    88 Films SB Blu-ray

    GREAT list of titles!! Heart of Dragon badly needs some KFB love!
  2. @Irongod2112 would it be cheeky to ask for a transcript? Always wanted to know what was being said!
  3. @KUNG FU BOBPre-ordering TONIGHT!! Just beautiful, beautiful work, brother!
  4. @ShaOW!linDudeThank you so much for the links, bro - I'm loving everything I'm reading and hope it's ALL true!
  5. My copy of CRIME STORY has just arrived and it's a fantastic release. @KUNG FU BOBthe artwork really is the cherry on the cake - just beautiful, brother!
  6. Briefly checked this last night: only had time to look at EASTERN CONDORS (possibly my fave HK film ever) and I can only echo the reviews online: this is a beautiful, beautiful transfer that looks and sounds as if it were shot yesterday. Just stunning. I’m amazed and overjoyed that something like this has been released.- huge kudos to you and the team that has put this together. @Irongod2112 I honestly don’t know how this could be any more impressive than it is. If any of you are wondering whether or not to grab this, do it now – especially if you’ve never seen these films!
  7. Mine should be here tomorrow. Those of you who have your copies - any thoughts?
  8. I'll eluicidate. I was hugely excited for this but, for me, it did not deliver, beyond a very good central performance and the occasional bit of bleak humour. Felt very much like a patchwork assembly of parts from other, better films (the 70s WB logo was a giveaway, I guess). Kudos to DC for letting it get it made and I hope it's success leads to more of these off-centre comic book films getting made but I really did not like it at all.
  9. Just saw it. It's crap.
  10. As I recall, the "bad guys" are given much more depth in 2, 3 and 4 then here. This one just says "evil Mexicans", and that's poor writing, at best. I can believe this one has more dialogue - but apart from Rambo's internal monologue at one point (which was more or less a rehash of what he says in Rambo 4 DC) - it's all terrible. Man, it sounds like I hate the film, doesn't it?
  11. Cutting this opening was very damaging, I think. From what I’ve read, Stallone cut several versions of the film, and decided to go with this, shorter one and I really can’t figure out why. My biggest problem with the film is that it’s trimmed down to barebones, leaving no room for anyone apart from Rambo to really breathe. The bad guys especially are reduced to (possibly racist) cannon fodder, with no depth given to them at all. And don't get me started on the "fridging" of a certain character - just unbelievable laziness. I have no doubt it’ll be longer on blu ray (a la The Expendables) but I can't see if anything that gets added will redeem it, for me.
