Parasite is fantastic and deserves the win but I get the impression that the academy wanted to break the 'first foreign film to win best picture' thing, and Roma clearly would've done that last year by winning if it wasn't released on Netflix. Roma is outrageously good, and Green Book winning it was someone clearly having a laugh. Not that Parasite wasn't a worthy winner, but Roma deserved the first foreign language best picture much, much more. You only need to look at the failures of films nominated that were released on Netflix to see that there is still beef there.

I haven't seen it so could be wrong, but it is the sort of thing the Academy would do.

Well Koreans are clearly not white, less white than Mexicans. So obvious choice.

12 Strong. Amazing that it’s a true story. Decent action. Glad I watched.

Knives Out - absolutely… fine.

The Lighthouse - gripping stuff, some of the Dafoe monologues were incredible. The Greek mythology shot at the end made me smile. Still think R Pattz acts like he’s acting in everything that he’s in.

Paradise Beach. Probably the worst film I’ve ever watched.

Just watched Atlantics cuz it was recommended itt.

Meandering drama following typical art film conventions. The most engaging parts are it's personal depiction of unemployment and deprivation in the beginning. But it quickly veers into a cul-de-sac regarding the supernatural and never recovers.

The plot touches on a lot of issues regarding migration without having anything insightful to say.

All in all, I'm guessing the people saying that it was one of the best films of 2019 are die hard lefties.

Swear Cannes is becoming just as political as the Oscars. This was a palme dor nominee. Bonkers.

'And Then We Danced' on Tuesday night followed by 'Blue is the Warmest Colour' last night. Both great.
