  • With Prisoners (2017) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
    Walking with prisoners
    October 12, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Hong Kong's "Prisons Department" was renamed "Correctional Services Department" in 1982 to emphasize the rehabilitation of prisoners rather than punishment. However, inmate abuse scandals have continued to emerge despite the change in the department name. To increase public awareness about the human rights of juvenile inmates, rookie director Andrew Wong recreates the dark world of a youth detention center in his directorial debut With Prisoners, which questions the effectiveness of violent discipline methods in rehabilitating criminals and restoring order. Based on a real-life story, With Prisoners offers a brutal yet realistic look into the life of juvenile offenders under the Hong Kong... [read more]
  • Close-Knit (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version)
    How to knit a family
    October 12, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    From Kamome Diner to Glasses to Rent-a-Cat, Ogigami Naoko is known for warm and quirky dramas that create escapist havens from the troubles and loneliness of modern society. In her latest Close-Knit, the writer-director knits another peaceful haven in the welcoming home of a makeshift family formed by a transgender woman, her boyfriend and the niece they take in. When we first meet Rinko (Ikuta Toma), she has already reached a place in her life that many people can only dream of. She has transitioned completely, though she hasn't yet legally changed her gender. She works at a nursing home where everyone seems accepting, and she's living with her mild-mannered boyfriend Makio (Kiritani... [read more]
  • 29+1 (2016) (Blu-ray + Keyholder + Booklet) (Hong Kong Version)
    Embracing the big 3-0
    September 29, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    "30" can be a stressful number to some women. It is often considered the deadline of some major life events like getting married. In 2005, stage producer and actor Kearen Pang also entered her thirties. Instead of worrying about whether she can get married on time, she treated "30" as an age to meet new challenges. That year, she left her theatre troupe and made her solo debut with the one-person show 29+1, which casts new light on life as well as the big 3-0. In the original stage version, Kearen Pang played two 29-year-old Hong Kong women: successful marketing executive Christy and cheerful CD store worker Tin Lok. To offer a more vivid portrayal of the characters in the movie remake, the... [read more]
  • Primary EP Album - Pop
    Primary's first foray into pop music
    September 28, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Primary's music style is always unpredictable. Hidden behind his quirky cardboard box mask with a bird beak, the producer's musical mind can never be read. Instead of following the trend, he follows his heart to create music. His carefree attitude towards music leads to an extremely broad music spectrum, ranging from old-school jazz and groovy R&B to electronic music and funky hip-hop. Less than a month after the New Wave EP Shininryu, the versatile musician makes an unexpected foray into the pop world with his second EP Pop that further expands his music landscape. While Shininryu features hidden gems from the K-pop world, Pop enlists vocalists from popular idol groups to tell different... [read more]
  • PROJECT-1 EP [Type Red] (SINGLE+DVD) (Japan Version)
    Block B's vocalists shine in Japan collaboration project
    September 22, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Block B often seems to live or die around Zico, but the other members are also talented in their own right. Through Block B Project-1 in Japan, Tae Il, B-Bomb, Jae Hyo, U-Kwon and P.O get the chance to shine in a different setting through original collaborations with other artists. U-Kwon and P.O duly carry forth the mantle of Block B's hip-hop sound in WINNER, a hot-blooded track with bombastic beats and a catchy hook. No one would accuse the self-hyping hip-hop bop of being deep and meaningful, but it's the kind of high-spirited musical bragging that's great for blasting at top volume. Though the song's composition and arrangement are on-trend to the point of being too familiar sounding,... [read more]
  • Peejay - Walkin' Vol. 2
    A breath of fresh air in K-pop world
    September 21, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    After debuting with hip-hop duo Rhyme Bus in 2007, Peejay went behind the scenes and emerged two years later as a producer in IU's first album. Unleashing his irresistible smooth hip-hop style, the songwriter started to gain recognition with a series of groovy hits including Beenzino's Dali, Van, Picasso, Zion.T and Crush's "Just" and Zico's "I Am You, You Are Me." Peejay started the Walkin' project in 2015 to collect his private productions that are hardly heard in the pop scene. Different from his mainstream hits, songs from the first installment Walkin' Vol. 1 exuded a strong outer space vibe that revealed his unique hip-hop taste. In keeping with his signature soulful style, his second... [read more]
