    The Host and Snowpiercer are both exceptional films. So naturally I can't wait for this

    Love The Host & Snowpiercer, also love that he's working with Swinton again.

    This should be great.

    One cinema near me announced they're screening this as a double will with his other films. Got tickets to opening night with Skype q&a and Barking Dogs Never Bite (the only other of his films I haven't seen).

    Now this is what a summer blockbuster should be. It's an absolute joy. So much heart, great sense of humor, always thrilling. It's a shame that it was never meant to have that fate. I hope this doesn't get buried being a Netflix release. It's fantastic.

    Just finished, and very jealous of my friend who got to see it in a theater last week.

    Yeah, this was great. Seo-Hyun Ahn did a wonderful job selling her and Okja's bond and just did an all around wonderful job driving the movie. I know it's been 10 years, but the creature CGI has come a long way since The Host. Oh, and Jake Gyllenhaal's character was something.

    Is this better than Snowpiercer?

    Yes. But I like that film if that gives my answer any different weight.

    It's very Spielberg-ian.

    It's much different than Snowpiercer, but yeah, it's probably better. Think I still like The Host the most of the three films of his I've seen.

    Mother > The Host = Snowpiercer for me but I love all three a great deal. Gonna watch Okja this weekend and Memories of Murder on my next day off

    Memories of Murder is best by far! It's like a proto Zodiac.

    Mother is probably his best. I got my Korean directors mixed up, and when I looked I found out Lee Chang-dong has not had a film in seven years. That is depressing.
