    Oldboy was sickening and baffling. I was shaken to my core. I had never seen anything that went as far as this film did. Chan-wook mind is so twisted.

    I doubt anything can topped that incredible opening sequence for this year. It was the perfect way to set the tone for the entirety of a film. I was so close to putting Athena as one of my favorites films for this year... until that final scene. Then, I felt angry, disappointed, and betrayed. All of its potential to be great was somehow flushed down into an abyss.

    If only this film had the balls to fully commit to its political stance, then this would have been an impactful and stronger film.

    Today I learned that Heath Ledger refused to present at Oscars due to homophobic jokes about this film.

    RESPECT.

    Sox is one of the best sidekicks out of all of the Disney/Pixar films. I want more of this robotic kitty.
