Which film is your LD, Dodo?

A SERIOUS SHOCK! YES MADAM!



And altho they're UK releases I'll post them here as they ARE HK films and also these releases are the best English friendly releases for ANGEL ENFORCERS, JUST HEROES, and PRINCESS MADAM.

Devil Fetus and Seeding of a Ghost LD's in the pic. I still have close to 100 Hong Kong LD's in my collection.

A few hours ago a Swedish poster on another forum posted about how he's just bought a LD player and around 50 LDs but unfortunately he broke the player on his way home on his bike. That's so sad.

Sad, yes...One of the main problems with LDs is that you don't know where the hell you could fix a damaged player...

Miltos, those 3 UK laserdisc releases are the best English friendly releases you can get in the world!!

JUST HEROES: Long version. Uncut. Letteboxed. New proper subtitles. The HK LD is the shorter, cut cinema version. There is also a French DVD that has the uncut print but without English subtitles.

PRINCESS MADAM: Fully uncut. Somewhat letterboxed. English subtitles. There is no other proper release of this.

ANGEL ENFORCERS: Letterboxed. English subtitles. Missing 2 seconds. It doesn't exist on DVD and while the HK LD is uncut and letterboxed it doesn't have English subtitles. I can certainly live with 2 seconds missing when I get subtitles in return.

The 3 UK releases are also on VHS.

I've had a good look at your blog and, woah, you've got one cool collection there!

One thing I miss is titles tho! It's difficult to read the English titles which are often written in a small font size and if you're not familiar with the covers you're lost. A pity not to know what you're in awe over.
