Default The Hong Kong DVD Thread

I know many people buy HK dvd's of Western movies but I mainly buy HK Films and occasionally a Japanese one (English subs).
As with Japanese dvd's I really like the covers.
The look of the menus and the typically wrecked English subs also provide me with the full HK movie experience.

Here's some from my collection,curious about other member's collections.

I'd really love to see a lot more HK films, I've only owned/watched a few because of my Jackie Chan Collection.
What would you say are 'MUST WATCH' films? Doesn't matter what genre.

I'd start with A Better Tomorrow then The Killer and then Hard Boiled.

Some other suggestions to start you off:

Encounter of the Spooky Kind (1980)
Zu: Warriors of the Magic Mountain (1983)
Mr. Vampire (1985)
Yes, Madam! (1985)
Royal Warriors (In the Line of Duty) (1986)
A Chinese Ghost Story (1987)
Black Cat (1991)
Story of Ricky (1991)
Naked Killer (1992)
Swordsman 2 (1992)
The East Is Red (1993)
The Heroic Trio (1993)
Black Mask (1996)

Btw this is like Imdb but about Chinese film only: google hkmdb

Great thread you got here. Back in the VHS days I spent every spare dime on HK films. All ordered from HK. Couldn't get enough of em. Sadly I gave away all my VHS when DVDs came around. Looking back, I wish I could've found some place to store them. The first DVD I ever bought was Dragon Inn. I have gone to Hong Kong twice on vacation and took empty suitcases with me to be filled with DVDs. Still have not got near as many as I had on VHS. When I get a free minute I will take a photo and post em.

I had the HK DVD's of KILLER SNAKES and HUMAN LANTERNS but I sold them before I watched them.
