Host

Blimey, I saw an amazing movie last night on DVD - The Host. Japanese monster movie. Whatever you're doing, drop it and go see this movie now!!!

Erm... South Korean, surely? (Believe me: not a mistake you want to make... :-)) Assuming we're talking about the same film.

I tend to go through binge/purge cycles with films-on-DVD too. Last one came to an abrupt end a couple of months back with the g*d-awful "The Black Dahlia". I haven't had the heart to try any more recent releases since...

Sorry, Mart, didn't like it. Actually, I hated it. Couldn't decide on the tone, whether it was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek or seriously scary. Good sfx though.

And much better than The Black Dahlia. Or just about any film with Josh Hartnett in!

oh yes, korean, sorry!
i thought it just about got away with the tone. that reminds me of shaun of the dead - a big comedy film and then he shoots his mother in the head! wtf?

Switches in tone are quite common in Asian cinema. For whatever reason, the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans don't think it's a problem to go from tragedy to comedy to action to whatever in the blink of an eye.
