I saw #CrazyRichAsians today and it was really good. But since there are some VERY VERY specific white people complaining about why black and Asian Americans are making a big deal out of this movie. I'll break it down for you.(A thread)
The last Hollywood film with a predominantly Asian cast was the "#JoyLuckClub" which was released 25 years ago. From the Motion picture association of America, on average 600 films made in America, are released every year. So about over 15,000 films have been made since 1993.
People like to point out since America is predominately white, they have more white cast movies. Asians are minorities in America (they make up about 5.6%). So by fair logic 5.6% of 15,000 movies (IN AMERICA) is about 840.

10 reasons why you should go watch @CrazyRichMovie today:

1) It’s entertaining. From beginning to end, you laugh, you cry, and you feel all warm inside.

2) It shows the tensions of being an Asian American in Asia. Asian Americans exist in a liminal, in between, space.
3) It shows a variety of masculinities that exists among Asian/Asian American men. One of the most common portrayals of Asian men is that they are effeminate, creating a false impression that paints a monolithic stereotype.
4) It de-fetishizes Asian women from being mere sexual objects. Asian women are often stereotyped as quiet and submissive sex objects, but this movie shows how they are strong and wise.
