As always, a portion of absolutely anything you order from Amazon (Blu-rays, tires, power tools, computers – you name it) after clicking through our links goes to help support our work here at The Bits. So please use our links when you shop with them – we sure do appreciate it. [Read on here…]
First up today, our very own Todd Doogan has checked in with a review of Spike Lee’s recent Americanized remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 Korean action-thriller Oldboy, which was itself adapted from a Japanese manga from the late 1990s.
