I really don't understand why you would remake a film that's only 6 years old.

Because pure-blooded Americans can't watch those slanty-eyed gook films.

Its the same asshat who ruined Dark Water, Jyu-on, and Ringu. Apparantly he wants the film to be about kids in "Juvie", which totally RUINS THE CONCEPT OF THE MOVIE!

>>5 he wants the film to be about kids in "Juvie"

Did you even read it? He said he DIDN'T want to do that.

Why do they remake a film and not even say the film they were based on for example the Ring was based on the Japanese film Ringu. Which causes no Americans to appreciate Asian Movies :-(

(~.~) What's Next A Disney Remake of Battle Royale?

USA is also Remaking Densha Otoko the movie:-(

What? Don't say such things without evidence. There is no Densha Otoko remake that I can find. The Japanese movie is being released in the USA. That is all.

mmm i wonder how it will go. culturally aren't japanese and american school systen very different?

from what i understand, in japanese schools your teacher has a very big role in the students life. rather than american school which once the bell rings...the teacher is not resposible for looking after their students.

I dunno, this MIGHT turn out to be good, you never know until you leave the theater if a movie is good or bad.

12 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-08 23:42 ID:9VavkGZK

I too feel it is un-neccesary to remake a brilliant six year old movie, but I'm not too surprised...

I just feel the purists will hate it...

I hate people who are so logic defyingly positive.

Did you go into Herbie's Fully Loaded with that attitude?

Fuck remakes. Remakes suck. I got a better idea. How about Hollywood comes up with their own ideas, stops making shitty formulaic films and maybe they will become as exciting as Asian cinema is nowadays.

Remakes of foreign films are never as good as the original. It isn't like these Asian classics aren't easily available. Why does Hollywood feel the need to Americanise it for an American audience? Why can't they just watch the fucking original?

Battle Royal Remake??? how original besides the origal battle royal was banned in the U.S maybe because of the school shooting.. and now a remake American rip-off movies always sucks bigtime.. thats for sure..

Because us proud Americans can't listen to brain-rotting Jap-speak and read at the same time!

Hehe. Yeah, I guess. The USA loves to dub films. Australia doesn't dub films. Ever. And most people won't even watch dubbed anime.

19 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-09-08 02:19 ID:vvPWC+Ty

>>18

yep.. and im of them i just dont like dubbed movies, and tv-series, specially in anime..

20 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-09-08 04:11 ID:Xvdpic+2

Dubbed shows are for people who can't read!

After reading the novel, I didn't like the movie so much. They're not much alike, I think, as the novel is a lot more heavy on the psychological problems of the participants, which is logical, as it is a book, full of thoughts, which a movie can't do. I don't think an Americanized remake can do better, though, and hate the thought of this.

It's true that the book is way different from the movie, but I like them both equally.

Though I get the feeling I would have enjoyed the book a lot more if I knew Japanese and had read it in the original language. The translator used the word "approximately" like 30 times. That isn't even an exaggeration.

23 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-11-21 13:02 ID:Heaven

usa is remaking every movie there is to be seen and claiming it to be theirs. lozl

24 Name: Oily Skin : 2006-12-27 16:42 ID:G2W0Z2tw

why even remake a movie that is good as it is? anyone seen BR 2?

not as good maybe but still ok to watch

25 Name: Mike : 2007-01-30 04:48 ID:/wOFWMU+

Regardless of what anyone says I am still going to give the remake a chance. Sure I may rip my eyes out of there sockets, but at I least I saw it and have a reason to complain.

Apparently the masterpiece that is Oldboy, is being remade in the US, but this could just be rumours from places like imdb.
Does anyone know anything about this? or is it just smoke and mirrors?
