I think that people in the states should try to appreciate foreign film a little more but eh, it will never happen... Closed minded bastards. Also I would absolutely Shit if they remade Densha Otoko. It would never work with American actors/backdrop
there's a difference between ripping off and remaking. virtually all movies rip off each other.
sure, there are plenty of foreign films people are missing out on. but all the same, the majority of imports suck. i visited korea and japan a few months ago and saw a few. horrible, cliched crap.
