    If these two movies were competing simultaneously both for best international feature film and Best Picture, which among the two would emerge victorious?

    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.

    Parasite 100%. It’s the bigger crowd pleaser, and had a lot more passion behind it.

    Parasite. It’s not even remotely close.

    Roma is a sleeping pill. Parasite is like a novel that is a page turner.

    I wouldn’t even nominate Roma for Best Picture.

    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

    Not to mention that Parasite has a combo of drama, satire and thriller.

    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.

    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).

    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.
