Shadow Netflix (Chinese)

 We sit down and binged watched a few Asian films after seeing the movie Parasite and this Chinese epic piece showed up on my radar for suggestions on Netflix.  A secret plot with an ongoing war between two kingdoms comes to a head when one empire decide to use deception to gain power of the other with a hidden secret within their own camp.

This was odd. I decided to sit down and watch the 36 chambers of Shaolin series because the Wu Tang clan is out with their documentary. So to get a feel of what they based their group premise on. I sat and watched these movies in order.

  • The 36th Chamber of Shaolin

  • Return to the 36th chamber

  • Disciples of the 36th Chamber

  • Shaolin vs. Wu tang

Accident (Hong Kong)

My next asian film comes from Hong Kong which centers on a hit man with some unique abilities,  This assassin has a crew that creates accidents for their victims so that people would not be able to track any particular person.  The catch to this story is what happens when the creator becomes the victim?  This is where this story goes.  We watch and see if he is right or is this another creation that backfires in his own mind.

Chaz and I semi look back at the year of doing adult things, being responsible and preparing for the future. Now that the holiday seasons upon us. The anxiety of not having fun and doing things other than being an adult has become frustrating. What can a single millennial do when stagnant life becomes boring. Also a short review of Black Friday and impulse buying.

Crazy Rich Asians

This was the movie Alicia and I were pretty excited about. Since I make her watch all the asian cinema movies and anime with me.  We saw this as something amazing to highlight a culture that isn't recognized on that level in the United states.  The Asian Black Panther with out the superhero outfit and the Marvel logo.  What a very entertaining movie.

Rachel Chu is happy to accompany her longtime boyfriend, Nick, to his best friend's wedding in Singapore. She's also surprised to learn that Nick's family is extremely wealthy and he's considered one of the country's most eligible bachelors. Thrust into the spotlight, Rachel must now contend with jealous socialites, quirky relatives and something far, far worse -- Nick's disapproving mother

The team returns and jumps on the dumb but controversial policy of trade tariffs and the American workers.  And for some reason, we can not get off criticizing the democratic party and how there is no strategy, message or candidate that will make any of us feel theres a chance. Sigh!!
