        I think the cover art is awesome! Very Dr. Strangelove-esque.

          There are two in circulation. One is crowned "the tame version," which, to me, doesn't give you any idea as to what you are about to get into, given the situation that you have the movie because of the happy-go-lucky seeming cover art.


          "not tame"

          I dunno, the first looks to me like silly outer-space fun.
          There is no such thing as DEATH; it's just a trrransformation.

          My old place in toronto had a bidet...I liked using it, cleaned the shit outta there + it felt good. Ever masturbate with a stream of water on your asshole? Feels great, try it sometime.

            I was never a fan of Korean Films for some reason, I've liked only a few and I haven't seen much.

            Shiri was aiight

            And then there was this fuc'er


            Also this one, which had it's funny moments as well as emo-stylin' which is a Korean trend to me, super EMO


            There's probably some cool ones out there, just gotta research. That monster movie and I did like A tale of two sisters

              I'll have to give some Korean Cinema a chance, I'll start with these and move slowly, don't be fooled by trailers, they often if not always end up totally...EMO!

                    The Good, the Bad, The Weird
                    Bloody Reunion
                    I'm a Cyborg, But That's Okay
                    D-War (if you can really consider that Korean...)

                    I've also seen a few rom-coms I can't seem to name individually. In my opinion, you've seen one, you've seen them all.

                    I'm also dying to watch the Vengence series. Song Kang-ho is one of my favorite actors EVER!

                      It's been a while since I've followed Foreign Cinema but from what I recall...

                      I Saw the Devil
                      Fighter in the Wind
                      The Man from Nowhere
                      Tae Guk Gi

                      Korean cinema seems to have slowed down a lot lately, maybe all the talent has moved to Hollywood and been ruined.

                        While I have seen a fair number of Korean classics like The Revenge Trilogy, ISTD, and ATOTS, I think the most enjoyable Korean movie I've ever seen is this:

                        The very definition of romantic comedy. It's very funny and sweet all at the same time. 10/10.

                        She isn't a scream queen for nothing, right?

                          I never particularly liked Oldboy. I think I Saw The Devil is a masterpiece though and The Guardpost and The Host are also good films. A Tale of Two sisters is also good but I was hoping for it to be a lot better.

                            I think that Korea is up their with France for making the most stand-out horror films. So far I've seen:

                            I Saw The Devil
                            The Chaser
                            Sympathy For Lady Vengence
                            The Host

                            All of them have been fantastic, I think I Saw The Devil is the best though (followed closely by Oldboy)

                            I really want to see:
                            The Man From Nowhere
                            Dream Home

                            and probably a few others which I've forgotten about. GO KOREA!

                                Gotta add Mother to my list. Another great film from Bong Joon-ho. The man's work is pure class. I haven't seen a dud from him yet.
