Parasite

Parasite is the very definition of a good movie. Challenging, funny, brutal, entertaining, and expertly assembled. Few movies strike this perfect balance.

Feels like the Coen Brothers' version of Ocean's Eleven.

What's Good: The plot is wild, funny, unexpected, and smart. It's good to see Soderbergh back in the directors' chair, revisiting a genre that he has had a lot of...

The Xenomorph is a mystery no more, and that’s a shame.

What’s Good: Ridley Scott delivers more stellar imagery as director, it’s good to see the Xenomorph back in action, Michael Fassbender puts on a commanding performance in a dual role,...
