Re: USA Shaw Brothers Releases

I just ordered Well Go's mediocre Jade Tiger DVD because it has Mandarin mono. I have that version but have yet to watch it . Had the IVL version. Great film. It's gonna be standard Well Go vid quality so don't expect it to be perfect but all things considered is probably the best option out there ...

Re: USA Shaw Brothers Releases

I think it's safe to say we wont have any more R1 releases. Apparently, Media Blasters is done. So your only hope is for the Weinsteins to outsource their releases from other companies. Real shame as I was hoping for the next batch of releases to come out ages ago but it's essentially dead.

I say go for it. That's just a few quid cheaper than what I paid for it when you factor in the conversion rate in here in the States.

Re: LOTR: EE's in HD in 2011

Snagged a copy as I highly doubt they will release just the single versions of the EE cuts. Me too :angry:. These sorts of films tend to get lumped into big box sets. I'd be happy for a box set without all that bloat. How big physically is the box set? Given how popular the EE DVDs were, it's surpr...

Re: LOTR: EE's in HD in 2011

It went on sale for $50 last week(Amazon). Snagged a copy as I highly doubt they will release just the single versions of the EE cuts. Im real curious to see how bad this over saturation of the green palate is for Fellowship of the Ring.

Re: Jade Tiger: IVL(R3) vs Well Go USA(R1)

Well Go has 5.1 and mono option, mandarin. Didn't pay attention to the audio as I was just ripping the caps up real quick.

As far as PAL/NTSC, im not sure. How would I be able to tell?

Jade Tiger: IVL(R3) vs Well Go USA(R1)

Had a friend help me out on the IVL caps. Good to finally get a R1 release of this movie considering the R3 version is OOP. One of my fav's and Im guessing this didn't get the notoriety of other SB movies since it apparently didn't have an English dub for the illiterate to follow along. IVL on top/W...

Re: LOTR: EE's in HD in 2011

It's going for $70 on Amazon right now. Apparently Jackson & Co intentionally boosted up the green color palate in Fellowship of the Ring(I cant remember reading if he did that to the other films). I was all about to get this before I read of the 15 disc inclusion. That is a beyond overkill and espe...

Any idea if there will be any other blu rays down the pipeline? Were there hd masters for 8 Diagram Pole Fighter and Shaolin Mantis?

Re: 1911: The Xinhai Revolution - Jackie Chan, Li Bing Bing

It looks interesting. Well Go USA plans to release this here in the States on the same day as in China/HK. I think thats a first for a US distributor. So does that mean the pic quality/subs will be below videophile standards then? Im solely basing this assumption on how they handle the shaw bros. d...

Why so cryptic about it? Just mention their name here as some of us trade with members on KFC so you would be doing a good service by notifying the public about potential problems. Hell, what does the member's name rhyme with so we can use deductive reasoning? :lol:

Seriously, do these KFC members not have the capacity to learn from past mistakes. I'd hate to see them at a circus or carnival.
