Asian on Asian Crimes Go Under the Radar

Up until recently in the United States, there hasn’t been much media coverage of “Asian on Asian crimes“. There have been mass murders in America alone of Asian people killing people of their own kind. Why is that? And how come the media hasn’t shown this on the news? Asian people are known in general as good citizens of the community. Maybe not so much law-abiding since they cause the most care accidents in overall, but they are known to live peacefully. Honestly, they don’t. Asians commit murders and robberies on their own kind since the earliest of Asian history! … Continue reading Asian on Asian Crimes Go Under the Radar

“Chasing Ice”

I watched the documentary which follows James Balog and his team of environmentalist photographers. He started the organization called EIS – Extreme Ice Survey. James was already fascinated with photography of nature but transitioned his focus towards the melting ice caps in the northern hemisphere which is caused by global warming. James Balog was already suffering from knee problems and even underwent surgery for his knees, but he was persistent in getting the pictures to prove to various organizations that global warming is affecting catastrophic events. With media footage from many news channels, many news personalities are in denial about … Continue reading “Chasing Ice”

“DJANGO UNCHAINED”

So I finally got to watch “Django Unchained”! This is one of Quentin Tarintino’s better story films. I like how the movie isn’t made on fancy digital format which helps give this movie a more gritty feel to it since it’s suppose to set during pre-American Civil War. Christoph Waltz plays a stellar Dr. King Shultz who in the beginning would tell people he meets that he’s a dentist. Jamie Fox plays the main character Django Freeman. Kerry Washington plays the wife of Django who was sold to one of the largest plantations which is owned by Leonardo DiCaprio. Samuel … Continue reading “DJANGO UNCHAINED”
