    What is the most recent Shaw Brother's film you've seen?

    The problems I have with this movie is the lack(s) of tension(s). Once the characters are crippled the rest of the movie becomes kind of dull to me. Again, the fight scenes are intrinsically excellent but the characters don't have enough charisma to make it epic. And the flat musical choices can't help. But there's another problem, like for the Five Venoms, the title announces a badass movie, but in the end it's just a drama / thriller with some action sequences. A good thriller, but just a thriller.

    The Crippled Avengers. As for The Five Venoms, I’m not impressed. It’s technically very good, but not as epic as some other Zhang Che movies. So, to me, it does not live up to the legend.

    Hard boiled HK Blu-ray

    It was upscale shit indeed, so it seems to be the same master on this one I’m afraid. But I only read true-hd, if it’s a new sound remastering, that can be cool, but it’s not very likely. Let’s hope the « remaster » is a real one this time.

    I can’t see an improvement over the dragon dynasty version. I will get it for the True Hd 24/96 audio track, that can’t be anything but a delight, the sound effects in hard boiled are incredible.

    Asian DVD Club is no more...

    Not just mainstream to be fair, but only official releases, which includes many movies already, perhaps not in the best version but one can find many old school titles. They don’t allow bootleg in the rules, and I get their arguments regarding that rule.

    For sure, but that's one of those movies with a what the F. title But, accurately, Dragon Boomerang would have sucked so bad... Missile for sure is badass alright.

    Two « deadly flying device » movies by Huo Meng- Hua: - The flying guillotine. Great movie with good plot and character, a bit repetitive I must say. - Dragon Missile. Highly entertaining, the script is light but pleasent, great characters.
  9. Berserk by a talented director like Miike, and more Mecha stuff like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, but not produced by hollywood greedy morons. I’m surprised that Michiko e Hatchin hasn’t been ripped off by hollywood by now, it’s very metoo propaganda bullshit compatible, but it can be very interesting if well done by a japanese director.

    Devil's mirror 1970

    I stand corrected, I misread. But that original casting could have been very interesting.

    I have this movie, but it's a difficult one to get (officially, but bootleg are somewhat easy to grab). There is a young Sammo Hung playing a drummer. Fun one, an Early Sun Chung movie. Special mention to Shu1 Pei4 Pei4 who is awesome!

    The unbearable lightness of being. The style is superb, but I’m tired of romantic and sex stuff, it’s a pointless and boring topic. But again the style is fantastic. The human stain by Philip Roth. Fantastic novel describing very accurately the hypocrisy of the new PC world.

    Yep. The movie was even worse than the book, which is quite an achievement. Even Michael Fassbender sucks in that one.

    All Poe's poetry and Novels - Still astonishing, one of my favorite author, the Raven is a masterpiece. Jo Nesbo's snowman - Terrible, poorly written and full of clichés. Alexandre Dumas's Count of Monte-Cristo - Splendid and epic novel. Time they are a changin' but they can't touch such immortal novels.
