Oh yes!

Blood Feast (the Odeon/Something Weird one cos its uncut and "goes with" the Master Of Gore boxset, if you get me! Still keeping the Tartan release if only for the soundtrack option.)
Once Upon A Time In China trilogy boxset (the HK Fortune Star release, which is just gorgeous. Cheapest I could find it was 32, but I managed to snag it in an eBay auction for 8.58 inc P+P! :) )

Is this a native HK release or a UK release? Its just havn't come across it at all. I figured the only UK release was the HKL one (which is excellent as usual!) :)

It's a HK set. I had read bad things about the HKL set and thought the design of the box looked shabby and cheap (as with a lot of HKL releases) whereas this looks like this:

Yeah that looks like a neat set. I guess the early HKL designs were a bit poor (inc. once upon a time in china 1), with that weird border they had. The later releases were a lot better looking though I thought. And the picture quality/extras (especially the Bey Logan commentaries!) have always been superb.

I particularly like that the box is a thick, solid box! Not like the Rizla thin cardboard you get on most UK boxsets.

I haven't seen these films for AGES! Looking forward to a good Wong Fei Hung sesh later in the week.

Right! Off to order The Butterfly Murders!

You got the whole trilogy for 3?? Lucky git! lol

Its a great set. Brilliant picture quality, all new subtitles, tonnes of extras. I'm a huge HKL fan, they were easily the best UK Asian action cinema distributor. They seemed to put so much effort into each release.
