  • Prometheus

    Prometheus 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 12 Jun, 2012

    A little late with this one, but then again I always am.
    Such a lovely piece visually, working on an absolutely massive scale, creating a dark and at times mezmerising world.
    Yes it was pretty big, loud and stupid - but then again, I like big loud and stupid. Yes it has expendable characters ("I love rocks!") but not annoyingly so.

    The Pact 2012

    ★★ Watched 10 Jun, 2012

    You know how it's impossible to remember if you locked your frontdoor this one morning, because you've locked it a thousand times before, so you can't distinguish the mundane memories from one another?

  • Possessed

    Possessed 2009

    ★★★½ Watched 15 Apr, 2012

    So beautifully filmed, nicely acted, with some genuinely nightmarish imagery as well as pretty perfect dream sequences. It's strange, it's dark, it's tense and it's beautiful. Koreans should make more of this stuff.
