    I had no idea this was in such bad shape. Was Louis upfront about it? I bought it being unaware of the mold problem.

    EDIT: I see he mentioned it was "moldtastic", so he did warn us... sort of.

    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    I need to rewatch this one.

    Sad that the Chinese don't take care of their cinema. The negatives of Bruce Lee's Game of Death was left out in the sun and covered with pigeon shit.

I guess if these are the only elements left for the movie, this is it. It's not going to get better - and that's unfortunate because this is a pretty great film.
    LMAO at all comments sucking off Justin on MV's fb where customers who bought it are saying it's an "amazing job with transfer" & that the transfer looks "beautiful". I checked other reviews and they sure walk a tight rope around the horrible condition of the print and one that is more sanctimonious about the onscreen killing of a snake than the crap looking print.

    Technically speaking THE DEVIL and GAME OF DEATH are both Chinese films but they're from two different countries.

    I got the blu-ray today and ... no, I'm not gonna kiss anybody's behind and tell them it's a fantastic print - because it's not. But it is fantastic that they scanned the original negatives and released it on blu-ray. There's nothing else out there apart from old video tapes (that are more rare than - in the words of Damon Foster from old issues of Oriental Cinema - getting laid at a dike slumber party). My own Japanese vhs is so crappy the autotracking has given up on it.

    And it's in Chinese! Finally!! Finally!!! No more English dub for PingPong or whatever his name is. I'll never ever listen to that shitty dub again! Hallelujah!

    Are the subs new ones or burnt into the source material?
