    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Knives Out was my favorite film I've seen in 2019. It was so masterfully crafted. An engaging modern murder mystery with extremely varied and lovable characters. I love it.
    But now, a little late, I finally managed to see Parasite. And while Knives Out is still amazing and the story is immensely well constructed I wasn't prepared in any way shape or form for Parasite. I managed to avoid any spoilers and even plot synopsis so I had not the…

    Still it was somewhat enjoyable and I like that the story dropped hints for the ending from pretty early on.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★★

    I knew and loved the Guardians even before the first movie was announced. So I was filled with joy and terror when Vol. 1 came along. Could it live up to the characters? It's way to bonkers to work as a live action film.
    But James Gunn delivered a really great origin story for Quill, Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax. Vol. 1 does have it's flaws (boring villian like most all Marvel movies, almost too typical origin story setup and…
