Tsui Hark - Where is He on DVD??

It's crazy - I can't find a bunch of his movies on DVD and it sounds like they certainly deserve to be. Films like The Lovers (OOP Universe), Love in the Time of Twilight and The Blade (which is on a crappy R2 DVD) are nowhere to be found and I don't understand why. Is he being a little too much like Stephen Spielberg or George Lucas in this respect? I consider him one of the best directors in HK (and anywhere for that matter) and I just want to know why his stuff isn't all on DVD.

Weird I've never had a problem buying off of ebay. It's no different then buying from Half.com or a Amazon zshop. That particular guy has a good rating. How is he dishonest? Just because some people lie in their descriptions does not mean everyone does. No offense, but I hate ridiculous generalizations.

No offense taken - you're right - however, I've just had nothing but bad experiences with ebay getting ripped off and paying way too much for stuff, so I decided to just stay away for my own good. Some people are better at swindling than others - I'm one of the others... I can't swindle anything and I just get swindled too easily cuz I'm too trusting.

I agree, I just wanted to show you they were out there. I will look elsewhere, and let you know
