Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Kevin James!

This is Movie Jail, a unique maximum security prison that houses some of the worst writers, directors, actors and producers from Hollywood and beyond. Their crimes? The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had...

Is Spike Lee planning a sequel to He Got Game?

It's been sixteen years since the release of Spike Lee 's HE GOT GAME. A lot of time has passed that one would figure if they wanted to make a sequel they would have already done it. Lee has never directed a sequel to one of his films, and I don't think that this would be the first. The film did receive plenty of acclaim especially for Ray Allen who left the court to play the...

C'mon, Hollywood: Why exactly did Oldboy bomb?

Remakes are always controversial no matter who's attached to the project, the number of years it's been since the original was released, how good the first one was, etc. With directors ranging from Justin Lin to Steven Spielberg , the OLDBOY remake eventually became Spike Lee's responsibility and after playing a very long waiting game, the film has finally come and hit theaters with...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Oldboy actress Elizabeth Olsen!

Elizabeth Olsen tackles a fairly tricky role in OLDBOY. Like the bulk of the film, it's best left shrouded in mystery, but she's asked to hit a wide range of emotions, which she does effortlessly. No surprise considering how impressive the actress has been in the short time we've all been familiar with her: MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, SILENT HOUSE, KILL YOUR DARLINGS have all given the...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Oldboy star Michael Imperioli

A man who has just been released from 20 years of captivity is going to need friends, and that's where Michael Imperioli comes in in Spike Lee 's OLDBOY. As Chucky, Imperioli is visited by his old pal Joe Doucett ( Josh Brolin ) who, two decades prior, disappeared mysteriously. Looking at the situation through Chucky's eyes allows us to ask: What would I do if my friend, quite clearly...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Oldboy screenwriter Mark Protosevich!

Mark Protosevich 's resume is a rather solid one: He counts THE CELL, POSEIDON, I AM LEGEND and THOR among the films he's worked on - big budget, extremely visual pictures that were met with varying degrees of audience approval. His latest work is easily the most provocative: a "re-imagening" of OLDBOY. Though based on the manga by Garon Tsuchiya and Nobuaki Minegishi, the title is more...

Review: Oldboy

PLOT : When an inconspicuous advertising executive is suddenly imprisoned he finds that his entire world is being torn apart. After his unexpected release twenty years later, he is given the opportunity to find the man responsible and discover the reason for his captivity. REVIEW : OLDBOY is a first for director Spike Lee. Unlike his previous pictures, this remake of Park...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Oldboy director Spike Lee!

This was one of my most anticipated interviews ever. Spike Lee . The man who directed DO THE RIGHT THING, MALCOLM X, JUNGLE FEVER, CLOCKERS (a personal favorite), HE GOT GAME, SUMMER OF SAM, INSIDE JOB - to name a few - sitting in the same room with me? Too cool. Lee is one of the most unique American filmmakers of our time, a consistently interesting storyteller willing to take risks...

The Good, The Bad and the Badass: Spike Lee

Last week, we took a look at the career of master director Michael Mann , a guy whose style helped define the modern urban action film. This week, we look at another prolific filmmaker who's had his share of controversy but whose talent cannot be denied... Spike Lee A couple of months ago, while preparing a Good/Bad/Badass column on Denzel Washington...

Spike Lee's Olboy with Josh Brolin, Sharlto Copley, and Elizabeth Olsen gets a green band trailer

A new green band trailer has dropped for Spike Lee 's OLDBOY, which is nearly the exact same trailer as the red band one, minus the blood, boobs, and booty shots. So, yeah, it's the watered-down-whiskey version. That doesn't mean the film looks any less interesting, but for my money the aforementioned attributes help to sell it a hell of a lot better. Starring Josh Brolin...

Josh Brolin meets his captor in this new clip from Spike Lee's Oldboy

By this time you should be pretty familiar with Park Chan-wook's original OLDBOY or the upcoming Spike Lee remake but, if you aren't, you should turn away now as a new clip has appeared online that reveals a key moment in the plot of the revenge movie. While the clip is edited in such a way as to remain ambiguous, I would recommend if you want to keep the story fresh to skip ahead of...
