I started to watch it for the 4th time yesterday and this really is one of my favorite movies, it's soo good.

I don't want a american remake, but if they are going to make it. They have to make it good

I :heart: BATTLE ROYLAE!! I haven't seen the movies but I've read the book (translated into English^^) and it was the most deliciously sick, twisted thing I have ever read! I absolutely LOVED it! LOL My favourite character is Kazuo, without a doubt... I was really hoping he'd make it to the end!

Anyway, I heard about the possible American remake, too, and I don't think they should do it, just because it won't come across the same way XD I would love to see the original Japanese movies, though... Anyone know where I can get a copy? :heart:

Also, I know Kou Shibasaki is in it... I :heart: her, too!!

^ I got mine from SoulSeek. You could probably look it up on there xD

And the people who bought the rights to Battle Royale and are going to remake it, are fans of the series too-- not just some bigwigs who want to capitalize upon the franchise. I remember reading an article somewhere about them not wanting to mess it up, being fans themselves. So I have faith.

When they start auditioning for kids though, I'll be first in line xD

Hollywood is at a lack of ideas for new movies, so they're re-making movies like crazy. Lazy asses.... >___>

I neither support nor reject that they'll be re-making Battle Royale, I'd like to see how it turns out first before giving an opinion. I have a small amount of faith, because some of their re-makes (like "The Grudge") turned out surprisingly well for me.

^ Yeah, I honestly really liked the American remake of "Ring".

I don't know how they are going to replace Mitsuko, but I'll wait and see what happens.

Honestly? I think they should pick Jessica Alba, because she's apparently bitchy in real life. It's perfect! :lol:

Yeah, I just thought Shibasaki was the perfect Mitsuko.  I can't wait to see how Mitsuko vs. Hirono and the lighthouse scene turn out.

Those scenes were love :D

If you like the movie, I think you should then read the book. I think the novel was much better than the move. I did read the book before watching the movie, maybe that's why.

I didn't really get the plot when I first watched it, but I kept watching it a bit more and finally figured out they were slaughtering each other to stay alive, like a game =_="

I like both, the novel and the movie, to different degrees. The novel because it fills in a lot of 'gray areas', and because of it's detail. However, I also love the movie because first of all, you get visual aid :lol: And it's just great to watch! Trying to imagine all the killings going on in your head can only go so far, haha.

the Variety article about New Line getting the rights left out a few tidbits of info. yes, New Line is in negotiations to get the remake rights and as far as i know have yet to actually get them signed by Toei. ever since BR hit the screens there have been several parties interested in distribution or remake rights for North America and all fell out of favor because of Toei's very strict guidelines for release or remake. but, after checking all my sources it's still an "in the works" deal so i'm not too concerned right now.

as for the movies themselves, the first BR was amazing. i was fortunate enough to catch in on the big screen in japan and was hooked. i think the thing that really hit me most was that no matter how little screen time a student may have had, their death affects you. part of it is the shock of their gory demise but also that they're simply paying the price of the game and in some cases it was terribly depressing.

i was suprised by a couple of things with BR as well that put a smile on my face just out of nostalgia. such as Masamichi Amano composing the music, who I got hooked on when he did the Giant Robo soundtrack. the other was cutey idol Yuko Miyamura as the BR idol! yay!

i could go on a serious rant about BR but i'll save you all the time. i can't say as much for BR2, but i did find it entertaining and the camo pattern was damn cool thanks to BA-TSU. yay!

Battle Royale daaaaisuki <3

It's ne of the greatest movies ever~ I can't name any bad sides about it. ^^ My favorite characters are Kawada, Kiriyama and Mitsuko. (Oh I love Kou Shibasaki!) Even though BR is a very violent movie, I'm not bothered. xDD It's still a pleasure to your eyes... (OMG now I sound like a freak) I like it.
