    Airplane!

    ★★★★

    "Airplane!" is one of the funniest films and also among the most ridiculous I have seen. The jokes come one after another with very few pauses and a lot of them incredibly lands.

Parasite’s commentary plays it safe, and the result of this safe delivery is the praise the film receives from American liberals and all the privileged and comfortable people from Hollywood and beyond. I do not aim to tear down Parasite’s general acclaim, but…
