September round up of Hong Kong and other Asian movie purchases on dvd and blu ray.
Park Chan Wook's excellent Thirst, a disturbingly fun take on the vampire genre. Featuring an awesome performance from Song Kang Ho as well as probably the best neck break in film history!
Johnnie To's Running out of time, one of my favourites of To's movies gets the blu ray treatment. Look out for my review of the film and the blu ray soon.
I've wanted to see Ishii Sogo's Electric Dragon 80000V for ages, a black and white punk fuelled crazyfest by all accounts.
Miike's modern classic on blu ray, read my review of the film here and my review of the blu ray here
A pre-A Better Tomorrow movie from John Woo, not sure what to expect here really. Woo's stock may have fallen over the years but as far as I'm concerned he's still the man!
Heavenly Kings, I've never seen this but I've heard really good things about it, a kind of mockumentary about a canto pop boy band. This is the director's cut in fancy digibook packaging, it's also rated cat III.
Johnnie To's wonderful Throwdown on blu ray, read my review of the film here and my blu ray review here.
Classic Sammo Hung directed kung fu in The Iron fisted monk, an upgrade for me to the Joy Sales legendary collection edition.
Simon Yam and Danny Lee together again in category III crime flick Twist, look out for a review soon.
