For most of us, Stephanie Meyer is the devil incarnate. She took what was a perfectly good supernatural baddie and turned him in to a bedazzled, love-sick vegetarian for heavens sake! But, as with all evil geniuses, this one blasphemy was not enough. She has now turned her sights towards the time-honored tradition of alien invasion, turning it from an integral battle for human survival to just another run-of-the-mill, lame love triangle. Really, is nothing held as sacred anymore?!
The déjà vu is strong with this one.
London’s seventh annual Korean Film Festival is in full swing! Running until November 11th, it’s a rare showcase of popular Korean filmmaking, offering an insight into a culture as in love with pop music, fashion and Hollywood as our own. Bringing over the cream of a remarkably strong national cinema, the KFF continues to expose audiences to a fascinating dichotomy of the alien and familiar, as all the tried and true tropes of genre cinema are played out in a foreign language.
Sparkly aliens this time!
OH JUST GIVE UP
