‘Harold & Kumar’ opens today

Harold & Kumar

“Harold & Kumar: Escape From Guantanamo Bay” opens today and it’s my most anticipated movie of the year now that the new “Star Trek” has been pushed back to 2009. I know I’m not the only one who’s been waiting to see “Harold & Kumar.”

All the people (me included) who complain about the lack of Asian Americans in movies should go out and support this film so more like it can be made. The first “Harold & Kumar” didn’t actually do that well at the box office, but DVD sales helped make the sequel a reality.

Go out and see it!

Look for an interview with “Harold & Kumar” star John Cho, who also plays Sulu in my most anticipated movie of 2009, “Star Trek,” in The Spaces Issue of “Hyphen” (out soon).

The Spaces Issue will also have a story (by yours truly) about how Asian Americans and other people of color have been marginalized and stereotyped in “Star Trek” even though the TV shows and movies have had diverse casts by Hollywood standards.

This post is also on Hyphen magazine’s blog.
