Check out the first poster for Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' remake
It's basically a still from the actual movie
There is no way an American movie can be made to compare to the original "Oldboy". Forget the violence and animal cruelty, the plot twist alone isn't made for American audiences. I expect this to be a watered-down version of a Korean classic.
There are hundreds of good screenplays waiting right here with new and interesting plots and twists by American writers. The script for that movie was probably worked and worked and worked until it was at the quality it was at the wrap of that endeavor.
Why can't studios work and work and work an American script? Why is Hollywood remaking a foreign movie when hundreds of American writers are having to jump through hoops just to get their stories read by studios? Why has "Robin Hood" been remade at least ten times?
The American movie industry sucks right now. It's last great original American idea was Pulp Fiction. And that was 18 years ago. A generation of movie goers have been subjected to the big ticket mindless dribble that's been coming out of tinsel town lately.
Like any other industry that doesn't go American-made it needs to be boycotted until it does. Don't get me wrong. I like movies from all over the world. But the American movie industry needs to support American talent. It's not doing that anymore.
I'm sure it will suck just like all the other movies that racist has made
