    The movie bombed in the U.S,  It cost about 100 million to make and has only earned about 26 million so far with less than 10 million on opening weekend.  The Wachoski’s/directors will be depending on Korean nationalistic support to break even.

    I am super excited to see it. I could care less about how much money it made. From what I have been told, it is unlike anything ever put on screen. What’s that James Cameron said about showing them something that they have never seen before?

    That’s the spirit. And did we mention that Bae Doo-na looks good?

  • SalarymaninSeoul

    Since when did Bae Doo Na look good, Robert? I find her totally unattractive.

    Salarymanie Seoul is so correct…

    Let me tell you, she’s no Lee Jeong Hee.

    I liked the movie. It attempted to do a whole lot and probably could only do 85% of what it set out to do. But once you use your own imagination to fill in the gaps — like the way we do with books — it was tremendous.

    That’s 26 million in ticket sales, not profit, right?  And even if it were profit, do movies every make 74 million dollars profit in South Korea?

  • SomeguyinKorea

     All right.  I checked the trailer after reading your comment…Verdict? The trailer sucks bad.  Based on the trailer alone, I’d never bother.  But, the premise seems interesting enough that I will probably go see it.

    PS. Paraphrasing James Cameron?  He’s not exactly my favorite film
    director.  The best compliment I can give him as a film director is that he succeeds where Michael Bay consistently fails (which should be obvious to anyone who’s had to suffer through a Michael Bay film).  Lots of respect for how he supports scientific research, though.

     I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I blame Confucianism.

    Clearly.

  • SalarymaninSeoul

    Nah, I blame your rather weird taste. You’ve been pushing BDN here for a while. What’s the obsession?

  • SalarymaninSeoul

    Yes. she’s missing that “crazy-from-the-eye-poison-from-the-mouth” thing the Juche Princess has going.

    Bae Doona may not be conventionally pretty but her charm radiates on-screen and makes her beautiful. For those who have never seen one of her films I recommend “Linda, Linda, Linda” and “Airdoll” (both by Japanese directors).

    doesn’t this still not come out till like the 13th next month?

    Whoa! I never saw it. Let’s reserve judgment until we see it. I have sure not been impressed by them in recent years, but many people have told me that this is great. Also, I largely agree on your JC comments.

    Bae Doona is a natural beauty, without any kind of plastic surgery at all! To me, is is way prettier and more attractive than all those model-like fake beauties in the world, with fake boobs, nose surgery and botox. She is an incredible actress, wonderful person and a beautiful lady. Just because she isn’t drop dead gorgeous doesn’t mean she is unattractive! Gosh what a mean, rude and shallow comment. I wonder how good looking you are! Bae Doona is very pretty.

  • Koreandumbdumb

    Bae Doona no plastic surgery?  Are you interested in purchasing a bridge?

  • SalarymaninSeoul

    I am a better looking man than she is woman. That’s for sure, and I, unlike her, never got plastic surgery. Just how you know that she is a wonderful person is beyond me. I do know from personal experience that she is quite selfish, after having once, out of curiosity, been an extra in one of her movies: she did not share her sandwiches with anyine, she just stuffed her plastic face with them. I therefore dispute you on each point: she isnt pretty, she isnt natural, she isnt a nice person and she isnt a good actress.

    Shut up, you are embarrassing. Bae Doona is known for having a natural face with unique facial features, which a majority of other actresses in the world don’t have. She is a brilliant actress, but she also get all kinds of film roles, that those drop dead gorgeous women won’t get. She has a cute big nose and unique big eyes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/coud.atlas.3 Claudia Atlason

    Why would she share HER sandwhich with a bloated stuffed up, shallow salary man hired as an extra?!!! LOL. Get real. She is a brilliant actress and you are a bitter man complaining and spreading shit on her threads. lol.

    “Why would she share HER sandwich with a bloated, stuffed-up, shallow salary man hired as an extra?!!!”

    Out of the goodness of her heart?
