Bc1970, thanks I wasn't aware a second T&J setw as out. Must get now.
I even went as far and got the complete ASIAN release hoping theyd be uncut :( But unfortunately they look like they were recorded off of American TV with a crappy VHS tape that was used by a housewife to record her general hospital for about 15 years. And unfortunately they are NOT uncut either.

I like to go to the $2 bin at Wal-Mart for some good ol' Kung Fu movies. The other day I bought "One Man Army", "Kung Fu Zombie", and "Shaolin Vs. Ninja". The only one that really panned out was Kung Fu Zombie. Man Tat Ng stars in it. You might remember him as Golden Leg from Shaolin Soccer.

HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Can't believe this comment eluded me! IPAMPILASH, dude!

Long-haired one: You've only just bought Oldboy? I've just got my Korean copy of Lady Vengeance, man! Catch up! Obviously, I'm not gonna watch it till after I've seen it in a cinema in two weeks' time. Sorry to blow my own horn, but I'm chuffed it arrived so quickly.

Before that, I think the last thing I bought was Tremors for 3 quid from HMV. Oh, and a Ghost In The Shell DVD to finally replace my VHS copy.

I will be constantly jealous of those who watch the Mr. and Lady Vengeance films until I've seen them myself. I've no seen Oldboy either. :(

Oldboy is slightly overrated (Meanwhile I saw it). It's a good film and definitely worth watching, but the 2nd half is a little bit boring (but the ending is just great!)

I though Mr. Vengeance was the superior film. I like them slow burn revenge flicks that escalate without you knowing it.

I just found it badly written, I found that the characters were all stereotypical cardboard cutouts that don't exist in the real world, I could have bought this is if was just a simple Rocky tale with a member of the fairer sex but then it turns into something else and I just didn't care, I know some people like it so you should judge for yourself.

The same guy (Paul Haggis) wrote Crash (the new one, not the Scar Porn one) and I know about a dozen people who thought that to be the best film in a few years, I haven't seen it yet because of the bad taste Million Dollar Baby left in my mouth , however the popularity of both with some folks leaves me to believe it just depends on if you are the type that responds to his style, maybe I'm too cynical?

Completely agree, Mr Vengeance is much better just not as stylishly shot.

Oldboy thinks it's a bit more clever than it actually is for me.

JSA might be better than either but it's a different type of film.

This is a toughie for me. I saw Sympathy after first reading about it in Harry's top 10 list a couple of years ago. Liked it a lot, but it didn't particularly blow me away - I just thought it was a very good film. Oldboy, on the other hand, was a movie which I could not stop thinking about for weeks and weeks after I first saw it. A friend of mine, the guy who managed to get hold of a copy of the movie (the same guy who procured S4MV) was equally obsessed with it, so I guess we kind of spurred each other on.

When I rewatch S4MV now, I probably give it more respect than I did at first - but thematically, I still don't find it as inspiring as Oldboy. In dramatic terms, there's just something very, very intriguing for me about the concept of being locked up for 15 years and not knowing why. It has an almost fairy tale-like quality to it. Min-Sik's whispered, philosophical narration, coupled with the superb score, and Ji-tae's hypnotic baddie, take it a couple of levels above Sympathy, in my opinion. All Park's films are damn good though, and I'm frankly just glad that the man exists at all.....

Fuck Yeah! Apart from the running joke of Woods giving up smokes (I'm trying to quit) it featured an early Michael Mann fave...Stephen Lang as the Party Crasher.

I caught him about half a year later in "Band of the Hand" as a grizzled vietnam vet teaching ghetto kids how to survive and protect their turf. Classic 80's movie and classic Mann during his Miami years....soft, slightly out of focus palette (pastels only). Funky modern, minimalist apartments...Mr Mister playing Broken Wings.

Man...thanks for bringing that memory back..good times!

LOST Season ONE, Pt II.

Looking forward to the documentaries on it.

Just bought Wyatt Earp - the Costner movie. Sure, its no Tombstone..but it doesn't try to be either. Its quite faithful to the true life events I seem to remember..so less entertaining in the popcorn sense...but if you are interested in this man's lfe - which was pretty amazing - then I suspect it deserved a better reception than it got upon release...certainly in the UK, where the critics were waiting to take Costner down after Dances.

If only they'd waited for WaterWorld eh? I'm looking forward to revisiting it. And laughing all over again at Madsen's very limited screen time. This is the film role he turned Vincent in Pulp Fiction down for. I believe he started drinking in earnest the following year....

my copy of "stunt rock" just arrived via the mail yesterday. i was super pumped, untill i watched the fucker. one of the worst atrocities ever committed to a film, when they transferred it to dvd. they cut the fucking opening credits out. it goes from the fbi warning, straight to the movie. then, right when the opening titles are about to start, they cut to the fucking MENU?!?!?!?! then, when you select "play movie" it cuts to just after the credits. i was fuming! they butchered the movie, and my memories. bastards. criterion, where are you when i need you? actually, the concept of this movie being released as part of the criterion collection is utterly laughable. but, then again, they did do the rock, and armageddon.
