The Ubiquity

Alex Kim, Assistant Editor

Hey all, Alex here. I am currently an assistant editor for the Ubiquity, and I have been in journalism since my freshman year. I’m a pretty big movie fan: I watch well over one hundred movies a year, and I try to make sure that most of those movies are good. I like most film genres, but I do have several hot takes, especially about superhero movies. Currently, I have seen over 950 movies, and this constant viewing has turned me into a pretty pretentious movie-watcher.

However, I’m not just a movie fan. I also love video games. I feel like video games and movies are two sides of the same coin. They have an incredible amount of similarities, but they have a few fundamental differences that make them unique from one another. If anyone is wondering, my favorite film is Celine Sciama’s 2019 film Portrait of a Lady on Fire. It is the best and most personal film I have ever seen. I love it a lot, and I think about it almost every day. And my favorite video game is the original 1997 Final Fantasy VII. It was a really beautiful story with some of my favorite fictional characters, and I really enjoy the gameplay.

 

12.3.21 Update

We are now in the final few weeks before the beginning of Winter Break, and the past few weeks have been very busy for me. Due to my classes and college essays, I have been preoccupied. I have not been able to go out much or see friends, so the workload has been very unfortunate for my social life. 

However, over Thanksgiving break, I watched Hamilton live with my sister. I had never seen a Broadway musical before, so this was a very new experience, but it was certainly fun. The whole cast had very good energy, and they kept the audience entertained. 

I also have not seen many films lately due to my school work, but I want to catch up on some watching over the break. There are so many great films that I have not been able to see that came out this year, and I am very eager to watch them.
