...Last I checked India was squarely on the Asian continent but cut off from the rest by mountains.

Why does it matter?

Let's get back to the crappy movies.

It's lately been specifically extended to South Korea and is (SLOWLY) extending to what I described above.

Korean cars suck. And my Samsung TV broke.

Anyway, there must have been more weird foreign remakes. Like a musical version of Return of the Jedi, or something.

I know. Again, I was making fun at a certain very vocal sub-sect of Internet denizens.

Well, there was a manga of Return of the Jedi... Or at least Star Wars. That count?

AS FOR THE MOVIE...

Eh. I'm not impressed.

Really? Cool. I thought it would have been a musical like almost every Indian movie.

(thanks for getting back on track. That whole OMGINTERNETS tangent was totally pointless and probably ruined this thread. And it could have been a cool thread, too.)

Indeed. Also alot of anime fans are what I like to call "Japanophiles" in which anything and everything done in japan is "OMFG it's teh r0x, Am3rica is teh sux." Those folks need help. I like japan and all but they are far from being the cradle of anything and everything cool.

I saw this weird indian film, it was like the matrix in the lobby (shooting loads of stuff etc.) but they were singing and when it went into bullet time, the singing slowed down, it was kinda funny.

I must see this.

Somewhere I have a vhs copy of Empire Strikes Back dubbed in French, if that works for you.

Theres footage of their parliament degenerating into a fistfight though. Which I've ALWAYS said is a practice in government which needs to be encouraged.

I want to see more people getting beaten with gutter percha canes in the senate (or was that the house, I forget...in the 19th century someone basically caned an opponent is my point)

quote:
Might making right in the Senate would be terrible. The Senate is supposed to be the Old Boys Club, not some muscle-bound hot shot brawl


Oh I never said it should or would have any effect on legislation. I just find the mental image of flipping on C-Span only to find Orrin Hatch and Ted Kennedy engaged in a knife fight incredibly amusing somehow.

This is assuming its possible for me to find C-Span any more addictive and entertaining than I already do. Which is sort of doubtful.

The House though... eh, the House wouldn't be a loss.

It was sometime before the Civil War... an abolitionist was caned bya southern Democrat.
