Movie Review: Parasite

Parasite is a heist movie. A heist-goes-wrong movie. A heist-goes-grisly movie.

And nearly all of it is hilarious. Cutely hilarious, cleverly hilarious, darkly hilarious.

Parasite is the story of a smart-but-poor family who manage to parlay a part-time job recommendation into employment for all four of them, in service of a rich family with a beautiful house. What starts as fudged credentials turns into a full-on con job and infiltration mission, the same sort of thing you’d see in, well, a heist movie. But then it doesn’t stop: the universe throws a few curveballs, and the family ends up in some very uncomfortable situations—some humorous and some deadly serious.

Movie Review: Knives Out

I’m not going to movies in theaters much these days, which means I don’t know what movies are playing these days. But Knives Out caught my eye when my colleague Cassie let me know that I should in fact be interested.

Incredibles 2

Exactly what it claims to be. Exactly what I expected and enjoyed from an Incredibles sequel. If you liked the original Incredibles (or Big Hero 6), it’s worth seeing.
