Review: Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

When Crazy Rich Asians came out, it was all anybody ever talked about. Every person I know has seen it. So much so that a friend had us over at his place to make dumplings. But unlike the opulent, Young family, who had an army of kitchenhands to do all the prep work, we had…

TV Review: Sex Education (2019)

I usually am wary of sex comedies because they could easily venture towards the offensive route. Sex is a tricky topic to delve into, one that requires a degree of perceptiveness.

Review: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

I was not surprised to see Guy Ritchie’s name attached to a project like this. His Sherlock Holmes movies were box office successes. And while I don’t think they were particularly memorable, they weren’t rubbish. But I admit, I had my doubts because while Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock can be easily modernized, and can easily…
