The following typical threads that plague martial arts sites will get moved here if not just deleted: 1 - My style is better than Your style" - 2 - "Internal & External" - 3 - Personal attacks - 4 - Threads that start well, but degenerate into a spiral of nonsense.

Ya mean there couldn't be Asians on Krypton? You wouldn't want to see that :)


Superman in my opinion is like Greek mythology, you are not suppose to have Asian Kratos running around Greece,
God of War will not be pleased.

Movie production is a large budget investment
this is especially so if you have lots of special effects and CGI
GITS was made to the tune of 110 million.

From the movie exec point of view, it is completely logical to
cast someone popular and bankable (to get finance) for the lead.
Cast an Asian and be true to the original?
Sorry mate, i do not have the luxury of such sentiments.

True to the original plot?
Audience are not gonna go to the box office to see a plot they
already know right? come guys, let's be logical?
So let's change it up a bit; add this and that; so we got something
to tell and sell.

You gotta know what you see comes from.

but they dun understand, with GITS you cannot do things half-ways
and take as little risk as i can.
There is no half-ways about this story, plot, character, setting, costume,
etc.

they should have listened to the fans, the numbers speak for themselves.

if you took 110 million and kept it in the bank for 3 years at a rate of 5%,
you get something like 21 million


Of all 110 million spent, they can't even get the two Asian nipple right!
Or even SJ nipple right~
My friend, a hardcore GITS fan was literally crying when he finished the movie,
upsetting~ his girlfriend was trying so hard to calm him down.

Well, yeah, all heroes are like Greek mythology. But, why should there be Asians on Tatooine? Star Wars is mythological too. Remember there was a time when the only Asians on space ships were in Japanese movies and on Star Trek :) Imo, your argument has more validity when it comes to history, but afa fictional characters, I don't really care. Kids don't either.

Sorry to hear that your friend took it so hard.
