Interesting that I've gotten a shipping email from Arrow for my copy. I guess they're just not gonna wait for the street date for the US release? Supposed to arrive Saturday, Monday or Tuesday.

For those of you who either cant wait for the box set to reach them or are struggling to get the funds for the box set and are eager to see the films included, they have all now been added to the arrow video streaming app.

Do you have a direct link because there's nothing on Arrows website about it when I used search.

Thank god theres no new extras so Im more than happy with Eurekas

I didn't know that or I probably just bypassed it because I prefer period kung fu flicks with Sammo. But I just looked on HKMDB just to see who else stars in this and Jesus, its like the Chinese version of Expendables. There's a whole trove of well known stars. Just got to see Hwang Jang Lee in another role. Probably wouldn't recognise him without his wicked haircut from Hell'z windstaff.

Oh right. Probably why then. I figured Arrow was Arrow, no matter which side of the pond you're on. Seeing as Arrow started in Blighty in 1991, you'd think we have priority with America trailing behind us.

Nearly £40 quid! You're having a laugh. Thought blu's were quite cheap these days. No way am I paying £40 quid!.

It looks like instead of doing a US$ to GBP£ conversion they just replaced the $ with a £.

Oh right. Still with postage it would cost that much anyway. It's not released till next year anyway so maybe Arrow Blighty will release it over here.

Eureka has the UK rights and have already released the same disc in the UK, it's just the cover art that is different as far as I can see.

Yes mate. Already saw the cover art. I somewhat dislike the later Chinese movies with Western actors. I'm more of a period style setting person. On the other hand I didn't know there was a weath of stars in this movie. Bolo Yeung and Hwang Jang Lee are two stars that I wouldn't have imagined.

Just received my Shawscope volume 2 box set and switched it to regional A watched the Mad monkey kung fu scene where the guy swings the monkey around and smashes it against a tree blood everywhere totally sickening tbh but it’s there if anyone wants to know and I’m from the UK

A real monkey? What is this cannibal holocaust?

No, Cannibal Holocaust also a coati, a turtle, a tarantula, a boa constrictor and a pig killed on screen in addition to the monkey. Bad joke I know.

Now I'm against animal cruelty as much as the next person, but Cannibal Holocaust is an AMAZING film. And the director said later he regrets the animal cruelty.

I'm definitely interested in Millionaire's Express as the Dragon Dynasty DVD release (as Shanghai Express) is very expensive depending on where you're looking.

A bit late to the party, but I just ordered ShawScope Vol. 1 as it was on Sale for £72.
I guess I will have to wait a bit longer for Vol. 2.
