“A miracle of a film: a riotous social satire that’s as 
gloriously entertaining as it is deeply sardonic.”

Parasite ? Oscar

Reviewer: Bernard also Date: 2020-02-23

Enjoyed the film. Original and darkly funny but Best film ...No. I would certainly have gone for the amazing and deeply moving 1917. I think the cry for diversity played a part in the selections this year

Not for me

Reviewer: Godfather Part 2Date: 2020-02-22

I appreciate this won the Oscar and i appreciate it is well acted, shot and quite original but i just didn't feel entertained and my mind wandered at the mid point. Is it a case of the Emperor's new clothes? Godfather it aint. Or Chariots of Fire!

Melodramatic

Reviewer: Johnnyno3Date: 2020-02-21

A surprising choice for best movie oscar. I thought it was just another movie about conning the rich, and thinking all that was justified. It is certainly different being a Korean movie, but not an original story by any means.

Extraordinary

Reviewer: Odes on film Date: 2020-02-21

This film is both very funny, horrific and sometimes sinister. It contains edge-of-the-seat thrills in a script I doubt any western screenwriter could conjure up, with a plot predicated on the universal theme of the ever widening gap between rich and poor, obviously a major socio-political issue in what is Asia's fourth largest economy. So, see this and answer for yourself who or what is the parasite presented here? Highly recommended.
