I love Korean films and saw The Wailing without reading anything about it.
I couldn’t work out if it was a comedy or horror and in end it kinda spoiled it for me as I had no idea what to make of it.

Ive noticed that in multiple Korean movies, even the most dark and bleak ones have some sillyness to them. I enjoy it but can imagine it being off putting.

For me its what made the original Oldboy so good and the Spike Lee remake so bland, as it lacked that strangeness that made the Korean one so good.

La Haine 25th anniversary release - can't believe it's 25 years old and still feels fresh and relevant in 2020

Memories of Murder
From the same director as Parasite, similar to Zodiac by Fincher. And like Zodiac I found it decent but not as worthy of high praise as I find people giving them both online.

The Gentlemen
Bigger budget doesnt mean better movie sadly. It wasnt even that bad, its just so poor compared to lock stock and snatch. Even rocknrolla is miles better than this.

Thought Memories of Murder was excellent and really liked Zodiac too especially on the second watch.

Thought RocknRolla was dire though. An absolute turkey of a film.

Huge Grant single handedly made it for me.

I couldn't help think they tried to get Michael Caine and he said no. So they asked Hugh Grant to do a Michael Caine impression Laughing out loud

Same. The first Guy Ritchie film I've liked in a long, long time.

His next film is Aladin 2… Hell of a right turn career-wise

I mean he did direct Aladdin 1 last year so it's not the biggest surprise you'll see

On a Korean movie binge..

Burning
Completely different from what I expected watching the trailer but in a good way. Very slow burner (sorry) but was mesmerized by this one. One of my top films I've seen this year. Expect more of a sociological critique / psychological drama then the trailer suggests.

I saw the Devil
Holy shit was this movie violent. Probably enjoyed it way more than I should, had me hooked throughout the whole runtime. Excellent if you like revenge thrillers.

Snowpiercer
Pretty cool idea and set pieces, would have enjoyed it better if the tone didn't veer so much between comedy and dystopian stuff. Enjoyed that balance in Oldboy and the Wailing but didn't do much for me in this one.
