Perfect movie. Perfect title, perfect actors, perfect setting, perfect script, every single thing. I was BLOWN away (pun intended you cheeky bastard) by this film. I was at my friend Rachel’s house and we were looking for something to watch … Continue reading

Parasite

This movie felt like, “What if OldBoy was kind of more about real estate?” or “What if the Monkey’s Paw was a Korean cautionary tale?” Obviously there’s a lot more going on than that, but Wow. Ok so I feel … Continue reading
