10: Justin Young Loves The Host

We landed a doctor! Justin Young, filmmaker but also real-life Dr. Doctor, comes by to talk up The Host, which is not the 2013 Stephenie Meyer adaptation but the far-better 2006 South Korean feature by Bong Joon-ho. This movie hops between horror and family drama and creature feature and even manages some broad comedy and pointed criticism of the American military-industrial complex, yet despite all that going on, it still works. All this plus a story about childhood rooster shenanigans!
