Movie Review: Crazy Rich Asians

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3104988/

I hate how watching this felt like I was watching one of the Twilight movies or any of those teen supernatural love stories. Those stories suck ass. I liked the animation quality and art direction. Ultimately, I think this is a show people can skip.
