    I haven't seen Treasure Hunt but I remember really liking Peace Hotel. Haven't seen it in years.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Wasn't Peace Hotel supposedly heavily re-shot by John Woo himself, or is this just an urban myth?

    Saw TREASURE HUNT theatrically and wasn't too impressed.

    FULL CONTACT on Blu, please!

    Or THE ADVENTURERS (the original).

    Not an action movie, obviously, but maybe someone somewhere is interested.

    Ian, think you meant to post this is the JC thread right?

    More Chow Yun-fat hitting blu ray with the Jun 21st release of Ann Hui's middle film of her Vietnam trilogy, THE STORY OF WOO VIET according to dddhouse.com. I believe the only blu ray release prior to this one was from the French label, Spectrum and that wasn't English friendly, although it did include an English friendly version of BOAT PEOPLE as a bonus feature.

    So I watched the Mei Ah Blu-ray of Full Contact last night. Will post some caps later today. The audio is messy, funny sounding 5.1 mix, the transfer is not great and it kinda looks like an upscale to me. There's another weird thing where the word 'fuck' has been replaced with 'darn' in the subtitles and the word 'Hell' with 'heck' resulting in a very strange line at the end where the line 'You go masturbate in heck!' is used.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!
