Touched with Fire (Blu-ray Review)

I’m not really big on movies that focus on mental illness.  Most of them usually end up being cripplingly sad or fraught with turmoil throughout the entire film.  When I go to a movie I like to be lifted up in some way.  Another thing is that this film focuses on the lives of two […]

Oldboy – 2013 (Blu-ray Review)

Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy from 2003 is one of my favorite films of all time.  It came highly recommended to me by my good friend John Rocha.  He refused to tell me as much as possible about the plot and didn’t want to discuss anything aside from it being “terrific” until I saw it.  And when […]

Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’ Is About As Flavorless As Bad Dumplings (Movie Review)

It can be hard to try and critique a film, when it comes to addressing one that uses the basis of another film that one already loves.  It is hard to critique a film at any time really, as it requires a certain amount of consideration that really drags in all of what it going […]

Spike Lee’s OLDBOY Red-Band Trailer Debut

Here’s a film that I have been very curious about.  Spike Lee putting his own spin on the Oldboy story is certainly something I would not have suspected to come along initially (although more likely than the supposed idea of Will Smith and Steven Spielberg joining forces to provide their take).  As a huge fan […]
