    Chen, I don't recall any topics made by you before. Clearly, the universe wanted to bequeathe this opportunity upon you.

    Eh, it's a few seconds of a camera test, I'm not going to judge it on this. These days, people seem to judge an entire score on twenty second snippets.

    John reacted to KK in Rotten Tomatoes fans crown The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King the best of the Best Picture winners   
    Is it the greatest film ever made? No. But it probably remains my favourite, even if at a more emotional level. It's a film that's played a fundamental role in my formative years and has come to define my love and music in the years to follow in a way that only the very best of films can. So this seems like as fair a choice as any for this absurd title.

    It needs a firmware update again, the "blending in" module is getting rusty.

    It's amusing that now we can say with 100% certainty that John Williams has seen Eminem perform live.

    I dont get the buzz for Parasite. I have seen it and it is nothing special tbh. I dont know, is it because Hollywood hasnt seen a kind of social juxtaposition thats being presented in the movie or not? ( because i live in SE Asia and those kind of social disparity is our daily consumption; further proof those Hollywood liberals , as per Ricky Gervais said, is out of touch of the real world)
     
    One thing for sure, Oscar and other awards, onward, will prefer to bestow an award for POLITICALLY CORRECT movie, not because of one’s merits ( oscar be like: “hey i give South Korean’s movie the top prize, am i not diverse enough?, this is yuge, this has never been done before!”)
     
    Well i know the underlying message of this political practice is good ( about representation, about how everyone, no matter their race and creed, can also succeed, etc etc), but it is sad nonentheless
     
    oh well,..

    Well, tbh ,Parasite itself is not movie made for politically correct reason. Director's previous movies Okja, Snowpiercer etc also deal with the same issue, so in that case. lets assume its labor of love/ trademark for the director to do these kind of movies. But IMO, in the end, Parasite is not that special of a movie. It's the practice of AMPAS members awarding a movie based on political reasons that i hate.
     
    The Irishman, 1917, Once Upon, Marriage, are movies stem form director's passion and not made for political reasons, and they are also a better movie.
     
    But dont tell the Academy, because they prefer to pat themselves in the back like a good boy they are.

    Parasite is easily the most deserving best picture nomination in years. I love that it won.

    John himself probably would have wanted someone younger/newer to win. It would have been cool to us for Johnny to win, but I'm sure he'd want someone relatively unknown to have this opportunity, and to be recognized for their work.
