    Finally saw this
    Glad I did
    But I definitely didn't like it as much as most ppl
    The concept is very cool. When you think "parasite" I think what this film gives you is way down the list of possibilities that come to mind (which I mean in a good way). But narratively it felt really uneven and I struggled to really care at all about the characters after a while.
    But it was still entertaining.

    Loved it. I thought it was hilarious and one of the best movies of the year. I'm not big into foreign language films but you get used to the subtitles 15 minutes in.

    It’s a decent enough movie. Not something I’d feel inclined to give a rewatch.

    The Lighthouse not even getting a best pic nod is outrageous.

    I thought it was just pretty good. Everyone made fun of that Departed rat scene for being such heavy-handed symbolism, but there was so much Film School 101 symbolism stuff in this one (the long-takes of the family walking/running DOWNHILL to go home from the mansion on the hill, the scene where they were under the table UNDERNEATH the family on the couch, etc.).

    The storyline also wasn't very believable and took me out of it a bit. Overall I thought it was a good movie, but was really surprised afterwards it was as hyped as it was.

    This is much more of a mainstream response from you than I would have ever imagined.

    Still haven't watched The Lighthouse.

    I saw an analyst snippet that said Parasite should hit Hulu first, but I don't see Disney and Alamo playing well together well for this film. Expect a lengthening theatrical run that might spawn renegotiations on a proper streaming release (just a hunch).

    I am also personally bought in on that rumour. Criterion Collection also entered a partnership with Neon in Dec 2019, so just in time to affect Parasite's home video release. It has already been released for home video. Right now there is not a 4k blu ray for the US market, but I expect that will change.

    Solid movie. I liked it slightly better than Joker and Knives out (which I’ve also seen in the last few days). I need to watch the rest of these films y’all have been mentioning.

    Watched it lat night. A fresh story, so that was nice. However, I don't understand the immense amount of hype it has gotten. I haven't seen any other movies this year, so can't say how it measures up to the others.

    The subtitles thing is a non-issue to me. City of God is my favorite movie ever, or at least top five.
