Giant robot & monster movies are like basketball. It doesn't hurt to have a few white guys on the team, but there's a reason they're not the main guys.
Think long and hard about what you're saying. The reason Japanese movies tend to be (or are perceived by us as) better can be attributed to far fewer factors than the entire film crew, especially
when the limitation allows you to omit SFX. Writer, director, and maybe costumer. That's it. You throw too much money at anything, be it White, Black, Yellow, Green, and I'll bet it'll still be shit. It would be easy to point out exceptions to this assumption of mine, what with Casshern
and (I've heard) Godzilla: Final Wars
, but the fact is, when it comes to large productions (America-sized large, not Japan-sized. Casshern
= $10 mil.), any examples at all are
the exception. As they begin to catch up to our budgets (very slowly, and behind South Korea, it seems), for every Casshern
, you'l probably have another Appleseed
. Pobody's nerfect.
And even Casshern
was kind of... nnn. :? I use it because, quite frankly, I've never seen a really good Japanese live action robot movie. In fact, I've never seen a live-action robot movie. Don't listen to me.
And by your second statement, one could assess that Spike Lee should direct.
