‘Oldboy’ DVD Review

5 April 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Sharlto Copley, Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Imperioli, Pom Klementieff, James Ransone | Written by Mark Protosevich | Directed by Spike Lee

Oldboy is a movie that has a huge question hanging over it.  It’s a shame really that the question has nothing to do with the plot, but rather the issue of just why was it needed? Are we too lazy to read subtitles or do we just feel the original movie could have been done better? The answer was probably that it was a way to just make more money.  You may find that answer cynical but after watching Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy you’ll realise it is true, but also have a strange feeling that it was actually a good movie.

Joe Doucett (Brolin) is an ass, a drunken ass at that.  When he finally annoys the wrong person he ends up »
