  2. Hope everyone had a great Christmas / Holiday! I haven't posted on this forum in a while and I wanted to give everyone an update on the stuff I've been working on. As many of you know, we had a pretty substantial issue in the last quarter of 2020 with our main supplier for our cases being back-ordered for three months. Eventually I found a replacement supplier who had a limited quantity, substantially higher prices and very long shipping times. It helped me a bit, but it didn't prevent quite a few orders from being delayed. The very good news is that Casetopia, the main supplier I

  3. I want to let everyone know that I've been making some investments into Hong Kong Rescue that will allow us to produce more films and send them out faster. Here are a few items I've purchased in the last week: 1300 cases from Casetopia (now that they have plenty in stock) 1200 discs from my supplier for discs. 1200 sheets of photo paper. A brand NEW additional photo printer (Canon Pixma Pro-100) A NEW 13-Bay Blu-ray Duplication tower. It's arriving Thursday, but it should look very similar to this... We're not playing around in 2021 and

  4. Someone on this board asked for subs from one my projects, which took me weeks to do. I said I sell the MKV/MP4 or a DVD, and that subs are what is all the hard work. After I sent it he replied that we "are a small community of fans" that somehow absolved him from paying. There have been plenty of people that have done free customs but there are also people like HAZ and JAMAL that really did the bulk of these and they charged a fair price for their work. After personally having my stuff copied from ADC (and in a couple of cases with less than accurate subs I made for laughs) and ripped from Yo

  5. Absolutely love this Artwork @KUNG FU BOB.Can we get a Drunken Master to go with this I really hope 88 films get the rights to Drunken Master so we can finally get the Original English dub that Eureka Entertainment missed out on I would 100% double dip just to have that Dub.

  8. Hey everyone. Wish me luck this weekend. I'm moving from Montana to Minnesota! It's a 16.5 hour drive, but will be split up into several days. Once we get all set up there, hopefully I'll dive right back into the classic kung fu and Shaw epics that I was enjoying before. I've had to put much of my movie watching on pause for a while now. It'll be a good move for us, but also I can't until it's all over and done with! Anyways, hope everyone is having a good 2021 so far. I mean, as good as you can these days...

  9. Just wanted to post a quick update... I've got ALL the supplies I need and I'm working overtime to get everyone all the films they ordered. My upgraded equipment is allowing me to produce these films about four of five times faster than I used to be able to, which should allow me to quickly catch up and better keep up with demand in the future, especially as the release of The Killer grows near... Got plenty of supplies as well... 1300x cases... 1200x discs... 1200 more sheets of photo paper... An additional printer working overtime

  11. Just got this in the mail today... The duplication controller will be arriving tomorrow and I ordered enough Blu-ray drives to fill every slot. I have some of them already and the rest should be coming in the next couple of days. With the new setup, and my additional printer, I should be able to produce 100x copies of a film in no time. Should really help me keep up with demand from here on.

With projects like this that include so many different steps and techniques, some choices are somewhat subjective. Some other

  15. A PLACE TO CALL HOME - Li Ching stars in this heartwarming movie with emphasis on the importance of giving children love care and support, with some dramatic moments, and pointers to social problems. Everyone is darling, except for Yeung Chi Hing, and you know he is a lewd mean bastard the moment he enters the room.

  16. Monkey Kung Fu (1979) A B level Shaw movie with no big stars but still the cast , production values and choreography are excellent. Ching Siu Tung was good as the lead and brought nice energy , he kinda remind me of Fu Sheng. The plot is Ching escaping prison after an old master he befriends gives him half of a medal and tells him to go find the other half. When put together, it will lead him to a secret manual. His inmate ( Hau Chiu Sing) joins him on the journey and seems to leave and pop up again whenever the villains show up. The action is the standout. The choreography is cre

  19. I have that and the Mediumrare version as well, but cannot wait for this. It probably my favourite film and needs an official release with the love that 88 have been doing so far. Also looking forward to @KUNG FU BOB artwork for this. Would love something similar to the original.

  20. That's not fair at all !! Most of us paid for Jamal's releases, and recently for yours and for @TheKungFuRobber's releases too, so, these "community fans" should do the same as we do...or go on watching movies without the subtitles...!

  21. When I saw Duel of Fists as a kid, I had thought it was made as a reaction to some events that had happened around the time that the film was released to SF Chinatown. Years later I found out that most releases were delayed by two or at least one year from HK to the USA Chinatown markets. Anyway, the Tournament was most likely wish fulfillment based on the following incidents. What happened was 2 Kung fu "experts" went to Thailand to fight some pros. It did not go well. At all. Then, 4 more fighters came to "avenge the loss of face". It went bad again. The training regimen of Thai boxers shoul

  22. How does ShaOW!linDude celebrate New Year's Eve? By finishing off @teako170's well-written book. Alexander Fu Sheng: Biography of the Chinatown Kid (2018) by Terrence J. Brady How do you know when a biography is good? When it is so well written and interesting that it furthers your interest in the subject person; so that, if they’re a writer, you want to read more of their books, or if they’re a film star, you want to see more of the movies they appeared in. I love a good biography, and without question this is a fantastic endeavor. Meticulously researched and footnoted in its

  26. Today I watched what I think is my number one movie of 2020: Possessor I won’t spoil the plot for those that know nothing about it (try to go in blind) but it’s a smart, brutal sci of thriller that’s incredibly well directed by Brandon Cronenberg (son of David). This one ticked all the boxes for me. I highly recommend it. It’s only $5 to buy on Amazon Prime Video.

  27. Good news for Korean kung-fu fans, as 2 martial arts flicks were included in the restorations that the Korean Film Archive completed last year, 'Wondering Woman with Two Swords' and 'Seoyooki'.

  34. I've watched 4 episodes so far of Season 3, and I am loving it. 2 things that stand out for me so far, the score/music and the humor. Who ever is responsible for creating the music during the episodes has done a perfect job. The music just fits so perfectly and adds so much to each scene . Love it. The humor is so perfect, subtle at times , but actually funny. it's done very well, by both the writers and the actors performing it. Especially by William Zabka (Johnny Lawrence).

  39. BROTHERS FROM THE WALLED CITY Another terrific, totally involving early 80's Shaw crime drama, starring a teenaged Chin Siu Ho, Ko Fei and the ever redoutable Wang Lung Wei. The latter's once again the embodiment of hypertension, seething anger and phenomenal screen presence - his mad dog run here reminded me why I've always counted the man amongst my favourite three Shaw actors of all time! One of the few films I remember being at least partially shot inside the festering slums of the labyrinthine Kowloon Walled City (well, the opening 20 minutes), this is realistically staged, bru

  40. Fatman (2020) Okay, this is a fantastic movie. Mel Gibson kills it as Santa, or “Chris” as he’s simply called. Even though there’s still some “magic” to this world as you’d expect, there’s also much more verisimilitude, with Chris depending on government subsidies and military contracts to make ends meet and keep his shop open. The main storyline is about a snotty kid wants Santa dead, so he tasks his personal hitman (yes, he has a guy on standby) to take him out, leading to a surprisingly bloody showdown in the finale. All I have to say is wow, there’s NOT a Christmas movie like this

  42. It was to fund his retirement if I recall. So I think it was a combination of appreciation and him being in financial trouble. Of course, he later returned to making films so it's possible that he either couldn't bring himself/didn't want to completely retire.

  43. Executioners of Shaolin- I have to see Lau's version of the Shaolin cycle movies as a rebuke of Chang's Homoeroticism. Most of his movies deal with horny, patriarchal kung fu masters who are all about the p%^^y basically. Hung Hsi Kuan basically rapes his new bride, but after that, she is tamed and happy. Chang Cheh's hero would simply not touch a woman . I think there was a deliberate ethos in Lau's films to show virility in the form of having kids and controlling women. I am not saying that having kids is bad, and it never hurts to be the man of the house, just that it stands

  44. DANGER HAS TWO FACES -this marks a serious plunge in quality for director Alex Cheung after his two classic -but non-Shaw - real crime dramas COPS AND ROBBERS and MAN ON THE BRINK (the latter one being my most eagerly anticipated HK blu ray of 2020 !!). There's decent leads with Leung Kar Yan and Chu Kong, but way too much sub-standard acting and pointless hijinks - and mind you, I have a high tolerance level for the mix-up of gory violence and low-brow comedy. But not if the comedy is as naff as it's oftentimes here. Even the naffest moments in any given POM POM sequel qualify as comedy

  45. Knockabout – went in blindly, was surprised positively. I liked the insane acrobatics and the dark turns the story takes while beginning with a lightier, comedic mood. Definitely above average with flips to remember it by.
