I didn't buy too much this time out. I was in C-town about 2 weeks ago and stock wasn't replenished. I managed to get my hands on two new flicks. The multi-directed 2009 comedy TRICK OR CHEAT and the much anticipated Jeff Lau Chun-wai film parody JUST ANOTHER PANDORA'S BOX. Now, I've mentioned before that I don't advocate bootlegs and if i do happen to come across/ purchase one I will ALWAYS buy the original. So, seeing as JUST ANOTHER PANDORA'S BOX was just released I understood going in that this was a booter. But it was a nicely displayed boot that 'claimed' to have English subs. Alas, I get home and throw the flick on to see the quality and....wouldn't ya know it? No subs. The transfer blows as well. Not the first time I have been conned by Chinatown. Oh, Chinatown! You bitch whore!
Anyway, a few of the other DVD's I picked up were dirt cheap copies of Wong Jing's SPY DAD, Peter Chan's Maggie Cheung flick ALAN & ERIC: BETWEEN HELLO AND GOODBYE, and the Donnie Yen actioner CITY OF DARKNESS. And what's a C-town shopping experience without some VCD's? A bad C-town shopping experience. This weeks VCD haul includes Lau Ching-wan and Season "Mumps" Ma in SILENT LOVE, Kara Hui Ying-hung, Billy Chow Bei-lei, and Ken Tong Jan-yip in OUT BOUND KILLING, the CAT III period skin piece CRAZY EMPEROR, the Joseph Kuo Nan-hong Taiwanese martial arts flick SORROWFUL TO A GHOST, Ben Ng Ngai-cheung and Strawberry Yeung Yuk-mui in VIOLENT GIRL, and 2 unsubed episodes of ATV's HONG KONG CRIMINAL ARCHIVES; HUSBAND IN COOK starring Yvonne Yung Hung and BLOODY BOX.
Also picked up an old mouse pad from Tai Seng Entertainment. This find was about a buck in the bargain bin at NY Music. I'm sure upon initial release it cost $40 bucks. A little Tai Seng humor.
