The Glorious Purpose of Truth in Loki

/
Free will versus predestination is set up as the show’s main theme, especially as we see Loki, who believes himself to be “burdened with glorious purpose”, reject his pre-determined story and make his own destiny.

WandaVision's Take on Grief Isn't Enough

/
Despite being a huge Marvel fan, I was prepared to give WandaVision a miss when the first few episodes started airing on Disney+. Images of Wanda and Vision appearing in cheesy 1950s style TV shows seemed a long way from the MCU we knew so well. Social media posts discussing the first episode didn’t inspire confidence either. But a family member encouraged me to give it a go—so I did.

Why I Was Sold By Soul

I was thrilled to hear that Disney Pixar’s newest animation, Soul, had won the hearts and warmed the soul of the Golden Globe judges, scooping up two awards for Best Animated Feature Film and Original Score, at the Golden Globes last Sunday.

4 Hard Realities of Life from Lupin

/
To me, what made Lupin so interesting was the titular character, Assane Diop (played by French actor Omar Sy), and how he outwitted the people around him at every turn. Whenever I watch shows like this, I’m always vaguely amused (and bemused) by how eagerly I root for the protagonists, even when they’re supposed to be the “bad guys”.

After months of waiting for the release of Wonder Woman 1984, I was excited to finally get to watch the long-awaited sequel to the 2017 Wonder Woman film. While I found the plot a little messy, what I did not expect was to find certain themes that related to the gospel in the movie.

It's Okay to Not Be Okay: Whose Story Matters?

/
Like most people, I only started watching Netflix’s recent K-drama, “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay”, to check out Kim Soo-hyun’s long-awaited comeback to K-dramaland. But as soon as the opening sequence began, I was completely sucked into the whimsical, Tim Burton-esque story of a beautiful girl trapped in a tower by herself because the world sees her as a “monster who brings along the shadow of death”.

Confessions of A First-Time K-Drama Male Viewer: I Was Hooked on CLOY

/
“Crash Landing on You” (or CLOY) which has taken over the world by storm, marks the first Korean drama I have ever watched and completed. My wife had started the series and I wanted to sit through at least one episode with her to see what all the hype was about. By the end of the first episode, both of us were hooked.
