asian flicks

i heard that universal (i think... someone correct me, if i'm wrong) is going to do a remake of oldboy. imdb has some spoilers so if you haven't seen it and you don't wanna know what happens, don't read any of the posts.

the more i think about it, the more i like it... that was a kickass flick. makes me feel all patriotic about the motherland... and i rarely feel patriotic about korea. (my mother would cry if she read that.)

there were some amazing scenes in that movie... and quite a few disturbing ones...

i really hope universal doesn't fuck it up.

finally saw an ad for hero... miramax takes for fucking ever! this has got to be one of the more amazing movies i've ever seen. it's got everything: drama, sex, intrigue, conspiracy, beautifully choreographed fight scenes... and the colors are absolutely breathtaking. it's beautiful.

it's about damned time it came out.

I guarantee you that they WILL fuck up Oldboy. Oh, and be proud of Korea's film industry, they are putting out some seriously good films at the moment.
