The all time best has got to be GET CARTER. What you got?



b/w

Anybody seen the blaxploitation remake that came out in the states a year later? It's supposed to be pretty good and apparently Pam Grier gets eaten by a tiger in it.

    doesn't he kill Jeff Goldblum early on in the film?

    also:

    Straw Dogs
    Revenge of the Nerds

    The DVD shows up on ebay, Gemm and Amazon now and then, but it's pricey. If you still have your VHS player, those are floating around for more reasonable amounts.

    not sure, my take is that his vigilantism is a direct result of his need for making things right for his familys murder, although indirect per se its still revenge on any deserving punk and thats how he justifys his actions.

    the other two were inferior but still interesting.

    if you enjoyed those you might want to check "i saw the devil" and "the chaser", both south korean flicks dealing with revenge as well. good stuff but not on the same level as oldboy.

    Of the David and Goliath comedy "revenge" movies in the "Bad News Bears", "Animal House" and "Revenge Of The Nerds" mold, but aside from those and their sequels, "UHF" is good stupid fun which I have seen many times. Of the rip-offs of "Death Wish", "Big Heat" and such, my favorite is "Big Guns"/"Tony Arzenta" with honorable mentions to the intentionally funny "Human Factor", "Extreme Vengeance" and "Syndicate Sadists". Also, I am seeing this next weekend...

    Get Carter is probably the best but the first movie I thought of was this:


  • Shawshank!

    And hopefully the rest of The Hunger Games trilogy.
