I think we ought to make a new thread about our VCD collections. In fact I just did:

You're right, they're great. I just wish they would list shipment by ordinary mail as an alternative. Using a courier means you can't buy for very much without being slapped with a customs fee due to the bastard EU import limit.

Would be a good option yes, all though DHL is really fast with shipments which means you'll have it within 3/4 days.

I know. And the guy behind the store, I forget his name, is really friendly and helpful.

I only own three but am not opposed to getting some more!  Wolf Devil Woman was one hell of a film!
And that is a monkey of a film! (meant in a gooood way!). :lol: WOLF DEVIL WOMAN is definitely one of my fave HK films. I also have that VCD. Have you listened to the Mandarin track? Check it out, the sound is much better and the music completely different (better). The music in the English dub is mere elevator muzak. Too bad there's no subs.

I watched about half of it with all the plugs in and I was super fucking confused as to what the hell was going on. So I heard both audio tracks at the same time, but then someone told me to unplug one hehe. The Mandarin track did have better audio though I agree there.

LOL. Most HK VCDs actually have two audio tracks. On most newer dvd player remote controls you can chose to listen to the sound in stereo or only from the left or right speaker (in which case the sound from the one audio is played in both speakers, i.e. for instance you get left speaker sound in both left and right speaker).

GOTT IM HIMMEL!!! I just bought this!!!

The legendary Mai Ah VCD. The only version that contains the original "board room ending".







NB: Before anybody *informs* me about this: I am aware the ending is on a couple of DVD versions (JoySales + HKL) but extra material doesn't count in my book!! This is the only full version where it's IN THE FILM.
