Sorry, but you are absolutely, 100%, dead wrong - remember we are talking about NORTH AMERICAN MOVIES here, and the dearth of anything intelligent or comedic being released because they DO NOT PLAY Internationally,

*Opening coffee shop robbery
*OD / adrenaline shot
*Walken's watch story
*Pawn shop / gimp
*Shot Marvin in the face
*Book ended with the coffee shop
All strung together with incredible dialogue and performances.

He's really bent on blaming Asians for Hollywood not making films to his preference. Even though the top grossing films in North America are also filled with the same CGI action and simplistic dialogue.

I feel ya but best subtitles I ever saw was _Night Watch_ in theatres. It was so amazing years later I looked it up and apparently it's called open captions. Must have been a lot of work but they were fantasticJackWhyte wrote: ↑ No, it's the global marketplace, where the less dialogue the better, and the more mindless the CGI action, the more it plays in the sticks. People hate a screen filled with subtitles and dubbing is both expensive and time-consuming.
This is hardly news, and it's the main reason why we don't see big rom-coms, or comedies in general, very much, as they do NOT travel (too much dialogue and these usually have no action). Mindless superhero smash-fests fill the seats in population overload regions like Asia and India because the dialogue is mostly action tropes like "get them", "hurry up" and "let's go". And since there is no real character development and only a paper-thin plot, you can glean the entire movie with the voices off.

Agreed, and that was a true rarity - it made so much freaking money in Russia that they had carte blanche to do anything needed to sell it to NA audiences - those underwater blood-subs were awesome.

Your statement is the height of irony, as you don't seem to understand the linkage.
