Review: Crazy Rich Asians

"I loved it! Simple, but by no means dumb. Light, but with enough emotional beats and such attention to character detail to keep it from being fluff." - Val 

"If Michelle Yeph actually gets an Oscar nomination for this, I'll probably cry. (Tears of joy, of course.)" -Cash"

You mean a new production of WSS on Broadway, directed by European modernist Ivo Van Hove? Yeah. That's happening. The mind whirls.

Tom -- maybe. West Side Story is definitely in the air again!

rdf -- right? *sniffle*

A Steven Spielberg ‘new’ WSS is nothing to be considered great.

I love Tony, and I love Richard Beymer in the role. So under-rated.

And that score! Those lyrics! That dancing! Sigh....so beautiful.

Spielberg should spent his time and clout to bring an original movie musical to the scree - not to remake a classic film

Opera Australia have just announced that this is their 2019 Opera on Sydney Harbour

TOM -- yeah, that's definitely not what I was thinking about when i posted this.

What a masterpiece! Don't you fucking dare, Steven.

@Peggy Sue-I agree. I don't have much confidence in what Spielberg will do.

Some heads being cut off.

A perfect movie that should not be re-made

still mad/sad that Speilberg cut the lesbian-ish relationship between Whoopi's and Margaret Avery's characters in The Color Purple. It was important in Celie's development to love herself. Wish Spielberg could be stopped from doing the WSS remake. But he's powerful and so what can we do but hope for something decent?
