Parasite

This is quite a good movie, has some dark humor but overall just really well done. Certainly makes some of the garbage coming out look like what it is ,trash. I was loaned a copy and had never heard of it. I've pre-ordered the disc. It does look like Fandango is streaming it atm.

Highly recommend.

I went in with high expectations and was disappointed. The set up was great but then it went places that I didn't really like and didn't think the movie earned. I would say B-. It doesn't deserve the uniformly high praise it is getting.

My wife and I found it to be a well-written, well-acted and very entertaining black comedy / thriller.

My previous comment on ADU's thread:

"Parasite - by Bong Joon Ho of The Host (sea monster) and Memories of Murder (human monster) fame, a Golden Globe winner about class warfare and inequality."

Now it's an Oscar nominated film.

Since most folks do not watch films with subtitle, it would be great to change the setting to UK with its famous Upstairs, Downstairs series which I have never watched. This would give Bong a bigger following other than our art house audience. I watch Dark with subtitle on rather than the English speaking version.
