Post seeing Parasite, it seems like a great time to catch up on Bong Joon-ho's filmography, starting here with Snowpiercer, a movie i'd known about for a while and just hadn't gotten around to seeing.
I really enjoyed this, especially during the second half of the film. Chris Evans is solid in the lead, but the supporting cast is really, really great. Song Kang-ho, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt and Tilda Swinton are all fantastic, with Swinton's comedic chops getting some great moments to shine.
The set pieces for the train carriages were wonderful, the visuals throughout were very good. The story was great, though the twists I already knew from that snowpiercer is the sequel to willy wonka video, which I also could not stop thinking about throughout the film
