Following on from part one
First up are a couple of freebies, Yesasia are running a promotion at the moment where if you buy four 80's HK movies, you get a dvd free. The dvd keeps changing, as I type this it's Johnnie To's Vengeance but when I placed my first order it was Derek Yee's Triple Tap
Triple Tap received a lukewarm reaction upon it's release but I remember reading a glowing review from Michael @ Hong Kong Rewind, at some point I would have picked this up anyway, so not bad as a freebie. On the second order the film had changed to...
Chang Hoi Ching's Virtual Recall, a movie I had absolutely no intention of ever picking up. One of the worst dvd covers I've seen in some time too!
After my review of Long Arm Of The Law, I was eager to see the three unrelated sequels and despite a long delay in them arriving, thanks to the Taiwanese edition of Rouge holding up the order (they still couldn't get it!), they finally arrived.
Credit where it's due, for all the bitching I do about dvd cover art, I love the Long Arm 3 cover, very striking.
Back to the bitching now.
Another truly terrible cover, what were they thinking? Danny Lee's Law With Two Phases, Danny won best actor for his role in this film at the 1985 HK Film awards. I've been interested to see this for a while.
Lastly for part two, David Chung's Royal Warriors starring Michelle Yeoh and Michael Wong (what a pose on the cover!) a real favourite back in the VHS days this one.
Keep an eye out for part three coming soon.
