Parasite review: Funny, Real, then Dark

I went into Parasite blind so I was incredibly shocked by what I saw. Bong Joon Ho has to be up for every writing and directing award for his work here.

Didn’t change the game but didn’t break anything either.   Continue reading Gemini Man combines aspects of two of my favorite action films
