    I will say, one good thing about movie remakes is a lot of the time the remakes get the originals out on DVD.

    I remember when they did that remake of "Dawn of the Dead", the original had been out of print for years but when the remake hit the theaters the original hit the store shelves and that was great.


    Yeah that is a plus, haha I totally remember that one 2, I have the dvd of the original myself.

    I have them both plus a Japanse import of the remake I got by mistake on ebay (thanks to a dishonest seller).

    Gotta love George Takei's tweets about the new Akira movie:


    "WB's live action film AKIRA based on JAPANESE comic casting only WHITE leads. Hey, I ride a mean motorbike! #WhyNotJohnCho"


    "A blog re AKIRA live action film whitewashing–white lead actors, renaming Tetsuo to Travis?! http://ow.ly/4qw7i #ShameOnWB"


    "Live action of anime classic Akira will use white actors. In related news, remake of Roots to star Mel Gibson. #ShameOnWB"


    "When they made this parody they thought they were being satirical, not prophetic. http://ow.ly/1sjjPw #WhitewashedAkira"


    "Young Asian actors get few oppys in Hwood. WB could've helped change this w/ Akira but is casting only whites. #WhyItMatters"


    Summarized it in less than 150 characters. Though the apostrophe wasn't necessary. I can tell you, it's even worse for Indians. There was actually a "Comanche" from Norway in Hollywood in the 90s.

    Yeah and little people were angry they didn't get cast as Hobbits in "Lord of the Rings"... Look how that worked out?

    Well, it's a little worse than that. The new Akira is apparently about 9/11. LOL Also, Kay and Kaneda have sex (as opposed to not even getting to a relationship before the weird ending). And now Akira is a villain with a creepy children's song. Which one? "Frere Jacques". Yes, every moral decision, philosophical discussion, and "ethnic gesture" (to use Macek's term) is now the American trinity of fightin', **** and fervor.

    Ahaha, sounds like standard juvenile treatment that sort of stuff goes through when adapted to North American "vision".

    Basically. I just can't believe they chose "Frere Jacques" as the creepy children's song. Especially when there are many creepier ones.

    I don't know I've ALWAYS found that one pretty creepy.
