remade the Good, The Bad, and The Ugly as this film. There maybe a chance a American romance could get a Korean remake.

You complain about America remaking Asian movie, are you going to complain about Asia remaking our film. What happen if (and I would love to see this happen):

Japan or Hong Kong remake this film:



Hong Kong remake this:



or HK could remake this:



or HK could remake this:



Or Japan could remake this:



Are you going to complain about that if this really was to happen. Because it may happen and the best part for all the Asian remake of American film, US did help with the Asian remake of American film. If you're going to complain about American remaking Asian film, then you'll have to complain about Asia remaking American film, otherwise you're a hypocrite or as I call them Asian supremacist.

You know when people heard about the Asian remaking American film, the people that hated the American remake of Asian film started to show their Asian supremacy side as in the "Asian remake will be superior over the original American film", F(bleep) the American version, Asian remake conquer all". :tongue2:

You see there are people that pull double standard a lot of time when it comes to remake. That's why I'm glad Asia is remaking American film, not only for balancing reason and to see how Asia adapt our film. So I can see if there are weeaboos/Asian Supremacist pulling double standard when it comes to remake.

Do you understand why I have to do this and to probably test you? I have to make sure you're not a Asian supremacist.

Well now you know, any country can do a remake. Hell Asia can remake a US film if they wanted to. Now they got the chance.
