Josh Smith's Professional Review: 9.2/10

Alright this movie was insane. This comedy/thriller has a very unique plot with some WILD twists and turns. IMDb gave it a 8.6/10. Metacritic gave it 96%. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 99%. But most importantly I gave it a 9.2/10. A couple of my buddies watched it and raved about it, so I finally decided to give it a try. And boy was I glad I did. There’s a couple hurdles to jump in order to watch this movie. 1) Its on Amazon Prime. $3.99 for a 48 hour rent. 2) Its a Korean film. So you’ll need to follow the movie strictly off captions. My girlfriend didn’t like the movie, but that’s because she can’t go 5 minutes without looking at her phone. But if you’re not like her you’ll be just fine. I’ve known about this movie for a while but put it on the back burner because it wasn’t in English. I like my movies to be in the only language I know. Just a preference. Anyways, I’m glad I overcame that and gave it a watch because it’s one of the better movies I’ve seen as of recent. And we’re all stuck in quarantine, so what do we have to lose? Here’s the trailer and Rotten Tomatoes summary of the movie:

“Bong Joon Ho brings his work home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.”
