This week's new DVD release sees love in a variety of ways.
"Crazy Rich Asian"; 4 Stars: It's important to realize that "Crazy Rich Asians", the mainstream Asian cast since "Joy Luck Club" in 1993, is the first major Hollywood album in the modern age. There was a lot of encouragement in the film world about the lack of diversity in the film industry, and the Asian community was one of the tiniest things.
The "Crazy Rich Asian" is not to be thought of as a movie full of Asian actors, but there is an argument that one should be one of the best romantic comedians of the year. This film could easily be called "Singapore's No Sleep" because there was no romantic comedy since Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan had stolen our minds.
"The Little Mermaid"; 2.5 stars: Younger reporter William Moseley and his sister (Loreto Peralta) meet Poppy Drayton, a beautiful mermaid trapped in a glass tank in a circus. The pair soon finds this is not a brewery trick.
The best thing is "Mermaid" is Drayton. There is such a persistent quality in her performance that it is easy to see why someone falls in love with her, his tail or his tail. Drayton puts too many lives at risk for the character. She brings enough energy, life and charm to make this movie's grade sound like a sea trip. High Cs somewhere.
"Blind Spotting"; 3.5 stars: Just as psychologist Edgar Rubin can see a picture in a vase or two with his own eyes, "Blindspotting", written and starred by Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal, is a movie full of blind duplicity. Take a variety of perspectives.
The city of Auckland, California, is being used for prosecution and love letters as the community undergoes major changes. As the film unfolds, the production also sees how social change can be a boom and bust. The final layer of comparison and contrast shows how two young people can grow with the same external stimulus, but the way they are treated in black and white is different.
