Where to pick up HONG KONG LEGENDS releases?

It's a shame that majority of great asian cinema DVDs are haphazardly slapped together with no thoughts to quality. Though only one major studio, HONG KONG LEGENDS, that consistently rerelease these travesties into quality productions. However, HKL is only available over in Region 2. Anyone know any US online retailer that stocks this studio's releases?

No, but a few are getting released in the US at bargain prices and are said to include the same bonus materials as the R2 versions except for the Bey Logan commentary. If you are a HK film fan, those commentaries are essential.

Problem with majority of Region 1 releases are that no thoughts are given to quality as well. Even worse they are being released with dubbed version with no subtitles or separate original language tracks.

Well, for anyone who cares, HKL has a special right now. Majority of the titles are available for 9.99. Shipping to the states is 2 with 50 pence for each subsequent item.

It was announced recently that HK Legends had made a deal w/ a domestic R1 distributor and that several of their discs would be released in R1.

Also check out the international forum, where HKL releases (and where to buy them) is discussed frequently. There's a recent thread about HKL titles at CDwow.net. Although, they don't have a lot of HKL titles, they have a few good deals, including The Killer-HKL for around $14 shipped (w/ MasterCard coupon).

Edit: The CDwow thread is here.

HKFlix.com and Pokerindustries.com are two that come to mind. Both are reputable. But if you're willing to buy from a UK retailer, you might get them at a better price.
