Crazy Rich Asians

This is a feel good episode, ya'll! We've got comedian Jenny Yang on the program to talk about Crazy Rich Asians. She is uniquely qualified to discuss this film because she has seen it FIVE TIMES! This episode also signals the return of "The King of Christmas" - Alonso Duralde. He has traveled to the east coast and back to regale the crew of tales from his journey and his love for lobster. Ricky pours one out for the death of "Hiatus Ricky" as he goes back to work on Tosh.0. Plus, the gang goes over some of the most atrocious examples of whitewashing in movies - from Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell to Emma Stone in Aloha. And as always, we've got Staff Picks.

In news, Michael Caine reveals the ending to Inception, Kevin Spacey's Billionaire Boys Club makes $618 in its opening weekend, Boots Riley has some thoughts on BlacKkKlansman, and Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder may be married.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - 1). Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2). Cop Land
Alonso - In the Mood for Love
Jenny - To All the Boys I've Loved Before

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

It's Friday and we are hot, fresh, sexy, and cool with this episode, bbs! James bring to discussion the new SciFi Natalie Portman thriller, Annihilation directed by Alex Garland (of Ex Machina fame)... are we sensing a little...Whitewashing?! Double N and Lil J discuss the lack of representation for Asian American woman in film, drafts of manuscripts, Tessa and Gina, and James' love for Natalie Portman. Moving forward to the Korners- James continues the Hollywood trend by discussing the movie, Detroit directed by Kathryn Bigelow, is it FUBU aka For Us By Us? They chat about the 1960s riots- how many there actually were. It will surprise you. In Nnekay's Korner- she wants to give an update on the power outage in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria on September 20th. How many people are still out power, who is in charge of fixing the crisis, and what can we do about it.

The Wonder Twins of Podcasting are starting off with a bang, pitching a new movie... The Emperess' New Wig! Coming soon to a theater near you! They also have a little trip down memory land to the 2000s. Nnekay also discusses her underwear choices... and James extols the beauty of jock straps. Nnekay talks about the her turn as the cheesiest audience member for Yan Can Cook. Also Whoops! We made a mistake Ed Skerin was the bad guy in Deadpol. James talks about meeting the legend...Dolores Huerta who might be side eyeing us. WHAT? In Nnekay's Korner she covers some of the ways that you can contribute still to Houston. This was recorded before Irma hit, so be sure to listen to the top of the show where we cover how you can help with Irma relief as well. Links are included in these show notes. Help is needed further than just the first few weeks. In James' Korner we got the return of Quizlet Korner! Some of the topics he covers: Harriet Tubman and the 20 dolla bill, Star Wars and Asian Stars, Todrick Hall, KKK, The Democratic Party, and Bisexual Discrimination. We are still aiming for that goal for 100 reviews by our 100th episode for the Minority Korner Give away! So please write those reviews!!!!
