The great thing about Memories Of Murder is that it would be almost impossible to remake, since the time and place the movie is set in plays such a huge part of the story.
The only other film I can think off which does something simillar is Spike Lees Summer Of Sam, whch is as much about New York in that period of time as anything else.
By conicidence, Spike Lee has had many clashes with Quentin Tarantino, criticising Tarantino for choosing to portray aspects of black cultural life.The funny thing is that Spike Lee chooses to focus on Italian Americans in Summer of Sam, and does a great job of it too.

Just bought AND saw it today, I thought it was a good movie. Not as good as some people say, though defiantly still good. My little brother loved it though.

I also bought Kill Bill Volume 1 and 2.

I like the use of that word in that sentence for some reason. I don't know if it was meant to be 'definitely' or not, but I like 'defiantly.' :)

I just watched that movie for the first time. JESUS CHRIST! Definitely one of the best films ever made. Way ahead of its time.

I'd say it's more of a movie you'd have expected to see in the sixties. Saying that it was 'ahead of its time' implies that movies get progressivley better. But latley I've been watching some old movies like the Alfred Hitchcock classics, Twelve Angry Men, etc., and compared to todays movies, I'd say they are better. I go more for storyline than anything else in a movie, and those are the kind of moveis where you have to think a little bit about everything. Whereas today, I feel like everything is fluff, there's no digging any deeper for the subtleties and nuances and all that.

I'm talking about most movies, by the way. Not all of them. Some of my favorite recent movies have been Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, and Dawn of the Dead (especially the new one).

Dawn of the Dead is (I had the word 'probably' written write here, but then I realized that was a mistake and took it out) the greatest movie ever made. Not only did it have zombies, but all the characters were developed amazingly, especially CJ the mall guard guy. And when that guy shoots the propane tanks...oh my god...

LOL... I've never encountered someone who likes DotD more than Fight Club. At least not the remake!

While I will agree that the movie did pull off the non-linear concept very well, and had two funny scenes, the rest was shock-value used for lack of talent or creativity The unending fanboy praise for this movie has spawn many copy-cat attempts, most going for even more 'shock-and-yawn' rather than trying to develop anything of substance. A teaspoon of wine in a barrel of sewage is still a barrel of sewage.

Whilst I prefer Reservoir Dogs because I am more of a talking heads kinda guy, this movie is very well made. It's all in the detail. Watching the film over gives you new insights each time. I suspect most of the people who don't like it were either turned off by the violence or weren't paying enough attention.
