    The Platform

    ★★★½

    2020

    The platform is awesome. 

    I don’t care what anyone says about how good of a film it is. This movie is straight up awesome. Yes it’s in your face and not at all subtle about its themes, but I don’t mind it. My enjoyment of in your face edgy films should be expected of me after all my favorite film is fight club. Very similar to Fight Club, The Platform ( in a filmmaking aspect ) is not an…

    Parasite

    ★★★★

    This movie clings to me.

    I tend to do a lot of my movie watching during the late hours of the night. I’m not too sure why it just seems like an ideal time to do so. It’s quiet and peaceful, nothing can distract me from a film that way. I watched parasite at around 2AM in the morning and I am so glad that I did. The experience I had was full immersion and concentration on this rollercoaster ride…
