And we care about his opinion why? I doubt he even sat through Gone With the Wind.
Trump hasn’t seen the movie. He is a complete dumbass and so are his supporters. Such a huge downgrade from Obama, I really can’t even.February 17, 2020 at 2:16 pm #1203349840
The following additional nominations that I would have voted for if I was an Oscar voter.
Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor – Song Kang-ho
Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress – Cho Yeo-jeong
Academy Award for Best Original Score – Jung Jae-il
Academy Award for Best Cinematography – Hong Kyung-pyo
Parasite would have a total of 10 oscars nominatons, had these 4 were included, it would have tied with OUATIH, The Irishman, 1917, with each 10 nominations.
2019 was a stellar year, with so many great movies, far better than 2018.February 13, 2020 at 2:29 pm #1203345941
The dumba$# FINALLY saw the movie and had a change of opinion. He should have seen the movie before going on a rampage about it winning.
It’s completely a 180 degree turn of his opinion about parasite. He now has the following claims:
1.) He enjoyed Parasite. He found the ending Fantastic. He claims it is a Brilliantly made film and thus recommends it.
2.) He doesn’t mind reading subtitles, he watched Parasite feeling as if there weren’t any subtitles at all. He would have preferred it to be dubbed though, but he doesn’t mind it being subtitled.
3.) He doesn’t think Parasite is better than Joker nor vice versa. But he still thinks Joker should win Best Picture because it resonates to him more on a personal level as he is a comic book aficionado.
I’m surprised he didn’t bash Parasite after seeing the movie. I feel like he enjoys the publicity though, even if it is extremely unfavorable to him.February 13, 2020 at 12:15 pm #1203345729
I find this bogus. Why CAN’T the director have a trophy of his own for winning the International Feature Film Oscar?
I remember reading from somewhere that the Oscar does belong to the director when he/she wins Best International Feature Film. The name of the country gets to be engraved in that oscar as well, along with the name of the director as he/she represents the creative force of the winning country.February 13, 2020 at 2:58 am #1203345231
He is serious. His whole channel has videos of him bashing Birds of Prey, Captain Marvel etc. This loser literally says that he didn’t watch Parasite because it’s a foreign movie with subtitles yet he’s angrily bashing it. He’s nothing more than a stereotypical, sexist, racist, basement chairbound incel and I’m glad to see him getting dragged everywhere
He now claims he just finished watching Parasite and he will post his thoughts about the film soon.February 13, 2020 at 2:33 am #1203345209
I have been a working as cinematographer and director for over 12 years. I belive in my PROFESSIONAL opinion. For Sam Mendes to direct the film to a technical marvel and still have this high of an emotional impact is a marvel. I agree on all aspects for Bongs directing. It was also amazing the way he handled characters and genres, but for me the technical achievement is more impressive. Personal opinion. Again, I believe Bong deserved the Screenplay and Picture Awards, but Mendes deserved to be rewarded for what he made of with 1917.
Personally, I felt 1917 was a hollow spectacle that is over-reliant on the one-shot technique, which it draws too much attention, which while it can be immersive, it can also be distracting, at certain times. I found myself consciously aware that the actors are being tracked by a camera most of the time, adding to the feeling how artificial, pre-planned and staged everything is. I do applaud Deakin’s camera choreography here but in terms of the direction, no matter how impressive and complex the technical achievement is, it cannot rescue itself from how shallow and inauthentic it inadvertently presents itself.
I’m happy that Bong won an Academy Award for Best Director, he truly deserves it for directing a unique tonally marvelous picture, and there’s nothing you could say in your PROFESSIONAL opinion, that can convince me otherwise.February 13, 2020 at 1:39 am #1203345196
I loved her performance but it didn’t really strike me as award worthy. After watching marriage story, I thought Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansonn gave better performances and if somehow the latter got nominated for Best Supporting Actress (instead of Best Actress), Laura would have been shut out.February 12, 2020 at 1:53 pm #1203344660
It’s a visual masterpiece. It will probably be nominated for the categories the Grand Budapest Hotel was. I don’t think it will be nominated in any acting categories though.
- Production Design
- Costume Design
- Makeup and Hairstyling
- Original Score
- Film Editing
- Original Screenplay
- Best Picture
The production design will definitely be a contender, based alone from the trailer.February 12, 2020 at 1:33 pm #1203344632
This is kind of a reminder of when Moonlight win Best Picture back in 2017………… Listen to this a%$hole, Robert Storms rant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTr6sYWWCNI&t=248s
I read somewhere that he wasn’t really serious. In any case, that is a very dumb argument to make.February 12, 2020 at 1:29 pm #1203344620
The DGA is voted by Directors only and they appriciate what an amazing feat and achievement is making 1917. And they awarded it. The Oscars are voted by all members and those people vote for what they like best, not what was best. Please note, that Parasite is my top 5 movie of the year and it is an amazing film, but Directing was UNBELIVABLE in 1917. It was pure directing. Parasite won on passion. The right thing to do was to give Director to 1917 and Picture to Parasite. Not both.
Can you explain to me how unbelievable the direction in 1917 is? Cinematography was clearly the best feature in the movie. But I found the direction to be “one note”.February 11, 2020 at 11:52 am #1203343094
Just finished this half an hour ago and I’m confident to say that if the members of the Academy take some time to watch this, it will win Best Director, Original Screenplay and become the first foreign film to win Best Picture. I’m smiling as I write this.
This aged very well.
