I’m likely speaking to the converted at this point but I typically can’t stand remakes, particularly those that don’t do anything different than the original.
Movies that do that aren’t worth the celluloid they’re filmed on.
I bring this up because recently I learned that there’s a Japanese version of Vincenzo Natali’s Cube, which I found interesting because I would love to see Natali’s work filtered through a Japanese perspective.
Though having seen the trailer I have a feeling that that’s not to be because as far as I can tell it’s no different than Natali’s 1997 movie, except with a Japanese cast.
What’s the point? If that’s the case why not just watch Vincenzo Natali’s movie instead?
Though what bothers me most of all is that this could really have been something interesting, instead of what appears to be a Xerox copy with a Japanese cast.
