Trip to China - What to pick up?

I am going to China within the next week and some ideas for movies to pick up.

They don't have to be exclusively chinese movies, just as long as they have English subtitles.

Not particular about genre.

Please include any LE's that China may have.

Thanking You.

I wouldn't make much effort looking for DVDs. 90 pct will be bootlegs and what you find that are legit won't have English subs.
If they are, you can buy it through yesasia.

Alternative shopping ideas if you must: Pick up a EVD player or a VCD player, at either end of the spectrum, you won't find one at home. China recently announced that they will ramping up distribution of EVD titles by the end of the year, but no guarantee on how many will be subbed.

CDs: Even if they're boots, who cares? Good place to find Faye Wong's OOP titles.

Where are you going to be travelling?

I am going to Tianjin for a few weeks on business, but will be spending the weekends in Beijing, so there will be plenty of time for shopping around.

I wouldn't mind even a couple of bootlegs for samplers if I haven't seen them - a try before I buy scenario.

First time in China, so not much idea what to look out for. Will definitely look into the EVD players.
