    I recently saw Old Boy and I Saw the Devil in sucession.

    Old Boy was quite good. It was a bit silly and weird but never unrespectable. The cutting as well as the frames themselves were quite cool and somewhat innovative. Best of all the movie did not drown in its own weirdness, but it was a fun, fast-paced movie with some heart to it. 9/10

    I Saw the Devil was a different sort of film. It was very different from standard western films and definitely a nice change. But the plot was not great and neither were the characters. BUT! It was very fun, both due to the plot and action, but also the raw unrelenting violence.

    If you liked Old Boy then you should deferentially watch Sympathy of Mr. Vengeance and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance the other two films in the trilogy. I think Old Boy is the second film with Mr. Vengeance the first in the trilogy but I'm not sure.

    Son of No One--a mediocre police cover-up story.

    His undoubted masterpiece is 'Werkmeister Harmonies', in my humble opinion certainly one of the 10 Greatest movies ever made... Tarr's films are more like a semi-religious experience then 'taking in a movie' so be patient, and be warned!

    Recently saw The Amazing Spider-Man and really enjoyed it. I think it was quite a bit better than any of the Tobey McGuire films. Also last night watched Batman Begins again in preparation to see The Dark Knight Rises. I think Nolan's take on Batman has been very good and am looking forward to the new film. Even if Christian Bale is not a very good actor the production values more than make up for his inadequacies.

    Shattered--a pretty good psychological thriller starring Gerard Butler, Maria Bello and Pierce Brosnan

    Death Wish 3

    In 1985, Paul Kersey/Charles Bronson continues his quest of scum-riddance. Gavan O'Herlihy is cast well as villian Mandy Fraker ('Tell you what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna kill a little old lady, just for you') But what a name for a gang leader. LOL

    Great character actors Ed Lauter and Martin Balsam have nothing roles.

    Via Netflix, a 1968 black and white cinema verite film by the Maysle brothers about door to door Bible salesmen entitled Salesman. Very reminiscent of the style used by Frederick Wiseman, the film has no narrative background or music whatsoever.
    Whatever floats your boat
