Rats. The two HKLs I most wanted -- Project A and Zu Warrors -- aren't included in the sale. Anybody know of anywhere else that might be offering these at sale prices?

They never include new releases in their HKL sales.

I'm not sure how long exactly, but I would venture to say at least two weeks based on past experience and other sales they have had.

If you like "Heat"-style gun battles, 2000 AD has two of the best ones ever filmed.

Just ordered Drive and Once Upon a Time in China III - if funds weren't short I'd've ordered a few more.

One thing I don't get...These are supposed to be nice, high-quality versions of these films, aren't they? Why, then, does it say that, for example, Once Upon a Time in China is dubbed in English with no subtitles? Is this really the case? Accckkk! I was going to buy it, but now....not if it's dubbed only.

I'd suggest Drive, 2000AD, Purple Storm... Good solid dumb action movies.

It has both audio tracks like all of their releases. Bensons World is probably the worst site for information on the dvd specs.

I wouldn't call Purple Storm a good old dumb action movie. 2000 AD yes, but Purple Storm has a pretty damn good story with some great characters in it.

I just ordered Drive and was about to order Legend of a Fighter but decided not to since it's cropped. What do you think the chances are of HKL re-releasing Legend of a Fighter in its correct aspect ratio like they are doing with Drunken Master and SitES? If there's a possibility of that happening I think I'd better hold off and wait for a better disc.

Are you directing that question towards me or are you referring to the titles they have on sale at bensonsworld?

I belive that Red Wolf is the only two-disc HKL set on sale.

Good god. CyberDemon, I owe ya. I've been wanting Red Wolf for the longest time and I can't believe it's one of the titles in the sale. Yeehaw. And yes, I realize the movie's supposed to be mediocre at best, but the second disc's documentaries with Sammo and the rest are supposed to be fab and I'm dying to watch them. And for $18 I'm thrilled, heh.
Also nabbed Police Story 1 and 2 finally.

For those new to Bensonworld, they come highly recommended. My previous orders have all gone smashingly, even to the US.

Lokise,
Do you understand Chinese?
If not, be warned that the subtitles on Disc 2 of Red Wolf may not work on your DVD player.. this is a main complaint of this DVD release...
