the results of the 2020 iowa caucus were delayed considerably for the democratic party. the delay is being largely blamed on reporting and coding problems with the new smartphone app that is being used to collect results.
in the face of harsh criticism for the issue-riddled caucus, iowa democratic party communications director mandy mcclure shared the following update late monday night: “we found inconsistencies in the reporting of three sets of results. in addition to the tech systems being used to tabulate results, we are also using photos of results and a paper trail to validate that all results match and ensure that we have confidence and accuracy in the numbers we report. this is simply a reporting issue, the app did not go down and this is not a hack or an intrusion. the underlying data and paper trail is sound and will simply take time to further report the results.”
i think parasite was the best movie of the year for a few reasons (no spoilers included). first of all, it was a completely original story. it wasn't a remake or a prequel or a sequel, which pretty much everything is these days. secondly, it was a foreign film that didn't have any big name american actors to draw a crowd. the movie got buzz based on word of mouth alone. the script and the acting were both extremely well done and it also had several plot twists. it was a very unpredictable movie that made watching it very suspenseful and exciting. it also managed to tell a very enthralling story without the use of special effects or cgi. the movie was entertaining purely for the dialogue, story, and character development. it was over 2 hours but did not have a ton of "filler"; it was well paced and never dragged. finally, i thought it had a very satisfactory ending, which many movies do not. many films start strong but tend to lose momentum along the way and don't have a solid finish. this movie really had it all and i hope it wins best picture!
