Everything Everywhere All At Once hit the screens more than a year ago, but it’s been making headlines everywhere all at once in the last few months, as the film began to sweep all the major awards, from the Golden Globes to most recently, the Oscars.

This was the memory that came to mind while I was watching Stranger Things 4 Vol. 1—I was bullied for the first time in my first year of high school.

We may have been driven to isolation by the pandemic, but many of us are already schooled in its ways. And as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness shows, it is a dangerous way to live.

Amidst the shadows and corruption of this neo-noir mystery are challenging themes for us in a world which is increasingly enraged and struggling with hopelessness and a bleak future.

Imagine this: After years of striving and struggling, you’ve found yourself reaching the bottom of the pit. With nowhere to turn to and seemingly no way out of your circumstances, a random stranger offers you a once in a lifetime opportunity to win a truckload of money. All you have to do is participate in a simple series of games. What would you do?

As much as I enjoyed Song Joong-ki's portrayal of the polished mafia consigliere, watching Vincenzo torture his enemies even as they pleaded for him to put a bullet through their heads and spare them of the excruciating pain and misery just didn’t sit right.

I remember stepping out of the cinema with a warm and fuzzy feeling, in full agreement with the show’s themes of forgiveness, grace, and even teamwork (how Raya was eventually able to carry out her mission with the help of a group of companions, in contrast to the beginning when she was ploughing on as a lone wolf). However, as I thought some more about the film’s core message—trusting others will make this world a better place—I wondered if it was a tad too simplistic.

Marriage and Divorce): Squashing the Happily-Ever-After Bubble
When I first saw the promotion clip for Netflix’s K-drama, Love (Ft Marriage and Divorce), I knew I had to watch it. Finally, a drama series that deals with the realities of marriage instead of the usual cheesy love narrative that has become the hallmark of most K-dramas.
