    ★★★★★

    One of cinema's great triumphs. I'm actually still confused as to how Sam Raimi made this BETTER than the first one. More creative, funnier, more interesting story and character arcs. Don't even get me started on the camerawork because Sam absolutely came with his horror lens and provided us with some pretty amazing imagery (the surgery scene with Doc Ock ahhhhhhh, definitely Evil Dead vibes. Also, my dad definitely used to skip past that scene when I was four lol).…

    This was my choice for FFC because it has such a special place in my heart and I couldn't even tell you why. It just exists there.

    I FINALLY got to see this because I bought it yesterday. I sat down to watch it with my sister and words cannot describe the feeling I got after watching it. 'Parasite' is something (art, a movement, an ideology, I don't know) that is powerful and intricate. Bong Joon-Ho really violated my whole state of being. I think I went through every emotion that is possible whilst in the process of viewing this film. It starts off as a comedy…
