Default Did anyone notice OLDBOY coming out tomorrow?

What do you guys think about this movie?

I have heard nothing but good things about the movie, and I just noticed it's coming out on Blu-Ray tomorrow. I really wanted to see it and think this could be a good chance, even though it's a week late for my horror movie fix for Halloween.

I think the movie is alright. I think its a bit overrated though. I wouldn't worry about your horror movie fix as Oldboy isn't a horror film.

Oldboy is one of my favourite movies and imo is one of the movies that does live up to the hype. Popcorntreect is right though. it's not a horror movie (despite it containing scenes that may be disturbing or contain psychological horror )

Oldboy is a korean movie about revenge, although not really in the same category as kill bill, man on fire, etc. You can read metacritic or imdb for the basic setup. Be wary of spoilers however.

Anyways I'll gush a bit. I just think it's an awesome movie. it tells its story well, all the characters are layered, pacing is never a problem, there are tons of memorable scenes, plenty of dark humor, and stylistically, the film is a stunner. I would say with the use of colors and compositions it looks like a mix of David Fincher(Fight Club) and Jean Pierre Jeunet(Amelie). I think it's even stronger than 300 in how each shot is framed.

So yea, I'm looking forward to the blu-ray release of course. I do remember the dvd version looking a bit washed out. Waiting for my local retailer to get it in.

I am so excited to see OLDBOY on Blu-ray!

Saw it in the theater when it was finally released here (2 years after it was released in Korea) and it instantly became one of my favorite movies of all time.

OLDBOY is the revenge flick to end all revenge flicks. You'll never see the ending coming.

The octopus scene is the best!

Anyone see that show on NBC "Chuck"? He's got an OLDBOY poster on his wall!
