Train to Busan


Rating: TV-MA

Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Yeah, and he would probably like it.

Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Oh HECK NO.

Language: Some, although most of it was me screaming...

Sex/Romance: Really not that kind of movie. (It's a zombie movie.)

Violence/Gore: ...It's a zombie movie. Heck to the yes on both.

Music: I loved what they did with the music in this movie. It was really the icing on the cake. They knew when to pump the heart-pounding action music, and when they could use the lower-key sad music.

Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterwards? : I sat sniffling through the credits.

Was there a food pairing? : No. (It was only 4 o'clock.)

Thoughts: Well, first of all, I would like to know if the original language actually translated into "Ain't." 'Cause that seems pretty uniquely English. But my main thought is what a unique twist the creators took with the way they used the music! This was definitely a zombie flick, but they managed to make it so much more! With the help of the music, they made the movie about more than just the action and adrenaline, but also about the personal horror and tragedy contained within a zombie apocalypse. I really loved that they took the time to really show some of the effects of events close up, and didn't just stay detached and "big-picture" the whole time. But, as I said most of the language tonight came from me yelling at the tv or just exclaiming, so obviously the tension and adrenaline were great!

This was just a fantastic film that did a great job of making itself more than just an action zombie flick.

Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : Absolutely. I have been with my parents for a while and was more than ready for a good, intense movie night by myself!

In the End: 5 out of 5 stars. I definitely cried.
