The Host – Korean Monster Movie
I watched this movie on DVD after a recommendation from someone. I haven’t seen many Korean movies (OldBoy is the only other) but this is very accessible with great special effects. It had a large budget for a Korean movie with the modeling done by Weta and the CGI done by the Orphanage. The are awesome action set pieces along with comedy and family drama elements. Obviously there are elements of the film are ridiculous but those are just part of being a monster movie. I really enjoyed watching this film and look forward to watching more Asian films.
