Parasite is one of the best movie I've seen in years. The script, acting, dialogue, sets, and cinematography are all exquisite. The movie has such deep meaning, subtext, and symbolism that it takes several viewings to sort it all out.

I'm a little puzzled as to why it's such a hit in America whose citizenry generally cannot pass a basic civics exam, cannot point out their own country on a world map, do not like to read, definitely do not like subtitled movies, and whose movie tastes veer more towards Michael Bay.

A solid 9 from me.

It's a 7/10. I just found it okay. There are a ton of scenes that just drag on for too long.

8/10 to me. Great acting but some scenes just drags a bit, probably different cinema techniques over there.

I went in without watching the trailer and absolutely loved it. 9 out of 10 for me.

9/10. Solid movie in all aspects: writing, directing, acting. Joon-ho Bong's movies are always a breath of fresh air.

10/10 I don't think there was any way it could've possibly been better.

It was a really spectacular film on so many levels.

I really did not know what to expect going in on this one and it delivered and exceeded all my expectations despite all the hype surrounding it.

On a storytelling level, Parasite was unpredictable the entire way through. A lot of twist and turns I just did not see coming yet they all made logical sense from a story perspective. The acting, the music score and everything is top-notch.

One of the biggest stars of the film is its set design and how every frame packs a certain detail that reminisces the themes in symbolic ways. The dynamics of the plot all mixed like bread and butter served purpose. I don't feel like anything went into waste in Parasite's execution.

It is also a genre-bending piece, and it can be seen as many different genres because of that.

2019 was already a stellar year for cinema and Parasite might just be one of the very best and well-deserved of all its recognition and success. I can't stress enough how much this film needs to be watched.

8. A very good, well made film. Wasn't as weird as I thought it would be.
