When did you most recently visit Hong Kong? I think some of the books are out of stock now, so you lucked out in getting them -- or were very good in tracking them down! :)

Hi YTSL, It was in March around the time of the festival, unfortunately I missed the few films I wanted to see as I have to book well in advance and I guessed wrongly as to when the fest would be on this year. Normally I have a little leeway, but I only had a week or so this time. Nevermind!

Out of interest which ones are out of stock?

Hi again --

Had thought the older books, like Hong Kong Cinema 79-89, were.

Oh, so you came for the HKIFF? Hope you enjoyed it -- although this year's had not so many Hong Kong (and Japanese) offerings as before.

I live in HK and I also Love HK Cinema.
I found your blog and I find it very interesting and useful for many things you've shared.

I have also been hunting some rare vcd/dvd's around in all sort of shops,malls and second hand cramped rooms.. However I wanted to ask you if you could kindly share which are your favorite places where you go for hard to find stuff.
I am mostly a big fan of Girls with Guns and Action from 80/90s, but some are really hard to get of course, because nobody would invest a cent to re-print those gems.
At the moment out of all the spots, the most juicy has been: Sino plaza and a store in Temple St. which comes really as big surprise cause the spot is one of the most touristic ever in HK.

I hope to hear from you soon.
Please let me know if I could also help any how to you too.

Have a great day
