Title: Oldboy
Post by: fuu on January 31, 2010, 06:22:43 AM
Gore, caustic humour, idiosyncratic cast, realistic depictions of tragedy and vengeance, a great soundtrack and one hell of a curveball at the end, I could go on and on and on.

How many of you have seen it? It's ****in' brilliant.

I've never seen it, but I've been meaning to. I know that gaguri have raved about it before.

You haven't read a revenge story until you've read Monte Cristo.

You haven't watched a revenge film until you've watched Old Boy.

You know, I just thought the first act of the film was superb. It's cool. You get kidnapped and trapped in a room for 15 years. You shadow box out of frustration. You have only a television broadcasting the news as company. You get sleeping-gas'ed and hypnotized in your spare time. Kind of awesome.

If you see a blatantly obvious spambot like this one revive a long dead thread, don't respond to it. Just report it.
