    Gentlemen, please be civil with each other (speaking to everyone, no one singled out). I understand that this is a touchy subject, but lets keep our cool. Some people on here have known (or known of) Ricky Baker for decades, and many were first introduced to Hong Kong cinema because of him and Eastern Heroes magazines and videos. So he means a lot to them, and comments about him should be kept to the facts, not just wild conjecture or personal attacks. On the other hand, there are people on here that have experienced some very negative things with him. I know and believe and respect people on both sides of this. We decided that- as unpleasant as it may be- this is a valid subject for this forum and should be allowed to be discussed here, but please do so in a respectful manner. Thanks.

    Vintage behind-the-scenes from The Water Margin 水滸傳 (1972) DVD featuring Chang Cheh, co-directors Wu Ma and Pao Hsueh-Li, action directors Lau Kar-Leung and Tong Kai, plus David Chiang, Ti Lung, Yueh Hua, and Japanese actors Tetsurō Tamba and Kurozawa Toshjo. Cool factoid: Tamba played Tiger Tanaka in the 007 film You Only Live Twice (1967).

    Hey guys I hope you are all enjoying the Sammo set & Fate of Lee Khan. I'm reaching out again for fans that would be willing to help out on upcoming Eureka & 88 Films titles. There are ALOT of titles coming up so I'm looking for people who can do Chinese translation Cantonese & Mandarin. I'm also looking for people who have experience with timing subtitles so even if you don't speak the language we can use your help. I'm also looking for audio / video guys to help out as well. So all you amazing guys who have done customs in the past please feel free to send me a PM. If anyone thinks they have something to offer to help these releases please do not hesitate to send me a PM. I will be working hard on making sure the upcoming releases will be as good as they can be! 2020 is going be quite a year for HK films!!

    Yes, it is all region. Watched it in full this morning, and I just want to say what a great job they did with this. For a 40 year old theatrical print, it cleaned up really well. Put on the commentary track for a little bit too and Worth shows what a fan he is. I would have liked a longer interview with Lee Tso Nam though. I really hope this does well, that fans support it instead of bootlegging it, so they can continue to restore these classics.

    Just started watching the blu ray. My god, if the second release is The Hot, the Cool, and the Vicious, and looks as good as this, I would be in heaven.

    When i first arrived in HK, a big eye opener was how so many people smoked and still do, actors, directors, stuntmen etc In HK, China, Korea etc, smoking is still something of a social occasion, and cigarettes are still cheap compared to the west there was also when i arrived cigarette advertising on TV< blatant advertising in moves,how many times have you seen Winston Cigarettes popping up in HK movies? And then Marlbaro and other companies started sponsoring music and movies in the early 90's, Saviour of the Soul, Gameboy Kids etc feature some blatant cigarettes are cool moments!

    Lee Khan is a stand alone story. You don't need to see any other film. There's more character and intrigue than action. But I think it's a classic.

    I can’t say I blame you. It’s so well choreographed and executed I love watching these guys together, Prodigal Son is awesome too for the same reasons. I really don’t believe we’ll ever get martial arts combat scenes like this again. People just aren’t trained (tortured) like these guys (and many others) anymore, and for good reason!

    For all waiting to get the link to the movie who have paid a donation, I must apologise. I get the impression that the upload is cursed. It's been stuck at this very unlucky number for ages. Anyway so I'll redo the upload and hopefully everything will be fine. Sorry about the delays caused for everyone who just wanted to watch the movie.

    Hi guys, new member here so thought I’d add something. Have watched all three sammo films from Eureka! now and although it seems most of the hype was for Eastern Condors, I found Magnificent Butcher far more satisfying in terms of choreography. I love Eastern Condors but the intricacies in the action of Butcher just blow me away every time I see it. My favourite scene is Yuen Biao vs Lam Ching Ying at the Po Chi Lam school. Flawless! It’d been a few years since I last saw any of these films and was blown away at how beautiful they all looked and sounded! Thumbs up EUREKA! and all the fans that got involved to make this the release it is. There seems to be many great martial arts releases coming our way at the moment and they’re really reinvigorating my love for martial arts/HK cinema so thanks guys. Shout out to 88 films too for picking up some great Jackie chan titles the Lo Wei movies were great and I’m sure the next four Jackie releases will be even better!! As I’ve said these releases have reignited a flame in me for these films which has led me to this forum. Thanks for having me guys am looking forward to reading and learning from you all.

    Going back and reading this old thread is fascinating... the rumors before Celestial released everything! Everyone had an inside scoop of why movies would never see the light of day.
