Asian films vs American remakes
Okay, have anyone watched an Asian film and then see the American remake of it much later? Impressions on both? Idk, I feel like Asians are mad good at it and then I don't know how the freak Americans mess up. Like, American films are made for dummies or something.
I saw The Tale of Two Sisters (Korean) and The Uninvited (American version) as well as Shutter (Thai) and Shutter (American version). I actually ended up laughing the whole time during all the "scary" parts in the American version of shutter cause I thought it was so ridiculously bad.
I hated Ringu because it was so silly, the american movie The Ring is so much better and so much more scary, the Japanese original was just retarded.
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

A saw a tale of two sisters and enjoyed it. I didn't know there was an american version...
I thought the infernal affairs movies were better than the departed, but the departed was really good too. Someone seeing the departed first might like it more than the asian counterpart tho...
TBH I don't watch that many Asian movies, I don't often get a chance to. I'm also kinda put of by the over abundance of horror movies and gore fest martial arts movies.

I thought The Departed (remake of Infernal Affairs) was pretty good different but good
THE SASSY GIRL remake by american.. I love this movie when korean version.. Its so amazing love story of couple.. love it!!!
I dont think I have seen any remakes of that sort. But I have seen remakes of American movies into Asian movies..
I only tend to watch American version as i don't understand other Asian languages or there are no subtitles.
