Hi all, Here're excerpts from the review of a movie titled "The Host." Bong Joon-ho’s previous features include a smart-aleck exercise in gratuitous nonsense called “Barking Dogs Never Bite” (they just comically kick the bucket). Closer to home the film reminds me less of the usual splatter entertainments that clutter American movie theaters and more of another recent horror film, the one in which a newly thawed alien with a giant brain delivers apocalyptic warnings to humanity about its imminent future. The phrases in bold type - could someone explain what they mean? For the whole review, visit here http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/09/movies/09host.html?bl&ex=1173675600&en=0c7229c762e2f75a&ei=5087 . Thanks in advance.
