Re: Comparison thread for the Shaolin Temple trilogy?

For parts 1 & 2 I'd like to see screen shot comparisons of mei ah vs. mei ah remasters vs. eastern heroes etc

Obviously original audio, and genuine subs a must

Re: Drunken Tai Chi - R1 US/Miramax DVD

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of

Some comments and small spoilers (third paragraph): However, I absolutely can't stand Deannie Ip . And that's because of Crying Heart. And she's just one of those actresses who is always so 'suffering' in her roles, but really going OTT with it. Whever I see her face, I just zap away. :( Delete you...

Depends with you're looking for. I have the deltamac DVD and its an all round solid release. The tape is meant to have a different shot at the end or something that's why I'm looking for it. :)

Re: Is it worth getting a 3D BD player?

Not sure about 3D being 'the future', I might go 4K in a few years, or something, when the price comes down and theres some actual 4K content. You're right about the image seeming dimmer with 3D Shing, its just the same when you watch 3D in the cinema. I never knew that about melatonin LS, what is ...

Good point about led vs plasma!!

I'm really not convinced about led. And the blue light is meant to impede melatonin production. Really not healthy for evening viewing!

Regarding the bluray the Korean blu has HD audio for the Mandarin, but the English subs are for Hard of Hearing so they include extra stuff you don't need onscreen
