10 Horror Masterpieces


Here we go with Season 3, Episode 4, "eps3.3_m3tadatapar2". We left off last episode (see recap) with a complete recap of where Tyrell Wellick has been since the Five/Nine hack. In this episode, we continue right from where Episode 2 left off when Elliot discovers Darlene's safe house. Plans are shifting and "Red Wheelbarrow" is happening very soon. We can already sense the impending doom but can Elliot save everyone including himself? Meanwhile, Darlene is coping with the fact that she may very well lose the most important person in her life, which is Elliot. Next week's episode is going to be a big one, I can feel it!

Here we go with Season 3, Episode 3, "eps3.2_legacy.so". We left off last episode (see recap) with Elliot going back to E-Corp and Darlene making a rough decision that may ruin everything. In this episode, we wholly focus on Tyrell Wellick, backtracking all the back to the night of the Five/Nine hack. Considering that Tyrell was gone all of season 2, it shows where he's been hiding and what he's been up to till present day. We also get to learn a little bit more about Irving but that also doesn't mean much because Irving is and always has been at this point, a mysterious and shady man. I love seeing how much Tyrell loves Elliot and I'm all for the Tyrelliot love!

Year: 2017
Director: Edgar Wright
Writer: Edgar Wright
Cinematography: Bill Pope
Cast: Ansel Elgort, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, Lily James,
Country of Origin: USA
Rating: R
Time: 112 mins.



Fasten your seat belt because you're in for a wild ride! Needless to say but Edgar Wright's Baby Driver is one of the hottest films to come out this summer. With it's jam-packed score, uber hot cast, and breathtaking action sequences, this is the kind of adrenaline rush you can't get enough of! After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver named Baby, finds himself taking part in a heist that is doomed to fail. 



Edgar Wright has been consistently making outrageously breathtaking films with his singularly iconic vision since day one. We all know his work from Hot Fuzz and The World's End (review) but he takes Baby Driver to a whole different level, one that taps into all our senses to have us tingling from head to toe by the end of the film, especially the heart. I've never felt so emotionally and physically energized and drained after watching a film but that's what Baby Driver will do to you! It's a spectacular feat that is drenched in intense details, fully formed characters, and a banger of a soundtrack. All hail Edgar Wright for making another outrageously grandiose film that gives other car films a run for its money.

Here we go with Season 3, Episode 2, "eps3.1_undo.g". We left off last episode (see recap) with Darlene being paranoid about the FBI and Elliot asking Angela to get him a job at Evil Corp. In this episode, Elliot goes back to his 9-5 grind at Evil Corp and figures out a solution on how to them rebuild their data and avoid Stage 2. He's doing fairly well but still his loneliness is unbearable and goes back to therapy with Krista. Meanwhile, Darlene makes a tough decision that may ruin everything for Elliot & FSociety. And to my surprise, there is shocking turn of events for Joanna Wellick. All the plans are set in motion, now we wait for it to all crash and burn. We'll see what happens next week!

It was the 5th year of Beyond Fest and it was possibly their best year yet! I've been going to BF every year and just when you think it can't get any better, it does! They really knocked it out of the park this year with Dario Argento and Jackie Chan in attendance! I was fortunate to attend the screenings of Brawl in Cell Block 99 starring Vince Vaugh, double feature of Suspiria and Opera, a triple bill of Jackie Chan films: Miracles, Supercop, & Police Story, Joe Lynch's Mayhem starring Steven Yeun, and of course, The Killing of a Sacred Deer. I don't think I've ever screamed as loudly and fanatically than when I saw Jackie Chan. He's been a real hero of mine and I was so beyond thankful and ecstatic to see him in the flesh! Thank you Beyond Fest for always letting me be a part of the biggest and baddest genre festival in LA! See ya next year!

I designated September as my catch-up month considering it's been one hectic summer! I recently shot my most lucrative short film, earlier this September called In Bloom. And because most of the month was dedicated to that shoot, I wanted to lay back and catch-up on some films and tv series I've been FOMOing on like Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2, the original 1990's It, Issa Rae's Insecure & Donald Glover's Atlanta.

I'm slowly realizing that my go-to activity for decompressing is binge-watching a tv series. There are so many incredible series out there that I've yet to watch but I'm so glad I finally got to see the two most buzzed about & award-winning shows, Insecure and Atlanta. Both deserve all the praise and views and I will for sure to tuning in season after season! What are your September favorites?

I didn't realized how much I loved Jackie Chan till I saw The Foreigner trailer. And considering that I'm seeing him in REAL LIFE at Beyond Fest, I couldn't resist doing a trailer reaction for his new film! Based on the 1992 novel, The Chinaman by Stephen Leather, the film follows Quan Ngoc Minh, a business with a buried past who seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. A cat-and-mouse conflict ensues with a government official (Pierce Brosnan), whose past may hold clues to the killers' identities.

I don't think Jackie has released a film in the United States since The Karate Kid starring Jaden Smith so naturally, I'm incredibly elated to see him in another film. While we know Jackie as the goofball action star, The Foreigner shows a darker and serious side to him and I'm loving it already! And I am not going to lie, I almost cried watching this trailer because Jackie reminds me so much of my own father. I can't wait to watch serious Jackie in action!

Every year, I like to create at least one short film just for my own sanity. So, Kristine Gerolaga and I went out to my favorite place in the city AKA Koreatown (of course), to shoot a little something something. You may have noticed that Kristine was my actress from my short last year, Blue Paradise (See here) for the YOMYOMF + Justin Lin short film competition. She also directed her own short for that called Hit or Miss and it's one of my favorite shorts (See here). While we were shooting this, we realized that this story could be a continuation of Blue Paradise. 

Blue Nights follows an an aspiring actress who leaves her mom a heartfelt voicemail during one somber night in Koreatown. I wanted to show the realities of being a struggling artist living in Los Angeles. As second generation Asian-Americans, many of us still feel obligated to comply to our parent's wishes and this film was a way to show how sometimes we have to sugarcoat our lives to them in order to keep pursuing our dreams, no matter how lonely that journey may be. I hope you enjoy.

I've been MIA all of summer (See Life Update Video) so I thought I share a cumulative favorites video of the summer! Despite being gone, I've watched many films and binged on various tv shows which you can all see in my newly made Letterboxd! I tried a free month of Film Struck and I absolutely loved it! I got to watch so many classic films that I've been meaning to watch like Lady Snowblood, Thelma and Louise, and so much more! I also went to many film events like LA Film Festival, Okja screening with Bong Joon-ho & Tarantino, and even Harry Potter @ Hollywood Bowl! & of course, tons of action films with incredible badass femmes kicking ass in Atomic Blonde and The Villainess! It indeed was a busy summer! What were your Summer Film Favorites?

My gal pals have never seen Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot so we went to go watch it at the infamous Cinespia! Some Like It Hot must be Wilder's most popular and beloved film. It was certainly my first film of his and it's undeniably one of the most funny and witty films I've ever seen. We ate our favorite snacks, snuggled up with some blankets, and laughed for days! That last line in the film is one that will forever be engrained in my memory for life. It's a classic!

Earlier this month, I got to catch a screening of one of my favorite Harry Potter films, Prisoner of Azkaban at the Hollywood Bowl with a live-score by the LA Philharmonic. It was one of the greatest experiences ever especially knowing that I was watching the beloved film with so many fans. I never appreciated PoA till years later and after many viewings. The concept of turning time always felt cheap but I now see that it was vital to the story at hand. Alfonso Cuaron who directed PoA has created one of the most memorable, iconic, and pivotal film of the entire HP series. If you have a chance to have this experience with your favorite film of choice, I definitely say jump on it quick!

Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, O'Shea Jackson Jr.
Country of Origin: USA
Rating: R
Time: 97 mins.



I went to LA Film Festival this year and one of the best film I saw there was Ingrid Goes West (See vlog). It was their closing night film and I had no idea what to expect and boy, it hit me like a ton of bricks. The film follows Ingrid, who after the death of her mother and a series of self-inflicted setbacks, moves to Los Angeles to try to befriend an Instagram star, Taylor Sloane. Undeniably, this is one of the most accurate depictions of social media since EVER! 



As someone who is just as obsessed with social media as anyone else living in this digital age, I felt personally attacked by the film. It was so accurate in it's portrayal of the LA socialite and our social media habits that this supposedly "satirical" film was jarring. Aubrey Plaza has never been better as the mentally ill fan girl who just wants to have friends and O'Shea Jackson Jr. as the most grounded and hilarious character in the film. Ingrid Goes West's screenplay is painstakingly humorous while the direction is razor-sharp, making this film, easily one of the best films of the year.

Despite living in Los Angeles my whole life, I've never been to Quentin Tarantino's New Beverly Cinema till now. And what a great way to kick it off but with a screening of Okja with a Q&A with Tarantino himself and Bong Joon-ho! I had such a grand time finally attending the theatre and watching the film. I also did a mini review of the film at the end of the video and least to say, I enjoyed the film! Especially Jake Gyllenhaal's wacky character! I'm so excited to attend more screenings at the New Bev and I hope to see you all there!

I recently went to the LA Film Festival (See vlog) and saw the streetwear documentary, Built to Fail. Built to Fail is a documentary by The Hundred's co-founder, Bobby Hundreds, as he takes a journey to define and document one of the most elusive fashion phenomena of our times, Streetwear. With interviews by Russell Simmons, A$AP Rocky, Benny Gold, and so many more, we get an insider's look at the history of streetwear and it's current state right now. This film is a primer for any streetwear obsessed teen or enthusiast, who wants to start their own brand. It's no easy ride and the film goes through the perils and tribulations of what the business has to offer and how it's evolving. 

Like I said before, I would've never known about The Hundreds if it wasn't for my ex-boyfriend's obsessive passion for the streetwear culture. And I know I'm better for it because as a proud Los Angelenos, LA wouldn't be LA without its streetwear culture.

I went to the LA Film Festival this past week and had a blast! First up, I went to the Whitewashing: Asian American panel with the most stacked guest from Kelly Hu (Scorpion King) to Kelvin Yu (Bob's Burger's) to Leonardo Nam (Westworld)!  Then saw Lena Waithe of Master of None, drop some knowledge on how she writes such brilliant work aka be honest. And attended the world premiere screenings of Streetwear documentary, Built to Fail, Bruce Thierry Cheung's Don't Come Back from the Moon starring James Franco, and of course, the mind-blowing social media commentary film, Ingrid Goes West starring Aubrey Plaza! Even though I didn't catch as many films as I normally would've, every film and panel I attended to was the most insightful and enthralling! I can't wait to come back next year!

Year: 2017
Director: Sofia Coppola
Writer: Sofia Coppola
Cinematography: Philippe Le Sourd
Cast: Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst,  Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning, Oona Laurence, Angourie Rice, Addison Riecke
Country of Origin: USA
Rating: R
Time: 93 mins.



I never thought I would see the day when Sofia Coppola would direct a thriller but here we are with The Beguiled! This southern gothic story is set during the Civil War at a southern girl's boarding school. When one of the girls find a wounded soldier (Colin Farrell), they take him in and sexual tension starts brewing. Sofia Coppola crafts a razor sharp thriller that explores gender dynamics through the female gaze. The film is filled with atmospheric tension from start to finish especially with the music provided by Laura Karpman and Phoenix. The stunning cinematography by Philippe Le Sourd will leave you breathless and wanting more!



The Beguiled is a remake of the 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood and based on the novel by Thomas P. Cullinan. Sofia has been getting a lot of heat for removing a Black slave that was in the original film to focus on the gender dynamics instead of the race relations. But I don't see why it wouldn't have worked if it did so well in the original film but that's Sofia Coppola for you. Regardless of everything, I quite enjoyed it and I'm sure it will get some Oscar nominations! After all, she did win the Best Director award at Cannes this year!

I don't talk about Superhero movies that often but when I do, it's because it looks as good as Ryan Coogler's Black Panther! The story follows T'Challa who returns home to the isolated and technilogically advanced African nation to succeed the throne after his father, the King of Wakanda dies. This film has the most stacked cast I've seen, starting with Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and so many more! I got even more excited to learn that Black Panther will be coming out February 16, 2018 aka Black History Month! Oh, I can't wait!

This is the age-old question I've wondered about before going to film school. Safe to say that sometimes, you won't know the answer till you actually do it. Especially when it comes to film school, it depends on what field in film you want to pursue that will really determine if your education will be worthwhile. I share my experience and the pros and cons of going to film school, no matter how good or expensive it is. Ultimately, I don't regret it but there have been tons of people who have succeeded, with or without it.

Wonder Woman is not only the best DC film ever (because that doesn't say much) but a great Superhero film! As this is the first Wonder Woman film to ever exist so naturally the film focuses on her origin story. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons and trained warrior. When a pilot (Pine) crashes offshore of the Amazon island of Themyscira and tells Diana about the war in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and destiny. 


Director Patty Jenkins did a magnificent job at crafting unforgettable action sequences, three-dimensional characters, and a powerful story about hope. Even though it's a superhero film, it feels very different than the ones we're used to seeing, it's better. There is more compassion, humanity, and love in this story which is why Wonder Woman is exactly the kind of film we need to see in the world right now. I'm so beyond proud to finally see a female superhero in her own film, kicking ass and taking names! Wonder Woman 2 can't come out soon enough!

May was a super busy month! I was working on various film sets, attending Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and celebrating my Birthday, hence why I tuned into more Netflix shows than films. Aziz Ansari's Master of None, Season 2 finally came out and it was one hell of a season that surely revolutionized episodic television. Next up, I wanted to see what the hype was all about with cult-favorite, Twin Peaks. It's as creepy as any David Lynch film and I have no idea when I'll have the guts to finish season 2! Last but not least, Hasan Minhaj's comedy special, Homecoming King has got to be one of the most poignant and powerful stand-up shows I've ever seen. Netflix is killin it! What were your May Favorites?

The Safdie Bros' of Heaven Knows What (See Trailer) are back with another drug-fueled & intensely brutal story called Good Time. It's about a brother's dangerous quest to get his brother out of jail after a botched robbery. It brings me incredible joy to see Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart alike, reinvent themselves after the Twilight Saga. By the looks of the trailer, we're going to see a side of Pattinson, we've never seen before. The film got raving reviews at Cannes and naturally, A24 picked it up alongside Sean Baker's The Florida Project. Good Time comes out August 11th!


Also look at this gorgeous and twisted poster!

I adore everything Bong Joon-ho has done since Barking Dogs Never Bite and I didn't expect anything less in his latest film, Okja! I knew it would most likely have a political message, young female lead, and possibly a large creature in the film but never in my wildest dreams did I expect something like this. Maybe because Bong's films are usually grim compared to the dream-like and effervescent-ness of Okja but it looks refreshing and I'm excited. Netflix will drop the film June 28th but hopefully we can catch it on the big screen as well because by the looks of it, it's going to be downright beautiful.

It's finally here and it's happening! Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot is coming out this week and I couldn't be more excited! Is this the first ever Wonder Woman film to ever exist?! It's about damn time! The film has already been getting rave reviews and it only solidifies my love for this mystical woman who is Wonder Woman. Did not realize how big of a fan I was till I realized I was her for Halloween and own a Barbie-version of her. If I still have my costume, I will dress up as Wonder Woman to watch the film. If not, I'll still try to rock a gold headband! Stay tuned for my review!

Charlize Theron was such a badass villain, I can't wait to see what she does in the next two films! Long time Jeremy Saulnier collaborator, Macon Blair, debuted with his directorial feature called I Don't Feel At Home in This World Anymore which is the most realistic revenge film I've seen yet!

OoOo I'm loving the character poster design of Ana Lily Amirpour sophomore feature, The Bad Batch! It looks almost grim only showcasing the bodies of the characters with their heads chopped off but that basically sums up the vibe of this film. It's a brutal, psychedelic, and transcendental ride through an apocalyptic wasteland. I thought this film was so utterly fantastic that I filmed both a review and a trailer reaction for it! I can't wait to hear what you all think of this cannibal love story when it comes out June 23rd. *Cue Yeah Yeah Yeah's Head Will Roll

As we approach the 25th anniversary of the LA Riots, many films, documentaries, and think pieces have been popping up but it's Justin Chon's film, Gook, that I have my eye on. The topic of the LA Riots is always a touchy one for many Korean and Black Americans alike but I'm glad that Chon made a film that involved both parties especially when the divide between Korean business owners and the Black community has persisted for many decades.

Gook follows Eli and Daniel, two Korean American brothers who own a struggling shoe store and has an unlikely friendship with Kamilla, a street wise 11-year old African American girl. When the Rodney King verdict was announce, riots broke out in South Central Los Angeles and with chaos moving towards them, the trio is forced to defend the store while contemplating the future of their own personal dreams and the true meaning of family. The film won the Audience Award at Sundance and it's having its LA premiere at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival this Saturday, aptly on the anniversary of the LA Riots. All I can say as a daughter of a Liquor Store owner, that watching this teaser was an emotional rollercoaster so get ready because it's going to be a riot.

The Girl Talk Series is back and this time it's a Korea Edition in I Think We Were Born in the Wrong Country. Jaejung and Heejin, two 14-year-olds, living in Seoul, Korea, discuss their discontentment of the high pressure Korean education system. It's widely known that South Korea ranks second in the list of Countries with the Best Education Systems. But at what cost? Most kids attend school on the weekdays and in addition, an after school academy, seven days a week. Not only do they have a remarkable and intense education system in Korea but it is one of the leading countries with the highest suicide rate. It's shocking to hear these girls joke about suicide but this is their reality and they're very aware of it. Studying 12 hours in total, morning to night, seven days a week is a lifestyle they've come to be accustomed to especially when good education leads to a guaranteed brighter future. At times somber and bleak, this is a glimpse into these young girls' world.

She was an incredible villain in the latest installment of the Fast and the Furious series, Fast 8, and now as a top-level spy for MI6, she can do no wrong! It's no wonder why this film looks and feels like John Wick considering it's by the same director, David Leitch! Theron kicks some serious ass and is definitely taking names come July 28th!

The Girl Talk Series is back and this time it's a Korea Edition in Marriage is Complicated. Vivian and Mia, two Korean girls living in Seoul, Korea, discuss Korean weddings, dating culture and martial customs. Growing up in a culture obsessed with the concept of weddings and marriage, the rampant societal pressure to tie the knot is more fervent than ever. In Korea, if one can't find a partner through means of a dating website or friends, parents can apply their children into a dating arrangement so they can meet someone. Although, some want to break out of the traditional mold of marriage, it's still difficult because in Korea, marriage is not about just two people but the entire family. As Vivian and Mia exchange words about Korea's most traditional subject, we learn not only more about Korean culture but realize that even though we all come different cultures, we're not so different after all.

Sarah Adina Smith's sophomore feature, Buster's Mal Heart will not only quench Mr. Robot fan's thirst but give you most rewarding and retrospective movie experience of your life. Smith's previous film, The Midnight Swim had a haunting and refreshing spin on the tired "found footage" genre that solidified her as one of the freshest voice in American cinema. Buster's Mal Heart is an introspective, philosophical ride that'll leave you awestruck from beginning to end. As always, Malek delivers a hauntingly powerful performance as a man who starts questioning his own sanity after encountering a conspiracy theorist. The film comes out April 28th!

What a hell of a trailer, Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is! For the first time ever, I decided to do a double trailer reaction to this film and my god, I am blown away by its spectacular visuals and stacked cast which includes Rihanna! Did you hear me? Rihanna, I tell you! I'll do anything for Princess Riri. I mean, Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne aren't bad together either. Their talent and beauty alone makes them one of the most hippest couple to ever grace the big screen. I have very high hopes after seeing the trailer but it looks so good that I'm scared that it'll be bad. I guess only time will tell when the film comes out July 21st!

Considering that March is post-Oscar season, it's always a good month knowing how all the good films start rolling out! The first film to really knock it outta the park was James Mangold's Logan. People have been saying it's one of the best Superhero films and I gotta agree. March was also the month where I made a whooping 6 videos including my film review for The Belko Experiment and Power Rangers! It's also David Cronenberg's birthday so I had to revisit a classic, Crash! And last but not least, Shudder has been a really superb streaming site for hardcore horror enthusiast where they have coveted films from Ken Russell's The Devils to new releases like Prevenge!

Year: 2017
Director: Dean Israelite
Writer: John Gatins
Cinematography: Luis David Sansans
Cast: Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin, Becky G
Country of Origin: USA
Rating: PG-13
Time: 124 Mins.



Who knew that 90's nostalgia would get the best of me?! Damn those amazing trailer editors! Whatevs, I'm glad it did because this is one reboot, I can get behind! Dean Israelite's Power Rangers gives all the right kinds of feels and with this new class of Power Rangers, I believe we're in good hands! Despite the natural corniness that comes with the film, it's the personal and poignant stories of  each teen beyond their ranger status that makes the film such a rewarding viewing experience.



One of the truly bittersweet aspects of the new Power Rangers its lopsided pacing. The film invested so much time in building the foundation of each teen's origin story that by the time they were able to fully active their Power Rangers' power, the steam runs out quickly.
