i would just like to know your opinions on the fact the Hollywood just keeps remaking Asian Movies. And then, those movies become a hit without the original movie(asian movie such as the Ring) even having much credit. I believe that America should just let the Asian movies go on theaters with subs. For example, im Korea, when an American movie goes on theaters, it is in English with Subtitles. What do you guys think about this?

my point are:
1- Asian Movies being remade into Hollywood movies seem like they don't give enough
credit to the original movie and director.
ex: when The Ring came out, majority of people never knew that Ringu was the original movie until it came out on Dvd about almost a year later.
2- Why not just bring Asian movies on theaters, that way everyone can see the capacity of the Asian Movie Industry.

Well, the Asian directors get paid by Hollywood for remaking their films.
The Departed was a remake of Internal Affairs, a Hong Kong film, and it won an oscar.
I think all the directors made a large profit.

Yeah, there have been trailers on tv but it looks kinda lame. I doubt it'll be better than the original.

also they're making a dragonball live action movie starring james something..


Wth?!?! They're gonna make a nana movie with Linsey Lohan? I've never heard of something like that. I don't even watch nana but I've heard a bit about it, but why are they even gonna make a movie about it? DI the Japanese even make something like that yet? Oh wait...yeah...I think they did >.< I forgot...

But I've heard about the Dragonball movie, I wanna see it, it seems so interesting. I can just go and laugh if it's kinda weird and stuff.

its true, i even hear miley cyrus that hana mantantana girl is auditioning. And yeah dragonball. i'll be there on the first day it opens. It sounds like its going to be a complete fail but then again they thought spiderman would be too. And that turned out to be a huge hit.


You have got to be kidding me? Hanna Montana? Lindsy Lohan? NANA the movie in America? Do they even know that it orignated in Japan? There is alot of out of sex marriage in that Anime. And HM and LL is only like, 15 and 20. You sure there parents will let them do something like that? I mean i know LL's mom and dad will, but HM's parents problay not.


wow...omg...now it makes me wanna see what's gonna happen in that american nana. I never watched/read nana before, but now I'll go see the movie maybe, and I bet all the kids who like hana montana would wanna watch the movie and then they'll go and see something...that they shouldn't be seeing!

The Eye
The Ring
Dark Waters
One Missed Call
probably much more

And they're workin on My Sassy Girl

Most Asian movies do really well, so the peeps in Hollywood probably figure they can do the same and remake them. I don't really like the idea. I mean it's not a racist thing, of course. But, I just think, in a lot of cases, when movies are remade they get all screwed up. Why mess up the reputation of a good movie??

I'm anxious to see MSG when it comes out, though..oughta be fun

N, I didn't read the first post. =\
