The first one had a better story, although Rambo is not known for the great story line, but the second one had a lot more action and EXPLOSIONS. Both kick ass movies for sure.

Legion
I didn't expect much out of this movie except maybe some fun action and/or eye candy. Nevertheless I still came away disappointed. A reasonably interesting beginning was completely squandered and frankly I found it kind of boring.

Absolutely brilliant, everything a thriller/mystery should be.

Glad you liked it! Our conversation about it last night inspired me to put the whole trilogy on my Netflix queue.

I liked it more than I first thought I did if I'm honest, I really liked it. Particularly liked the ending as well.

It's definitely a favourite, such great direction and such a great story about seeking vengeance.
Spoiler for Oldboy:
I particularly loved how you think it's the protagonist seeking revenge, throughout the entire movie... but infact, it isn't. I also loved the ending, the foot steps. What do you think that means? Do you think it means 'the monster' walked away? Or do you think it was simply a mistake by the hypnotist, and he will figure out everything. I loved the ending.

Right now, though:



Oh, it's bad. But like Death to Smoochy or Toys, it's not just bad, it's weirdly, ridiculously bad very much in its own way and I kind of like it for that.

Plus, the cast is awesome. Pam Grier and Joe Don Baker in the same place? Hah!

Bad? Gah. This movie was ridiculously awesome. I love the Tom Jones cameo.... I don't think there's a better choice for a random cameo than the guy who did What's New Pussycat.

have you seen the other films in the trilogy?....all are very good in their own special ways....but Oldboy sticks out like a sore thumb in it's greatness

my thoughts on the end
Spoiler for oldboy...thoughts:
time had obviously passed.....both characters had grey hair and showed signs of age.....he loves her and knows this is his daughter...but cannot break himself away from a relationship with her and yet cannot tell her what they have done.....while in trance he is told that the monster walks away...and in 70 steps dies peacefully....when he wakes he is probably around 70 paces from the chair he was in....i think the most important part about the trance scene and from what i can tell a very overlooked part is the tape recorder....it ends (this is the best part and most gratifying part of Woo-jin's revenge....the tape recording of them have sex).....

so i think he knows nothing of her other than a lover....but

i think the weirdest part of the ending is that there are no tracks left by the hypnotist.....

i think in many ways this entire movie is more about redemption than it is about revenge



still one of the greatest movies i've seen in years



i watched this last night...not great but enjoyable

This used to be one of my favorite books when I was a youngster. Finally got around to seeing the movie. It was just okay I wasn't really that impressed and I don't see why everyone went nuts over it.
