Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme involves movies where the characters are running away from something. Here are my picks this week.
Train to Busan – Everyone here is literally on the run. This is a South Korean zombie flick, where people are stuck on a train when they hear about the zombie virus running rampant in Seoul. There was news that Busan has managed to fortify themselves from the attack, making it a haven for unaffected refugees. Beyond protecting themselves from zombies and trying to get to Busan, there’s some emotional core among the main characters.
Guardians of the Galaxy – Despite the world saving they did, these characters are on a run although the movie isn’t about them running away. This was a great addition to the Marvel universe, and I’m hoping the sequel could recapture the magic and not solely rely on Groot for it.
The Fugitive – I remember liking the movie when I first watched it. It’s Harrison Ford, what’s not to like? He was falsely accused of murdering his wife, so he’s evading the cops while trying to figure out who killed his wife. This one is in need of a rewatch soon.
