hm donīt think so!

You (RC1-guys ) already have your (horrible?) Bruce Lee Box from Warner (Fox?) , and it includes Fist of Fury #(gloriously retitled as "Chinese Connection").

Furthermore, I have NO idea if HongKongLegends do sell any of their DVD-content.

Box

We also have the MegaStar DTS version box set, which is good enought for me until I go and conquer England.

Damm that R2 version looks soooooo good. Yep too bad for us R1 people

I'm thinking about picking up the DTS version available here. Does anyone know if the audio on the disk is from the original source (original voices and stuff). And how is the film qualility compared to the other versions out there?

Yes those HKL DVDs are so great. I've only got two of them thus far. Once Upon a time... and Dragon Gate Inn. They are excellent. The remixed sound on Once upon a time is very nice, very atmospheric during the rain and thunderstorm and those images .... great


you guys who live in Region one like me can do what I am doing now. I am just using a computer as a DVD player. I have a projector so I just hook up the VGA ouput from the computer into my projector and voila.

Don't dispair yet. You guys who have PCs can buy a cheap DVD decoder card called the Hollywood plus. It has S-video ouput that can be plugged into any regular TV. With card in your PC you can sircumvent the region coding and the card can also convert PAL to NTSC ...

about the original voices: almost NO chance.
As most of the (HK) films at that time, FoF was shot silent and redubbed later.
And as far as I know, Bruce Lee was dubbed by someone else( EXcluding the battlecries) , but Iīm not sure!

The image quality is supposed to be ok, it is cleaned up a little bit, but it hasnot been majorly restored( as HKL did).
Furthermore, it is not anamorphic.
