Cautiously optimistic about Oldboy. Spike Lee movies are always interesting even if they are interesting failures.

As for Television you should add The newsroom premiering tonight because that show is pretty good. I didn't think it was that great, but a good show to watch.

What you definitely should add is the premiere of Orange Is The New Black, the Netflix original series which premiered this week to raving reviews. I'm on about episode 7 right now, it's awesome!

Could go either way. The tourist wasn't bad, but Rum Diaries tanked. I agree that the whole goth burton disney movie thing is overplayed to the point where it almost feels like a self parody.

Electro looks terrible, as did the Lizard in the first film. I was always hoping Oldboy would never be remade too, there's something else to avoid.
