    Watched Train to Busan the other night. Korean Zombie movie. Fantastic film, probably the best Zombie movie I’ve seen.

    Going to watch I Saw The Devil this week, heard some great things about it.

    Realised that after the fact, somehow accidentally posted my list before I'd finished it. I thought Aguirre was a bit mad but it is an amazing looking film about a man going mad in a really remote location. Shame Klaus Kinski was a total scum bag.
