Andy’s Top 30:
Can we just double feature these movies and talk about them afterwards?

Brought this with me to watch at work tonight. It’s been too long. Starting it in 15 minutes. Come join me.
Oldboy by oldredjalopy
The movie is crazy and awesome.
One of my favorite films. Damn.
The only reason I don’t own OLDBOY on blu-ray is because I’ve got this guy right here. I don’t want to buy it again unless it has the same special features as this and/or new AWESOME features. Right now, there’s only one movie I am willing to buy on blu-ray and KEEP the DVD (until the original Star Wars trilogy comes out, that is)…
My favourite movie.
This scene makes my anus twitch.
I need three movie marathons in my immediate future:
- An Asian cinemathon (Oldboy, Audition, Battle Royale)
- Modern day crazy-ass throwbacks (Hobo With A Shotgun, Rubber, Human Centipede)
- Bad horror movies on Instant Watch
Unnecessary-Remake News of the Day: It’s official: Mandate Pictures released a statement today confirming that Spike Lee will indeed be directing the studio’s remake of Park Chan-wook’s critically acclaimed adaptation of Nobuaki Minegishi and Garon Tsuchiya’s manga series Old Boy.
“It’s a great honor to put this special project into the hands of such a gifted writer and iconic director,” “It’s a great honor to put this special project into the hands of such a gifted writer and iconic director,” Mandate President Nathan Kahane said in the statement.
A remake of the South Korean film has been in the works for a while, with various actors and directors — from Justin Lin to Steven Spielberg, and even Will Smith — attached at times.
I always experience two sets of feelings when foreign films I love are Americanized:
- Oh, cool. Now more people will get to see this story.
- Why don’t the lazy bastards just rent the amazing original? “I don’t wanna read my movies.” Whine whine whine. You’re missing out, you baby.
Still, I have REALLY liked The Departed (Infernal Affairs) and Let Me In (Let The Right One In). In a capable director’s hands with a good adaptation, this could be okay. Spike Lee is a capable director. I’ll hope for the best.
But yeah. Tumblrverse. Rent OLDBOY. It’s unbelievable.
