There were three trailers this week that really grabbed our attention. Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, Stephen King’s Creepshow 2019 Reboot and Taylor Swift’s Cats Live Action Movie. Lets see how they stack up.

Stranger Things experimented a lot in their storytelling approach this season and I felt like it still paid off in delivering a solid and entertaining installment to the franchise. Stranger Things  Season 3 was an exciting, emotional ride but it stuck true to its core at the end of the day — family, friendship and a common sense of heroism. This is why it is still familiar even though the show has already evolved in so many ways. I think I’ll stick around for a season or two more to see what happens next.  

All in all, JoKoy Comin’ in Hot was an entertaining way to spend an hour of your time. You have to brace yourself for the more brutal jokes but if you’re down with it, you can even learn a lesson or two — Cooking Rice the Asian Way and Fix Your Credit. These life lessons does wonders for your lovelife, says this comedian and he might be on to something.  

Flawless CGI, a respectful treatment to the source material, a story that resonates to fans and non fans alike and a perfect cast makes for one entertaining movie and that’s pretty much the summary of Detective Pikachu. I would really love to see Ryan Reynolds reprise the role. The twist at the end was super cool, I’m telling you. I had so much fun. This is how you do a live action adaptation. 

All in all, Touch Your Heart delivered an honest, heartwarming, simple but effective love story portrayed by characters that also touch the hearts of the viewers. The final scene and dialogue, in particular perfectly captured the essence of the show. I have nothing but glowing words for this series and sincerely hope that Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na will work on another project like this one because their chemistry is just too strong to ignore.

All in all, I would consider Kingdom to be one of Korea’s finest saeguk dramas that can rival the suspense and intensity of HBO’s Game of Thrones. By the first season’s end, it had Battle of Castle Black feels which only fueled one’s desire to see what happens next when the second season opens. Too bad filming will only begin next month and fans will have to wait for another few months before we could binge on another epic season. I for one, could not wait to see if my conspiracy theories are correct. One word for the entire thing — brilliant, even though it ended on a cliffhanger. I could not think of more superlatives for this series. Seriously. 

All in all, I think that Black Panther was a good solo movie, especially to introduce the Black Panther to the MCU. However, at the end of the movie, I felt more connected to the villain than to the hero and I don’t think that’s what the movie was gunning for. While I would love to see Black Panther fighting alongside the Avengers, I’m not all that interested to see another solo movie. A spinoff with Okoye would be better in my book. But that’s just me.
