  1. Thanks for the comment. And I’m not surprised that the movie did poorly in Japan. The movie wasn’t made for the Japanese audience, so I understand that part, just like Memoirs of a Geisha had non-Japanese Asian actresses in lead roles. These movies are for American audiences who don’t know any better. What can we do?
    Makes me wonder if the Japanese actors involved in these productions ever have reservations about working on such projects?

      Yup, you are absolutely right. Hollywood does not know any better. Nowadays, I find that foreign movies remade for an American audience are not as good as the original. For example, I saw the South Korean movie OldBoy directed by Park Chan-wook and thought it was great. When Spike Lee announced he was making it, I was shocked. Don’t get me wrong. Spike Lee is one of my favorite directors, but this was a mistake. Besides money, why do you think Hollywood likes remake foreign movies catering to an American audience? Obviously, something is wrong with this picture.
