Re: What Have You Just Ordered or Received?

No, serious. It's on the back of the slipcover (which isnt sealed) and I'm not sure if I can peel it off without ruining the case, thats all.

There's a sticker on the slipcase (over the barcode) I'm scared to take off, why they didnt shrink wrap the whole package and just the BD inside is anyone's guess.

The Snowman: 5/5

Raymond Briggs' animated classic. Why this seemingly isnt available on BD in it's original form (OAR, Raymond Briggs intro) I've no idea. You need to track down the 1998 US DVD for that.

Recieved: Spongebob: The First 100 Episodes (DVD Box set) This is a newer re-release (2017 I think), discs are stacked ontop of each other which may be annoying. I thought I'd recieve the original (2009), oh well All 14 discs are in a slimmer case (about the thickness of 3 UK BD cases it looks like?...

What does otaku mean?
Opium and the Kung Fu Master was a really good movie, interesting to see how it uses a real historical event in the story

The Medallion was the US version of Highbinders right? Maybe that's better? I don't think I've seen it (or don't remember).

Raymond Chow dies at 91

RIP :( https://variety.com/2018/film/asia/raym ... 203018267/

Will we ever see someone like him again launch so many important and influential stars?

The Bourne Legacy (2012, USA): 3.5/5

Not as good as the first 3 movies, but liked this better than the fifth film (Jason Bourne). It starts a bit slow (what action there is, is tense) but the second half is mostly a chase movie

Vengeance of a Snow Girl (Lo Wei, 1970) - 2/5 Lavish period adventure in which the lovely Li Ching is a young woman out to avenge her parents death (and cure her hypothermia). Found it quite slow in parts. Mostly it's done in a serious manner too, but later in the film our heroine/hero have to retri...

I remember Gorgeous - Shu Qi is adorable in it and the theme song is cute :) The Hand of Death AKA Countdown to Kung Fu (1976): 3/5 Early John Woo period adventure featuring a young Jackie Chan in a supporting role. Pretty good with effective, slightly brutal fight choreography by Sammo Hung. A funk...

Wasn't the uncut/R rated version released in cinemas? Such a shame it never made it to DVD, BD etc.

Magnificent Bodyguards (1978) rewatch: 3.5/5

Decided to watch this again (deciding to thin my collection), this is entertaining, surprisingly good fights and a couple of plot twists - there's even a song. It looks like it had some old-school 3D (?) shots here and there which look odd now.
