Are there Asian-American athletic heroes beyond Jeremy Lin and, in the past, Yao Ming? Christopher “C-Dub” Wang thinks he’s one. Ping Pong Playa is a typical sports movie jazzed up in an Asian-American flair. Also, as the title suggests, there’s some hip-hop culture infused in the movie through Jimmy Tsai‘s C-Dub & many of the loud soundtrack beats.

Pi is a film about a man who is pushed outside his comfort zone and pays the price for it. Like the name suggests, there’s plenty of math discussed but the highlight is Max Cohen’s obsession of numbers and how out of touch he is. The grainy black and white presentation assures that the movie isn’t pandering to the mainstream. However the movies looks less dated and anyone who’s interested in the movie can focus on the themes presented by director Darren Aronofsky.
Pi features the nagging of three sides trying to influence Cohen: religion, capitalism, and rationalism. One big struggle over a 216-digit number that either validates Cohen’s genius or insanity. Film scholars and math lovers may have fun digging to the deeper, sometimes number-crunching, meanings. I, however, feel that Cohen should’ve been a gambler, a profession where randomness and chance are at least tolerated. He would be more human and not a fleshy part of a mad machine.
