Review: Master of None

The Aziz Ansari series Master of None, is back on Netflex!

If you watched the first season you will been familiar with Ansari's character Dev, a second generation American Indian who we follow as he navigates a career in acting as a minority, dating in NYC and managing the expectations of his immigrant parents. At the end of the last season we see him break up with his girlfriend, a relationship we witnessed develop from the start of the season from a one night stand, in to a friendship, then dating, and moving in with one another.

Film Review: Get Out

** SPOILER ALERT **


This weekend I finally went and saw the film Get Out.
I have been meaning to see it since it first got released. Late I know, but with all the fuss made about its story-line (especially from white liberals) I had to go see it while it was still at the cinema.

Get Out created an awesome build up of suspense, effectively used light comedic relief (in Chris' black TSA friend), and its story-line was a fun new twist to the old "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" cinematic narrative.

For me, Get Out was reminiscent of a Steven King adaptation but instead with the plot centering around race - I'm thinking Sleepwalkers, sans the shape-shifter…
