We spend an hour talking Tezuka’s Phoenix, Sega’s Yakuza series, and too-horny-for-TheHeat-mecha-show Godannar, among other things, before breaking into our review of director Yoon Jong-bing’s Nameless Gangster: Rules of the Game (2012), which chronicles the rise and fall of two South Korean gangsters (Choi Min-Sik and Ha Jung-woo) during the 80’s and 90’s.

Review (31:31):

Today, we review The Host (2006), a critical and commercial hit in South Korea and abroad. It comes from director and screenwriter Bong Joon-ho and centers around a family’s quest to retrieve their lost child from the clutches of a giant mutant fish-monster, while battling a dysfunctional and oppressive bureaucracy, and slowly growing into better versions of themselves.
