Since I've been ranting on Twitter about remakes, I thought I would give my remake thoughts again.
For those who are confuse, lemme explain.
I don't mind remakes. Just as long as credit is given, I'm cool with it. But I'm not going to cry when there is a "remake" involve. I've seen this way to much from South Indian fans who cry that Bollywood is remaking a movie. So what.
Actually, now I think more about it. Do people complain when an oldie or another Indian language is being remade more? Nah.I read just the same amount of complaints about when a Bollywood movie is copying a Hollywood movie.
To me, a film is remade and changed a bit for their intended audience. I love the Bollywood remakes of Korean and Hollywood movies. For example, I looooove Awarapan way more than the Korean original, A Bittersweet Life. Just like I prefer Aamir over the Filipino original, Cavite. Or even Murder over the Hollywood original, Unfaithful.
Now I don't like every remake. For example, Partner comes no where close to the original Hollywood version, Hitch. Or I See You and the Hollywood original, Just Like Heaven.
As you may or may not know, Hmong culture is close to non existence, only because there was never anything written about my culture.
We have adapted a lot of food from other Asian cuisines. Although I may be cooking papaya salad and sticky rice. I made the Hmong style version of it.
Maybe I shouldn't compare food and movies? Or with music? For some reason, when it comes to the entertainment world, it has more value, or territorial? Who is creative and such? I don't know.
Don't tell me you never thought about seeing a Telugu or Hindi version of a Hollywood movie before. You even thought about your dream cast to go along with it.
Wow, I've been ranting on and on again. Sorry for this post. I haven't done much "reviewing" lately. I was hoping to have a remake wish post again but instead did this rant :D
