    88 Films SB Blu-ray

    Correct. Only the Shaws can't be shipped outside the UK. Not all slips are exclusive to 88 Films. If you check the product description for each title on Amazon then it will tell you if a slip is included. Every title that I ordered from Amazon did come with a slip at the time. Not sure about now. It's too early to tell but very likely you will get one as this will be the "first wave" of orders.

    Device used for viewing Kung Fu Fandom

    At home I use 2 different desktop (depending on which one that is available - when kid not using). Windows 7 w/ ISP monitor or Windows 10 w/4K monitor. On the road, I use either a Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Android Pie) - used mostly for domestic travel. ZTE Trek 2 HD (Nougat) for international travel. It is GSM unlocked, so I just pop in a SIM card in the country I am in. Have an iPad but hardly use it (gave it to the wife). Once in a while I use my phone (Moto Z3 - Pie) but don't like typing on it when viewing the forum. I have a few Moto Mods so it will be Moto for me for a while. Also Landscape viewing on the desktop & portrait on the handhelds.
  3. The events to this movie is said to be more of a prequel/prelude to the story/stories of the previous "MK" movies that we have seen (i.e. Monkey King causing havoc in heaven).

    Of these which is your favourite? (With Poll)

    For me it was between Shaolin Temple & Showdown at the Cotton Mill. I had to give the nod to Shaolin Temple.
  6. Well Go USA is also releasing Ne Zha in 4K on March 3rd. I saw it in IMAX 3D, so hopefully the 4K release will also be awesome.
  7. How much is the popcorn in theaters you go to? Last December when I took the wife and kid to the movies this is what I got for them ere: Combo hotdog/soda for $5 as I had a promo coupon otherwise it would be: Popcorn about $8 for medium. Soda about $6 for medium. Then: Water $5 (99 cents every where else) Hot dog $6 Cheese Sticks $8 Chicken tender & Fries about $8 We saw 2 movies so there were multiple orders on some of the items - spent over $100 for that outing. Whenever I go by myself, I usually bring my own.
  8. Pick 1? Ha ha, it is difficult for me to pick a top 10.

    Our friend @DragonClaws

    Fixed that title for you. Very likely he is busy, I myself have been very busy over the weekend and didn't have much of a chance to post.

    Fox Hunting (2020)

    I saw the preview for this on one of the Chinese movie channels, not sure if it was for theatrical or web only release.
  12. Looks like it is being added to the list of movies for CNY. Already confirmed for CNY are. Jackie Chan's Vanguard Dante Lam's The Rescue Dectective Chinatown 3 with Wang Baoqiang,Tony Jaa & Zhang Zifeng. Zhang should help pull in the younger crowd. Lost In Russia w/ Zheng Xu. This one is kind of a trilogy after Lost In Thailand & Lost In Hong Kong. Oh Wait, there was also Lost On Journey too. Zhong Guo Nv Pai w/ Gong Li Bonnie Bear: The Wild Life - Animation movie Legend of Deification - Animation movie Very likely there will be more movies added.

    Warning About Smart TV's

    Not only that but hackers can harass you via your smart TV but also harass you by accessing your devices via Facetime, Facebook, Messenger, WeChat, Skype, when you use free Wifi , playing online games on PS4, XBox One, Wii, using Google Home, Amazon Echo Dot, etc, etc, etc. Anyway, my TV gets channels like MSNBC and the likes so I don't think it is a smart TV, it's just a fake label they placed on the TV. Now back to my X-mas shopping, I hope to be done by the end of the week.
  14. I think it is Revenge of the Shaolin Master. The end fight did take place on a beach. Chen Sing is in it but he didn't play the Villain (he did fight Lung Fei on the beach). I think it was Tsai Hung who fought Tan at the end causing his death.
  15. That scene is from Masters Of Tiger Crane.

    Svaha: The Sixth Finger (2019)

    I gave that one a watch over the weekend. A lot of people/sites list it as a horror but it is more of a mystery than a horror.
  17. Whether it is released, not released, unedited or not - the unedited version will still make it way to China via pirating. So it's not a matter of if people will get to see it, but how much money will it make on the mainland - people will still get to see the unedited version (via pirating or other means).
  18. Not sure if it is true or not but......... There is a report that this movie will not be release in China unless some edits are made. It had previously gotten the green light & was set to be released next week Friday (Oct 25th). The article claims that Shannon Lee filed a complain with China's National Film Administration about the negative portrayal of her father. https://variety.com/2019/film/news/quentin-tarantino-once-upon-a-time-in-hollywood-china-release-halted-1203375052/#article-comments
  19. Do a search, the click more search options, then narrow it down, example: "content title only" or "all of my search terms", then click search content again.
  20. Mine have been dispatched - I should get it by mid week.
  21. Twister Kicker is a Taiwanese basher which is also known as Tornado. I use to have it on VHS.
  22. Completely agree that a lot of these movies did not get a national/wider release during that time period. However, when they played they were not just playing in "rundown" theaters like you see in some of articles/pictures posted in this thread but also in "regular" theaters. Most of what you see in those pics are I would say more of a "resurgence" to capitalize on the popularity/success of a movie/event. There is also a great article posted by @DragonClaws, which covers the drive-in scene as well as World Northal (which distributed a lot of the Shaw's movies in theaters). That article was written by Chris Poggiali who use to be a member here - not sure if he is still here or goes by a different name. Here is another article on World Northal, also by Chris. http://templeofschlock.blogspot.com/2012/08/updating-imdb-world-northal-edition.html Also those of us (who had a Chinatown in our City) also had Chinatown theaters that would also show these movies.
  23. It's currently on Netflix for those interested. I should have listen to myself. Anyway, I watched it and that that.
