Vin Diesel Wants Ang Lee to Direct KOJAK Because of Course He Does | Collider
So absurd it probably has to happen.
Josh Brolin Talks OLDBOY, Working with Paul Thomas Anderson on INHERENT VICE, and More | Collider
Reviews coming in for Oldboy not real good. Seeing a lot of unecessary/forgettable remarks. Another recurring theme is that Spike Lee wound up too hampered by wanting to hit the marks of the first one. So instead of being awesome scenes, it plays like a greatest hits package. Oh well...if it brings a few more folks to the original before it disappears into the bargain bins of pop culture...no harm no foul.
New Friday The 13th Movie Is A Total Reboot, Will Be Released In March 2015 - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Remember when Warner Bros gave up the rights to Friday the 13th in order to get a slice of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar with Paramount? Well, now Paramount is utilizing their new intellectual property and another Friday the 13th is on the way.
It will be released on March 13, 2015, and it will not be a sequel to the most recent reboot of the franchise in 2009. Well, that makes sense, since it’s switched ownership completely in the meantime.
[BD Review] Dickson Says 'Oldboy' Won't Shock "Us" -
“Spike Lee’s Oldboy is not as good as Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy. There’s no contest here,” Dickson says in his review. “It’s very unlikely that we’ll look back on it in 10 years as some kind of cult classic. But is Spike Lee’s Oldboy any good at all? Actually… yes.

Gonna have to see it...probably next weekend. Will let you know more then.It's not your job to walk into the remake of a beloved film without thinking of the original favorably, but I find it helps. And the thing that you have to remember is that it's not a contest; there doesn't have to be one that is better than the other. The winner doesn't get a trophy (usually). But one of the key things any remake must do is justify its existence by coming at the material from a new and interesting angle, and Spike Lee and his team without question pass that test, but it isn't the only criteria for it being a great movie or not. There are lapses of judgement and logic in this film that are often questionable and sometimes unforgivable. Samuel L. Jackson's portrayal of the "warden" of Joe's prison isn't nearly as interesting as he thinks it is. And the handling of the story's big reveal is dragged out for so long that it will likely ruin the surprise for those unfamiliar with the material.
Still, I liked what I saw. Nearly all of the performances are fantastic; the film's motif will keep your eyes happy for days; and the story elements are enhanced, reduced or left the same in just the right proportions to keep audiences clear on and entertained by the twisted plot points. As long as you don't have an aversion to exploding heads and hammer-based violence, you should find OLDBOY pretty damn interesting. Hell, there's even a chance you might like it quite a bit.
Saw Old Boy yesterday and thought it was mediocre at best. Had never seen the original so the absolute illogicalness of the setup/ending dropped it way off the scale for me.
That's disappointing to hear.
