Is All for the Winner ever going to be on DVD????

I was wondering if Stephen Chow's "All for the Winner" will ever be on DVD. Anyone know anything?

VCDs

VCDs of "Out of the Dark" and "All for the Winner" are available from http://www.sensasian.com . "All for the Winner" is letterboxed, while "Out of the Dark" is Pan N Scan.

The Banquet apparently is out of stock or out of print, but I do have the DVD of it.

Don't forget Stephen's classic movies Sleazy Dizzy, Dragon Fight, Triad Story that need to be on DVD as well.

Anyone know who owns the dvd rights to the misssing Stephen Chow films? I want to do some letter writing to the concerned parties.

I would like to write to them about it too.

I just watched part of Sleazy Dizzy on Vcd.

I have the Banquet on DVD too.

chances are that the company that owns the HK VCD rights also owns the HK DVD rights, although that's certainly not true all the time. But it's a start.

That's where I picked up mine and a few other discs from. They have pretty good service as far as I'm concerned. This was also the only place I could find Fruit Chan's Made In Hong Kong. If you haven't seen it you might might to pick that up too. It's a great film with Ssam Lee in it.

The subs are burned in and Just have the Chinese and English. I have only seen two vcds(This and Battle Royale) and the think the quality was relatively about the same. Like most burned in subs they are obviously hard to read on white areas, but I can't really remember any times that were too bad. If you want the movie pick it up the vcd.

All For The Winner DVD

Good news, bad news. All For The Winner is out on All REGION DVD. Bad news it's a WA mandarin dub only release and it's OOP.

All for the Winner

OOP = Out of Print.

WA discs are made for Mainland audiences, I believe, thus only Mandarin (dubbed) audio track. I have the vcd and it's not bad at all, worth picking up until a DVD comes out (w/Cantonese track).



Out of the Dark - didn't care much for this one

Sleazy Dizzy - hmm, haven't heard of this one, never even come across it. How is it and what's it about? Recommended or not?

Oh thanks! You know us newbies!


I have Sleazy Dizzy on VCD. Watched the 1st disc and never finished it. It's ok I guess.

I want to watch Out of the Dark again. I only remember it vaguely.
