Recommended Posts

I've never heard of them but the simple fact that they haven't responded to your e-mails should ring warning bells. At the very least this company will have poor customer service. Use them at your own risk.

I browsed around the site and found many links not working, no shopping cart system, and the contact information was not complete. It didn't look like you could even order with a credit card, no veri-sign logos anywhere, etc. I would NOT order from them, IMO.

Completely agree. :ooh:

This is an old thread I know but there needs to be an update of the companies still in business or new, reputable, companies out there for HK DVDs and what not. As people have already pointed out, Poker Industries and HKFlix are gone - I've found quite a few others cited here that are also not in operation anymore. Tai Seng has changed drastically and I don't even recognize the site anymore - but I admit I rarely bought from them given their high cost DVDs and shipping which was no day at the beach - although they were legit and honest. As a side note, I think this is a wonderful sticky and I've found some British sites I never about. Thank you to everyone that has contributed info on the HK DVD stores. :bigsmile:

Many IVL`s are now out of print and very hard to get these days. Bidding sites like ebay can get you lucky but prepare to dig your pocket quite deep. Time to time some lucky fellows find treasures from 2nd hand stores, those are worth checking out regularly.

I have heads for sale on ivl oop but it`s available on thai release. Those are legal genuine items without slipcover or extras but movie is most important. I have ordered twice items from http://www.thaimegamart.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=01&Product_Code=UNDVD-8+8549660+09568&Category_Code=090250 and they are reliable company. 1st time shipping was superfast and 2nd time it took a while but they had trouble office was in flood area so understable.

Price of movies is very wallet friendly:bigsmile:

I've only used Poker Industries,HKFlix (both way back),Play-Asia and DDDHouse,mainly because they put the value on the customs form in US$...my local customs have trouble telling the difference between US$ and HK$!

Does anyone know which currency Yesasia uses on the customs form? ;)

I'd say avoid fivestarlaser.com. I've got two films on order there, both paid via PayPal, but no delivery. PayPal says the payment is complete, but my order status still says waiting for payment. They eventually replied to an email, saying they'd received payment. Still no films though. And my order status didn't change...

dddhouse have been good though, refunding OOP titles.

I usually buy my DVDs on Buyoyo, DDDHouse and eBay, but recently I tried a taiwanese online store called Agogomall (http://www.agogomall.com) and I really recommend it. I ordered two Shaw Brothers DVDs from Deltamac (Lady Professional and Empress Dowager) and they arrived in perfect shape.

The bad news is that they only send orders by EMS; the good news is that they carry lots of hard-to-find Shaw DVDs, like "Oily Maniac", "Secret Service of the Imperial Court" and "Crimson Charm".

Am I allowed to mention my own site?

Online E-Commerce site selling DVDs' from:

Link doesn't work

Edit: I found the website But the reason the link doesn't work is because you typed the link incorrectly!

Comments after quickly browsing I would find it useful to have DVD information like anamorphic widescreen, the aspect ratio (for example 2.35:1) , audio information (for example original mono, 5.1 etc), English subtitles off the top of my head… And do you do international deliveries? and Where the DVD was sourced and what distributor (for example Hong Kong IVL)

All my DVD's mention subtitle information, and you CAN search by distributor on the left of the page..

As for tech specs- 99 percent of HK DVDS are widescreen with DD 5.1 surround sound by default. Also HK import DVDs are cantonese/mandarin

Greetings brothers,

I apologize for not logging in more often. As my children get older, the less extraneous time I have.

I'm in Atlanta now, Chamblee, to be specific. Can I buy kung fu DVDs locally? Where? I beg of you! I simply want to hang out, if possible. I want to be in that atmosphere AGAIN.

What do you all think about a thread that tells us where to buy kung fu DVDs locally? It would be nice to know where all the spots are in the US in particular, the world in general.

I'll start: Dach Oriental Imports in Memphis, Tn. One of my ABSOLUTE favorite places in Memphis to literally hang out. I bought my first pair of nunchaku, Japanese and Chinese swords from Dach's. I also purchased a free standing kick bag from Dach's. Yes, they rent and sell movies! The vibe in that place is wonderful!

Dach Oriental Imports

4491 Summer Ave.

Memphis TN, 38112 USA
