The best monster movie ever? I seriously doubt that making such a claim would be false. Why? I plan to tell you. First of all, Gwoemul propably had the best plot I have ever seen in a movie of this genre. It all starts off seeming like some cliched Godzilla-copy, but the moment we meet our so-called main character, Kan-Du, his occasional dialogue and overall attitude prepare us for something diffe... read more

"Have any of you heard it? The heartbreak of a parent who's lost a child... When a parent's heart breaks, the sound can travel for miles. So I really need to say this to you. Be as nice to Gang-du as you can. Don't scold him, okay?"

Koreans are often renowned for their motion pictures, as Korean filmmakers produce horror films and action-thrillers with more verve and creativity than... read more

The movie started off really good, with the first 1/3 or so being some of the best monster action I've seen. The effects are great through out the entire movie (fire is hard to do so I won't count the ending). My only big issue with this movie is how it gets really hard to tell how much time has passed. A lot of things point towards the movie being set during a couple of weeks (the military respon... read more

film diary 2013 (297 movies items)

" 23 August + Didn't expect a comedy, but it was very funny + Very unique, haven't seen a monster like that before + Great performance by Kang-ho Song + Some very thrilling scenes inside the sewer - The monster looked very unrealistic - A bit oversentimental, hard to understand for a western person - The movie felt too long"

"Netflix Horrorthon #19 This is a damn good film. The Host is a Korean film that takes a very interesting twist on the usual giant monster film. The film begins with an American doctor forcing his Korean assistant to pour hundreds of toxic chemicals down the drain going into the Han River (which actually did happen in real life). Years later, this resulted in a mutant catfish like monster rises out of the river for a major attack (which did not actually happen in real life). However, instead o"
