crazy rich asians
Movie review – an emotional thrill ride
By Destiny Royston – Guest Blogger
As a movie fanatic who enjoys seeing what’s new at the movies, I had to see Crazy Rich Asians directed by Jon M. Chu. What drew me in is it being one of my favorite movie genres, a romantic comedy, and the all asian cast starring Constance Wu as Rachel Chu and Henry Golding as Nick Young.
I love movies with diversity and viewpoints from all races. Crazy Rich Asians shows that through the protagonist’s struggle with fitting in with her long-time boyfriend’s family. She’s different from them in many ways from wealth, family, history and personal opinions.

The Preview

Rachel Chu is a hardworking NYU economics professor who is in love with her boyfriend, Nick Young. They are invited to his cousin’s wedding where Rachel meets Nick’s wealthy and intimidating family. Throughout her time in Singapore, she discovers secrets within Nick’s family and her own. It’s a feel good movie with stumbles along the way, but the emotional thrill ride is what made this movie entertaining.
“..the emotional thrill ride is what made this movie entertaining.”

What I related to the most is Rachel’s childhood and being raised by a single mom. In the movie her mom comes to Singapore to comfort her daughter after Rachel finds out unwanted news from Nick’s mother, Eleanor Sung-Young. In that scene it was emotional as though Rachel didn’t grow up with much, she appreciated everything her mom has done for her. She knows through her struggles of trying to fit in and be good enough, that she was enough for Nick.
“Crazy Rich Asians deals with life in American and in Asia, and how family plays a role in different ways.”

The ending summed everything together and ended with an ending everyone would enjoy. Crazy Rich Asians deals with life in America and in Asia, and how family plays a role in different ways. Though the movie showcases the glamorous lives of Nick’s family and the other rich natives, it never strays far from the love between Rachel and Nick and how they see luxury in their love alone.

Amazon’s Past Reveals the Future of FedEx

I was sitting down with a friend who works in sales at FedEx a few years ago and I brought up the question of Amazon replacing FedEx as a dominant player in shipping. My friend said that would never happen. FedEx isn’t worried about Amazon. At that time Amazon Prime was new. Amazon had just purchased a fleet of jets and trailers for shipping. A look at Amazon’s past was like the handwriting on the wall for me.
