Flick In A Limerick

A woman accompanies her boyfriend to Singapore
Upon arrival she finds out that he is far from poor
Now in the spotlight
She must deal with jealousy and spite
And win the approval of his family who doesn’t want them together anymore
Shot Caller – Jon M. Chu

“So your family is very rich
My family is comfortable
That is exactly what a super rich person would say”

“So let me get this straight you both went to the same school one of you came back with a degree that is useful and the other came back an Asian Ellen”

“Chickens are bitches”

“Since I was young my family has been my entire life. I am done making excuses for them”

“I’m not leaving because I don’t think I am enough. I am leaving because for the first time in my life I know that I am enough”

“I know this is far from a hidden paradise but wherever you are in the world that is where I want to be”

The Big Finish

This is why you should cyber stalk every person you date. A basic google search could have eliminated this entire catastrophe from occurring. Crazy Rich Asians is a very ambitious project. It explores many different stereotypes of asian people in a clever manner. It is informative about asian culture and history but does not come off as too preachy. Constance Wu and Henry Golding are outstanding. Awkwifina stole the show here in her second number one movie of the year. This film hit all the rom com beats with a perfect blend of humor and courtship. An interesting aspect that I got out of this film was the banana scene. Yellow on the outside, white on the inside. As an african american the term oreo and other slurs are constantly thrown around unceremoniously for any black person who may seem too educated or not involved in our culture. I thought it was very intriguing to have this concept explored in another race from their perspective. I am glad to see this film doing so well and want to see more like it. Diversity in Hollywood is definitely all the rage right about now and movies such as Crazy Rich Asians are pivotal in helping to push the doors down.
