Let us all take a deep breath and appreciate the marvelous work of David E. Kelley for the mini-series Big Little Lies. I possibly can’t go on a day without posting anything because Liane Moriarty is just genius for writing this and it’s a shame that I wasn’t able to read it firsthand. 

We can’t deny that the production is enormous (HBO always does) but c’mon! These five women! And Nicole Kidman? Like, Nicole fucking Kidman! The casting is perfect. Zoe’s so hot, Laura’s better-not-mess-with-me aura, Woodley’s young face for a young mom, Reese’s sophistication and Nicole’s sweetness and gentleness. Someone, anyone deserves an award. 

Each line is crisp and intriguing and devouring. Each cut is balanced and well-placed. Making you want for more and terrifying you for what’s next. Seven episodes is just enough to arouse the viewers, kill the excitement and shatter you all at once. At the end, I was crying. Not sobbing. I felt sad and relieved and happy at the same time. Is that even possible?

Applause. Standing ovation for 120 seconds (maybe more).

This is now on my Top 2 must-watched TV series (first is Game of Thrones). I will keep telling people to watch this.


Catherine Keener and I made a list of must-watch movies for Hailee Steinfeld while filming ‘Begin Again’. Here are some of my favorites. 

The Philadelphia Story

Sweet and funny, it’s the perfect capsule of that time period. 


Great career-making performances from Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, with a Polish director [Roman Polanski] delivering the best of American filmmaking with a French flair. 

Best In Show

Catherine O'Hara leads a cast of comediennes that are beautiful and sexy and funny and loose and absolutely delicious. 


Weaboo Wednesday: Puella Magi Madoka Magicka. This is one of those anime shows that redefines a genre. Though it may seem like your typical magical girl show, “Madoka” takes on a very dark and realistic view of the genre. The psychological drama deconstructs the genre and makes one question “What is the price you’re willing to pay?” The music and art are superb, and the series makes you question life itself. Word of advice: do not take this show lightly. It’s made me, a grown man, cry.

OK so as I promised, this post is going to be about the movie A Story About Yonosuke (Yokomichi Yonosuke in Japanese)

Its year 1980, and the story follows a young man named Yokomichi Yonosuke. He has just arrived in Tokyo, Japan for his first year of university. There he meets friends and makes acquaintances, working part time and becomes a member of Samba Club. A little awkward and infinitely quirky, Yonosuke’s life influences his friends’ in a subtle and positive way.

To say anymore would give away the movie too much, but I highly recommend this movie. This movie is shown in the form of A B A B A B, in other words, alternating time line between A, Yonosuke’s college days, and B, current days. Even telling you this is spoiling the movie quite a bit, IMO.

In terms of cinematography, the movie does a great job capturing the “old timey” feel of 1980s Japan, down to the haircuts and clothes of the people during that era, and makes you feel like you’re right in the middle of it.

There are two things I love about this movie: one is its positivity, and the other is it’s life-likeness.

Yonosuke is a very positive person. Through his unselfish and naive actions in the movie, he makes subtle changes to his friends’ lives. The movie takes you through how Yonosuke befriends each of them and the unique problems they faced, and how he nonchalantly helps them through each. In doing so, Yonosuke’s character is developed and revealed. I really love the subtle approach this movie employs to show character development for Yonosuke and his friends. Growth comes in a very natural manner in this movie, and it makes you feel like you grew right along with the characters.

And that’s the second reason I love this movie. Life is awkward. Life is hard but funny too. A Story of Yonosuke does a great job balancing the awkwardness of life with bits of sadness and love. This movie is just so life-like, you’ll feel like you’re right there with each character, and come to see each character as someone you personally know. The characters and the story are very relatable.

At the end of this movie, I was overwhelmed with how much I loved this movie. Not only was it entertaining, I was rather inspired by Yonosuke. I’ve written once before about how I want my funeral to be surrounded by friends who will remember me as someone who made their lives better. It was very encouraging to see Yonosuke reflect this goal of mine. And it leaves me wondering how I can be an even better person. Few movies, I think, can make you think this way.

And that’s the challenge I want to leave with everyone. Watch this movie and think about how your life betters those around you. Your life, however long or short, is never your own. Please always remember this.


guys i dont care that its an hour long, you absolutely need need need to watch this.

“Two years he walks the Earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, ‘cause "the West is the best.” And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual revolution. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the great white north. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild.“
