I didn't know what Oldboy even was when I saw it. I'd heard the name mentioned, but never paid attention to anything anyone said about it. And I still thought it was overrated.
I figured, maybe it was just some lost in translation type shit. Not the movie with Scarlet Jo and Bill Murray. I mean, some shit was just lost in the act of translating the movie to human from whatever it was originally created in, on some distant planet where that shit might have made sense. And like BAMJoe said, something must have gotten lost in translation if this is a Will Smith, Steven Spielberg project, or even a Spike Lee joint.
I mean, it's like if Pixar decided to remake Human Centipede.
