This trailer just gave me a massive brain hemorrhage.
Let’s just take one of the most beautiful and emotional films I’ve ever seen, tear out all of the shock and feels, throw things together in a way that takes away all that makes it such a great film in order to censor it and make it more”acceptable”, and re-sell it to “lazy westerners that won’t read subtitles.”
This is why I hate remakes. This right here. I hate you, Hollywood.
I realize that remakes do have a place in our film industry, and that there have actually been quite a few good ones (1980’s version of The Thing, anyone?), but this right here just looks like a dumbed down version of a CLASSIC. If you don’t do anything different that re-tells the story in a new way or offers something new and creative, don’t waste my goddamn time. And please, for the love of god, stop dumbing down foreign films for us “overly sensitive” western movie goers. You’re taking something beautiful and timeless and ruining everything that made it such a classic. Films like Oldboy work because of how emotionally shocking and chilling they are. You take that away from it and all you’re left with is another revenge action film that’s pumped out a dime a dozen. Or really just…this. This is what you’re left with.
In recent years, biologists have recognized that birds engage in play. Juvenile Common Ravens are among the most playful of bird species. They have been observed to slide down snowbanks, apparently purely for fun. They even engage in games with other species, such as playing catch-me-if-you-can with wolves, otters and dogs. Common Ravens are known for spectacular aerobatic displays, such as flying in loops or interlocking talons with each other in flight.
They are also one of only a few wild animals who make their own toys. They have been observed breaking off twigs to play with socially.
