Squire and I got to do one of the things that I was itching to do while in Thailand. Watch a movie at the local cineplex. We even watched a Thai movie, that was thematic to one of the things that I hold near and dear to my heart, ZOMBIES!
It’s safe to say that it was everything we dreamed of. It was fun, silly, had a story line we could follow, and most importantly english subtitles. The synopsis on line is as follows: A hip-hop group called Gan Core Club is stuck on a remote island. They find their paradise turning into horror when they encounter bloody islanders who kill people, and zombies that rising from the sea and prowling on the island.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and the reason it was surprising is that it was also written and directed by Joey Boy who is the main character, three things I normally think are no no’s but in a zombie movie, I have to say, it can work.
One thing that I found interesting in our movie watching experience is the preview portion at the beginning of the movie. They had a bit at the beginning where we all had to stand and give respects to the King in a preview biopic that ran on the screen for about 2-3 minutes. I really enjoyed it. It’s nice to see how the differences in a society manifest themselves in the most unlikely places.
