Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at a South Korean zombie film that is taking the world by storm on Netflix. It should be no surprise that a South Korean horror film is doing so well: that country has a surprisingly strong movie industry with Bong Joon Ho (Parasite, The Host) and movies like “Train To Busan” and its sequel finding massive worldwide audiences.

Thankfully “#Alive” is here to throw a welcome jolt into the field of zombie films.Continue reading
Howdy folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at Disney’s live action remake of the 1998 animated film “Mulan.” The original film is a musical about the coming of age of a woman who disguises herself as a boy to fight in the Chinese army in place of her ailing father.

Enjoy and feel free to comment below. So Sayeth The Kendog!

Movies like “Interstellar,” “Inception,” and of course, The Dark Knight trilogy ensure that whenever Nolan releases as film it serves as a worldwide event. Now, with movie theaters struggling in an attempt to reopen, a Christopher Nolan film carries more importance than ever. The question that needs to be answered now is: Is “Tenet” worth the hullaballoo?Continue reading
