Of course I know of the existence of both, and have been told before that I would like them, I just never got around to watching them. Honestly, back in the early 2000's I was so into J-horror that I actually burned myself out on it, which is why I just never got the itch to check these out. Fast forward to last night, I was surfing Netflix on the old PS3, and what do I come across in the "Foreign Films" section? Why, Oldboy and A Tale of Two Sisters, of course. Couldn't watch anything last night, as it was late and I had to be up early to pick up my bro at the airport at ass-thirty this morning. Tonight is a different story though!
First up, I think I'm going to tackle Oldboy. While I do enjoy me a good brutally violent revenge flick, this one has it's work cut out for it. See, I've already seen and own a copy of I Saw the Devil, and it's one hell of a brutally violent revenge flick. Still, I've had too many people tell me that I will love this, most of whom I can generally trust to steer me in the right direction movie-wise, so looking forward to finally checking this out.
A Tale of Two Sisters will probably finish my night off. Honestly I don't know a lot about it, other than it's a ghost story, and involves two sisters. Judging by the other films on Bloody Disgusting's list, I like the company this one keeps, so I'm hoping for greatness, even though I'm admittedly a little burned out on ghost flicks at the moment. Fingers crossed.
Big thanks to Tromeric for sharing the article! After these, I will be 100% on Bloody Disgusting's list, and all will be right with the world again. Until the next list comes out, of course.
