Browsing through IMBD i came across Spike lees new film oldboy. He will be remaking Chan-wook Parks 2003 masterpiece OLDBOY. A film what in my eyes is one of the greatest films ever made. I realise that Hollywood has obviously run out of ideas and feels the need to constantly remake ideas until all energy has been sucked out of them but why remake such greats that have only been made in our decade?

watch the trailer below.

Remaking this film is like remaking Shawshank Redemption or Disney remaking spirited away. I very rarely see world cinema remaking Hollywood films, the reason is because the rest of the work is still producing original ideas.
