Also, wasn't there a chinese portion to Ironman3 that wasn't even shown in US theatres?
propaganda, indeed.

Not counting early on, when the hero loses his brother.

I considered posting a warning, but decided it was fairly pointless since I was able to figure that out within 10 seconds of them being introduced.

Expect films, especially blockbusters, to take more and more of a pro China slant. They can break box office records before they ever sell a ticket in the states.

It can't be worse than how Hollywood has treated the Japanese.

In Red Dawn, the Chinese were changed to North Koreans.

HempHead: In Red Dawn, the Chinese were changed to North Koreans.


Really? A North Korean land invasion of the U.S.? I knew they changed it to not the Chinese since the Chinese own one of the largest theater chains in North America but I didn't think they would use the best Korea.
 
2013-08-28 09:44:32 AM  
I'm pretty sure Pacific Rim is aimed at kids/manchildren who want an excuse to buy the newest robot toys.
 
2013-08-28 09:46:09 AM  
I would have thought that the Chinese cut replaced the Gipsy Danger with the Crimson Typhoon, with Mako falling for all three of the Chinese brothers.

A Mexican director doing a movie with the Japanese trope of giant monster critters (and inspired by a Francisco Goya painting), starring two Brits and a Japanese actress, and filmed in Toronto is American propaganda?

"Soldiers should sharpen their eyes and enforce a 'firewall' to avoid ideological erosion when watching American movies," he warned. "More importantly, they should strengthen their combat capability to safeguard national security and interests."

Or maybe they could just sit back and enjoy watching giant robots beat the crap out of giant monsters for a couple of hours.

Yes. All those non-American details are there to cover up the propaganda!

Yep. Never mind that there were only two main American characters. (And only two minor American characters in Hannibal and Becket's brother.) Everyone else was non-American. Also, the American didn't save the day by himself. It was the Brit and the Australian who sacrificed themselves and the Japanese who came up with sword at the last moment. Mako, more or less, was the real hero of the story. Becket was her sidekick.

They've hidden the propaganda so well, the intended targets won't even see it!  It's genius!

Kind of like "The Grandmaster" where China left out that he fled to Hong Kong to escape the communist regime.

If that was true, I would already own all the gundam-style/quality model kits of the jaegers. Its cool though, idiot marketers, I guess you don't want my money.

Yeah, the American jaeger should have had a beer-gut. They could have used the extra space for more weapons.
Plus the lower center of gravity would have made it more stable.

The movie intrigues me... I saw a commercial for it and then the name Martin Scorsese... WTF?  How is he even connected to this movie?

FTFA:

He saidPacific Rim, which has grossed more than $100 million in China, failed to convey a peaceful message but instead "exported the U.S.'s rebalancing of its Asia-Pacific strategy."

But according to farkers, because it did mild business in the US, it was a bomb.

I watched it last night.  It was gloriously bad.  To the point I actually kind of liked it.

Yup, just like that crappy Homefront game. Because suddenly the Norks are gonna stop eating tree bark so they can launch one satellite and wreck house on the entire continental US...

There's no Zero in that picture.  There are two F-14s and a T-6 Texan.

Dear PRC,

So very sorry that Guillermo del Toro  and the studio didn't bow down and kiss Chinese Communist Party ass like the staff producing Iron Man 3 did. I know it absolutely horrifies you in knowing that there are some US scripts that haven't been pre-approved by Beijing still being allowed to be filmed, but hey, you don't own all of America yet.

A Japanese woman being the real hero isn't likely going to make the Chinese any happier about the movie.

I hear that despite her role in a successful US film, Rinko Kikuchi is despised back in Japan for daring to not start her career by being a cute little singing idol or gravure model, and went straight to Hollywood as an actress.

I want a Robotech or Gundam movie, and this is as close as they have. So I watched it. Not too bad as far as entertainment went. My six-year-old son enjoyed it thoroughly. He wants to go back and see it again.
 
2013-08-28 11:23:06 AM  
Man, you go out of your way to stick a token Chinese reference into your film, and they still don't like it.
