Vengeance and That Temperature-Challenged Dish Thing

December 4th, 2006 (12:53 am)

So tonight I watched Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (the fade to B&W version,even). What a fantastic movie - I'll try to carve out some time for a review, but I gotta say it's a great example of what people mean when they say some really good stuff has been coming out of South Korea lately. Park Chan-wook is definitely someone to track down. And this is only one movie in the Vengeance Trilogy. Man.

In other news, I got Sister and B-in-Law Wakasa a fancy-dancy multiregion DVD player for Xmas today. (In fact, it's a better machine than mine.) Mainly because I want to send them movies without worrying about whether they can actually play them. Unfortunately Oppo Digital doesn't believe in gifts, so next week sometime they'll receive a box that says "DVD Player" all over it. Well, I actually checked whether or not they wanted another DVD player, then asked about their video setup, so this isn't exactly a surprise. Now they're going to pretend they don't know what's in the box until Xmas. And then they'll be able to see Awesome Things on their new widescreen tv.
