I first watched The Queen many years ago and liked it then. Since it's the 20th anniversary of the week of Princess Diana's death, I thought it's a good idea to revisit it again.
While looking through my many drafts, I found this post from almost two years ago. I never got around to polishing it, or by the time I did, it was already two months after the fact, which made me embarrassed to show how long I had procrastinated, so I just left it there. Though a bit outdated, I still have the same sentiments, so might as well let it see the light of day now.
Train to Busan happens to be one of the most apt movies for our present time. Even when I was watching it back in August, before Donald Trump's election, the parallels to Trump and the xenophobia that is running rampant in the world currently was striking, and prescient.
Just as Schindler's List is the first to come into mind when people think of films about the Holocaust, 12 Years a Slave will go down in cinematic history as that film for slavery.
