Here’s an interesting thing. I always thought Jimmy Wang Yu hated the japanese. I mean, he spent half of his career beating evil japanese conquerors. Many of his movies are very anti-japanese. Then, in 1971, he goes to Japan to make a japanese movie with a japanese film crew (Zatoichi Meets the One Armed Swordsman). Was this some sort of an apology? Or maybe he was just trying to say the political content of his movies is not supposed to be taken so seriously…
i have always wondered about that, but i cant say i know why.
Probably i didn’t get yr point, coz you switched rapidly in the last 2 messages.
I love asian cinema also, otherwise i wouldn’t watch it.
But that hasn’t anything to do with critizing some movies as being bad.
I mean, a watch everyday a movie, can’t be all good and haven’t to be.
BR 2 is a good movie, why should i say that ?
i was just making a point that Asian cinema seems to be rated more harsh than American films. Diceman’s comment about liking Doom more than BR2 kind of seemed strange.
I wasnt saying pretend you like a film, but Asians do tend to make films like Hollywood, Films that are merely entertainment. We can’t always assume that they are going to make thought-provoking arthouse and precise and perfect kung fu.
It was just an observation, i got a bit angry though. Sorry abotu that.
