    ★★★★★

    'Parasite' is phenomenal. It is the type of film that inspires others to create, and doesn't relent in that pursuit. Every frame, every line of dialogue feels expertly crafted. I cannot stress how well done this is. In a year with releases from Martin Scorsese, Robert Eggers, and Quinton Tarantino 'Parasite' stands above them all. I cannot think of another film that has made me question my existence like this has. Also this film is funny as hell. I don't…

    Wow. I might need to adjust the ratings of other films I've watched this year already because I cannot look at them and then look at 'The Irishman' and say they are equal in 5/5 (turns out 'Parasite' is also a 5/5 film). I live around 2 hours south of Portland, OR and I had to drive there to be able to see this gorgeous film on the big screen. I drove there sat in awe for three and a…

    ★★★

    Before starting to watch I knew the spine of the film would be the theme of relate-ability. A lot of people around the world struggle with their weight. That was also the reason I liked it. Not the best if the year, the story is just okay, but the actresses really brought it together and prevailed. Is this Jillian Bell's first leading film role? I have never seen her in anything besides workaholics.

    I had watched the trailer before choosing…

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I'll preface this by saying that I have never seen any of the first six 'Star Wars' films. I have seen all but Solo of the recent ones in the series and thought I should go back and watch them all before episode nine comes out. Also I know some of the big story beats already like Luke's parentage and what happens in their fight. I obviously won't have a huge reaction to that but I will try my best.…

    ★★★★

    This is a very well made and clever film. Rian Johnson proves he is a much better director than 'The Last Jedi' said he was. The first hour goes by pretty slow and you do feel that slow burn but the humor is more than enough to get to the second hour where the film really kicks in. You can tell the actors had a great time filming this but, at times, it feels like they overact. It is somewhat…

    ★★★★★

    Still a 5/5. After the second watch you can see what's coming yet it doesn't diminish what this film is and what it has accomplished. The trailer says "You expect 'Parasite' to be one thing but it mutates into something else." And that describes it perfectly.
