Oh boy, Hollywood to remake Old Boy

November 5, 2009


First of all if you haven’t seen Oldboy yet do it now. Seriously, you can read this later after you’ve watched the film. It’s a great movie. It’s the second installment in Park Chan-Wook’s revenge trilogy including the movies Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance & Lady Vengeance. Oldboy is by far one of the most twisted films I’ve ever seen period. It is a Korean film and completely pulls you into the story. This movie blew my mind when I first saw it years ago and now it pains me to learn it’s being remade. Yes once again Hollywood has found another great foreign film and decided well lets do it in English instead of releasing it in America. Oldboy is an incredibly dark film and guess who’s supposed to be it’s new star… Will “Hell Naw” Smith. Now don’t get me wrong I like the man, he’s a good actor but lets just say there are somethings the will need to be taken out of the film in order for him to keep his stature in Hollywood.

Take a look at the trailer, and if you’re on Netflix you can stream the movie.
Treat yourselves people before Will Smith and Steven Spielberg release their take on it.
