Parasite is one of the highly buzzed and critically acclaimed movies of 2019. And while such movies are usually either not my cup of tea or not as great as everybody lauds them to be, i daresay that Parasite deserves all the praises it’s garnered. Continue reading “[Movie] Parasite”
The series that begins with the ending and ends where it started, only neither of which is conclusive. Continue reading “[Drama] Vagabond”
Aaahh, finally there’s a K-drama i like from beginning to end this year. It’s quite an expected drama too. Because, who knew it would be something with ‘ghost’ in its title? Continue reading “[Drama] Catch the Ghost”
Confession time: i’m never too fond of A.Ra.Shi as a song, despite it being the group’s debut song and whatnot, but i’m liking A-RA-SHI: Reborn. Quite a lot. Even if they’re inherently the same song. Continue reading “Arashi, Arashi, MY dream…”
After numerous reiterations about my strong opinions against sequels and the like, you’d think i’d avoid each and every one of them at all costs. Reality is i’ll still succumb to temptation once in a while… like how i bought advanced tickets for Frozen II and watched it the day it premiered.

Who knew the day when i could embed Arashi’s official video would come?

When it comes to music releases, Day6’s is hardly predictable. When i thought i’ve figured out a certain pattern, they veer off course. For example, i thought they’re slated for mid-year and year-end releases now, they dropped their second record of the year just three months after their first — a full-length album at that; i thought they’ve transitioned into making happier and livelier songs, The Book of Us: Entropy shatters everything and throws us back into the emo loop; and when i expected to hear familiar tunes, this album houses new and different sounds from what the band has produced so far. Continue reading “Entropy: it’s a Sweet Chaos… but i like.”
This was actually the next blog idea on my list after completing my first ‘on the road to 5×20’ post back in July last year. However, i realized that i didn’t have all of Arashi’s PVs that it might be quite unfair to sort my favorites just based on what i had in hand… But then, they release this 5×20 All the BEST!! CLIPS 1999-2019 containing 63 single PVs they’ve released so far except Brave, two of them are Natsu Hayate‘s (and 9 more clips from a tour, a b-side, and album lead tracks in the LE version), which seems to tell me that now i have no excuse not to work on this List. Continue reading “on the road to 5×20: favorite PVs”
“Let’s unleash the mad dogs again.”
Hearing that line again is enough to get me all excited and waiting impatiently for this movie to be screened in my country despite my general aversion to sequels, spinoffs, and the like. Because it’s Oh Goo-tak who says it, and it’s Bad Guys! Continue reading “[Movie] The Bad Guys: Reign of Chaos”
