I was disappointed when I first saw the original Oldboy - it was probably a case of expectations being sky high .. Overall, it was least favorite of Park Chan wok's "Vengeance Trilogy"  ... I was blown away by Lady Vengeance though - much much better film than Oldboy IMHO

I'd give the 2003 Oldboy 2.5 outta five  ... It was petty standard fare

I guess I blocked out the fact that there was a remake .. Remakes and the all out theft of Asian cinema sort of turn my stomach, and the trailer doesn't do much to inspire me tp see it ..

On a related note, I just got the blu ray of "Bedevilled" in the mail and I will watch that tonight

Your stomach shouldn’t feel too bad as a lot of Hollywood and other western stuff are stolen out here too. Wouldn’t even know where to begin with all the stuff that’s stolen.

We rip off a lot of anime now, but I think it's payback for how much 80s anime ripped off from a single movie...Streets of Fire. :lol:

I am fully aware of what come out of every part of the world, film wise .... I never said that any one country has a monopoly or a perfect record making films ..

I would wager that I have seen more Japanese films of the past decade than you have, and you probably seen more Hollywood films than I ...

There is no balance in Hollywood ... For every rehashed, remake, reimagined, sequeled, prequeled waste of time Hollywood spits out, where is the balance ??

I like the original, but also feel that Lady Vengeance is miles ahead. And the remake was going well until it became a not-so-funny joke.

If you know that both hemispheres steal from each other then why bother with the lopsided complaint?

Hollywood has a lot more shit than goodness. What else is new?

As far as Oldboy is concerned, in my earlier post I gave it 1 star. And I think even that is generous.
I didn’t see the original and I only knew of its existence before watching the Hollywood Brolin version.

"Hemispheres" is the greatest album ever made on the Earth.
