Hello there Bill,

This is very late of me but here is the class list for LTCS1002. I have two
others in my room that I will bring up. I would be good if you could let me
know before 4 whether there are any outstanding.

There are less students than I thought, some didn't continue. They came and
ran away.

Talk to you soon,

Subject: Thank You All

Thanks to everyone for many kinds of helpful suggestions, insights, and
assistance. What I'm trying to do is compare the following sets of films:

Shall We Dance (Original Japanese Version), written and directed by Suo
Shall We Dance (US Remake), starring Richard Gere, Jennifer Lopez, Susan
(--with a focus on comparisons of climactic dance scenes in each version)

Ju-On (Original Japanese Version), written and directed by Shimizu Takashi 
The Grudge (US Remake), created by Shimizu Takashi and Sam Raimi, starring
Sarah Michelle Gellar
(--with a focus on the way Sam Raimi worked with Shimizu Takashi to recreate
the original "haunted closet" segment)

Kill Bill, Vols. 1 and 2, created by Quentin Tarantino (focus on vol. 1)
Shurayuki Hime (Lady Snowblood), starring Kaji Meiko
Chushingura, directed by Inagaki Hiroshi
(--with a focus on the snow garden scenes in Kill Bill Vol. 1 and in these
two older Japanese action films)

It's for a student audience, so I thought these examples might suit their
tastes and interests. With your help, I'll now also be able to provide some
comparative reverse examples on Monday, when they ask me about them.

Thanks Again,

Michael McCaskey
