The name is Broadway Avenue. Broadway is home to independent clothing stores, coffee shops, and restaurants, multiple bars, two schools, and much more hipster goodness. The Broadway Theatre dates back to 1946, and it’s there where we ended up going for date night. To the theatre, that is, not back in time.

This particular night we went and saw the remake of Oldboy. Although the theatre put on a special screening of both the original and the remake, we only caught the newer version. Both Geoff and I thought that it was a shocking, gory, and well-acted film, and was very different than what we were expecting. That being said, if you were going by movie ratings alone, it may not be one that avid Rotten Tomato followers will be willing to see. This 2013 version currently sits at 43% on RT, while the version from 2003 is at 80%. Inevitably, it’s probably another Hollywood remake that probably shouldn’t have been remade in the first place. I think that there should be a general rule in Hollywood that any film above 70% on RT cannot be redone. That way, the classics will always remain just that. Except for Oldboy, that is. Reviews aside, I highly recommend seeing it!
