Look man you canít expect Americans to READ some movie and also it needs to be 6 parts so we can stretch it out to cover our rapidly thinning programming schedule

I have nothing against Joaquin or Joker, but Adam Driver as a sad divorce dad made me feel emotions and Joaquin did not.

I loved Marriage Story tbh but Parasite was 100% the best film of 2019 and all the praise and awards itís had have been so correct

Greetings from Asbury Park

I was hoping Jojo Rabbit would win some more awards, but apparently critics are super divided about it for some reason.

I am tempted to just read the entire plot of Parasite, none of the previous movies I have seen from Bong Joon-ho have really done anything for me, and nobody can seemingly explain the plot of the movie.

The reason no one's explaining the plot is because it's a movie best seen cold

Don't do that. It's not a twisty-twist kind of story but reading the summary should worsen the movie for you.

I bailed on Homeland when they got rid of Quinn. Has anything interesting happened since then?

also kinda related to Homeland, I'm enjoying F. Murray Abraham's role on Mythic Quest ... and the show in general

If you really have to know SOMETHING: itís about a rich family and a poor family. okay go see it

I liked but didnít love Snowpiercer and Okja but think Parasite is a masterpiece fwiw. Havenít seen any of Bingís other Korean films but I definitely will soon

This is a bit more ĎMemories of Murderí Bong than Okja/Snowpiercer Bong, itís an excellent film.

Watched all of Raven's Banquet on Apple Plus, and uhhh. This show isnt funny, but I get the sense that it was going for a drama vibe rather than comedy vibe. Certainly the fifth episode is a straight up Jake Johnson / Christin Miloti vehicle that barely relates to anything else.

It's good, but not what it's advertised as being. And a little corny.

Saul Berenson to psych doctors: How's Carrie doing?
Doctor: Not good, still missing 6 months of her memory; lied about what happened in Russian captivity during polygraph, emotionally unstable.
Saul: Okay well I need her to go back to Kabul. Today. So that's happening. Right now.

Since this is the last season we won't get my much-anticipated Homeland / Jack Ryan crossover

An HBO miniseries remake of Parasite would absolutely win the Emmy.

They would almost certainly change the title though.

HBO Exec A: "We have Adam McKay and Bong Joon-ho working on a TV remake of this well-known, beloved, critically-acclaimed Best Picture winner named 'Parasite.'"
HBO Exec B: "Let's change the name so that nobody has any idea it's connected to the film."
HBO Exec A: "What do you think about 'Wealth Snatchers'?"

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?
