Since I never, ever, ever get tired of watching this movie, especially the last half hour or so of it, I will hold out hope that this remake can do it justice.
 
2012-08-20 07:02:36 PM
You know, I'd be interested to see how this turns out.
 
2012-08-20 07:02:43 PM
As long as they get Toshiro Mifune to play the Eastwood character, this will be cool.
 
2012-08-20 07:02:58 PM
I like where this is going.
 
2012-08-20 07:03:41 PM
Duck I says.
 
2012-08-20 07:04:22 PM
I'm....surprisingly okay with this.

Holy shiat that sounds awesome, even if the movie flops.

A western being turned into a samurai epic? The circle is complete.

Was "Unforgiven" the movie where Morgan Freeman played the Wise Black Man, doling out sage advice to the White antihero / quasi-protagonist? Morgan Freeman was so good in that role. In that one movie where he played that character.

I'm glad to know that Japan shall be unleashing a wave of awesome sometime in the future.

Now that would be some impressive movie magic.

If by "doling out sage advice" you mean "pointing out that some kid doesn't see very well at one point" then yes, you've clearly seen and accurately remember this film.

No, you're thinking of "Shawshank". and by "Shawshank", I mean "Amistad". And by "Amistad", I meant "Hard Rain". and by "Hard Rain", I meant "Bruce Almighty". and "Bruce Almight" I meant "Robin Hood". And by "Robin Hood" I meant "Million Dollar Baby". And by.....

Fitting, seeing how many westerns ripped off old samurai movies

I wish i knew how to post the " I"M ok with this".jpeg,

If someone who is kind and willing to troll the sh*t out of me then actually tell me how, i'll be super serially happy.

Let's not forget that Eastwood broke out into stardom in a remake of a Japanese film. That film was called 'A Fitstful of Dollars' and was a remake of 'Yokimbo' by Akira Kurosawa.

Did you mean: Yojimbo

"Hell, I even thought I was dead 'til I found out it was just that I was in Nebraska."

Yeah, usually it's the other way around.

So Kurosawa made easterns which were inspired by westerns, and his work served as the inspiration for further westerns, and the sequel to one of those westerns is being remade as an eastern. That's two and a half circles of completion!
 
2012-08-20 07:41:01 PM
As someone who was just griping about Hollywood remakes of foreign films*, I'm oddly OK with such a reversal. Foreign (or independent) remakes of box office classics might well yield some very cool stuff.

*I'm actually OK with re-visioning a movie (a la Seven Samurai / Magnificent Seven), just don't make an English language version of the same movie.

So do you just use your hand?
/curious how the plot will be similar, i don't think samurais would give 2 shiats about a cut up whore, but we'll see

You're right they wouldn't, but if they were Ronin they would care, simply for the reward though.

I just hope they don't go the 13 Assassins route and make it where practically everybody dies.

Depends on how badly cut up she is. If they go 13 Assassins style, then I can see them caring.

Wasn't the flower and willow world pretty well respected in those quarters? I can see a samurai taking interest in that.

Maybe I'm just a blood thirsty asshole, but was anyone else disappointed when Eastwood's characters says "I'll shoot anyone who comes out" and the Madame that put up the bounty in the first place walks out and doesn't get shot?

Well, practically everybody in Unforgiven did die. At least those who made the mistake of being in the bar where Ned's body was on display.

/13 Assassins was an awesome movie.

one of the more underrated movies of the 90s. arguably Eddie Murphy's last great work.

So would I. The more I think about it, the better it sounds.

Pity Akira Kurosawa has passed away. This would be perfect for him.

Perhaps I'm a simple man. Perhaps I've been on Fark a bit longer than normal folk might approve of... but I can't deny that I may never tire of hearing voice of god say "titty sprinkles" for so long as I wander this ball of rock.

ahhh, maybe a geisha gets cut up? Aside from being lovely dancers, aren't they really considered confined slaves, that are treated very well?

THE WORLD: Americans are remaking (fill in the blank foreign movie/TV series)? It's going to suck. How can they do that? They can't come with anything original. They ruin everything.
AMERICANS: (Fill in the blank country) is remaking (American movie/TV series.) Oh, that sounds so cool. I want to see that.
