6 Thoughts on “Funny Games

    “Also, it’s a little annoying how we keep remaking movies shot-for-shot, what’s the point? I get that having a version in English means people who won’t watch subtitles will actually see it but it’s just so bizarre.”

    Yeah, I’m not big on the cross cultural remakes either, American or otherwise. A good portion of a movie’s style and personality is rooted in the culture in which it was made and you obviously lose a lot of that when it is remade in a different language.

    But all that matters to many movie makers is money though…

    • I agree, I think most of the time it has a lot to do with the culture with how the movie works, which is why most Asian horror don’t translate to American films. This movie, however, had very little to do with the culture, I’ll admit that.

    I saw the English version because it was something we randomly picked up in Blockbuster and I didn’t know there was an original version until after.

    Also…. I don’t think this is because I’m American, I just don’t like it when any movie does something this movie did (I don’t want to spoil it). Breaking down the 4th wall doesn’t bother me, it’s just the way they did it.

  3. I say go against tradition and watch Xmas movies at Halloween and vice-versa. I strongly recommend the animated Tokyo Godfathers, which is loosely based on John Ford’s 3 Godfathers.
