  1. Frank's rating of the film Pulgasari

    Surprised how much i like this film. Not in the same ballpark with regards to most Japanese monster flicks but it has one hell of a back story. highly recommend reading A Kim Jong-Il Production: The Extraordinary True Story of a Kidnapped Filmmaker, His Star Actress, and a Young Dictator's Rise to Power by paul fischer. great book about the making of this.

  2. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film Pulgasari

    Uncle Kim's simplistic views of capitalism make loud echoes in this kaiju movie with a confusing agenda. The farmers are the people, and the king has them starving to them. Pulgasari is capitalism gone wild, eating all the metal he can find. So, maybe the real message from Uncle Kim was that the remedy to the nort korean commie hell would be even worse. The toho talent bring the best moments in the film.

  3. Xob's rating of the film Pulgasari

    Best movie from best Korea.

  4. Kizeky's rating of the film Pulgasari

    The only good thing about this movie is the backhistory behind it. Other than that this movie is just bland and boring.

  5. sewslow's rating of the film Pulgasari

    Ironically, there is so much kidnapping that goes on in this film.

    Dude! Downloaded a few days ago, feedback soon.

  7. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Pulgasari

    How ironic that this movie depicts the overthrow of an absolute monarchy/military dictatorship by freedom loving peoples. Totally what happened in North Korea, right? But, honestly, this is pretty boring and mind numbing, and only worth watching for the sake of seeing it. North Korea may be best Korea, but their cinema is not best cinema.

  8. Chuck Williamson's rating of the film Pulgasari

    Best experienced as a series of animated .gifs.

  9. Glim Ho's rating of the film Pulgasari


  10. OwainCai's rating of the film Pulgasari

    An interesting yet insane back story to this piece of propaganda, it must have been horrific for Shin Sang-Ok and his wife.

  11. Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film Pulgasari

    Supposedly Kim Il-song helped out with some of the choreography and cinematography of the folk dancing scenes.
