    "Castaway On the Moon is a romantic comedy film, not an adventure. Though there is some adventure within the film, according to its Wikipedia page, it should not be considered to be 'in for a penny, in for a pound." This isn't a good suggestion. It's worth a watch, but is shouldn't be a suggestion in this topic."

    "Train to Busan is a zombie movie where people are trapped on a train going through South Korea during a zombie outbreak. If you are into zombie movies then maybe this is your style. I am not a fan and I think the whole zombie thing has be overdone to the tenth power. There is absolutely zero chance I would say this fits the topic, but it is surely a mater of personal taste."

    "I love this movie. I bought it with English sub-titles rather than dubbed over in English because I would rather read the words than to have the lips moving out of sync. This is about a father whose daughter gets kidnapped by a mutated fish monster. The father and his brother and sister, along with the grandfather are doing everything in their power to find the little girl while trying to stay out of the hands of a biological unit that believes they have a virus. The movie is funny and dim-witted, but it can make one anxious at times and sad at other times but mostly great to be alive. I've watched it maybe five or six times now. And each time, it's just as good to me as it was the first time."

    "This movie is good, but it didn't feel like a Korean movie. I didn't even realize this was a Korean movie until now. It's good, but it doesn't satisfy my desire to see a Korean movie."

    "This movie looks like a knockoff of the classic Western "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" and it's lots of fun. The rental version has no subtitles, but the action is great to watch and the cinematography is simply gorgeous. I'd be a lot happier if I knew what the characters were saying to see how close it matched the Eastwood film."

    "I really had no desire to see this, my wife put it on, but I am glad I watched it. The real star of the movie is Okja, a computer generated creature. This is your typical "child with their pet" movie with some really interesting twists. An Seo Hyun is a wonderful discovery as Mija who will stop at nothing to save her best friend. Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal costar giving it star power. A truly heartwarming tale that I highly recommend."

    "This movie is a great show for kids in their teens due to the violence implied. I wouldn't recommend it for younger than 12 years old. I watched it at a sleep over when I was younger with some friends. Overall I have a good impression of it and it helped me have some fun with friends."

    "I didn't like this movie. The plot doesn't really appeal to me and it lacked the action necessary to keep me engaged. I love foreign movies as a general genre, but this isn't something I'd rewatch. The acting is fine and the quality of the movie (cinematography) is also alright. But as far as appealing to me like a movie should, it just doesn't."
