The Hong Kong Bluray/UHD Thread

Swordsman 3 is so bittersweet for me. It had all the elements of an incredible classic in the making but the storytelling just.... fell off in the 2nd half for me.

It's a shame because I really dug the aesthetic and what they were going for in the 1st half.

I still recommend the movie overall but there's a looooooot of wasted potential in there.

Any Danny Lee fans? His classic movie Law With Two Phases will be released on bluray by Panorama July 3.

Glad films like this pop up on BD, first day order for me! Not that widely seen or discussed, but this is DL on steroids in one hell of a gritty, dog eat dog action picture.

I love Dragon From Russia!

Link appears to be dead as the site is suspending orders due to Covid.

Anyone got the deets?  Is it region free? Any extras?

Sucks that we have to wait longer now till DDDHouse operates again. I think their product and shipping prices are better than YesAsia.

Very entertaining, I agree. I have a great DVD custom of it, and while this new release may surpass it with its' HD scan, I'm fairly certain it will be inferior with the subs and audio.

I do know the custom you're thinking of, I believe. There's the potential for better audio, but it remains to be seen. Copies mightn't make it out of HK until they can resume postage.

Damn those Panorama don´t come cheap. And don´t go down in price fast it seems. Shanghai Shanghai is a must for me, always liked the Sammo vs Biao bout. Short but sweet it is.

Corey Yuen's 1991 gambling comedy, The Top Bet aka Queen of Gamblers is coming to blu ray from Panorama HK. I don't know anything about this one as I've never seen it but certainly has an impressive cast with Dodo Cheng, Anita Mui, Sandra Ng, etc.

There's been some talk that this might be just an upscale on account of Fortune Star providing the master. I'd be happier with a UK release, hopefully with some extras included.

DAMN, hope it's not. I've just ordered it and it ain't cheap. This one is quite likely to be picked by Eureka, Arrow or 88 I think, as it was released back in the day by HKL. Just couldn't wait I guess. Will post some screencaps and disc info when it arrives, but just got a delay message from DDDHOUSE

I know what you mean, I was ready to preorder the moment I saw the announcement. Kung Fu Cult Master from Panorama also seems to be just an upscale.
