Hey Hollywood, would it kill you to just cast a fucking Japanese person as the hero in your movie set in Japan?
Anyway, having no Japanese protagonist is nothing compared to what I read about a possible "Akira" adaptation -- which probably won't have any Japanese characters at all.

This country, that I love, is so stupid people were crying about racial issues because Tarantino made a slave revenge flick. You know one where MULTIPLE white people get destroyed and this douche-bag:

Now, why would I bring this up?
Oh and back on topic of new action movies:
I'm not proud. I'm very intrigued in this fantasy movie called, coincidentally, 47 Ronin. I will pay good money to see it, sit on my butt for 2+ hours and be mightily entertained.
Then I'll go home and take a shower and hope it washes away the pop culture guilt.
And through it all, I will wonder why they didn't simply make a historical epic based on Chushingura.
