When I was a child, my family didn’t have cable. When we wanted to watch something together, we’d pull out the DVD that sat under the television throughout my childhood, unceremoniously kept in a white paper sleeve with a handwritten title on the top: Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, one of the most popular Bollywood movies ever made.
Awkwafina and her comedic acting are some of the best parts of Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens, though the rest of the cast is equally talented, such as her grandma, played by Lori Tan Chinn (Orange is the New Black’s Mei Chang). She steals the show during all of her scenes as a clever and funny matriarch. In the second episode, she gives a big, dramatic speech to convince Nora to come to Atlantic City, crying about her friend's broken hip to eventually guilt Nora into going. "Okay, see you downstairs!" she says. "Don't embarrass me."
Dolittle begins with a lovely animated clip that quickly fleshes out a tragic backstory for Dr. Dolittle, injecting quick and underdeveloped emotion into the story. Not only that, but it quickly fridges Dr. Dolittle’s wife, Lily, establishing why he’s a sad hermit in the movie's exposition. Perhaps if Dolittle had simply been this animation about Dr. Dolittle and Lily exploring the world and rescuing animals, it might have actually been enjoyable.
In recent years, streaming services and web series have revolutionized the stories Indian content creators are able to tell. They have become not only one of the most popular forms of media amongst Indian youth, but also have finally paved the way for Western audiences to enjoy groundbreaking Indian content. Most Bollywood films, though as varied in genre and narrative as Hollywood films, are still musicals, and the overall view of the genre, as well as the Western world’s reluctance to enjoy foreign cinema, has prevented non–Indian audiences from enjoying Indian content.
Schitt’s Creek is one of those rare family sitcoms that revels in sincerity and genuine kindness. Unlike other well–known, feel–good sitcoms on television today, such as The Good Place or Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it chooses not to focus on existential philosophy or action–filled police casework. All it has are its characters, the Roses, and their small–town problems and skirmishes.
This is not an essay about climate change. It's an essay about futile existentialism—and a little bit about climate change.
Two well–known dystopian writers have come back after long hiatuses to publish additions to their most celebrated works. Both Margaret Atwood and Suzanne Collins have returned to the literary world during a time when social issues such as climate disaster and women’s rights are at the forefront of public consciousness.
The first scene you see in Netflix’s new show, Living With Yourself, is Paul Rudd clawing his way out of a grave with nothing but a diaper and a plastic bag on. It’s bizarre, kind of frightening, and vaguely off–putting—but it makes you want to keep watching.
I’ve always kept an eye out for LGBT literature when I’m choosing what book to read next, and I’m always drawn to the Young Adult section. Not only because so many LGBT novels about people my age end up in YA, but also because I am yearning for the deep romantic plot and happy endings heterosexual couples take for granted in nearly all media. Though YA is often looked down upon, especially for college students who may be pressured to read more "serious" literature, I've found many beautiful works of art in this section. These are my five favorite YA LGBT novels.
In 2012, Laika Films released ParaNorman. I remember watching it when it came out—I was eleven years old and nearly missed the throwaway line at the very end confirming that the character Mitch, a stereotypical “dumb jock,” had a boyfriend. Even at that age I recognized how novel it was for any of the characters to be in a same sex relationship. It was the first mainstream animated film featuring a gay main character.
Podcasts are one of the fastest–growing forms of media in recent years. According to a CBS News poll, two–thirds of Americans listen to podcasts, and the New York Times reports that nearly one–third do so regularly. This is a far cry from a few years ago, when podcasts were a largely niche genre.
