    Luna (2CD)

    AGA (Singer)
    Songs for nighttime loners
    January 31, 2018 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Sleepless nights may feel lonely, but they're the perfect time for introspection for people like AGA. Drawing from various genres like jazz, rock and hip-hop, the groovy musician's album Luna eloquently expresses the feeling of loneliness through stories of different lonely people and guides listeners to reconnect with their inner souls. The lead track 3AM (Track 1) creates a tranquil midnight with a very rich 90s R&B flavor. On top of a quiet piano melody fused with catchy drumbeats, the singer-songwriter sings about the internal conflict of a girl who struggles to break up with her lover. Rapper Ghost Style comforts the girl with his deep and gentle voice, which perfectly suits the smooth... [read more]
  • Kassy Mini Album Vol. 1
    Kassy's sonic journey to healing
    January 29, 2018 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Kassy made herself known as a rapper through the reality show Unpretty Rapstar 3 in 2016. However, I would rather call her a "rapping vocalist" because singing is her primary focus. In her first mini-album I Want Love, the R&B singer retains her groovy style while introducing new genres to depict a healing journey after breaking up with a loved one. The main plug "I Want Love" (Track 1) starts the album with a dramatic string melody that expresses the intense heat of love. The ardent mood simmers down when cool synth beats join the song. Kassy's confident and frank rap about the yearning for a past love enriches the appealing blend of electronica and classical music with a bold hip-hop... [read more]
  • The Posterist: The Art Of Yuen Tai-Yung (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)
    He who drew the stars
    January 24, 2018 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    The name Yuen Tai Yung won't ring a bell for most people, but if you're a fan of 70s and 80s Hong Kong films, you'll recognize Yuen's artwork immediately. Yuen's distinctive and eye-catching illustrations graced the movie posters (and VCD/DVD covers) of hundreds of films from Hong Kong cinema's golden age. The self-taught artist was uncannily good at capturing the biggest stars of the day and the tone of action and comedy films. His poster artwork for Bruce Lee films emblazoned the martial arts superstar's name in bold block letters across the top and animated his stunning aura with muscles rippling and limbs flying. Meanwhile, his funny caricature-like drawings for Hui Brothers classics... [read more]
  • C AllStar 2017 Live (2DVD + 2CD)
    Music and society
    January 22, 2018 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    While new groups keep popping up in Hong Kong, few of them can stand firm in the mainstream music world like C AllStar. Thanks to their compelling a cappella skills and realistic yet experimental music style, the vocal quartet quickly found a seat among numerous pop groups and rock bands in the Cantopop scene. However, the habitual collaboration between the four members has gradually become a comfort zone that stifles their creativity. Before going solo to find breakthroughs in their music careers, the C AllStar members inspire thinking about the future of Hong Kong and Cantopop in their farewell concert. Starting from the bossa nova debut song iSing to the EDM-style "Music Colony," C... [read more]
  • Heart Attack (2015) (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
    You should get that looked at
    January 19, 2018 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    The marketing visuals of Heart Attack would have you think that it is a cute romantic comedy of the type that GTH was very good at producing. However, the film's protagonist probably spends more time flirting with the medical meaning of the title than with the doctor he develops a crush on. Directed by Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit, the award-winning comedy-drama offers a hint of romance and a multitude of warning signs about the unhealthy workaholic lifestyles of urban professionals. Sunny Suwanmethanon is hilariously relatable as sloppy-looking freelance graphics designer Yoon, who's known as the best in the business. In order to keep that title and the jobs coming in, he must toil quickly... [read more]
  • Bad Genius (2017) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
    Cruel truth behind exam cheating
    November 30, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Education is important for young people to acquire not only knowledge but also proper social and moral values. However, these values can easily vanish in a goal-oriented education system, under which cheating may become a "strategy" to score high marks in exams. Inspired by the large-scale exam-cheating scandal that happened in Thailand in 2014, director Nattawut Poonpiriya (Countdown) calls for serious reflection on the country's education system and social inequality in the mind-blowing high-school heist thriller Bad Genius. Played by model-turned-actress Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying, math prodigy Lynn is admitted to a prestigious school on a scholarship thanks to her great academic... [read more]
