A man steals a thousand dollars from a business and uses it to put a roof over his family's head for another month. What if we disliked it because it's just not our kind of movie? The one negative review of Parasite. Just before the turn, it is said by Kim Chung-sook that were she so rich, she would also be kind. I was loving it until the last 30 minutes but now I do appreciate the ending the way it was ! This is one insult too many, and while overwhelmed by the circumstances and powerless to do much of anything, he expresses his frustration, grief, and self-actualization through violence. The brutally graphic ending was comical, an over exaggerated blood bath mirroring the graphic ending in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (which by the way I loved). The first hours of Parasite is a whirlwind of fun, fascinating, and engaging ideas. I was hoping we would be blessed with 2 consecutive Oscar. Everyone is just a person, which is an important distinction to make. But movies that revolve around politics really bore me. The people who are closest to them in station, living a hard life and struggling to survive, are looked down upon as thoroughly if not more so than they have been. This globally successful blockbuster proves that the entire world is hungry for a clever critique of social issues, especially surrounding the class … He sneaks out of the house by the skin of his toes, and travels barefoot through torrential rain from the height of luxury he may never enjoy again to the literal bottom of society, only to find that his home is not only flooded, but drowning in sewage. Based on the previews (or what little I found before the movie), I expected this to be about an actual parasite or creature as opposed to the analogy that the poor family is the parasite on the rich family. Gratuitous sex, totally unnecessary to the plot...excessive violence, again not really necessary to the plot.

Parasite is the most overrated Oscar winner of all time and apparently nobody is allowed to discuss the flaws, plot holes, and very problematic subtext without being harassed. Parasite is the first foreign language film to win Best Picture, and has won the first ever Oscars for South Korea, a country with a vibrant cinema culture that is having an incredible year. The post will then be hidden like this. The rich family had believable characters, but all the grifters in the story were absolutely not believable. I finally was able to watch Parasite and following my viewing, I decided to look into the reviews on IMDB. He stays on his side of the line. Mendelsohn will play the lead cop in the feature. Yes, there are man issues with the hollywood studio system, but leave Boon Joon Ho out of that conversation. Everyone is allowed to like or dislike a film for whatever reasons they see fit. But to be fair, critical darling movies like this are typically not my cup of tea. Your short attention span does not invalidate his post. I find that opposing views can be illuminating as far as understanding the thought processes of people whoI do not agree with. I guess the tension in my mind about this final outcome is understanding that Kim snapped- upon reflection the way Kim stumbles and seems disoriented after he commented the stabbing makes his action more believable. A woman commits murder, and the victim assaulted her cousin. I’ve been waiting for the hype train to slow down to watch this movie so I could try to go into it without any expectations. [+]My_Opinions_Are_Good comment score below threshold-9 points-8 points-7 points 10 months ago (1 child). Not even joking. And the Park family aren't bad guys. I don’t understand this movie at all. That the film does not deliver absolutes is a virtue. If viewed strictly as in the moment, where his decision is fueled only by Park Dong-ik's reaction to Geun-se's smell, it seems irrational and vindictive. I am Asian. More subtly, because he's a good driver and knows his way around Seoul like the back of his hand, he definitely drove a lot in his past; so he either worked as a driver or/and owned a car himself -- but he can't afford one anymore, never mind one that's new enough to have the latest hi-tech gadgetry. Yup, though I've added that Ki-taek getting beat down extended to well before the beginning of the film, too. [–]WhovianForever 7 points8 points9 points 10 months ago (0 children). Would avoid . Parasite won the Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, which has become a yearly celebration of films that proclaim progressive, anti-American attitudes. Pardon me If I’m not a millennial.

Are you seriously going to belittle someone for posting a well thought out rebuttal to common criticisms of a movie they enjoyed? They are not heroes, and if you believe that for a story to be commentary it should have clearly defined good guys and bad guys and complete moral clarity and never an action to muddy the waters, then we disagree. Maybe for film reasons it is stretched a little, but to say that is breaks suspension of disbelief is going a bit far. The rich family didn't seem that bad. Parasite, starring Lee Sun-kyun (left) and Cho Yeo-jeong, takes a "microscopic" look at two families — one rich, one poor. Since its release, Parasite has won the Palme d’Or — the top prize — at the Cannes Film Festival, received incredibly positive reviews, and broke box-office records worldwide. But Parasite might be his most intricate examination of the topic so far. Even this does not quite break him, and he is willing to toe the line in the throws of this sadness. I really want to watch it again, just to experience it. … Parasite is a masterful piece of social satire and dark comedy, a scathing portrait of both the upper and lower classes.

Palme d’Or winner at the 2019 Cannes Film festival, Bong’s Parasite (Gisaengchung) does indeed thwart expectations, but the question is — to what end? The story was interesting but not compelling. I don't agree that they were shown as stupid, or anything of the sort. Whether sad or uplifting, or both, I want to leave the theatre with a new perspective on life. Parasite is the most overrated Oscar winner of all time and apparently nobody is allowed to discuss the flaws, plot holes, and very problematic subtext without being harassed. Movie wasn't that great. Wealthy idiots and people who have leveraged their intelligence into money. The thing that I didn't like about that was that it felt like watching a different movie after that point. Then to listen to that same employer who has effectively claimed that you are less than him by virtue of your position in society get off on the idea of his wife being some drug addicted prostitute, fantasizing about your daughter's panties. As far as the Kim's being too smart, I don't think that they were. :::Alerta de Spoiler::: After 10 minutes I was ready to leave "Parasite" but I can count on one hand how many movies I have walked out on so I decided to stay and find out why word of mouth was being so positive about the film. [–]its2ce[S] 0 points1 point2 points 10 months ago (0 children), [–]Ghibli214 1 point2 points3 points 10 months ago (0 children). A mostly successful detour into morally complex social realism.

She is not so rich as to be comfortable, so she will fight to maintain her status. Yes, Kim was fed up, and could have blamed Park ultimately for the harm his family endured, but the stabbing seems incompatible with the care he had for his family. Kevin's family in Home Alone are shitty people, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is such an excellent movie, Paddington 2 is the Dark Knight of talking animal family movies. Is the fact that they didn't a gamebreaking anti-rich reduction where the wealthy are presented as too vapid to have even been successful? Why would they dig deeper?

No need to disparage them. **** movie let's start first you have the most hate able character and then you say rich people are bad but if they were kind then the main character will steal them and kill the innocent father with family with underage guy who **** underage girl old man lies and of e course female character for sexual reason + the movie have sex moment for no reason and it's for you if you do like the movie you will sex movie moment and this movie isn't comedy it's not at all, Notable Video Game Releases: New and Upcoming, The Freshman 15: 2020's Best Debut Albums, Best of 2018: Film Awards and Nominations, Music title data, credits, and images provided by, Movie title data, credits, and poster art provided by.

His wife is currently being attacked by a madman, threatening to stab her in front of everyone. Es una película buena, pero sobrevalorada. Industri film Korea lagi gesit-gesitnya unjuk gigi pada dunia. I'm a huge fan of Joon-ho Bong's works. A battered woman shows up to take care of a husband trying to escape death due to debts, and the family's reaction is to push them into the basement so that they may remain a step higher on the social staircase. Beautifully shot but terrible pacing, acting. His post was well thought out and enjoyable to read, regardless of his original inspiration in writing it. Bong Joon Ho brings his work home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. From this position, he and all of his family members are called in to serve at the pleasure of the rich, who know nothing of the recent tragedy and care not all about what may or may not be happening with other people. I believe that they were willing to work, willing to do whatever it took to keep food on the table and get a shot at living somewhere other than the basement where drunks pee right outside the window. And to top it off, which I stated earlier, it's a downer. By the end of its brisk two hours and 11 minutes, it will have cycled through black comedy, social satire, suspense, and slapstick. It is part of a character arc where a downtrodden man, one who has had quite the past day, finally loses it and crosses the line. [–]Nysor 15 points16 points17 points 10 months ago (0 children). The Host 2020 brought a year of fantastic movies to the Academy of Motion Pictures, including the film “Parasite.” “Parasite” is a foreign film and the first foreign film to win Best Picture. As a parting note, that people spoke about it in terms of the liberal hollywood message also bothered me, because the movie is Korean. [–]LEJ5512 13 points14 points15 points 10 months ago (0 children). They did it cruelly and efficiently and (almost) without remorse. And that is reinforced in some ways by her reaction to Moon-gwang's pleading. His daughter is to be a prop in celebration of an unruly child, as is he. I’ve seen all of Joon-Ho Bong’s films and while I’ve never out right hated any of them, I’ve never thought that they were for me. Nothing really gripped me to say, "I like what I'm seeing! Did I watch the parody of the "Parasites" movie that gets such glorious reviews? Beautiful and inspiring cinematography. I was hoping we would be blessed with 2 consecutive Oscar winners - Green Book and 1917- made to simultaneously entertain and enlighten audiences. Can't see what everyone is going on about. Weird bad overacting, overhyped, cheesy and predictable story. Then the guy in the bunker shows up and I couldn't stop laughing 'cause it seemed like a super villain arriving suddenly in a very silly fashion. Overrated AF,the first half of this movies is amazing but then becomes just unfunny and predictable. Speaking to Parasite's Negative Reviews (SPOILER ALERT) (self.movies). In the end, they lost, because of their incompetence. Beginning with the end, Kim Ki-taek's decision makes perfect sense. Now I fear that the artsy crowd has its "The Artist", "Birdman", and "No Country for Old Men", unwatchable trash that won't rate higher than a test pattern on overnight TV. Film Parasite bercerita tentang isu sosial di … But a young boy in the midst of a seizure takes precedent, and to the point of all the other tragedies being completely ignored. His son is almost in the best position, being allowed more humanity than the rest of the family by virtue of being the love interest of a teenage girl (a plot point that gave me pause due to its statutory faux-pas). He is wrong to do this. Critics Pick Film Review: ‘Parasite’ Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho is on excoriating form in his exceptional pitch-black tragicomedy about social inequality in … Immediately I got turned off by that realization, which I find to be immensely more boring. This is South Korean movie from a famous Korean director Bong Joon Ho. They tend to be unpleasant and have an obsession with being locked away both physically and emotionally from the outside world.

Parasite de Bong Joon-Ho est un puzzle démoniaque, abrasif, violent, qui fait chavirer le cœur des spectateurs autant qu’il fait déjouer chaque rouage de son scénario pour faire de ses rebondissements un élément de langage qui parle autant à la fibre sociale du film qu’à son attachement pour le cinéma de genre. Parasite (2019) Content by Tony Macklin. And they are parasites. And not a stench as a result of being unwashed (as is the case with Geun-se), but because those too poor to afford exclusive private transportation all share the stench of the poor. One of the first line items was a second full time job, as though working 80 hours a week, almost half the hours you spend alive every seven days, is just to be accepted. Could they have tried to check international references or do some google-fu to really vet their newest employees, yes. I'm a huge fan of Joon-ho Bong's works.
