Chinatown Haul + Mail Call

Picked up a few more movies in C-town this past week. Hit up the usual joints and brought home some pretty good stuff. Among the goodies are a DVD of AT THE END OF DAYBREAK, starring Kara Hui Ying-hung in her multiple award winning 'comeback' role. Can't wait to watch this one! Also picked up a legit DVD copy of Eric Tsang Chi-wai's 72 TENANTS OF PROSPERITY, and DVD's of the CAT III Taiwanese ghost drama AMAZING STORIES and Kevin Chu Ga-wang's nudie drama MY WIFE'S LOVER. Also a few bargain bin DVD's including Anita Yuen Wing-yee in the Japanese produced HONG KONG NIGHT CLUB, Sylvia Chang Ai-chia and Josie Ho Chiu-yee in FOREVER AND EVER, Karel Wong Chi-yeung and Lily Chung Suk-wai in the ultra low-budgeter BE OUT OF CONTROL, and 2 buck copies of Fruit Chan Goh's HOLLYWOOD HONG KONG, Ray Lui Leung-wai, Mark Cheng Ho-nam, and Alex Fong Chung-sun in GUNS OF DRAGON, and the Jade Leung Chang's crap fest MONEY LAUNDRY. I have the last three in my collection already but I couldn't pass them up for only $2.

Not much on the VCD front though. Only 3. Did find a nice VCD 's of Pauline Chan Bo-lin in A WILD PARTY and Johnnie To Kei-fung's debut flick THE ENIGMATIC CASE, starring Damian Lau Chung-yan and the lovely Cherrie Chung Cho-hung. I also picked up an untitled CAT III period piece. Will have to do some research on it to figure out the title, but since it's CAT III, the research should be fun!

And on the "Damn you Chinatown! You did it to me again!" tip, I picked up what appeared to be a legit copy of Zhang Yimou's A SIMPLE NOODLE STORY containing English subs. But English subs were no where to be found. I shake my fist at you C-town! But how can I stay mad at you? Look at that punum!

And on to the mail. Mrs. Mail Lady brought me a package of two rare HK VHS. The 1993 Thailand produced EROTIC JOURNEY, starring ultra cutie Chan Wing-chi. Ms. Chan has starred in a butt load of great CAT III productions in the early 90's and she is drool inducing. And nudity aside, has a very natural and breezy look. Should have been so much more. She was wonderful in FALSE LADY. Check that one out. I believe I posted the VCD a month or so ago? EROTIC JOURNEY also lists Dick Wei and Melvin Wong Gam-san in the film but seeing as this is a Thai produced heyday CAT III flicker, it might be a smush 'em up (See Devil's Love post below). I will definitely let you know though. Also in my tiny package is a film called WONDER GIRL, starring musclewoman To Gwa-fa. I have been unable to find info on this flick as of yet and it may go by another name? I will definitely be watching this one and, again, I will definitely let you guys know.

And on a side note, EROTIC JOURNEY and WONDER GIRL push me over the 2,400 HK movies owned mark. So, yeah. There's that. Good lord where has my life gone?!
