Yeah all the remakes are pretty crap. The only upside might be that people will actually check out the originals or get at least a bit of interest for the asian market. But I don't think even that will happen much.

I'd almost have expected that kind of thread to pop up out of the sudden.. so glad you brought it up right on here.

I've actually had the same debate on many different BR related forums/messageboards before, so am kind of tired by the whole argument... Of course that Hollywood, at least the more of the commercial movie makers, suck. Of course there are problems arising from getting someone who could do justice to original works [actors, screenplay writers, director...]. But, I also think there could arise interesting piece of work... if not the leading example of how to do a good movie remake of older and far more popular original, then example how to NOT do a bad movie; simply via not following the method used for the filming of the movie presented.

All in all, it would be GOOD for SOMETHING.

When I'm thinking about it, some audiences have rejected Batoru Rowaiaru: Chinkonka too, saying it is immature, lacking a psychological depth of the first movie, with badly written screenplay, over emotional scenes that seem hysteric and not holding true to the characters, too anti-US, pro-terrorist, all that kind of uncanny points... and I personally think BR2 was a good movie, and if not good, then at least bearable... What my point is, there have been exclamations like "This is not REAL BR, don't take it seriously, guys" as a form of denial to express those feelings of being dissapointed in expectations and so on and on... and some people even don't think BR2 is happening in the very same world, let alone story, as batoru rowaiaru, the original... So why couldn't be there fans of original BR who would think about this "remake" as something that is of a diff universe, too?

After all, if you don't like it, you can just laugh at it. Recruiting new people into BR might be harder then, but at least fans that don't stop at the "bad American movie=bad Battle Royale" would be much more worth it, having came through all the pain of watching the bad movies and yet still being full of desire to know more about the phenomenon of BR. Like, making more devoted fans to original works if they actually managed to get that far and look for them...

That is about all what I have to say for now. Will come to this topic later, if time and desire permit me to answer.
