anyone know anything about either of these 2 WONG KAR-WAI produced films?

Anyone ever see either of these two films?:

1. Sediu yinghung tsun tsi dung sing sai tsau
Eagle Shooting Heroes (1993)
executive producer: Wong Kar-wai
http://us.imdb.com/Title?0108074

2. First Love: A Litter on the Breeze (1997)
Choh chin luen hau dik yi yan sai gaai
producer: Wong Kar-wai
http://us.imdb.com/Title?0146745


Anyone see either dvds and can comment on their quality?
I ordered Eagle Shooting Heroes because I wanted to get a 3rd dvd from HKFlix to get the free shipping with an order of 3 or more dvds. I would still like comments on the film or disc before actually opening it. From what I read, it appears to have most of the same cast from Ashes of Time. Sounds fun and ridiculous with some visually stunning images.

The comments on IMDB and HKFLIX were really mixed for First Love: A Litter on the Breeze so I avoided that one for now. Maybe next time I need one more dvd for a special offer.......
Any opinions?

Eagle Shooting Heroes is a fun, wild and wacky film. Lots of name references in it, with lots of moleitau (nonsensical) action in it. Picture is surprisingly one of the better transfers out there for an HK movie, especially considering this is an older Mei Ah film.

Thanks, good to know. what do you mean by "name references"?
If anyone else is interested, it is only $12.95 at HKFlix, especially good if you need a third disc to get the free shipping using the coupon on the DVDTalk coupon page.

what I mean by name references is that if you depend on subtitles, all the characters have very strange names which may make it hard to keep track of who's who. And there are quite a few characters.
