If these two movies were competing simultaneously both for best international feature film and Best Picture, which among the two would emerge victorious?February 16, 2020 at 5:16 am #1203348398
Both are phenomenal, but “Parasite” had the more exciting story. “Roma” is much more of a memory piece; it doesn’t really have a plot while “Parasite” is incredibly plot-driven.February 16, 2020 at 5:18 am #1203348400
Parasite 100%. It’s the bigger crowd pleaser, and had a lot more passion behind it.February 16, 2020 at 5:23 am #1203348402
Parasite. It’s not even remotely close.February 16, 2020 at 5:25 am #1203348404
Roma is a sleeping pill. Parasite is like a novel that is a page turner.February 16, 2020 at 5:28 am #1203348408
Roma is so boring.February 16, 2020 at 5:57 am #1203348417
I wouldn’t even nominate Roma for Best Picture.February 16, 2020 at 6:16 am #1203348429

Exactly. Roma is a visual masterpiece, incredibly beautiful to watch and has some heartbreaking moments but nothing really happens for most of the movie
Parasite has it all. Absolutely. Screenplay, acting, direction, pacing etc. Everything

It’s no contest.
While ROMA was visually stunning and contained solid work from Aparicio and de Tavira, it was a film I found a little too dull. I wouldn’t have even nominated it for Best Picture. I do think it was obviously better than GREEN BOOK though.
PARASITE, however, was a masterwork that was a beacon of structure and storytelling along with having a stellar acting ensemble. I also think it’s the best film of not just 2019 but of the decade.

Both a very good fils, but Parasite is waaaaay better.February 16, 2020 at 7:49 am #1203348504
I can see why Parasite would appeal to most people, but I choose Roma here without question. I have seen it in the theatre and I was totally submerged in its world.
Truly an unfogettable experience. It has also some of the most beautiful scenes I’ve seen in the decade.
I tend to like slow tempo movies in general (Tokyo Story comes to mind).February 16, 2020 at 10:22 am #1203348617
I just saw Parasite and it’s without question the tightest movie I’ve seen in years. Nothing was wasted, everything was on point. I’ve got so much more I’ll say in a proper review, but in comparison to Roma which I remember being really slow, Parasite easily takes the cake.February 16, 2020 at 10:29 am #1203348625
