I’m a huge fan of Chan-wook Park’s “Oldboy” from 2003, as well as the other 2 entries in his “vengeance trilogy”, but when I heard that Spike Lee was thinking about remaking the flick, I was pretty disappointed. If you’ve seen the original movie then you know how absolutely fucked up it is when the story finally starts to come to a close. The way things play out just make you think about how anyone in their right mind could ever come up with an idea like this. That being said, I really hope they don’t change the ending of the remake, but knowing American audiences, and what the movie studios do to foreign flicks when they bring them over here, I can’t imagine it will stay the same, but hopefully I’m wrong.

Josh Brolin stars in the remake which is set to hit theaters on October 25th.
