Everything Everywhere All at Once is a movie that lives up to its name. Going into the movie, I didn’t have much of an idea about what it would be like, other than that it involved the multiverse and had a predominantly Asian cast.
Everything Everywhere All at Once was a mix of comedy, thought-provoking, and thrilling. For the first part of the movie, I was pretty confused and it took me a while to settle into the flow of the movie. It is important to keep an open mind when watching, as the story takes some time to develop and make sense (for me it took about 30-45 minutes or so).
If you have ever watched the show Community, there is an episode that is similar to what Everything Everywhere All at Once is like. It is the episode where Troy rolls a dice, which causes parallel universes and situations to occur at the same time; each has a different outcome based on a tiny, seemingly insignificant change. It is a concept that takes some time to wrap your brain around, but one that makes sense if done right.
Everything Everywhere All at Once does not fall into any one category, yet it does not feel like it is trying to do too much; this is a great combo to have and is a big reason why I believe the movie has succeeded (and vastly outperformed expectations).

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
