    I enjoyed it more this time around. The desperation and fear and desire of intense love are all there. The feeling of getting involved in something you’re totally unprepared for. And the certainty that you’re an adult even when you’re in over your head. But it doesn’t tap into the sort of emotion I need to connect with it.

    A really sad, sweet movie. By keeping the narrative firmly planted in Sarah’s point of view it never felt mean-spirited or exploitative. What happened to Sarah was presented as fact, capturing the very real experience.

    I didn’t realize that this is basically a perfect movie. Bong Joon-Ho does such a good job building the tension and developing these characters. Monster movies normally never care for their characters but this movie doesn’t fall into that trap.
