After years of hearing about incredible panels, celebrity appearances, and out-of-this-world cosplay, this was my first year in attendance of San Diego Comic-Con International. I came equipped with my own cosplay, my badge, the official app on my phone, and knowledge of everything I was able to learn in advance about this ultimate gathering of the nerds. But as the convention kicked off, everything else came with little to no expectation, and that balanced along the line between really awesome and downright bad.
4 Strangely Satisfying Moments From SPIRITED AWAY
SPIRITED AWAY has been loved and cherished by many, as it has been praised for its beautiful animation, well developed characters, and incredible storytelling. But there’s more to the film than all that is magnificent and immediate to the eyes. People who’ve seen it several times also appreciate the smaller moments that make up the whole as well; some more satisfying in their own unique ways than others.
Filmmaker H.P. Mendoza Discusses Toxic Masculinity, #MeToo, and the Creation of BITTER MELON
BITTER MELON has been in the works for the past two decades; beginning with a script Mendoza wrote back in 1997. However, having gone through similar experiences as portrayed in the film, he believes that it’s because he was still processing it all at the time that he wasn’t ready to properly tackle the story just yet.

Why A MOMENT’S WORTH Is Better Off Without a Film Adaptation
“A Moment’s Worth” will always have an ongoing journey; in being discovered by others and analyzed and dissected for its multiple meanings. To me, that brings me more joy than any offer for the possibility of being adapted for film. It’s been almost two years since its publication, and while I continue to write other novels, I’ll always look at this one with a special fondness, with or without a film adaptation.
Why Moana May Be Disney’s Most Progressive Princess Yet
Moana will be Disney’s first Pacific Islander princess who, together with Maui, sets out on a journey across the ocean, in search of an island that may or may not be real. However, it is recently where I realized something that just may make this upcoming film even more extraordinary: Based on what’s been revealed so far, it doesn’t look like Moana will have a love interest in the film.
Watching THE KARATE KID PART II in 2016
It has been a while since I had seen any of THE KARATE KID films. Being born in the 90’s, I first watched the original film in 2004 and was immediately intrigued by it. I watched its sequels a few months later and out of the two, I like many others found the first sequel to be quite a follow-up.
