Exclusive Ronin Flix Release

Please note this is a pre-order release that will be available on or around 12/13/22. All items ordered together will be charged at the time of purchase and ship together when everything is in stock. Please place multiple orders if you wish to have items shipped separately as they arrive. All product information, including the release date, subject to change.

Available while supplies last. This is a limited quantity release that will not be reprinted.

Fist of Legend

This limited edition Blu-ray includes a digitally retouched version of the best available high-definition (1:85:1) master, NEW Cantonese Mono, Mandarin Mono, and English 5.1 lossless DTS-HD Master Audio, NEW English subtitles translated from the original Cantonese version of the film, plus bonus materials from the prior releases.

In this tribute to Bruce Lee’s classic FIST OF FURY, Jet Li radiates sheer power and coolness as a kung fu student living abroad who returns home to avenge the death of his master and save his martial arts school.

Starring Jet Li, Chin Siu-Ho, Nakayama Shinobu, Billy Chau, Kurata Yasuaki, Ada Choi, Paul Chiang

Ronin Flix // 1994 // 103 Minutes // Not Rated // Color // Cantonese, Mandarin, or English with Optional English Subtitles // Region Free

Tai Chi Master

This limited edition Blu-ray includes a digitally retouched version of the best available high-definition (1:85:1) master, NEW Cantonese 5.1, Original Cantonese Mono, and English 5.1 lossless DTS-HD Master Audio, and English subtitles, plus all of the bonus materials from the prior releases.

Two best friends and fellow martial arts students are expelled from the storied temple of Shaolin, only to meet again on the battlefield – one a power- hungry general, the other a freedom-fighting rebel, both mortal enemies. Featuring Michelle Yeoh (EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE) and directed by marital arts legend Yuen Wo-Ping (action director on IP MAN 3 and 4), TAI CHI MASTER is a quintessential martial arts classic.

Starring Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh

FAQ

What does 'digitally retouched version of the best available high-definition (1:85:1) master' mean?

A: We have cleaned up some of the major defects in the existing master. Please note however that it is not a new transfer.

What is so special about DTS-HD Master audio?

A: The previous release used Dolby AC3, which is a highly compressed, or "lossy" form of audio. DTS-HD Master audio is "lossless" and provides a vast improvement in overall audio quality.

Why did Ronin Flix create new English subtitles for Fist of Legend?

A: The previous release used "dubtitles," which were transcribed from the english language audio track.  The new subtitles are a faithful translation of the original Cantonese language version, properly timed to match the onscreen dialogue.

Interesting that they have cleaned up the original masters. Wonder if that mean the wires in Tai Chi Master have been removed? 

I’m guessing it refers to dust busting and field blending.

I applaud the efforts they’re making, though I don’t see it as the holy grail in relation to a definitive presentation.

Corrected subtitles, Cantonese mono... this sounds too good to be true.  I reached out to Ronin's "contact us" page on a whim to ask whether the movie has the long-missing epilogue text, and if the deleted scenes are the Taiwan version's unique content.  I doubt I'll hear back with a definitive answer, but who knows.  This has potential.  Of course, if 88/Eureka have this in the works in the future, I'd hold off and let them work their magic.

I wonder if any insiders around here can say if we should wait to see if a label in the UK is working on these? @Irongod2112?

As of right now no, but I will be looking into UK rights for sure! :)

If anyone takes the plunge, I would greatly appreciate details on how it turned out.  If it has the long-missing epilogue, if the deleted scenes are the stuff from the Taiwan version, I'm all in.

It seems to be the same features that were on the Dragon Dynasty discs. The difference here is updated A/V and subtitle.

If someone wants this, but doesn't want to order from Ronin directly, a pre-order (with a February 7th release date) has shown up on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Jet-Li-2-Movie-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B0BP9B8WYY?tag=bluray-056-20&

This Amazon release date is more than a month after the Ronin release date?

Yeah, that is pretty common with Ronin's releases.  In fact the time between a title going for sale on Ronin's site and a wide releases is usually much longer.

Lol. I cant believe they are using dubtitles as a sales point. No mention of it being the full version of the film so this indicates will essentially be the same as dragon dynasty versions. May be worth having for fong sai yuk 2 on blu for a cheap price.

Shame.  Ronin has done some pretty solid releases (like the now OOP Hardware.) 

 

Since these are limited to one pressing, I wonder if (hope that) these are on a short license from whoever owns the part of the Weinstein catalog that these ended up with. A last minute cash grab before the rights expire and the films can be picked up by someone with the time to do them right.

Just curious if anything was looked into?
