Any fans here of Snowpiercer?

I never read the source material, but I did stop in at our local art house to see the movie when it was released. It was intriguing, but walked out of the theater not honestly knowing if I loved it or hated it. I can, however, say that I enjoy the tv adaption much more. The tv format allows a depth of story and character that you just can't capture in a film's 120 minutes, and they're certainly taking advantage of that by providing a rich, layered story.

Please share your thoughts if you too are watching.

3. The world has collapsed and the residents of the train

Chose to mirror the same society that led them to their current predicament.

This confounds me, even knowing obscene wealth waters the ills of everything they do. I'm hoping to see a change that will bring about equity and fairness to build a better future.

Course that would be an unexciting ending.

4. Well, after the war they were well on the way

to a fair and just society until Mr. Wilford made his grand entrance. That has been a nice twist, though, and made for some interesting story lines.

5. I like the tv show

The creator of the Snowpiercer movie, Bong Joon-ho, focuses on class differences. He directed Parasite, which won the Academy Award for best picture. I love his earlier movie The Host.

6. I like the TV show better than the movie. The source material is fantastic.

I think the movie is a little more true to the source, but the TV show digs further into class structure and general human shittiness a lot more (which, I mean, they have more time).
