The war between smart people - Guy Ritchie - Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, Biohazard Operation Raccoon City Soundtrack, Nobuo Uematsu - Piano Opera Final Fantasy IV-VI & more! - in Weekly Music and Movies Update!


Welcome to this week's Movie/Music news roundup, containing new Japanese and Hong Kong Video and Music releases from this week listed at Play-Asia.com.

Sherlock Holmes and his friend and colleague Dr. Watson is back in a Game of Shadows. The streets of Industrial era England was dark, not only because of the smog, but because of the dark ploys by Holmes' arch-rival, professor Moriarty. He was but a name, a presence that looms over the horizon like a dark cloud in the first movie. Now viewers get to taste the thickness of evil.

Full of clever plot twists and endless action. The film is a witty re-imagining of the classic detective story. The special effects that sets the franchise apart from other Sherlock Holmes movies are back. All the logic and mechanics give the overheat battles an icy sheen.

Operation Raccoon City departs from the Biohazard Franchise in a variety of ways. However, the danger that threatens to consume the gamers and the epicness of the battlefield remains a key aspect of the game. Explore the ruins via the sound track. Walk down the dark lanes and expect zombies to jump out, or head into the battles in the Original Soundtrack.

Let your imagination wander to the far distant places where knights ride off to battle and black mages call forth their summon beasts. Final Fantasy IV-VI are representatives of the Japanese RPG, Nobuo Uematsu's music inspires generations of gamers with their classiness.

Bitrates were low in those days, yet nothing could hide the beauty if those melodies, now, the music producer is back himself to produce the piano arrangements of his themes. From the emotional pieces to the battle music to the medleys that takes listeners around all the fascinating spots in the game, the soundtrack brings back the good old times and sooth away fatigue.
