    No word on any home video releases or anything yet, but this just popped up on youtube.

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Good to see Boxer's Omen in there, I seem to recall Calum Waddell mentioning that Celestial didn't have an HD master of that one last year.
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

    Here's the list from the AGFA site. I'd upgrade B.M. 2 & BOXER'S OMEN. Wish KILLER SNAKES or more horror films were listed. Which martial films would be recommended? Ya know, especially wild & violent...

    THE 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN
    THE AVENGING EAGLE
    BASTARD SWORDSMAN
    BLACK MAGIC 2
    BLOOD BROTHERS
    THE BOXER’S OMEN
    THE BRAVE ARCHER
    BUDDHA’S PALM
    COME DRINK WITH ME
    CRIPPLED AVENGERS
    DIRTY HO
    THE DUEL
    THE EIGHT DIAGRAM POLE FIGHTER
    THE FIVE VENOMS
    GOLDEN SWALLOW

    Don't know if these will ever be released on BD but the two that stick out are BOXER'S OMEN & of course, HUMAN LANTERNS after WVG Gmbh fucked up on that one.

    These are from theatrical prints that have been donated to AGFA, I think. Not new restorations from negatives. I could be wrong, but I know they have all these films in their catalog and have been looking for something to do with them.

    So no blu-rays. This is just for theatrical screenings. But I've seen their print of BOXER'S OMEN, and it looked great.

    VENGEANCE is a stabby, bloody masterpiece, MAD MONKEY KUNG FU is hyperkinetic madness, THE FIVE VENOMS, MASKED AVENGERS and BLOOD BROTHERS are full of bloody, comic-bookish action.

    Avenging Eagle and One Armed Swordsman are my favourites on that list.

    Dang... My two favorite Shaw Bros. flicks -- MAN OF IRON and THE DRAGON MISSILE -- are not on that list.

    Yeah, theatrical. I read that but it didn't stick when I posted.

    yeah, no plans for BD releases for now but hoping down the line these see the light of day on physical media.



    Best bet to see some of the few SBs 35mm prints available in my area is Tarantino's New Beverly Cinema since the scandal ridden CineFamily shut down last year.

    if you're a fan of THE DRAGON MISSLE & region locking is not an issue for you, then you should pick up the upcoming BD from 88Films.
