New movie that makes everyone fall in love with Hong Kong...

Well, that's predictable

"Emily Ting's debut feature film, a romantic drama into which she's sunk her life savings, offers Western audiences 'a refreshing take' on the city, she says. Reviewers say the Tourism Board should sponsor the movie"

So... why is it always the White guy gets the Asian girl instead of the other way (Asian guy with the White girl) around?

Namie Amuro "Golden Touch"

Namie Amuro "Golden Touch" release on Namie Amuro's official youtube.com channel on May 26, 2015.  From the studio album, "Genic".

After the music video for "Golden Touch" was published, it was positively received by the Western media. According to the director Masashi Kawamura, the video was shot over a three-month period. Elle magazine compared the video to the effects of optical illusions, calling it “Colorful, fun, gay ... but especially interactive.” Japantrends.com commented that "Golden Touch" “s a good marketing stunt for a dying industry and overseas media has picked the story up too.” Several international blogs and magazines, including Buzzfeed, Elle, Adobo magazine, Australia's Hello Asia, and listed as one of the music videos of the month by Creative Review in the United Kingdom. On June 5, "Golden Touch" debuted in North America on SiriusXM Hits 1 as part of their Youtube 15 schedule, hosted and selected by American blogger and Youtube personality Jenna Marbles.

This video is cute, but I wish Namie appeared more in it. ;)

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (ゴジラvsメカゴジラ)

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II , released in Japan as Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (ゴジラvsメカゴジラ) , is a 1993 Japanese science fiction kaiju film produced by Toho. Directed by Takao Okawara and featuring special effects by Koichi Kawakita, the film starred Masahiro Takashima, Ryoko Sano, and Megumi Odaka. Despite being produced and released in 1993, this twentieth film in the Godzilla series was marketed as the 40th anniversary Godzilla movie, even though, Godzilla vs Spacegodzilla was actually the 40th anniversary film.The film featured the return of classic characters from the original series such as Rodan and Mechagodzilla,as well as introducing an infant Godzilla named BabyGodzilla. Although it shares its Japanese title with Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla , the film is neither a remake nor a re-imagining of the earlier film. Despite its North American title, the film is not a sequel to the original Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla , nor does it share any connections or similarities with it. The film directly follows the events of Godzilla vs King Ghidorah , taking place before 1992's Godzilla vs Mothra . (wikipedia.org).

Another very popular Godzilla movie amongst kaiju fans, some of the highlights include the reboot of MechaGodzilla (this time, not a creation by Aliens, but built from the remains of the future technology from the Mecha King Ghidorah), Rodan/ Fire Rodan (not as large as Godzilla, but still very powerful with a new 'uranium ray'), and they showed Godzilla using his spiral heat ray for the first time (nicely done too).

Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle For Earth (ゴジラvsモスラ)

Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle For Earth (ゴジラvsモスラ) is a 1992 Japanese science fiction kaiju film produced by Toho Co., Ltd.. Directed by Takao Okawara with special effects by Koichi Kawakita, the film stars Tetsuya Bessho, Satomi Kobayashi and Akiji Kobayashi. The 19th installment in the Godzilla series, unadjusted for inflation the film remains the highest grossing film of the entire Godzilla series. After the success of the previous year's Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah , Toho decided to bring back Mothra, their second most famous creation. Composer Akira Ifukube won a Japanese Academy Award for his score. The film was the second highest grossing film in Japan in 1993, second only to Jurassic Park.(wikipedia.org)

This movie has an interesting combination of rebooting the Mothra kaiju and adding the Battra kaiju (sort of like an anti-Mothra).  The twin fairies (referred to as 'The Cosmos' in this movie), the music, the larvae, and metamorphasis are all reminiscent of the original Mothra movie and Godzilla vs. the Thing .  Interestingly, Godzilla fights Battra and come out of a volcano (volcanoes have been used in the past to kill off kaiju).  Megumi Odaka (小高恵美) is back again as Miki Saegusa and Akira Takarada (宝田 明) returns for another Godzilla movie!

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (ゴジラvsキングギドラ)

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (ゴジラvsキングギドラ) is a 1991 Japanese science fiction kaiju film produced by Toho Co., Ltd.. Directed by Kazuki Omori, and featuring special effects by Koichi Kawakita, the film starred Anna Nakagawa, Megumi Odaka, and Akiji Kobayashi. The 18th installment of the Godzilla series featured the return of Godzilla's greatest foe, the three-headed King Ghidorah. The film was a box office hit with sequels released on a yearly basis until 1995.

This film is set after the events of The Return of Godzilla (1984) and Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989). Originally, the film was to be a remake of King Kong vs. Godzilla with the title Godzilla vs. King Kong , but Turner Entertainment demanded too much money for the use of Kong. After this, Toho had the idea of making Godzilla vs. Mechani-Kong (from 1967's King Kong Escapes ), but director Kazuki Omori feared that this would ultimately violate Turner's copyright as well. Toho eventually settled for Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah , pitting Godzilla against his archenemy from the original series. (from wikipedia.org)

This is one of the better Godzilla movies - it has time travelers (who turn out to be the villains), good looking special effects, a decent story (although some people say it's anti-American since the Godzillasaurus beats and kills some of the American soldiers in 1944), King Ghidorah never looked better (in my opinion), and Megumi Odaka (小高恵美) is back as psychic Miki Saegusa.

Here's the trailer:
