After two years of silence – which I spent listening to the previous albums released by the band – HeavenDust is back with a nice bonus album. They’re working on a new album as well, one that will have Shin singing, because they have no female singer anymore. The next album will have the usual heavy rock music they do, mixed with traditional Japanese music and traditional instruments. This bonus album is somewhat different, it’s more relaxed, mellow, it’s kind of like a solo album from Shin, who wrote all the songs. It’s quite dark too.

So, I recently moved to New York and soon got hold of a free ticket to the Tribeca Film Festival. What should I watch? An Asian movie, of course… so I ended up seeing the premier of this great, new, Vietnamese martial art/action movie, directed by Le Thanh Son. I had no expectations and got surprised what a great choice it was, this movie is amazing, and I’m sure as soon as it hits  internatinal theaters or DVD, many people will talk about it. In Vietnam it was a big box-office success.

The story is about a female gangster who teams up with a group of guys to take possession of a suitcase. There are some philosophical talk and cheesy, dramatic scenes, but the movie is all about the fights and other action scenes. And they are great. Thanks to Johnny Tri Nguyen who we can know from Tom Yum Goong or The Rebel. His real-life girlfriend and partner in the film, Veronica Ngo is also cool. Watch the trailer:

Tai Chi Master OST

pzst0026.jpg The Tai-Chi Master (aka Twin Warriors) soundtrack is a rare gem, and it’s quite surprising that it’s still available at yesasia (or at least it was recently), since this classic kung fu flick starring Jet Li was made in 1993. The composer is Wu Wai-lap (William Wu). A video:
