인류멸망보고서 (Doomsday Book) (Blu-ray release 2012-8-10) is a Korean sci-fi anthology movie that consists of three stories:

  1. Brave New World: This is a zombie story.  It may have something to say about the environment or the Korean society, but it still looks like a generic zombie story to me.
  2. Heavenly Creature: A robot assigned to work at a Buddhist temple receives enlightenment and begins to preach.  Its manufacturer considers it to be a threat to humanity.  I love this concept, but it is excessively talky, wasting its potential.
  3. Happy Birthday: A child orders an 8-ball from an alien web site, causing a meteor that looks like a massive 8-ball to hit earth and possibly destroy it.  I love this concept too.  Among the three stories, I like this one more.
