both (Ringu & Infernal Affairs were pretty successful globally.
you gave nothing. just pulling something out of thin air isn't proof.
oldboy wasn't a box office success in the US either.
c'mon man. those are IMDB user reviews. that's about as credible from a crititics point of view as asking the next homeless guy you meet on the street.
8% are spike lee fans that defend this as if their life would depend on it.
lol. oooh, now netflix is important out of a sudden. what's next? streamasia.com?
yeah, people usually trust some unknown bozo without an own platform more than a professional.
so, you read all thousands of user-reviews of this film?
a film is not an iphone app. i buy iphone apps to work with them, therefore all i need to know is the developer. if it comes from apple, korg, tascam, filemaker ... etc, then i don't need no rankings. apart from that, most "fart" apps get 100000+ 4 star votes, which renders your statement double redundant.
super bad. rotten tomatoes. top critics: 7.3/10
do you want fries with that?
apart from that, dumb and dumber is way more polariszing than superbad, but how would YOU know? xD
"This is one of the few movies I have seen where the IMDB rating has actually progressively gone up."
yeah, with thousands of movies getting released every year, i am sure that case is unbelievably uncommon. ;)
If it was a shot for shot remake and simply higher quality, I could understand that assumption. If someone puts more effort into the same thing, it can be more enjoyable than the original (although that seems to be rare.)
Fanboy : a person who does not think while watching.
Brolin played his part good, but the second most important person in the movie "the bad guy/stranger" was just so horribly flat compared to the original.
His suffering was just so small compared to the the original, it is just not possible to compare.
The remake was also to easy to understand, you watch it once and just forget it, but with the original is like a good book. You have to watch it 2 or more times just to grasp everything it gives you.
