UPCOMING FILM -- Oldboy REMAKE

Friday, May 31, 2013Zena Horror


This isn't necessarily a horror movie buuuuut I had to talk about this! I think Spike Lee is a pretty cool director...at times but this is getting ridiculous! Yes, it's ridiculous because he hopped on the remake train but he's not remaking just any movie! To avoid spoilers, I'll just say, those who haven't seen this movie just know that it has such an insanely STRONG story line that it's hard to remake something like it. More importantly, why even try? Can't you just like the movie and watch it everyday without ruining it for everyone else?

It's also ridiculous because how is it "A Spike Lee joint"? Someone give me a valid reason on how it is because it's not. It's not his. Simple. He just decided to remake it.

Anyhow, it's going to hit the theaters on October 11th, 2013. 

SYNOPSIS: Oldboy tells the story of a man who is kidnapped and imprisoned on his daughter’s birthday. For fifteen years, he is held captive, and, upon his release, must begin his journey to find the reason for his imprisonment. He soon finds out that his kidnapper has plans for him more tortuous than his solitary confinement.

Has anyone seen the original and is anyone looking forward to seeing this?

  1. It isn't a Spike Lee Joint... but, I suppose it's his way of "branding" the remake...

    And the fact that it comes out on my birthday... makes me mad... Give me a GOOD movie!!!!

    1. Yeah, I get that part..but I don't he should even attempt to do it. But he;s going to do it anyway of course but don't put that "a Spike Lee joint" on it. :|

    2. Yea I hate Spike Lee...he is a lazy director. All his movies are the same and pretty much all about some political racial b.s.. And the funny thing is I am an African American! But when I go to the movies I go for a good time not afro-history class. I leave that to school. My biggest beef is him putting his name on it knowing damn well it wasn't his idea. He did it because he knows the fast majority of people in the U.S. have not seen the original . But any way... all us real fans know that's a Chan-wook Park joint. Give credit to where credit is due

  2. Oldboy is just an amazing movie. I can't understand why they feel the need to keep remaking perfect movies simply because a whole bunch of people can't be bothered to read. Grrrrrr!
