This is great news! I don't love Legend of the Wolf but I may pick it up to support the genre.

There's been an 'English friendly' German bluray out for a while.

It seems I'm not up to speed on Blu Ray releases. Thanks for the heads up.

The German bluray had the exact same badly-timed subtitles that was on the DVD. Plus the covers on both the German and Japanese blurays are terrible. Maybe we might get a decent one for the Hong Kong bluray (and perhaps well-timed subtitles too).

Will grab Woo Viet and Eight Taels. Was especially hoping for a HD release of the latter, since Painted Faces got one.

be warned that the HK Bluray for Story of Woo Viet is cut by 8 Minutes to include Mandarin Dub. French Bluray is cut but no English Subs... :(

Dragon in jail will be released soon. Saw this on vhs days(think during then liked about every modern day hk flick as those were quite hard to get and did not see that many ultimately) and some years ago when got thai dvd did was not exactly exciting viewing experience.

Fans of Andy Lau may still want to check it out if not seen flick or do upgrade.

Just wondering, does The Witch from Nepal have any blu ray release? This film hasn't featured prominently on home media for whatever reason.
