I’m wary of live-action adaptions of animated stuff. Sometimes, it ends up pretty well, like Speed Racer (which is a kinetic flurry of fun that, even though it is live-action, does feel in many ways as if it is still a cartoon). Sometimes you get the disaster that was The Last Airbender. It’s a tricky… Continue reading Bebop, Live!
When the synopsis for this week’s episode of Ted Lasso was released, I jumped to some wild ideas. Ted Lasso is a show about an American Football coach assigned to coach an Association Football (aka the better football) team. His hopefulness in the face of adversity is contagious, and it’s a really nice and optimistic… Continue reading Coach Beard and Ulysses
I like video games, and so, accordingly, I tend to follow video game news. As someone who does most of his gaming on his PS4 (give or take some Simsor Civilization on my computer), I was certainly invested in Sony’s PlayStation Showcase this week. There are a slew of highlights; Tchia is a game inspired… Continue reading KOTOR Remake!
I moved to South Carolina the summer I turned fifteen, after growing up in Singapore and spending four years on a ship. Unknowingly, I stepped into a paradigm where my half-Singaporean Chinese self was now firmly classified as Asian, a title that brought with it very specific expectations. I quickly learned that the best way… Continue reading Self-Hating Asians
Wow, it’s late. I’m only just writing this at around 11:30pm California time, so as long as I post this guy within the next half hour, I’m technically still on schedule. It’s been another wild week for me, one packed end-to-end with apartment viewings capped off with a lease signing and starting the hunt for… Continue reading Build/Buy
Marvel’s been doing great with their TV shows, which continues to be a wild sentence to write even after we’ve had three complete seasons of shows. WandaVision was an absolute delight that had a lot of fun with its television format, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was solid fun, even if it didn’t lean… Continue reading Cut The Exposition
Hey, Still driving across the United States; we’ve made it to Arizona and by next week these blogposts should return to your regularly scheduled nonsense. We’ve crossed the 3,000 mile mark and found the World’s Biggest Ball of Twine (which is as magical as you’d imagine). Also went stargazing in the middle of Arches National… Continue reading 2 On The 2 Road
Hey, I’m in the middle of some Pretty Big Life Stuff at the moment that has me leaving New York and engaging in a Great American Road Trip heading towards Pasadena by way of pretty much the middle of America. We’re hitting some of the big sights (The World’s Largest Ball of Twine is day… Continue reading On The Road (But Not In A Kerouac Way)
So we’re a month away from Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings coming out, a movie I’ve been eagerly waiting for since it was announced. Besides the wonderfully pulpy name, I’m excited as all get out to finally, finally have an East Asian protagonist in a major Marvel movie. As someone of East… Continue reading He Knows Kung Fu
Didja hear? There’s a new trailer for Dune out! I haven’t seen it, because I already know I’m going to watch it, and the first trailer was super dope and I’m on board because the look is right and Dennis Villeneuve is a director whose work I love and, given his three-hit-combo of Sicario, Arrival,… Continue reading Spice Flows Like Time
