    Oldboy

    OMG...if anyone from this forum ever listened to me about something, this would be it. Go see this movie. It is incredible! Best movie of the year I've seen so far...easily as good as Million Dollar Baby.

    The movie is a revenge flick but with an awesome story. This guy is abducted and kept in a room for 15 years and not told why. He's given drugs and cable tv so he doesn't go crazy. While in the room he learns to fight. He finally manages to escape and vows to find the people who imprisoned him. So he has 5 days to find the people or else (won't give it away why of course).

    A few things to consider: it's in korean (subtitles, or if you want to ruin the movie a dubbed version), it's pretty graphic (for example a character eats a live octopus, among other things), and it deals with some taboo subjects.

    So, in conclusion, Oldboy is incredible. :thumbsup:

    So this isn't Bourne Identity?

    Revenge of the Sith is a revenge flick, that's gonna be a good one too.

    I read a review of this movie in a magazine and it does sound awesome. I just doubt Blockbuster is going to have it in stock.

    Yes, this is probably one of the best films ever, with some nasty scenes in it :D (your teeth will never feel the same again). I would definitely recommend watching it!

    How does he learn to fight? sounds like a silly action movie to me.

    It's a little strange but he picks it up from watching TV. He doesn't have much to do over 15 years so I guess he figures out.
