    Also what happened in Thailand yesterday (or in other countries countless times before) should be the reason Joker shouldn't win Best Picture.

    Phoenix's speech was one of the best I've ever heard ANYWHERE not just at the Oscars.

    I watched 3 Extremes for the first time like ten or fifteen years ago along with Audition, quite the double (quadruple?) feature lol.

    The Wailing was fantastic as well, even if it was really long and a lot surely went over my head.

    That felt like the longest speech ever, and something's wrong with that ladies face, too much work done

    I feel like he is intelligent and his message was good, but at several points he lost me (what's the thing about milking cows?), not the best speech giver

    I think he's saying when we talk about race, we're saying 1 race dominates other races and it shouldn't be that way... he's drawing the same parallel to human wanting to dominate over the natural world and whether we should do that as we are experiencing all these climate change impact caused by human.

    If we're to change how we deal with race we should extend that to everything else as well...

    The Wailing became great for me when I watched a video explaining all the spiritual stuff that happened at the end of the movie... you kinda needed to know that stuff to understand it.

    The Wailing is one of the best horror movies I’ve ever seen.

    Come off it. Parasite fully deserved the awards it received on its merits alone. Fantastic film. I'd argue it's Bong's best and I've seen all of them.

    I honestly didn't think the committee would choose a foreign film for the main awards, but good on them for making the correct choice IMO. I was surprised.

    I watch tons of Korean movies, as some of you may be aware, but my wife hates horror movies so I ended up missing the above two (I've seen Audition tho).

    Many people are familiar with a select few movies from Korea but honestly, the commercial movie scene in Korea is huge and full of quality. The drama scene is evolving from its melodramatic roots as well.

    Welp, looking back after the fact, I didn't do too bad placing Parasite 3rd.. 1917 probably didn't have enough acting and The Irishman was more or less Casino 2.0 for Scorsese and the Academy was probably looking for something more fresh... good to see them being more progressive in that way.

    I enjoyed it.. a great night for Korean cinema, Asian cinema, World's cinema...
