Review of The Host (2006)

Monster/Sci-fi movies aren't really my thing but this hits me right in the sweet spot. First you have possibly my favourite actor of the decade Song Kang-Ho, you have the thrills of a giant tadpole on legs movie mixed in with a dysfunctional family drama, add in government conspiracy and you have another film that shouldn't work but Bong Joon-ho pulls it off with bells on. At times uplifting, at times tragic and comical. It's that perfect mix of light and dark that South Korea gets so well. PLUS it makes Cloverfield look like amateur hour in comparison
