always be my maybe trailer

Ali Wong might be a genius. Not only is she being romanced by Randall Park in the upcoming Netflix rom-com Always Be My Maybe, but she has multiple suitors played by Daniel Dae Kim and, surprise, Keanu Reeves. A wild John Wick appeared in the new trailer for Always By My Maybe, looking fresh in a crushed velvet jacket and some hipster specs. Watch the new Always Be My Maybe trailer to receive the best gift for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

The Sun is Also a Star Review

Educational value of its title aside, The Sun Is Also a Star is a fairly limp romantic drama that attempts (and fails) to tie its core relationship to The Way We Live Now. It might seem glib to look at this movie, in which two strangers meet by happenstance and fall in love while spending the day together in a big city, as Before Sunrise for the YA set. But then, the way this film leans on how U.S. immigration policies are actively cruel towards so many people who want to emigrate to the States is in and of itself glib, especially because it feels like an unnecessary crutch to a sappy coupling.

plus one review

Thirty years ago, When Harry Met Sally posed the question: Can men and women really be friends? While it never quite provided an answer, it did prove one satisfying thing — friendship may be forever, but watching friends fall in love is timeless.

Plus One, which follows two jaded college buddies Ben and Alice (Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine) who make a pact to be each other’s plus ones during a summer of endless weddings, pays appropriate homage to its lauded predecessor, but takes that delightful push-pull dynamic that When Harry Met Sally perfected to another level. Pen15 writers Jeff Chan and Andrew Rhymer unite with Erskine, the star and co-creator of the acclaimed Hulu series, to make their feature debut with this sharp, raunchy, and altogether winning film that is poised to be the rom-com of the summer.

Aladdin Clip

Even though most Disney fans are probably much more excited about the prospect of The Lion King remake coming to theaters later this summer, one of the other studio’s remakes of an animated classic is arriving first.

Aladdin takes the beloved 1992 animated fantasy romance and brings it into the live-action word with newcomer Mena Massoud playing the titular street urchin who wants nothing more than to marry the beautiful princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott of Power Rangers). But he’ll need the help of the cool, blue genie (Will Smith) and maybe some luck to make it happen. Thankfully, things seem to be going his way in a new Aladdin clip that kicks off one of the most famous scenes from the original movie. Read More »

crshd review

Emojis and Tinder are the order of the day in CRSHD, an ode to millennial romance that juggles silliness and sincerity, though it occasionally drops the ball. Written and directed by Emily Cohn, the romantic-comedy follows a familiar formula: a group of close girlfriends vow to find love, especially for the ditzy protagonist who wants to lose her virginity before summer break, and find themselves getting into a series of hijinks over the course of one wild, booze-filled night.

But first-time feature director Cohn displays an intimate understanding of the inner workings of the college girl’s mind, helping to elevate CRSHD from the stale trappings of the genre and preventing it from taking on the patronizing tone that so many millennial comedies have adopted. The result is a charming coming-of-age comedy that manages to communicate a sweet message about friendship despite sometimes being buried by a visual barrage of texts and predictable plot conceits.

Warm Bodies TV Series

Remember Warm Bodies? It was the original zomcom, focusing on Nichols Hoult as a zombie known only as “R,” who is slowly becoming more self-aware and less undead-like. When he encounters a living girl (Teresa Palmer) from a nearby group of survivors, she’s the only one who sees that some of the zombies seem to be turning less monstrous as time goes on. Now the unique horror romantic comedy will get a TV series adaptation from Lionsgate. Read More »
