Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

RE: To see true class and money differences, see. Slumdog Millionaire...

And the thing I noted earlier - Koreans in this film had the opportunities - schools exist they are free - and you can work hard and legitimately make something of yourself. But the Kim family are lazy thugs who do not work hard and instead are a crime family out to steal everything.

As I said - this is a big problem as the foundation of this film because I leave not liking anyone on the Kim family. So I found myself liking the Park's more - not that I liked them either but the goal of a class warfare film tends to be that you root for the lower class. I liked a lot of it mind you - I did find it funny and even clever how the Kim's essentially moved their whole family into the unsuspecting Parks - and it had a Tarantino-esque subplot about the couple in the basement so I still walked away liking the movie a fair bit - but I don't think it was the best out of the lot. 1917 while a safe best picture winner I would have been fine with.

BUT, I have said that 1917 needs to be seen on the big screen - like Gravity - to truly appreciate the visual effects of this movie and the long single shots. BUT most Hollywood voters get sent screeners to see at home on a portable bluray player or on their home screens.

And when you take that film's strongest attribute away from it, it perhaps has to rely more on its not that strong plot-line. IE; Parasite probably plays better on the small screen. 1917 was my fourth favorite of the lot.

Perhaps I'll watch them a second time to see how I feel.

I still say Jojo Rabbit would have been the most daring and best choice out of the lot. I know in 5 years and again at 10years I'll be happy to watch Jojo Rabbit again. I doubt I can say that about 1917 or Parasite.
