Train to Busan

I’ve grown pretty tired of the zombie trope — both in film and games — and so it took me quite a while to find the desire to watch this, even though I had heard (and been told) it was really good. I finally decided to watch it last week, and must say it’s a fantastic film. Using the train as a cramped environment to deal with works incredibly well, and the film as a whole is just really well done, with great character moments — and that includes the incredible hate I felt for that CEO guy. I know there are a lot of good Korean movies I still haven’t gotten around to watching, and this put me in a mood to do this sooner than later.
