Miles Teller on Jimmy Fallon

Miles Teller could possibly be one of my favorite new actors. I mean he’s not that new, actually, but I enjoy him in almost everything that he’s in. I’m still waiting to see Whiplash though and I heard he did a pretty good job in it!¬†Also this appearance on Jimmy Fallon is golden.

In Case You Missed It… Zoolander 2

As we all know, our favorite models Derek and Hansel walked the Valentino runway earlier this week and it wasn’t just a random decision. They are, in fact, making a Zoolander sequel and this was the most perfect way for them to reveal the news. Zoolander 2 is slated to be released February 12, 2016. Can you believe that it will have been 15 years since the first movie was released? I’m so curious now about what my 11-year-old self thought about that film.

And what! They also got to meet Anna Wintour. They really went all out for publicity.

Next Season on The Bachelorette…

25 men will go on dates with both Kaitlyn AND Britt! For the first time ever in Bachelor/Bachelorette history, there will be two bachelorettes and they pretty much were the babes of last season’s The Bachelor. In the beginning of the season, Britt was the frontrunner for The Bachelor, but seeing Kaitlyn get as far as she did, others were convinced that she would be the next Bachelorette. Tough choice, but having both of them will definitely make up for some entertainment.

Apparently the guys will go after both of them and ultimately decide who they think will make the better wife. Will there be one of them left standing? Will both of them go after the same guy? Will Britt and Kaitlyn each have a rose to give out at the very end? So many questions about logistics. We’re looking forward to May 18th when the next season starts!

Eddie Huang for TIME Magazine

I have to admit that when I first heard about Fresh Off the Boat becoming a television series on ABC, I wanted to boycott the show. I had seen the commercials for it and the acting sometimes made me cringe, but it wasn’t until Kevin told me that he was entirely caught up on the series that I thought it deserved a shot. How quickly I changed my tune…

I was afraid that by others watching the show that Asian Americans would be faced with those confirmations about our stereotypes or that everyone would immediately assume that my childhood was exactly like Eddie’s which was going to be portrayed negatively. In fact, my childhood and my brother’s was a lot like Eddie’s and it wasn’t portrayed negatively. I am now a fan of the show and I think it does something great for Asian Americans. It gives us something to relate to because I can guarantee you growing up, I never felt like anyone could really relate to me in this sense.

Fifty Shades of Grey: Yeah, We Watched It

Oh yes, you better believe that we caught this movie on opening weekend. Having never read the books and being very curious about the advertisements I’ve been seeing for the film, I just had to see it. So here are my thoughts:

  • The movie didn’t flow as well as I would’ve liked. Everything felt really choppy, but I hear it’s not like this in the books.
  • They made Seattle look gooooooooooood.
  • This is not a movie that you want to take your kids to. I was appalled to see children sitting a couple rows in front of me.
  • Is it just me or did it feel like Jamie and Dakota had absolutely no chemistry together onscreen. I mean it didn’t seem very belivable to me?
  • It’s definitely not as racy as people made it out to me.
  • Why is this version offered in imax?
  • What is it like to see the NC-17 version of this film?
  • The best part of this movie? The soundtrack. Gimme that Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd anyday.

It’s not a masterpiece by any means, but I’m glad I saw it. We got something out of our systems by doing so.
