I remember first seeing this remake of Star Trek and being in awe of it. I was a fan of the original series so I wasn't sure how the new Star Trek would pan out. It was also the time when J. J. Abrams was starting to make bigger budget movies so we didn't know what he was capable of.
I don't remember there being a ton of content to make a movie about when I remember the kids book "The Cat in the Hat" by Dr. Seuss. I guess I was wrong. They made a full kids movie about of this book back in 2003. They haven't seemed to stop making movie adaptations of Dr. Seuss books since then so they must be doing something right?
I didn't think much of Ferdinand when I first saw the promo for the movie. It didn't really speak to me as it was supposed to be about a bull in Spain. There wasn't too much advertising for the movie so it also seemed to be a pretty low budget animated film.
When Masterminds first came out in 2016, I wasn't exactly really excited to watch it. The story was kind of interesting but I've always been kind of 50/50 with Zach Galifianakis comedies. Sometimes I get his humor and I'll find his comedy to be hilarious but other times I can find him rather annoying and totally miss out on the jokes. It's not really his fault, he's been consistent I've just always been off and on with his type of humor.
I have to admit, I haven't heard of Ronny Chieng before this comedy special. In fact, I don't think I know too many Asian comedians in general. The handful of Asian comedians that I have heard of I kind of steer clear with the exception of Ali Wong, Russell Peters (back in the day) and Aziz Ansari. This is particularly weird because I am Asian so you'd think I would gravitate to Asian comedians.
I remember watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer back when I was a kid in the 1980s. I was in awe of the stop motion animation that they did for the movie. I loved the story. It also always played every Christmas season so I wasn't sure if this was a Stockholm Syndrome kind of thing where I loved it because it just played all the time and I didn't have much choice in the matter.
