"Hot off. The twitter press kathy park hung author of minor feelings was included in time magazines. One hundred most influential people of twenty twenty one and There was like a feature written by ali. Wong a comedian who you might recognize from a always be my. Maybe the netflix film. Would randall park. But yeah like. This is the first time i've seen like an asian poet be featured on the one hundred most influential people list. It's usually like politicians or celebrities. So i was pretty impressed by that but at the same time minor feelings was like an extraordinary book especially during like the the early hate crimes against like asian americans during pandemic so. Yeah i could see why she was nominated and it's really cool to see her on the cover of time magazine because They they did like a cover for each person. Wow congrats to kathy. That's pretty quiet. I've seen the cover circulate through social media. So her book was always top of mind whenever whenever something should happen than we were like here. Read these books to extend the asian experience more. It's good to see her get recognition for for writing such a important not only for asians to read the public in general. I mean it really sucks when the responsibility of educating others about why your existence matters Shouldered upon us so. It's nice to have a book where you could just hand people being like. Hey read the your spare time because you know. I don't have the energy to educate you but if you guys are interested in hearing our thoughts about minor feelings we did do an episode on it. Minor feelings was a previous book club. Pick so check out that episode. Right so marvin. What's our next piece of news or we have a couple adaptation news this one from the hollywood reporter. Ace max won the rights to adopt the best added by malik pinch holy artistically and mc debut novel about rahul kapor a gate in the american teenager dealing with seventh grade crushes anxiety in small town in the and s he and his family seek to become the best version of themselves so mathematically is best known as the assistant to i think he was jacked army. He's the assistant on thirty rock. You can currently be the only murders in the building and also voice acting in disney. Junior spirit wrote detective. The half hour comedy will be written alongside michael golomb co who is the co writer of always be my maybe and used to work on grim as produced as part of imminent collision which is the production company. Started by michael. I'm coho and randall park So a lot of as america's entertainment Behind this project. And it's been digging a lot of these. Like asian americans coming of age high school shows and it's nice to have more queer representation with south asians on television and also in books I mean it's interesting because this is a middle grade novel but hbo. Max is adopting hp. Hbo's not really well known for a kid friendly contents. I'm really curious if they're going to age this up or amis. Hbo has sesame street right. Wasn't it owned by pbs. Before it was brought kazuki bs. But yeah 'cause sesame street has been an hbo series last few years. So she'll definitely has like a branding challenge when it comes to kids stuff. But it's not like having the kids before so i i think that makes sense. What's your next door so our next piece of book news is deadline. Derek sang oscar-nominated. Hong kong director of better days has signed on to help netflix series to help. Depth lexus-series adaptation of lucia. Schenn's sifi trilogy. The three body problem which was a former books and boba book club. Pick a game of thrones alumni. David benef- db weiss serve as show runners and executive producers under their overall. Deal with netflix flakes. Alexander woo hoo co created the series. With the game of thrones duo will serve as executive producer and writer. Good to fricken know that there is an asian who is going to be a producer and writer on the show. Because i have a bone to pick with. Dnd for what they did. Where game of thrones and just like how they wanted to make a series based on the confederate see as their follow up show like i have in putting my trust and alexander woo here but i feel like in weiss have definitely worn out there goodwill especially with those last two seasons of game of thrones hearing that they were involved are kinda winced little bit because the three body problem is such a chinese movie not just chinese but modern chinese story and the fact that they're not just executive producers no runners which means their their head writers pretty much. Yeah we're running their writing room. And i'd be curious to see who else in the writer's room. I'm curious to see what this adaptation is because like on two fronts right number one is. The bomb is not a simple story totally like up. Its own but hard scifi to have a lot of like concepts that they need to communicate That is a challenge for any any filmmaker director. Right and number two is again. It's such a chinese store. Like what are they going to. How are they going to adopt. Are they reset it. In america or the they have a hong kong director they have. Derek sang. Who is going to be directing the series. And you have someone who is. Asian of alexander is chinese as well. But i'm guessing that he is. You have at least two chinese people who are in very big roles for this adaptation. But like i said having dnd as show runners show runners having the most like amount of power. When it comes to creating the show. I don't know. I have doubts. Hopefully they hire more onto the project. I think that will be there make-or-break. I feel like there needs to be these to be very naive. I used to have a lot of chinese voice. And he's a lot of chinese people and not just like chinese americans like chinese people who understand chinese history and like modern society. There will be interesting because a big part of the story is about the repercussions of the cultural revolution. Which is a taboo topic in china. And it's an interesting time for this project. Go into production because of stuff. That's happened in china right now. But that's neither here nor there We'll we'll learn more about this project as it goes along but Yeah i think. I'm cautiously neutral.

"Or history or america whatever's trying to do that and it's so difficult because you know why people had to certain or the dominant culture had a certain image or gaze of of people of color are are women or queer people and now we are trying to undo all of that and that's like a chore in itself right. Yes so it's because you're asking people to take accountability for something which when you have to kick accountability. There is an admission of. I made a mistake. And i think even asking people who have now hate be proven wrong a feeling for anybody with yes was like. It's not like this whole like well. That wasn't Asi this even the frame of my on my own myself even in my own personal universally a lot of asian americans like nobody likes to be like. Oh i fucked up like i was ignorant and that was not correct in my bad. That statement is only just now becoming like a more praise. I the i always praise it but i am hearing it. I feel a little bit more now from people. 'cause we're we're working on like liberating each other from like look. I'm not gonna kill you if you made a mistake but you like ric you like pushing back like you didn't do anything wrong as the issue right now and if you just said like my bad like own that then can squash in a move on. But like in certain. I think generational and in certain positions especially of power where you are asking people to relinquish that until like give that sacrifice it to this thing that they don't believe is worth it. Yeah it's gonna be like pulling teeth. They won't do that. No they're not gonna give you a millimeter of that because there was like i do nothing wrong. I got my attention to offend anybody. This is a business in all these different excuses in justification rationalization of inappropriate racist sexist. Whatever homophobic all these different things baiter. You know you know. I think accountability is hard for hollywood and again. Is this industry that overlooked so many things like the especially with the treatment of women treatment of the black community or the asian community. Whoever is like they were few. It's like it's kind of goes back to the history books in america. You know deleted A race a lot of things and they curated. What's we should watch and what we should what we what kinda history we should know. Thank you know. Like thanksgiving is like a total. Sham is total bullshit and we got taught that in elementary school while certain You know a certain generation of us got hot that michael of in using the pilgrims you know they were friends and whatever and like no. That didn't okay. The thing is like the who's shaping that near which is why it comes back to like the impact that your work has or that had the impact that it had has the ability to have. Because you're giving light you are shining a light on topics narratives people perspectives projects. That quite frankly if you didn't choose to do that and it sucks that were in that position and we have been historically that's changing now and i'm curious what your perspective is on how much that's legit changing. Because again if somebody hadn't been efforting and putting care into that it would just say completely in the dark right like nobody else is going to give it the same level of care research the same level of nuance and an empathy to these narratives. If you wouldn't right so thank you again. I'm am curious you how that how you've seen that change in the years that you've been doing specifically in this one where the things that you're covering are the things that are further going out into the universe to influence the masses right like they are. Those are the things that eventually like. I'm out north carolina with my cousins. Who grew up in alabama. And now they're out in charlotte and like they're talking about kim's convenience me it's like you know we we like we've been around the production but to them it's like it's changing the way people around them look at them. How does that feel like. How do you see that change. I mean i think. I i wanted i do want to say like i. I'll be honest. i'll be one hundred percent honest. I just don't think traditional newsrooms are going to change i i you know. They think it's the same reason. Why i think a lot of studios in networks. Won't i mean they'll they'll change a little bit but they're not gonna have a drastic change to where you know equity is reached rhyme but i do think some of the more newer publications or just i think that's why i started diasporas because i was like all in order for things to change we have to build. We can't can't for like a letter word. Lake enter a space and try to change everything on her own. Because i think that's what a lot of diversity hires are is like all we put this person in the space. Everything's okay they're gonna change everything they're gonna teach everyone no. It is not a diverse talent to teach everyone about diversity. You know that's not the way to go. I think what the way to go is to kind of in this way. Look at things through an abolitionist lens. And just start our own shit muck at array look at a macro look at eighty eight look at imminent collision that you know hugh ho and randall park and michael golomb co started all these production companies are building things to help support certain communities I do see kind of like netflix and amazon doing their part because they're more they're newer. They're not like the og studios like warner brothers or paramount or or or disney. But i you know. I appreciate all the work. Those students are doing however i think at the end of the day..

"Check that out and my website, quips dot net today. I'm going to be looking at a film. That's currently playing on Netflix. Pretty much made for that platform. It's called always be my maybe it's a film that stars Randall park in Allie. Wong, PG thirteen rated film does have sexual content drug use, and drug references and language Runtime is an hour and forty minutes. James Saito, Michelle Bhutto. Vivian bang, Kiana Reeves. Yes. In a small role here in the film, Daniel day. Kim, and others are in the film directors and the notchback Khan and the screenplay. Credited to Michael Golomb co Randall park, and Allie Wong now, not con here, a first time feature director scoring very nicely in her feature. Derek to'real duty debut. She's known in the industry, because she's made a few notable. Production efforts on television, including the hit fresh off the boat for ABC now she gets a chance to get in the director's chair for always be my maybe an title is a play off of that Mariah. Carey hit called always be my baby, of course appears in the end credits of the film con. Here's reuniting with one of the stars of her TV show fresh off the boat. Randall park, the movies debuting on Netflix. It does play more like a laid back version of a movie. That's currently out in theaters. And when I reviewed a few episodes ago called longshot this one has less emphasis on the raunchy humor of longshot, and more of an eye toward a blend of rom com with sitcom fare, both films, always be my maybe in long longshot feature successful whim. Who've soared to the top of their professions, and becoming major recognized figures around the country. However, they find themselves attracted, two ordinary guys who never grew up from their old days as teenagers, and with whom they still find an irresistible connection, because they are people who understand where they came from in this world, that only knows them for their public personas now the main premise of always be. My maybe is that to childhood friends, Sasha Tron play by Eliane and Marcus camp, lay by Randall park as teenagers the end up consummating their time growing up together as Asian American teens in San Francisco. They ended up having their first sexual experience together in the back of his car, and then they find that their friendship has become pretty awkward after going beyond their friend zone soon these besties drift apart. They lose connection as they progress throughout adulthood, with Sasha hitting the big time by becoming one of the most successful celebrity chefs based in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Marcus is working by day. In his father's small scale each vac company, and at night, performing at the same dive bar, frequently with the hip hop group, that he's been in since he was a teenager. The hip hop group in this movie is dubbed. Hello peril. That's kind of a playoff of yellow peril, which is this old historical term that stems from the fear of East Asians, taking over the west kind of punny in joke there, Sasha ends up going to the opening of one of her new posh restaurants? That is going to be based in San Francisco. And then she ends up getting reacquainted with her old friend, Marcus, and find him exactly in the same place driving the same car doing all the same things after all of these years while she's become a setting millionaire, who really is almost unrecognisable from where she came from neither can't stand each other's lives, but they seem to enjoy each other's company for the time being with both stuck in relationships that may or may not lead anywhere. And there's a maybe that develops between them even though it seems their different lifestyles can never coexist. Without at least one of them giving in completely now we can see where this film is going. Of course. I mean, one of the most common stories that's pushed forward in the world of romance romantic comedies, especially is that the one that you're looking for me actually be hiding in plain sight. And that someone who can be your best friend is much more filling than someone who's exciting and great in bed when Harry met Sally is, perhaps, the app, dissed example of the template that this film injects itself into that's not going to rise, many fans of stand up comedian alley Wong. She stated several years before that she had a desire to make her own version of, when Harry met Sally in that prompted a lot of fervor among her fans and industry professionals to see that, that project actually gets made and here it is. However, there's enough within always be my maybe which is co written with writing by the to lead performers who are actually longtime friends in real life. They've known each other in comedy circles since the late nineteen nineties, there's enough here to feel fresh. And unique on its own because of what they inject into their own characters in this case, it's really about two people who end up growing up in the same environment, having different outcomes, one, lives a life that is completely foreign to anything that she had once known she loses her ability to find contentment because of that the other meanwhile, clings so much to his life to his neighborhood to his friends to his family that it might actually be keeping a back on happiness, just as well. Now, a lot of the humor, and the allusions within always be my maybe are predominantly west coast. The music here that's being performed or alluded to the hipster wardrobe for people on the west coast. You know, they joke that they pay exorbitantly for closed at looked like they were just taking off of a homeless person though. Ridiculous links at restaurants, go to give their customers to most unique experience possible. Each one of these restaurants, tried to one up each other to the point where you're Harley getting food anymore presentation is far. More important than actually saving when hunger, for example. A funny scene in which one restaurant gives you headphone. So you can hear the recording of the actual cow that you're about to consume to give you time and the ability to contemplate the circle of life as you're consuming the on your plate. There are a lot of other funny little touches within the course of this movie that keep it very funny and very fresh, now always be. My maybe is, I would say funnier than it is a romantic film. I do think that does exceed at being romantic still because it gives us enjoyable invulnerable characters. And we ended up coming to like enough to be content with them perhaps finding away to work it out by the end there. Also a genuine quality to the character touches that can only come from someone who's lived the life that the two leads find the connection to with plenty of little details about music and movies and Asian American culture that they perceived growing up that propels some of the authentic within this film, the movies, not completely realistic. I mean, the plot itself is not particularly original or plaza. Zabol especially in some of wildly eccentric things that ended up happening in some of these characters are very idealized. However, I do think it's still has a mouth voice underneath the obvious attempts at comedy. In addition to the two very endearingly performances, I would say they supporting cast is also strong Vivian bang here. She's wearing dreadlocks. She's real scene. Stealer. As Marcus as eccentric, free spirited girlfriend, named Jenny just when you think she's the scene stealer of the film make way an even bigger one comes with the appearance of Kiana Reeves. He's playing this very Daffy jerk face version of himself. He elevates, the persona that has been created by his fans who somehow envision Kiana Reeves, has this man, very deep thought mixed with macho bravado in this film Reeves plays up on that notion. But he still a man like many others who become successful. Caught up by his own celebrity embracing the absurdness of the increasingly upscale lifestyles. Now there's wit here charisma there. Are those few unexpected comedic turns here as well? I think always be my maybe does successfully avoid sinking into the morass, so many other rom coms, do the tropes, that we've seen all before they're here, but thanks to a game, cast and clever writing and some funny and very catchy. Original bay area style rap songs in the mix. I mean, there's even one I think if you get to the credits worth sticking around through the beginning of the credits to hear the lyrics to the completion, because it ties in very much to the rest of the story, and is a nice way to end this film, the fresh writing comedic performances are the keys to making this film, work con nose just enough to just let it happen to film it to try not to do too much as a director to distract from the performances that are delivering all of the goods in front of the camera, and perhaps due to contact spirits. The film does feel like it was shot as a made for TV production. It doesn't really have that film quality to it. But given that it's made for Netflix. On a modest budget. I do think that it's not entirely a bad thing that the film isn't really shot to look best for a big screen showing it knows it's going to be playing on televisions across the country and world. And that's very unlike the fancy schmancy restaurants that are depicted within the film. I mean this one's not trying to, wow, you with its presentation so much as it is trying to deliver a familiar and satisfying meal, set any comfortable setting so for that I'm going to give always be my maybe three stars out of four three stars on my scale means that I do recommend it for people who, like this kind of movie if you're a rom com, fancy certainly, you're probably gonna find enough within this film to be entertained, certainly, for those people like representation, Asian-American stories. There's obviously a lot of that here and certainly a lot of the jokes within this film target people who grown up in Asian American families, and in Asian American communities. So certainly, there are people who will shade it on that level as well. So three stars out of four four always be my maybe on net. Flex. Now. Thanks. Everyone.
