Re: What Have You Just Ordered or Received?

Police Story 1 & 2 Boxset (Eureka) - Blu Ray, had to order from a 3rd party as Amazon sold out and I thought they wouldnt get any more copies (the set is limited after all). There *may* be a replacement program with fixed discs (because of the wrong mono soundtrack etc), lets wait and see what Eurek...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

The Cable Guy: 3/5 Dark Jim Carrey comedy is quite funny, but has a fairly nasty, twisted streak at times too. I wasn't a fan of the Ace Ventura and Dumb and Dumber stuff... couldn't sit through it. Hugely popular though. The Cable Guy I really enjoyed, but it was considered a box office dud. ($47 ...

Thanks :) I was confused by the 'Directed by Jackie Chan' credit on the poster.
Trying to pull in every sucker they could!
:D
What was Jackie's first movie as director? I thought it was Fearless Hyena but could be wrong.

King Kong (2005): 4/5 Overlong but visually spectacular remake/tribute to the classic monster movie. The beautifully realised sets of depression era New York work so well, some great action set pieces and Andy Serkis gives a remarkable performance as Kong (Naomi Watts isnt bad either!) While she's i...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

I just youtubed the trailer for this. Christopher Lee was a great actor but playing an early 20th century Chinese guy - oh dear.
At least he spoke with his natural voice.
The voice over uses the term "half-caste" (?) in the trailer - how did they get away with that?

Lady Snowblood - Love Song of Vengeance: 4/5 A good movie, but feels more serious than the first one and not as much fun... it has a real historical event as its backdrop and I thought the police/Government were complete bastards They burn slums full of poor people in order to erase all traces of a ...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Vanilla Sky (2001): 3.5/5 Pretty good but I think I prefer the original. Tom Cruise's character is too much of an asshole to make me care too much what happens to him. Even though I hadnt seen Abre Los Ojos in some years I could guess some of the answers and puzzles here. When David's face is disfig...

Naked Poison 2 (2002, Hong Kong) internet 2/5 Because you demanded it! With nothing in common with the first one, other than a return of Sophie Ngan (and Co Co Chow), this story doesn't even follow any of the same ideas as the first, instead concentrating on some kind of Memento rip off, where Soph...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

As a long time comic book reader, I enjoyed it almost as much as the first. Cable (Josh Brolin) was cool as hell and Domino was hot ( :love: ). I thought the jokes were funny, and the cameos good, but as a comic book reader and American film fan, maybe it was geared more toward that audience. Still...

Chungking Express (1994, Hong Kong) youtube 5/5 Every few years I watch this, usually when something triggers my memory of it. Like Valerie Chow in 'Freaky Story'. She plays the stewardess in this, the cop's girlfriend who leaves him, that has the bra and long airline skirt on in the flashback apar...

Re: DVD clear out. HK & some Korean and Japanese films

Hey,
Which DVD of Eastern Condors do you have, if its an HK release is it anamorphic?

I'm sure I remember seeing Sassy Girl years back (like in 2002 or so), really cute film :)

Deadpool 2 (2018, USA): 4.25/5

Very funny comic book/superhero parody, really enjoyed it - lots of in-jokes and fourth wall breaking, and the Bond-esque title sequence is brilliantly spot-on.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) (cinema) - 4/5 I think I understood this a bit better than the first time I saw it. The visuals, music and scope of ideas is just amazing. The ending shows David being "reborn" - I think? But slightly before that, what were all those trippy lights and coloured landscapes...

Magnificent Bodyguards (Lo Wei, HK - 1978): 3/5

Wacky period adventure featuring Jackie Chan, American indians, evil monks and music stolen from Star Wars, quite good fun.

Recieved a CD from Ebay but the case was cracked/damaged on both sides like someone had either been playing football with it or sat on it :( Maybe it had been damaged in transit.

Re: What asian film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Which one do you think represents the film best? The bright red blood seems at odds with the rest of the muted palette of the Arrow transfer :dontknow:
Maybe that was closer to how the film looked in the 70's, it's 45 years old not a modern movie
