New Oldboy Vs. Old Oldboy

So, it turns out that New York Knicks sympathizer and novelty eyeglass aficionado Spike Lee is actually an acclaimed director. Who would have thunk it? Perhaps even more surprising is the fact that he directed the remake of a famous South Korean film called Oldboy. It speaks volumes to Lee’s character that he could find time to direct a film of this magnitude between calling Quentin Tarantino a racist. Spike Lee is a true American hero and totally not obnoxious in any way.

The following list includes a series of criteria and points of comparison to better understand the differences between the two films. Also, SPOILERS AHEAD, so watch your ass if you haven’t seen either of these movies.

    I feel this article added some scoring topics just so Spike Lee’s version wouldn’t be blown out of the water. I’ve been dreading Spike Lee’s remake release, but I still need to watch it myself so I can hate in peace
