Cauc-Asian Film Nerd Expresses Outrage Towards Spike Lee's Oldboy Trailer

Even though he knew it was inevitable, a Cauc-Asian film nerd hasn't stopped expressing his outrage towards the Spike Lee remake of the beloved Korean classic Oldboy. Originally based on a Japanese comic book, Oldboy is a good old fashioned tale of bloody revenge that premiered its first trailer recently across the web. The Cauc-Asian considers this to be nothing short of blasphemy. "First of all, it's based on a Manga not a comic book," said the angry Cauc-Asian. "Secondly, in Spike Lee's hands the story will just end up being more of a white devil conspiracy thriller rather than a revenge tale! Myself along with many other Cauc-Asian film nerds are firmly taking a stand against tarnishing the legacy of a true cinematic treasure!" We'll just have to see how it all plays out when Spike Lee's Oldboy hits theaters, but in the meantime, here is the controversial trailer in all its redband glory.
