Filmart blu rays mentions a running time of 122 mn from what I saw on a site.

Is there aq link showing the TVP blu ray, please ?

From what I understand, the German company WVG was not supposed to be releasing their Blu-rays as English friendly, and when Celestial discovered it, they put an end to it. Hence starting with HUMAN LANTERNS they ceased including English subs/dubs.

 

the 3 new releases all have english subs :cool

This is confirmed @saltysam? Did you get them all? If so, well I am very happy to hear this for all of us fans, but they were not allowed to do that. I wonder if there will be any repercussions, or if they will just get away with it?

Shame then that they released HUMAN LANTERNS without English subs. I'd have loved to have that on Blu-ray.

i received all three today and immediately checked them out. All have subs and i should add they are all Region B locked. bargain at £24 for the three delivered to the UK!

 As for Human Lanterns i now suspect there was an error during the disc replication which left off the english subs and being a budget company it was more cost effective to release without and reprint the covers deleting the english subtitle mention. Just a theory, but these have now released what, 10 movies and 9 have the english subs. Seems to me the only thing they've tightened up on is the region locking of the discs.

ordered all remaining from own collection except emperor and water margin. Haze zero interest to see those again. Secret service of imperial court is still possible to happen. Would seem almost likely as this batch was hardly last.

TVP announce a joint project with Filmart to do a 4K release of New One Armed Swordsman.

I wonder if they will be creating a new uncut master with the proper night time filters applied? A 4k remaster, huh? Interesting!

In what ways is the TVP dvd release of Sacred Knives of Vengeance better than the version shown on the Celestial channel?

In one way, the picture quality is much better and doesn't have burned in subs. But it doesn't have English subs. I believe NoKUNGFUforYU was working on a project putting English subs to the TVP, but I think he was having timing problems or something.

I hate to ask a stupid question like this on here, especially with the comparisons up above. How good of a quality are these books? I'm actually really curious on grabbing some as I haven't seen some of them in years. Thanks :)

^Alas, no English subs are listed. Hopefully 88 will release it or asian version is then one to get for non-germans. 

Pity, covers A and C look terrific and nice list of extra features...

They are excellent!

For the sake of full disclosure, I now do some of the original cover artwork for TVP- The Vengeance Pack. But I was a huge fan of their high quality releases before that happened, and collected their stuff.

I'm happy to inform everyone that the above statement is incorrect. Regarding TVP's upcoming Blu-ray release of RETURN OF THE ONE-ARMED SWORDSMAN, it will include English subtitles.

No English dub though.

Cover C imo is winner

I double-checked with them before saying anything, just to be certain, and was relieved when they verified that there are English subs on the release.

Cool! Glad you like my cover. This is one that I'm very happy with how it turned out. (Still, like everything I do, in hindsight I can see little things that I could've done better. Ah but, live and learn. ☺️)

Very nice art there, Bob!

Glad to have confirmation about English subs too.

Thank you brother. Have you seen the other two covers they produced for this release? They are pretty damn cool.

Yeah, me too. Looking forward to watching this film in style.
