  8. I wonder how you folks came up with the revenge movie list--some of the titles I saw were films I wouldn't count as revenge-themed at all! It was an excellent list nonetheless, and I probably would take another look just to find titles to watch. :D

    Anyway, for favorite revenge films, I'd go with Oldboy, I Saw the Devil, The Yellow Sea, Lady Vengeance, and Dirty Carnival. Hard to pick titles cause there are more that I like!
