‘San Andreas:’ Movie Review

Science never ceases to provide any stretch of imagination regarding our world and how it is always changing. With that, natural disaster films begin to take shape and form, ever since the early transitions from silent films to major motion pictures. We’ve had films about Volcanos, Floods, Fires, Hurricanes, Tsunamis, and even events on a […]

‘Welcome To Me:’ Movie Review

Who doesn’t want to be like Oprah Whinfey? That’s actually a rhetorical question, but there is no question that plenty of women would switch places with her in a heartbeat. All any woman would need to do is build a ton of beneficial connections, establish your own unique personality, produce, direct and star in their […]

Dimon: Voting Against My Pay Package Means You’re A Lazy & Stupid Investor

I don’t really talk about what I own or what stocks that I like, but aside from Rite Aid, I do like me some JP Morgan Chase & Co (NASDAQ: JPM). It’s consistently outperformed its peers regarding and it shows that it doesn’t need to rely on higher rates to secure revenue. Despite all of […]

Yellen: Productivity May Be Depressing Wages

I’ve discussed Productivity and Wages before in a rather long and slightly wonkish blog post. I also comment on how sluggish wage growth seems to be in this economy, despite strong employment growth each and every month. For the most part, you could blame the evident slack in the labor market for the slow wage […]

‘Pitch Perfect: 2’ Movie Review

I’m not a big fan of musicals, dancing or sports films. Not unless the screenwriters are planning to surprise me with something that’s different from the normal musical/dancing/sports film flowchart. Pitch Perfect: 2 does almost nothing to accomplish this, which is probably why so many people have gone to see it within the past two […]

‘The Age of Adaline:’ Movie Review

This is the type of film you would watch when you need a unique perspective on what it would be like to live forever. The Age of Adaline provides a unique sense of mystery, followed by an interesting concept for views (especially women): a woman who can not only live forever, but also cannot age […]

Far East Musings & Shadow Banking

I talk about China on twitter, a lot. I often talk about my plans about the region, whether its personal or business related. I usually discuss my dreams in living/visiting Hong Kong one day. Cantonese is also the third language that I speak (the second being Japanese). There is a lot to like and dislike, […]

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Movie Review

What do you call a film that is absent the glamor, flash, hype and all of the automobiles being driven look like total shit? I’m not sure, but I like to call it the anti-Fast & Furious. That’s basically what you get when you think of ‘Mad Max.’ The iconic George Miller trilogy finally returns […]

‘Hot Pursuit:’ Movie Review

Unfortunately, Hollywood has reused and rehashed the buddy comedy routine to the point of recognition. Some people would suggest that we shouldn’t try to reinvent the wheel. If we had it their way, we would still most likely be riding around in horse carriages and buggies. Needless to say, old skits can be presented as […]

‘Adult Beginners:’ Movie Review

I don’t only watch Blockbusters, you know. Every once in a while, I like to take the path less taken and watch a good ol’ indie film. I find that Blockbusters are like listening to modern pop music. No matter how terrible it actually is, regardless of how poorly it does in sales during its […]
