wayback wednesday: The Host (no spoilers)

Saw Joon-Ho Bong's "The Host" this weekend with ghibli_geek. Admittedly I'm kind of an easy sell with Korean cinema, but I thought it was amazing. It's basically a giant monster movie, but spiced up with bits of comedy and political satire and all wrapped up in a deftly-handled and affecting human drama. It's probably the most realistic monster movie I've ever seen and certainly the most entertaining. If you're lucky enough to have this playing in your town, make you see it.
