Bought The Raid 2 and Lady Vengeance on HK BR today. Lady Vengeance should be the full colour version I believe, as opposed to the fade to B&W UK version.

Iron Eagle III for, you guessed it, Sonny Chiba, and Video Nasties because I always wanted to see the documentary.

I'm a little behind on posting purchases.

Dakota, In Old California and The Plainsman I have seen, though I plan on rewatching The Plainsman soon. Dakota is surprisingly OOP and I watched it as soon as I got it. A bit weak even for a Republic feature though. Just did a count: I have seen over 63 films with John Wayne in it (not quite as high as my 89 film count with Jackie Chan.)

The Revenant will be the next one watched out of this bunch.
I got The Last Frontier mainly because of the director Anthony Mann who I'm a big fan of.
Keoma is purchased because I need to improve my Italian western watches.

I saw the last Hobbit in the theater and wanted to get around to the extended version. I saw the extended release to the first Hobbit which I'm glad I got.
Of course I saw Avengers Age of Ultron in the theater.
I have not seen Fantastic Four yet. I am curious which may be deleterious but I do like giving some films a chance.
Poohall Junkies is OOP, but it is a pretty good "pool" film. While not up there with The Hustler, the scenes with Christopher Walken are quite fun (check them out on youtube).
Yes I have a pretty big collection of Doris Day movies (as well as Sinatra.)

Ip Man 3 has been watched. So has Notorious Eight. Unfortunately it ended up being a bootleg. There are a couple of main type of bootlegs out there, most of them end up being Region Free. However this one did not have the menu so it has none of the extra features. It just had the movie/subtitle choices/mandarin/Cantonese tracks. Only one track was ripped (funny enough most of the other bootlegs I've seen of IVL have all the tracks so the menu is included :D.) Funny enough I saw Mark comment about Notorious Eight on an old post at KFF.

Pre-orders

The best two Japanese rock films of all time, interestingly both are Roman Porno productions. Red Violation (1980) is a terrific docudrama about the real rock band The Devils. Easily one of the best band films ever made. Rolling on the Road (1981) is a jaw dropping sleaze epic about asshole rock star Yuya Uchida, played by Uchida himself, and very well directed by Tatsumi Kumashiro.

I've seen all but California Suite and Unconquered though 2010 has not been seen since VHS days.
Spotlight had won Academy's Best Picture award so I had to see it since I've seen all the other winners.
I'm a big Bob Hope fan so I saw these as soon as I got them. I'm also a W.C. Fields fan.

Oh Yeah:


The Freshman is an upgrade. Already have seen the film several times. Harold Lloyd is quite underrated in my opinion (I'm a huge Buster Keaton fan BTW as well.)
Repo Man is an upgrade. I have a previous edition that is a license plate box set.
Crumb is an upgrade, one of my favorite documentaries of all-time (up there with Hoop Dreams.)
Bottle Rocket I have seen, but first time buying. I've seen all of Wes Anderson's films.
Charade is an upgrade. Love that film.
The Sabu set is completely unseen, so I'm quite looking forward to those. He is in The Thief of Baghdad which is a great English film.

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.
