So, we all saw the horrible murders over in Virginia Tech recently, and the witchhunt starts again. This time out it's our First ever Film Of The Week - Oldboy. Yes, Oldboy was the favourite movie of the killer, and as it is a movie about a Korean bloke out for vengeance, it was all too simple for the press to jump on the bandwagon. Am i the only one who thinks this is ludicrous. Oldboy may be a violent movie, but i cannot draw any connections with the reality of the killings. How many times do americans have to blame movies before they start to look at themselves & their own laws?
Its so easy to blame Oldboy, the matrix, etc.... for atrocities. But can movies really be blamed?
