Director Bong Joon-ho's new movie Parasite screened in advance for Cineworld Unlimited members on Friday. This critically-lauded South Korean thriller is the story of a poor family that invades the lives of their wealthier counterparts – with disastrous consequences.
The movie has already received rave reviews and several Oscar nominations, including historic South Korean firsts in the Best Picture and Best International Feature categories. So what did Unlimited viewers make of it?
Sam says the movie blew him away, and that it's more than deserving of the accolades being heaped on it.
Jessywise says Joon-ho's typically unpredictable direction kept her guessing throughout.
I thank god for films like Parasite and for @cineworld for letting me see them early. What a ride! An absolute blast from start to finish.— Jessywise (@JessyCritical) January 24, 2020
Fake Shemp describes the movie as an emotional rollercoaster.
Clare says she can't wait to engage with the film's twisted atmosphere all over again.
LOVED Parasite. So convincingly acted and well plotted, I gasped multiple times. I can see why it’s had so much praise.— Clare (@eatentexp) January 24, 2020
Thank you @cineworld! I hope you’re planning a mainstream release so I can have a second watch!! pic.twitter.com/nbuFJyjvIN
Christopher Dray says he loved the movie, although advises potential viewers to go in unawares.
Another @cineworld #UnlimitedScreening and this time it was (my much anticipated) #Parasite - definitely lives up to the hype. Just wow. The best unlimited screening yet to be honest and there's been 5 this month Best to go in knowing nothing else about this film... *****— Christopher Dray (@YayItsChris) January 24, 2020
And Kyle Snape says the movie is a rare example of 10 out of 10 perfection.
I rarely come out of a film thinking something is worth a 10/10 and also one of my new all time favourites.— Kyle Snape (@kylemsnape) January 24, 2020
It has completely changed with Parasite. What an actual marvel of a film. The perfect balance of thriller, subversion and social commentary wrapped in an entertaining bow.
Don't forget about your next Unlimited screening: Steve Coogan satire Greed, which previews in advance on the 28th of January.
