Revenge is a dish best served cold…
On March 4 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the Blu-ray and DVD editions of Spike Lee’s remake of Park Chan-Wook’s 2003 new classic, Oldboy, which I felt got a pretty bad rap. While the film isn’t nearly as shocking or impactful as the original (I blame the writers for making Brolin such an evil character), it’s stunning to look at, features incredible sets, and is insanely brutal. Frankly, I liked it.
Those of you familiar with the original will enjoy the following exclusive clip that teases the new shocking finale, which plays out quite differently than Chan-wook’s version.
In addition, we have (10) copies of the DVD for you to enter to win. Al you have to do is put OLDBOY in the subject line and send me your FULL NAME and address to email@example.com. Winners chosen at random. U.S. only and no POX boxes.
“Joe Doucette is a man who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement, for no apparent reason.
