'Rampant' is watchable, but if you want to watch a better South Korean zombie film, I'd recommend 'The Odd Family: Zombie on Sale'. If you're more interested in South Korean hack-n-slash action films set during the Tang Dynasty, 'The Great Battle' is excellent.

It should be available on VOD / Blu / DVD elsewhere. Maybe try iTunes first?

I think it would be fun to see the two most capable survivors playing the role of pseudo-parents and mentors to Madison and Berkeley.

I have read the graphic novel at least a dozen times over the years and I never felt race was really a focus/factor in the story. This show starts with the race riots in Tulsa about 100 years ago and seems to be focus on the cops fighting a war against white supremacists.[/quote] Interesting observation. I agree with you, too. From what I understand after reading some interviews, Lindelof originally wrote the script for a show that he realised had a few similarities to "Watchmen" and then the rights were acquired some time later. So, this show really didn't begin life as a sequel to Alan Moore's "Watchmen". It's based on pre-existing script that was later work-shopped and retrofitted to tie-in to the comic.

[b]-------------------------------------------- You can read all of my latest film reviews here: [url]https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/about/Jake[/url][/b] The director is planning a huge supercut that will insert even more footage (hopefully giving Mike more screen time) and rearrange the two films to resemble the structure of the novel. While that won't fix the multitude of problems in these movies (too much CGI, lack of scares, over-emphasis on humour), I agree that it will eliminate some of the bloat from 'IT Chapter 2', namely the huge amount of flashbacks to the first film and the weird way that the adults remembered encounters they had with IT as children that weren't featured in 'IT Chapter 1'. A re-sequenced supercut would also make the character development of Richie seem more organic, rather than the character suddenly becoming more prominent when played by Bill Hader in 'IT Chapter 2'.

That’s a terrific bunker sci-fi film, too.

[b]-------------------------------------------- You can read all of my latest film reviews here: [url]https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/about/Jake[/url][/b] The child sections of the novel are stronger than the adult sections, so there were always going to be problems caused by corralling them into two separate films. I also don’t think ‘IT Chapter 2’ is as well-crafted as the first film. It’s a mess.
