  • STAYC Single Album Vol. 4 - Teddy Bear (Random Version)
    The Best V-day Gift
    February 28, 2023 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    "STAYC girls, it's going down!" Since their debut with SO BAD in 2020, STAYC has been stealing hearts with their impressive live performance skills and catchy tunes crafted by producers Black Eyed Pilseung. They make their first comeback of the year with fourth single album Teddy Bear, spreading their cutesy and bubbly "teen fresh" vibe on Valentine's Day! Though STAYC is well-loved for their refreshing and energetic live singing, their singing style has always been a double-edged sword – so overpowering that it's sometimes exhausting to the ear. But in lead single Teddy Bear (Track 1), the girls sound way more comfortable, especially Yoon, Su Min and J. The song adorably expresses the... [read more]
  • Shin Ultraman (Blu-ray) (2-Disc) (Japan Version)
    Ultra entertaining Ultraman reboot
    February 7, 2023 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Back in 2017, I effused about the brilliance of Shin Godzilla, a special effects spectacle that combined dry political satire and giant monster destruction into blockbuster entertainment. I low-key hoped there would be a Shin Godzilla sequel from Anno Hideaki and Higuchi Shinji. Instead, we got something even better: Shin Ultraman. Similar to Shin Godzilla, Shin Ultraman reboots the iconic superhero franchise with an entertaining reimagining of the origin story of an extraterrestrial who lands on Earth and protects the planet from the kaiju monsters and other otherworldly visitors that are wreaking destructive havoc. Portrayed by Saito Takumi, Ultraman, as he comes to be known, assumes the... [read more]
  • NewJeans Single Album Vol. 1 - OMG (Message Card Version) (Random Version)
    New Music from NewJeans!
    January 31, 2023 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Slaying with their debut album New Jeans that includes global hits like Hype Boy and Attention, NewJeans stuns audiences again with their first single album OMG! Min Ji, Hanni, Danielle, Hae Rin and Hye In continue to impress with their clean vocals blended in addictive, refreshing and easy-listening tunes. "Stay in the middle, like you a little. Don't want no riddle, say it, say it back. Oh say it ditto. I want you so, want you. So say it ditto." NewJeans tells another young, puppy love story in the old-school and sentimental Ditto (Track 2). Co-written by Min Ji, The Black Skirts and Oohyo, Ditto showcases a more emotional side of NewJeans in a stylish fashion of music rarely seen in... [read more]
  • The Crossing (2018) (DVD) (Korea Version)
    Coming-of-age crossroads
    January 30, 2023 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    The Crossing technically isn't a Hong Kong film, but it very much looks and sounds like one. The feature debut of director Bai Xue, the Chinese drama follows teenage girl Peipei (Huang Xiao) who traverses the boundary between Shenzhen and Hong Kong every day. She lives in Shenzhen with her single mom (Ni Hongjie), and goes to school in Hong Kong where her father (Liu Kai Chi), a Hong Kong resident, has another family. At age 16, Peipei cares the most about hanging out with her best friend Jo (Carmen Tong), and earning money for their planned trip to Japan. It's her desire to make money for airfare that leads her to secretly befriend Jo's boyfriend Hao (Sun Yang) and join him in a parallel... [read more]
  • Detective VS. Sleuths (2022) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)
    He who fights with monsters
    November 30, 2022 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Detective vs. Sleuths is Wai Ka Fai's first directorial effort in over a decade, and apparently he put all his creative juices into this, because it is impressively over the top. The writer-director packs twist after twist and a whole variety of unhinged characters into this wild Hong Kong crime action thriller with a very high body count. Lau Ching Wan – always the first pick to play Wai Ka Fai characters who are losing a handle on reality (see: Written By and Mad Detective) – anchors the madness as the protagonist who is the maddest yet shrewdest of them all. Detective vs. Sleuths begins with vignettes of notorious past murder cases before introducing crimes happening in the present day.... [read more]
  • (G)I-DLE Mini Album Vol. 5 - I love (Random Version)
    We're born Nxde
    October 31, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Just half a year after their chart-sweeping TOMBOY, (G)I-DLE comes back with another masterpiece release – I love. The girls portray six stories revolving around different kinds of love in their fifth mini-album. Minnie, Mi Yeon, So Yeon, Yuqi and Shuhua confidently break stereotypes again in the groundbreaking title track Nxde (Track 1)! Sampling Habanera from the opera Carmen, the alternative pop jam Nxde is inspired by Marilyn Monroe, with empowering lyrics about Nxde stars unveiling their true selves regardless of what others think: "If you were expecting some rated R show, oh I'm sorry, but that's not what we're showing. For refund, see that direction, whatever people say is not my... [read more]
