‘Crazy Rich Asians’ delivers joy

There's a mixture of excitement and trepidation that one experiences right before watching the film adaptation of a book they love. It's a feeling of ownership and protectiveness, of high expectations and of course, that risk of disappointment. With "Crazy Rich Asians," which opens in cinemas on Aug. 22, that feeling is amplified by reverberating declarations of the movie's cultural importance. Yes, we've heard it over and over: it's the first non-period film with an all Asian or Asian-American cast since "The Joy Luck Club." It's breaking barriers. It could change Hollywood. There is so much resting on its glitzy shoulders. Kevin Kwan, who wrote the 2013 bestseller and is e...Keep on reading: ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ delivers joy.....»»

Eight ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ moments we loved

(READ: 'Crazy Rich Asians' brings joy) That wedding scene. God, that wedding scene. We haven't seen anything like it. Unlike in the book, the Vienna Boys Choir didn't make an appearance, but that didn't matter. We won't spoil it for you. But here's a clue: Sonoya Mizuno as bride Araminta had to wear a waterproof wedding dress for it. Director Jon M. Chu is right---it was magical. The food shots. Food always gets the spotlight in Kevin's books and it's no different in the movie. "Jon Chu said to me, if people don't leave my movie hungry, I will have failed. There's gonna be so much food porn and so much fashion porn," said Kevin. Here's a tip: enjoy great Asian food before headi...Keep on reading: Eight ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ moments we loved.....»»

Mourinho says Man City disrespectful in documentary

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho suggested Premier League rival Manchester City was "disrespectful" and lacking "class" in a behind-the-scenes documentary that was released this week. Amazon's eight-part documentary of City's title-winning year in the Premier League last season gave a TV crew almost unlimited access to players and managerial staff, offering insight into Pep Guardiola's locker room. "I think you can have a fantastic movie, respecting others. You don't need to be disrespectful to have a fantastic movie," Mourinho said. "You can be a rich club and buy all the best players in the world, but you cannot buy class." Speaking in an interview with British broadcaster Sky Sports, Mourinho didn't refer to any particular passage of the documentary, entitled "All or Nothing: Manchester City." In one section, midfielder Kevin De Bruyne talked about his struggles when he was at Chelsea under Mourinho. Guardiola does not think the documentary will expose his secrets. "When we accept the cameras to be inside for 24 hours a day, that kind of thing can happen," Guardiola said. "I think there was nothing special. I think the people are going to see how a football team lives behind the scenes. "The players make the tactics," he added. "Not my ideas, it's the players who make the tactics.".....»»

The classic pixie cut, as seen on iconic movie characters

The pixie is one of the most intimidating haircuts. This may be due to how society relates femininity with having long locks. Around two months ago, I finally decided to have my hair cut to the iconic style. Like most people, I was worried I'd look like a boy, but decided to push through with it---and I'm so glad I did. I don't know why, but there's something highly empowering about having my nape and shoulders exposed. Instead of beauty trends, I was actually inspired by characters from some of my favorite films. Contrary to what you might think, the pixie is very versatile and can be classy or edgy, depending on how you style it.If you're planning on getting a pixie haircut, let ...Keep on reading: The classic pixie cut, as seen on iconic movie characters.....»»
