In this episode the co-hosts gush over the visual feast that was Marvel’s “Black Panther”! They discuss the amazing array of female characters, how Killmonger is one of the best antagonists in the MCU, and that Shuri and M’Baku pretty much stole the film. Also, more flailing over Angela Bassett (but you all expected that, right?).
What is more important than those exclusive merchandise and scoring autographs at San Diego Comic-Con 2018? The food and drinks, of course– which I am ALWAYS a huge fan of! This year, restaurants and bars in the Gaslamp at downtown San Diego are pulling all the stops all weekend with themed beverages and meals to celebrate our collective nerd party for the long weekend on July 18 until July 22nd. Want to know where to get the tastiest treats? Check out our list below!
Get your Captain America waffle on at Café 222 on Island Avenue: a malted waffle shaped like Captain America’s shield, topped with fresh berries and whipped cream.
For the Star Wars fans, check out Prohibition Liquor Bar on Fifth Avenue where you can order drinks called Never Tell Me the Odds (Redemption Rye,demerara, Averna and R&D house bitters), I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing (El Silencio Mezcal, watermelon cordial and R&D smoke bitters), or Let the Wookie Win (bourbon, lime, ginger and Fernet).
Asian American ComiCon was one of the best conventions I’ve been to in awhile, possibly a new favorite of mine. When I planned to attend the convention, I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew there were a couple of interesting panels I wanted to see and George Takei will be there. Definitely enough of an incentive to go, especially just to show support to fellow Asian-American creators and the community.
The afternoon turned out to be one of the more memorable and inspiring day I’ve had as a creative person and as an Asian woman.
There is a lot to celebrate when it comes to the latest Spider-Man “reboot”—besides the movie actually being really, really, really amazing. The best Spider-Man movie yet in my humble opinion. I am totally biased though, Spider-Man is my favorite Marvel hero. Although, I admit, Spider-Man 2 with Tobey McGuire still holds a special place in my heart. Alfred Molina as Doc Ock. Can’t deny, fam.
Still, Spider-Man: Homecoming did an amazing job casting a diverse group of actors and since I am Filipino, I had to talk about the outstanding performance by Jacob Batalon as Need Leeds.
Seriously… Batalon is a gift.
