Actually bought them from their store in Higashi Nakano, but they do have a webstore too (in Japanese, but with international shipping). They also sell stuff via Amazon JP.

For foreign films you have to grab the IMDB main title name in the foreign language.

However you hit upon one of the big issues with their search engine. Anything that is too generic in a title comes up with way too many search results. Normally a search engine should allow the use of + or "" to help narrow results. It doesn't. Now their "Order by:" would help if you have an upgraded account (checks or year of release would make it easier to find). I don't so it doesn't.

The work around is this: take a look at the URL for the IMDB title: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2088003/combined

copy tt2088003 and put that in the icheckmovies search engine. You now get the Big Game movie.
tried that method for Lackey & The Lady Tiger. it's not finding it :dontknow:

It's dubtitled, and, IIRC, sound's slightly out of sync.

Wolfguy (two copies actually, the other will make a good birthday present for a friend) and The Bodyguard (awesome karate TV show... I just wish Toei had come up with a better artwork. Oh well, can't afford to complain I guess).

I'd get cancelling that Jackie double feature, it's using the incomplete cantonese audio on DM. Piss poor by TT. As for the Eastwood, i want it but i'll hang on to see what Kino have done with it before buying.

Don't know, i've only ever ordered TT discs from Screen Archives and never had cause to cancel.Probably best mailing them,with the news about the audio out i suspect they'll get a few. Of course you could keep your order in and buy it just for SITES and pick up the UK Eureka DM.

Thanks :) I popped them an email so I'll see what they say.

Picking up the Eureka DM seems a good idea.
