These next reviews I'm leaving out the imdb link because I'm lazy...
I really liked Train to Busan so when I heard a "sequel" was coming out, I had to watch it. Watched it last night and imo while it's not as good as the last movie, it's good enough. If you like zombie movies, this one's for you. If you like some Mad Max style car chases through zombie infested city streets, this one's for you. Also really like the characters in the movie. I'd give this movie a 7.5/10 (tho I'm kinda bias cause I generally love zombie movies). If you don't like zombie movies...maybe a 5.5/10? Slightly above "eh"?
Blurb: A soldier and his team battle hordes of post-apocalyptic zombies in the wastelands of the Korean Peninsula.
I decided to watch Nomadland because it won an Oscar for best picture. The first hour or so of the movie was some REALLY boring shit that nearly put me to sleep. The movie is described as a character study which it most certainly is. There's not really a main story so much as it's a look into the life of someone who lives out of their van, is constantly traveling (living the nomad lifestyle), and some random slice of life events (work, Thanksgiving, New Years, someone's death, etc.). I will say however by the end of the movie I was like "okay I can see why this was nominated for best picture". Does it deserve best picture? Idk cause I haven't watched all the nominations. As someone who's watched numerous documentaries about communes/people who live outside of what we see as normal society, this movie didn't really open my eyes to the lifestyle. However, the movie does push you to think about the life we all choose to live. Overall, I'd give the movie a 7.5-8/10. Pretty good, but it's no Parasite (2019's Best Picture) which I think is hands down the best movie I have EVER seen.
Blurb: A woman in her sixties who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad.
