The gf and I were in C-town last night for dinner with cousin 'R' and some HK movie shopping. We hadn't been in Chinatown for about 2 months because we have a lot of things in the hopper and we're trying to save some money. So, I was only planning on maybe picking up a few newer titles and maybe a handful of bargain bin garbage. No such luck. As you can see by the above pic, I went large. Spent approximately $150 and came back with 24 posters, 15 laser discs, 14 DVD's, and 10 VCD's. I'm weak. I just couldn't resist. A few of the newer titles I picked up are LITTLE, BIG SOLDIER, TRUE LEGEND, BAD BLOOD, 14 BLADES, and TREASURE HUNTER. The older titles, some DVD, some VCD, are: LOVE @ FIRST NOTE, FRACTURED FOLLIES, I WANNA BE YOUR MAN, TILL DEATH DO WE START, THE FIRST TIME IS THE LAST TIME, FOX SPIRIT, WHITE HAIRED DEVIL LADY, and the Shaw Bros. drama SUNSET, directed by Inoue Umetsugu. A few of the laser disc titles: AH FAI THE DUMB, FIRST LOVE UNLIMITED, HAPPY TOGETHER (the Max Mok version), ORGANIZED CRIME & TRIAD BUREAU (x2), CAUSE WE ARE SO YOUNG, and TOUCH AND GO. Couldn't pass up the laser discs. They were a buck each! (thanks for the reminder Ian! I shall now blame you for my $ woes.)
As for the posters, they are mostly of newer films from the past few years. I hope to eventually get ALL of them up on the blog. Some of the posters: CONFUCIUS, MAD DETECTIVE, KUNG FU CYBORG, WARRIORS, RED CLIFF (including a gigantic wall banner of Tony Leung Chiu-wai!!!), ON HIS MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE, WRITTEN BY, ACCIDENT (x2), NIGHT AND FOG and TRUE WOMEN FOR SALE. There are others and I hope to show them to you!
Where are all the Alabama Asians at?
