For everyone who is just now being introduced to Korean films through Parasite, check out “I Saw the Devil” and “New World”!

Nowhere to get it in Canada?
I assume it will show up on iTunes Canada in the next couple days. It was up for pre-order even yesterday, then just ghosted. Might be some legal/rights oversight holding it back, there's no reason it shouldn't be out here today too. I've never seen this happen before.

>buying digital when for two more dollars you can get it physically with much better audio and visual quality

It lived up to the hype and more imo, absolutely incredible film.
In and of itself - it's incredible. When I learned about the behind the scenes production of the film - I was blown away.

Nearly everything in the film is a set-including the street and basement where they live, so that they could film the entire street being flooded.

I think More_Badass was dropping factoids like that in the main thread and it blew my mind.

Thanks for the PSA. I desperately wanted to watch it during the theatrical run but my friend never was available when I was so we never saw it. Been waiting for months for this lol

Okay what the hell?

I’ve had this preordered on iTunes Canada for weeks now and for the longest time I kept checking back for an “expected by” date, but now it’s not showing up in the store at all?!

Was I billed for it??

Yes, I've done this a bunch of times on Vudu and (in addition to the digital copy that is available immediately in my library) I've gotten sealed blu-rays with another code slip inside. So it's like a triple win lol.
Yea I know that can happen, but it depends on if the Blu-ray itself comes with that code. Some don’t, especially foreign movies. Good to know this does tho!

Watch this ASAP if you haven't, and don't read a thing about it. Don't Google it either.

Trust me, go in blind.

It was good, but I liked Shoplifters two years ago a bit better, which it shares some similarities with.

Sounds good and I'd like to purchase this, but it's not really a movie purchase unless I can put it on my media server and play it on my Kodi HTPC and tablet, at any time I want without an Internet connection. So if anyone knows where I can actually purchase the movie, let me know.

Missed it in theatres but told a friend he should setup a viewing at his place since he's got a very nice setup. He said it was his favorite movie of last year, and I love Bong Joon Ho so I'm excited.

My favorite movie of 2019. Since there's no 4K, I'm tempted on getting the digital.

It's too bad the blu-ray or DVD don't have Spanish subtitles as my parent's English is limited. May have to import it for them.

Is a crime against humanity if Parasite did not win best picture at the Oscar. The cinematography, the comedy, the horror and the soundtrack are amazing. But the most important thing about Parasite is that it's an entertaining movie without a dull moment since the pacing is just perfect.

Parasite is now up on Canadian iTunes! Pretty sure it's a bit cheaper too, it costs $14.99 but was up for pre-order at $17.99
