    • Old Boy
    • Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter

  • The Good
      • More exposure encourages more cultural understanding and exploration
      • Diversity in films
  • The Bad
      • Original films will never see a daylight at the theatre. No theatre release due to remaking of films.
      • There still needs to be more faith in putting out the original product instead of keeping it on the shelf.
  • The Ugly
      • When films are remade, true essence of the original films will be lost.
