Just be glad the rumoured American-made Dog Soliders 2 never got made. The leaked plot alone...there would have been ugly scenes. UGLY SCENES.

I say leave British film to the British. It's like if they tried to remake the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly here in the states It would suck.

I read once that the main difference between British and American films is the fate of the main characters. In British films we don't care if the characters die; it's how they face down their death that makes the film great. In American films the characters have to win. They have to be the heroes and survive.

Dog Soldiers is a good example of this. We the viewer know that nobody is likely to make it out alive; the characters know this as well. But what do they do? They (literaly) put the kettle on and decide to go down fighting. Even though
Spoiler:
only one character lives
, it's how all of them never backed down and faced death head on (after calling him a pussy) that makes the film so utterly awesome.

In the proposed sequel, (spoiler) is found by the American soldiers who were casually mentioned in the first film. And what happens? They go in guns blazing and save the day. Whoop-de-fucking-do.

Maybe it's a cultural thing. Brits don't see losing as a bad thing as long as you played well, Americans don't like to lose because they feel invalidated. Hmm, wonder how similar this is to films from other nations?

It makes me very glad they never made a US version of Blackadder Goes Forth...

I think it's the US mindset of "We can't lose, we never lose" We've never lost a war, and only once have we used military force and not gotten our way, so there's this unspoken superiority over other countries. I find the best part of this is that while older people think this, and younger kids are being corrupted by video games glorifying us, the middle generation hates it. I've had more than my fair share of discussions with friends about wanting to study abroad for college, because we realize how much every other country hates us, even though so many people are oblivious to it.

... I don't care what anyone says, I preffered the Tom Hanks version of LadyKillers, to Peter Sellers.

Yes, I know Sellers is better, but not in that movie.

I don't believe this. My friend, Austin (different Austin, Surge, not the party one), has a foreign exchange student over from France, and speaks English pretty well. Funny thing is he says that it's easier for him to communicate in than French. Anyway, last Saturday, a few friends and I were at the mall when we ran into Austin and the French kid, and later we were talking and asking him what he thought of America and why he wanted to come. He said that he loved it here and that America is seen as a place where foreigners WANT to go to and live, especially California. According to him, America is still seen as a place to go if you want to live a better life. We even said that we thought the world hated us, and he replied saying that they (France, at least) don't hate America, they just really hated Bush.


Edit: San Francisco was fuckin awesome, bee tee dubs. Probably walked like 15 miles between going from Pier 17 (where we parked), to 39, back to 17, through china town to Market st, around the mall there, back to pier 17, 39 again for dinner, and 17 again to finally go home. Shit was so cash.
