    A Filmmaker's Review: "Queen Victoria and Her Nine Children" (Netflix, 2018)

    A Filmmaker's Review: "Queen Victoria and Her Nine Children" (Netflix, 2018)

    I initially watched this documentary because of the fact it was being recommended to me so much by Netflix that I was struggling now to avoid it appearing on my homepage. I caved in and after a few days, I watched it. The show goes over the death of Prince Albert and then shows us the rather volatile reaction towards it by Queen Victoria. She goes into extravagant mourning for more than a decade and takes it out on her children. Over the course of the three episodes, we see her relationship with her children become more and more tense and strained as some manage to escape her and leave home and some are left behind to deal with her ever-growing mess of her life.

    The Half of It...A Review

    The Half of It...A Review

    Even as an Asian-American teen myself, this Netflix spin on high school identity, the structure of friendship, and the philosophy of romance came as a surprise. I braced myself for yet another cheesy take on Asian American girls as math obsessed or boy obsessed (hint hint TATBILB), and some sickly sweet and predictable ending. However, thankfully my cynicism was proved wrong, but it was still reasonable founded.

    Pop Corn and a Movie

    Pop Corn and a Movie

    Movies are a way to escape what is going on in the world and release some of the stress that can accumulate during this time of shelter in place. For me the movie takes me to another world where my mind can ascend into the characters in these well done movies. Although there are many amazing series and movies I can only bring up four of my favorite for this article. The four series that I have narrowed it down to are 1. Self Made, 2. Miraculous Ladybug, 3. Unorthodox and 4. Letters to a King. In my selection I wanted to make sure I involved all of the family.

    Never Have I Ever realised how important representation is

    Never Have I Ever realised how important representation is

    Never Have I Ever features an American high school student Devi Vishwakumar ( Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) who had a tragic first year and is trying her best to move on forward. This involved the death of her father, losing the ability to use her legs and generally becoming a social outcast with an overbearing mother breathing down her neck the whole time. She's volatile, foul-mouthed, horny, confused and emotional. So basically, a normal teenager.

    My Review of "The Half Of It"

    My Review of "The Half Of It"

    The Half Of It turned out to be a really good movie. I honestly wasn't looking forward to seeing this movie because I thought it would end up as a mere copy of the movie Roxanne (but then Roxanne was a copy of Cyrano de Bergerac). Little did I know there's a huge twist at the end that I saw coming but didn't see coming.

    The Half of It: A (Mostly Full) Experience

    The Half of It: A (Mostly Full) Experience

    Coming of age movies that center around young adults always intrigue me. They're one of my favorite genres of movies not only because of their unbelievable degree of relatability, but their capacity to tell wonderful stories about the range of emotions people can experience. Teenagers are volatile, for better or worse - they make wild decisions, try so many new things and can be very emotional, and these movies reflect that - be it the incredibly heartfelt journeys seen in movies like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, or the narratives that are intertwined with comedy, such as Superbad or Booksmart.

    My Review of "I Am Not Okay With This: Season One"

    My Review of "I Am Not Okay With This: Season One"

    I Am Not Okay With This is a Netflix exclusive TV series that I thought would explore a girl's super powers. I soon found out that this movie is actually more about the main character Syd trying to figure herself out. She has so much angst that it was very difficult to watch this season at times. The thing about this is that the show had to make her this way for the series to work. Once you get to the very end you realize that everything was done pretty intelligently.
