Lists by GhumontoPothik

a list of 48 titles

This is a list of Hollywood (& Western) movies that were either remade or inspired from Asian Cinema (mostly Japan & Korea).

I am not trying to rebuke Hollywood in any way. My thought is that since Hollywood has chosen these films to remake then they ought to be worthy of watching. So, my intention is just to make a list so that I don't miss out the originals from my own screening.

The movies come in pairs:-
- Odd numbered ones are the Originals.
- Even numbered ones are the Remakes of the ones they follow.

If you are aware of any other pairs that are not listed here please try to give names/links of both the original and the remake.

ThnX.

P.S. I just thought this is funny! I mean this poster! :-D

a list of 200 titles

Here is a list of movies that I plan to see in the near future.

I have seen a lot of (well known) movies from the West (hollywood, etc) but recently my interest has shifted to the East. So most of these are Asian (Korean, Japanese, Iranian, etc).

The list is sorted by the following Criteria & Order:-
- Origin: Korea, Japan, Other East Asian, Iran, Other Asians, Hollywood & Others.
- Movie Poster: Haves, Have Nots.
- IMDB Rating: High...Low.

All of these films are selected due to either their high IMDb ratings or Awards or Recommendations from others.

In the description box, the following information are given:-
- Country: ... of origin. Language is assumed by default (if not mentioned otherwise).
- Recommendations: ... based on mention of titles in lists by IMDb users (approx).
- Awards: ... won & nominated.
- Remarks: ... by me, for me.

And, I'll try to limit the total @ 200 Titles (max):
Currently...
-     1 to  60 => Korea
-   61 to 130 => Japan
- 131 to 160 => China, Hong Kong, Thailand, South-East, etc.
- 161 to 180 => Iran, Turkey, Mid-East, etc.
- 181 to 200 => Hollywood & Others.

Don't hesitate to recommend me Asian movies (except South Asian) that are not listed here OR in my other "already watched" lists.

ThnX!
