Because these are the crappy doldrum months for Hollywood, it's always a delight to see a movie come out that's as good or better than most summer blockbusters. Case in point:
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of seeing The Host, a terrific Korean monster movie that's funny, scary, and altogether fresh--easily the best creature-on-the-loose yarn since Tremors...and perhaps since Alien. Hilarious characters, great settings, nail-biting suspense, horrific violence, and an awesome monster--this movie did it all for me. The only weakness was that the climax was a bit clunky and contrived...but by no means did this ruin the film. In fact, I can't wait to see it again.
