It's really hard to have any sympathy for directors like Lee – content to get paid to work on a remake of Old Boy (estimated budget on IMDb of $30,000,000) and certainly a film that the studios involved will see as a potential 'Home run', given the built in fan base for the original, and the fact that a lot of people simply wont have watched it because it'd require them to read subtitles for two hours.

Some of these people (Braff included) should take a leaf out of Alan Moore's book – so unhappy with Hollywood that he now refuses to take payment from adaptations based on all comic work that he does not own. That's a statement. Making a few throwaway comments on Kickstarter isn't.

I'd consider donating toward projects set up by the likes of Shane Carruth, someone actually creating interesting work outside the studio system.
