Oldboy (2013)

Oldboy is a remake of a South Korean cult classic. With minor differences and some adaptations to match up with American culture, this take on Oldboy is polished, clean, and a pretty easy watch. But does Spike Lee’s remake really capture the themes and tactics of the original? Is this a revenge film best served cold? Tune in to find out our take on this bloody mystery.

Oldboy (2003)

This week we also welcome long time guest and host of BTR’s Tech Trek back to the program to discuss the Influence that Asian cinema has had on American cinema over the years. Check out a great clip of Jackie Chan’s drunken boxing below, a favorite of DJ Falanga and DJ Dillon.
