Also curious as to the source of the movies--I've seen a few Japanese films sourced from Hong Kong knockoffs that did have significant sound and/or video problems. But the problem was in the theft process not the original film.

My brain is too fried to figure out who else is on this line of thought.

maybe Japanese not good with the effects on the movies but they are very good with drawing the characters for the anime! and also the best storyline!

do this and you'll stop complaining about production values. non-US/Hollywood movies have like 1/100th the production budget. US/Hollywood movies are all about spending lot's of money for *wow* flashy effects so they can milk the US population of idiots and make some money. the movie can suck but as long as it looks good, they make money. foreign films with much less production budget have to make a film that is worth watching even if it doesn't look good. and all in all, they make better movies than Hollywood. no contest.
this is why i am a Animation Otaku. i love that some 2d drawings can tell an amazing story, or with "suspension of disbelief" can create special effects that take millions of dollars to pull of in the *omg it must look totally real* realm. i would rather have a 1 million dollar animated production that tells a good story than a 20 million dollar movie that spends 19 million dollars on lighting and CGI graphics to make it look *real*.
seriously, watch a bunch of low budget 3rd world movies from around the world that are more *epic* than any Hollywood movie of the past ten years. you'll stop complaining about lighting and sound and other such nonsense. US/Hollywood blockbuster movies are produced to gain the most money from the lowest common denominator.... if you are comparing films to Hollywood productions because they don't meet your standards... congratulations! you are the lowest common denominator... you're a dumb american hick hooked on eye/ear candy.

Clearly if you think that Japanese movies aren't that great you haven't seen "Battle Royale" or "Ichi the killer", both of which are quite entertaining. Also who could forget the ever classic blind samurai "Zatoichi". I guess not much can be expected from movie buff posers.[color=blue][b][/b][/color]
while your point is valid, having your first post be a flame isn't exactly socially obliging now is it?
