    Hey Hollywood, would it kill you to just cast a fucking Japanese person as the hero in your movie set in Japan?

    Keanu Reeves does at least have Asian ancestry.

    Maybe they wanted to put some ethnic issues on the movie. Go figure...

    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.

    Ah yes, of the Reeves clan of Hokkaido, I believe.

    *Looks at location field* HAhahahahahahahahaha No!

    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:
    Led the charge.

    Now, why would I bring this up?

    Their family crest is a question mark.

    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.

    You may all continue your discussion.
