Friend will be in Hong Kong - DVDs to pick up?

My friend is heading to Hong Kong and offered to pick up some movies while she's there. Any suggestions to LE/CE's etc, that are worth me telling her to pick up for me?

Thanks!

The John Woo Collection by Fortune Star
(Bullet in the Head and The Killer) Digitally remastered with DTS.

The Infernal Affairs Trilogy

Also if you can find it, Hero Director's Cut.

A Better Tomorrow Trilogy by Fortune Star.

The DTS remix of Fortune Star Killer is poor but the original stereo track is included. It is pretty good for Bullet in the Head, though.

I'd get some hopefully cheap Shaw Bros Celestials.

I recommend

Shaolin Temple
Five Shaolin Masters
36th Chamber of Shaolin
The Five Venoms

My parents just got back from Hong Kong where I had them pick up The John Woo Collection, Once Upon a Time in China box set, and 4 Shaw Bros movies: Shaolin Temple, Five Venoms, Flying Guillotine, and Executioners from Shaolin. They bought them at HMV, much cheaper than most online places, $20 for Woo, $30 for OUATIC, and $11 for each Shaw Bros. DVD.

Any more suggestions?
