Well I'd avoid Warriors Two if only for the remixed audio. Wait for the Fox release.

The Panther toons are overmatted 16:9

Can't really help anymore than that because I wouldn't buy any of them...

Go get Gladiator! :D

Mark when was Human Lanterns made? Isnt it 1982? In which case the language is Cantonese. :) Doesn't go purely by date, although the majority of 1982 productions were Cantonese. The IVL DVD had Mandarin only, so I'm wondering if the Cantonese listing is accurate? The HKFA list the original release ...

But then you added the wink so I think you're taking the P. pfewf! I'm not actually. The wink was to represent the fact that so few people like The Medallion. I'm making myself sound like a fan. I'm not. I just thought it was OK for what it was (and bearing in mind the post-production chaos). Aroun...

Just to add.... Death Duel, Human Lanterns and The Magnificent Trio have all been passed without cuts by the BBFC... At '15', '18' & '12' categories, respectively... The language for Human Lanerns is Cantonese, which should prove interesting if correct (it could easily be a mistake...) The running t...

Well, I noticed that some had included both Asian and non-Asian films in their lists, but that would be too difficult... so I decided to go for a top ten non-Asian job... but that was also too difficult to narrow down so I ended up just typing a short list... At least it gives a rough idea of what I...

Elvis - The King

Three new No.1s

Half-dozen top five hits in the new millenium.

The King is back... but more importantly what's your fave Elvis song?

I have a few bubbling at the top, but will wait to see what else is suggested, lest I influence anyone... ;)

Hammer Horror

Been looking for a couple of the Anchor Bay Draculas, but they're now OOP. I got Scars of Dracula which is still licenced. Anyone heard anything about reissues of Satanic Rites of Dracula or Dracula, Prince of Darkness? There's an R2 of the latter, but it has no extras and is apparently crap quality...

OK. I did laugh out loud once. When the old lady falls off a wall. But that maybe my offbeat sense of humour. I can think of about 30 Jackie movies better than this one and that includes The Medallion!! ;)
