    I'd like to watch Juon and the sequels and US remakes, but I'm not sure what all is out there and I haven't yet found a site to spell it all out. There's Juon, then Juon 2 ... then something about "The Grudge". Is that the same as Juon 2, or is that strictly the US remake title?

    Okay, first off there is Ju-on: The Curse, followed by Ju-on: The Curse 2. Those are the first two films, and were made for TV. Then came Ju-on: The Grudge, a theatrical film, and the most popular entry, though I personally consider The Curse to be the best of them all. Following it was Ju-on: The Grudge 2. The American remake is a remake of Ju-on: The Grudge.

    Four Japanese films, and now the remake.

    Thanks ... so I take it the TV movies aren't available on DVD?

    The TV movies are on DVD, R2 from Japan, but with no English subs.

    Gee, let me guess,

    Nihongo-ga wakarimas-ka?

    Watashi-wa Nihongo-ga wakari-mas. Demo, mada, jozu-ja dimasen.

    And I never really know when not to use hyphens, so forgive the choppiness.

    Hai. Watashi wa nihongo o wakarimasu ga, jouzu dewanai.

    "Yes. I understand Japanese but I'm not very good [at it]."

    previously, "I have been studying Japanese for two years, but listening to Japanese is very difficult (trying to say 'listening comprehension')."

    The only time I've really used a hyphen is for something like "O-genki desu ka?" I'm not claiming to be an expert by any means, though.
