dougfm: What I find shocking is that Spike Lee will direct a movie starring two white people.


Two white people getting the crap kicked out of them.

KatjaMouse: Lipspinach: I loved Oldboy & have watched it a couple of times, but I don't really
really remember it as being particularily farked up. Strange, sure. Maybe I have
a high threshold for weird.

You've seen this movie all the way through... right?


Oh yeah, Unwitting incest, hypnotic amnesia....
Although, I can totally see it getting royally ruined by an American remake, it doesn't surprise me that Hollywood loves it. It's got all the right themes; revenge, redemption & the big one at the end, Love Conquers All!
But anyway you slice it, if it gets made by Spike Lee, it will pale
in comparison to the original.

vrax: GoHomeAndGetYourShinebox: mamoru: Old Boy is over-rated. There, I said it.

I second that, except I would describe it as VERY overrated. It has its moments, but I think this is an example in which an American remake, done correctly, can be vastly better than the foreign original. I realize most here will disagree, but they can all suck one.

Your FACE is very overrated!


No, your TOWEL is overrated.

Alphax: I'm not at all familiar with Oldboy.. seen the name on occasion here on Fark, but that's it.


Friend who is into Japanese horror films said that a critic, while watching the film, threw up during a certain scene.

It's a film which your tolerance for ultraviolent farked-up films needs to be set very high. The equivalent of watching "Grave of the Firefiles" twice.

But, yeah, Spike Lee may tone it down.
