    "If you like Korean culture and langauge, then this movue is for you. The dialogue is in Korean, but there are English subtitles avail for those that don't speak the language. This movie is about jail, rape and murder, but hey, what can I say some people are into that type of stuff. If you like murder/criminal drama and Korean culture, then this movie is for you."

    "I decided to watch Parasite because everyone kept talking about it in my timeline. At first, I really thought it was just overhyped but I gave it a try and man, was I wrong! Parasite isn't only the best Korean movie out here but it has got to be one of the most mind-blowingly creative movies I've ever watched!!!"

    "I have heard some really good things about this movie, so I thought I would check it out. Overall I think it is pretty overrated. It is somewhat entertaining and there are definitely some funny parts, but it is also sappy and predictable."
