The Host!

Another brilliant gem from Bong Joon Ho after one of my fave Korean movies ever, Memories Of Murder...

I was not surprised at the quality of the movie, seeing that Song Kang Ho and Bae Doo Na's in it (both extremely fine actors) and couple it with Bong - it simply could not go wrong.

Contrary to what the trailers show, the monster (created by Weta) is not key to the story. Instead, here we have a human story with the characters placed in great adversity due to circumstances and Man's flaws.

So please... for goodness sake... if it's one Korean movie you watch a year, make this one THE ONE!
