Always Be My Maybe
This movie is about two childhood sweethearts, Sasha Tran and Marcus Kim, who had a falling out and end up not speaking for 15 years. After all of those years we see how both characters have changed and grown. One day they reconnect as adults, they notice that the spark between is still there but now they have to try and fit into each others different worlds. -
I believe this movie had a good concept and started off really well, but I feel that it got a little boring later on. Some parts in the movie felt a little dragged on and I ended up losing interest in the movie. The plot was a little predictable and some scenes seemed pointless to add in as they didn’t help feed into the already ongoing storyline. It might just be me, but I felt like the title of the movie ‘Always Be My Maybe’ didn’t fit with movie as the main characters never stated that ‘maybe one day we'll be together’; the main characters just so happened to bump into each other and rekindle. -
The casting of this movie wasn’t too bad, Ali Wong and Randall Park had a good on screen connection, but I enjoyed watching the characters as children more as I personally felt the children had a better on-screen connection. My favourite character would have to be James Saito, who played Harry Kin (Marcus’s dad), he was naturally funny and just an adorable character. -
Overall, Netflix did produce another good movie but I just felt that the storyline could have been better and not so predictable. ~
