LOL, he's quite brave for admiting something like this in these days of the 'Cancel Culture'. I wouldn't be shocked if Twitter starts trying to canel him for this story.

I recall he mentioned this forever ago. Very early in the films run. Nothing came of it. Maybe it was on reddit?

The Peach has become quite the unexpected movie star between Call Me by Your Name and this the past few years. So glad that Peach is finally getting its due. Disney would be wise to greenlight a James and the Giant Peach remake right about now.

The Parasite train keeps on gaining traction. The four-time Oscar-winning Bong Joon-ho dark comedy is crossing $50M right now at the domestic box office — but the real question is, can it beat Life Is Beautiful’s box office gross of $57M. If it maintains its momentum, signs are pointing to yes.

So here's a bit of a long, meandering story about this movie. There's a boy I went to school with, and played sports with for about 10 years, and in high school he became one of my sisters closest friends. Probably one of the most down-to-Earth, kindest people I've met in my entire life. Over a year and a half ago, less than a week before he was supposed to graduate, and the week before his prom, he collapsed, and doctors found an inoperable brain tumor, and he spent his prom and grad in the hospital, watching through FaceTime as his friends carried 'him' through the Prom and across the stage. Most of the boys in his grad class wore his basketball jersey # on their suits for prom, and on their gowns for grad. 

 

The family found out about an experimental treatment in Europe, and would have to send him overseas multiple times for him to have a chance. His friends and family put on fundraisers, and our town was able to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for him to get his treatment. And the treatment helped for a while. He spend another year, while not in great condition, able to see his friends, go out, and he even got started on some classes to eventually transfer for a degree in software engineering. But his condition worsened, and he can no longer walk by himself and on some days has trouble speaking. 

 

My sister talked to him yesterday and told me about the conversation she had with him. She said he was texting her about a movie he recently watched, Parasite, and how it was one of the coolest movies he had ever watched. Said that it had so many twists and turns, and he was so excited when watching it. This had been the first time in months she had heard him so excited over something. The movie meant something to him, and made him feel excited about something. Given everything he has gone through, and continues to go through, this movie was able to make him feel happy.

 

And it just makes me think about how we talk about movies. Sure, some of us may not like a movie as much as others, and we have sometimes very heated arguments over these opinions. But seeing how important a movie can be, or the impact it can have on someone's life, no matter how small, goes to show the importance of storytelling, and championing when a movie succeeds or is able to affect so many people in a positive way. I went through this whole story to give a sense of context of the impact Parasite had on this boy, how it was able to make him happy and excited about something, and how his family and friends were once again able to see him be excited about something. I think this is so important for us to recognize when discussing film, because whatever our opinions are on a particular story/movie/studio, there are people around the world who are affected in different ways by the stories we hear and the movies we watch.

Parasite is lucky to have Oscar ceremony to be held on 9 February, the earliest ever Oscar.  

 

If Oscar goes on with its usual date in last Sunday of February, parasite will receive little Oscar bump as all countries are now busy fighting the coronavirus and people will avoid crowd in cinema.

 

At least Parasite got to enjoy 1-2 weeks calm period before everything goes south starting late-Feb.

That number is for the re-release only. The total in Hong Kong is close to $2.1m ($1.8m first run + $0.3m re-release).

Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” is proving to be a streaming monster since making its exclusive debut April 8 on Hulu. The streaming giant confirms to IndieWire that in just one week “Parasite” has become the most streamed independent or foreign language film among all titles available on Hulu. Even more impressive, “Parasite” is now the second most-watched movie overall on Hulu ever among titles currently available to stream. What that means is that in one week “Parasite” out-streamed the lifetimes of popular titles such as “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” “A Quiet Place,” “Transformers: The Last Knight,” and “Creed II,” all of which have been available to stream on Hulu for several months.
