    I still cannot believe they did not like it, but I showed my friends Oldboy a while back and because of the controversial topics (would state but it might be considered a spoiler), I was temporarily banned from bringing over any more films! They have finally lightened up and I have been forcing them to watch more foreign cinema..., but still... I never expected them to over-react so much, especially considering they are hardly conservative in nature.

    Has anyone else ever had a similer response?

    Your friends have obviously no taste. Old Boy is one of the best films in recent times.

    My own fau pas was "Bad Boy Bubby"

    Not a film for the faint hearted.

    Thats strange, i mean Oldboy is extremely well done, good story, good cinematography, great acting, great music, great everything really. It's not like its some low budget grimey gorey horror flick is it. And its all tastefully done. Bring over Ichi the killer (for the tongue scene for example) or visitor q (for the scene in the greenhouse), irreversible (for the fire extinguisher scene), and they'll ostracize you for life!

    Never happened me though there's some films i would never show certain people lol.
