Anxiously awaiting next January

Because 01/18/08 can’t come soon enough…Tonight’s bachelor movie was straight out of Korea. It’s a mutant monster movie by the name of _The Host._It started off promising – with a really fun attack scene on the banks of the Han River in Seoul. Plenty of mayhem and crowd panic scenes. Obviously most of the budget was spent on that sequence because the remaining 1 hour and 40 minutes of the film didn’t do much for me. It tries to be a drama/horror/comedy but ends up failing almost all of those. Instead, it runs around with no set goal, except maybe to paint the U.S. as a bioterrorist. I can hardly wait for the U.S. remake. Thank goodness that’s not what J.J. Abrams is cooking up… I’m very much looking forward to that one.
