    My birthday present was a rad BYO book. :-D

    And while I DO like to be negative, I don't like to be negative about Shout! Factory or Bruce Lee. This much is true.

    They're still dancing around the language track issue? Seems to me that's pretty important. The official press release only mentions that The Big Boss has original audio.

    From the press release:


    "• Newly translated English subtitles on THE BIG BOSS, FIST OF FURY and WAY OF THE DRAGON
    • Original Mandarin audio on THE BIG BOSS and the original English dub track"


    From the post on blu-ray.com

    "Original Mono on the first two."

    The press release says BIG BOSS has original Mandarin audio...blu-ray.com post says that BIG BOSS and FIST of FURY have original mono.

    So best case scenario the first two films have original (Mandarin) audio. Way and Game of Death have no comments except in the bluray.com post, they're looking for the audio for WAY.

    Yeah, I read all that, but I thought I'd read more somewhere. I guess not though as I can't find it. At any rate, this still looks to be a pretty solid improvement over past releases. I guess we'll find out more as the release date gets closer.

    It would definitely be good if you read that somewhere...For me, the language is a deal-breaker. At least if Big Boss and Fist of Fury are Mandarin, I'll get the single disc blu-rays.

    Wasn't Game shot in English though?

    And as the Fortune Star DVD of Way had Cantonese and Mandarin tracks we're probably good there.

    Guess it depends on which version of GAME we get. :D

    As for WAY, the Fortune Star DVD has it, but the Shout version that was just released does not.

    I'm not attempting to take a dump on Shout, they've done some great work, but their English only DVD releases...which were JUST released....featured no original audio, unless you count GAME. It was an odd decision to make, and one that understandably irked some people. This is why I'm hesitant to jump into a pricey blu-ray set where half of the films are going to potentially be shitty English dubs.

    No, I completely get it. I was disappointed that there were only English dubs included on the DVD releases too and I don't understand the reasoning behind that unless it had something to do with the specifics of the license.

    I don't think that will be the case with the Blu-ray set though. But again, we'll find out soon enough. It's not that far off.
