    Gods and Monsters

    ★★★★★

    I'm not sure where to start with Gods and Monsters.
    Is it a drama? Comedy? Horror? Queer Cinema? Biography? History lesson? Fantasy? Psychological thriller?
    Who knows. The only I am certain of is that this is definitely Brendan Fraser's best film. And probably Ian McKellen's, too (I jest)

    Train to Busan

    ★★★★½

    SO. MANY. EMOTIONS!!!

    It's an emotional rollercoaster, that's for sure. A slow start quickly gives way to an adrenaline packed, emotionally wrenching horror movie. Although to be more accurate, this ain't no ordinary horror movie; it's an action movie, a disaster movie & a family drama all in one.

    Zombies on a train is such a cool idea (Horror Express already proved this) - I mean, where do you escape to?…
