Excellent movie and one of last year's finest films.

Subtitles movies are Oscar bait through and through. Is this movie's story *really* this good? Just asking!! I'm not opposed to reading on the screen, but whenever possible I prefer a good dub.

Dubs are atrocious for live action though. It always looks like the audio is out of synch and the dialog is never accurate. However, yes, the story IS that good. This movie was phenomenal and had I seen it before I did my top 10 list, it would have been on there.

It's the first movie that won Best Picture in years that I thought actually deserved it. Maybe now it will get a 4K release so I can have a reason to buy it.

I feel like a lot got lost in translation with the subs, as I result I mildly enjoyed this one. I was shocked it won, didnít realize it was nominated. It was good, but no urge to ever watch it again. Joker on the other hand...

Yeah, that too, about the 4K disc. Universal seems to test the waters with a BD, but they fail to realize that in some cases, it is 4K or bust for some people. I still buy Blu-rays on some movies, but according to IMDB these are the specs:
ARRIRAW (6.5K) (source format)
Digital Intermediate (4K) (master format)

So again, 4K or bust in this case.

There is a German mediabook coming out in 4K, but does it have English subs? I doubt it.

Saw this in the store, no slipcover. But the photos online show one. Another wtf for Uni.

I, on the other hand, I have no desire to ever see Joker again. I liked it, it had a great social commentary in it, but it was a one and done for me. As for Parasite, I'd like to see it again at some point.

My local Alamo Drafthouse just did a B&W screening of the film. A shame that isn't included on the BD either.
