    Hi all which is best out of these.


    Battle Creak Brawl
    Snake in the Eagles Shadow
    Gorgeous
    Who am I

    Also - are there any other lesser known Jackie Chan titles that are available on UK DVD and really good (inc. quality of transfer). I've got Young Master, Armour of God, Drunken Master I and II, City Hunter, Wheels on Meals (is that right?) and Police Story I, II and III.


    Just trying to make the most of the WH Smith 3 for 2 offer!

    Cheers
    Alex

    Georgeous is a bit poor.

    Who Am I has a great fight towards the end.

    I particularly like Project A.

    That's a good one.

    Where did you get the Police Story films from, how much and what is the quality like?

    I have Mr Nice Guy whish is okay but only paid £10 for it brand new so can't complain!

    Not a jackie Chan film but can strongly recommend Iron Monkey, Drive, Hitman & Black Sheep Affair.

    I will prob purchase New Dragon Gate Inn next (for its swordplay) and Eastern Condors (for Sammo!)

    I also like Jackie Chan films I have Rush Hour, Mr Nice Guy, Armour of God and Shanghai Noon but for some reason City Hunter didn't really appeal to me - I don't know if it was the tongue-in-cheek streetfighter scene?

    Also, Island of Fire is out with 60 min of spec features but I haven't seen it so can't comment on it.

    Hi Chandler
    The Police Story DVDs were from Chinatown, here in Manchester. There's a couple of vcd/kareoke(sp?) shops in there. They had these + Young Master + Meals on Wheels for 16 each.

    Zero extras, ordinary quality (although still far superior to any vhs copies I've seen). I was actually hoping for the speach to match the actors as it was the first time I was not enduring dubbing. This is still not the case, though, in either the mandarin or cantonese versions. Ah well :(
    I'm still hoping that the uk ones will as I haven't got round to seeing them yet. (que someone to let me down).

    Thanks for the recomendations.
    Anyone seen all of the first 4?

    Cheers
    Alex

    This is to do with MANCHESTER and its China Town. I shop there fairly regulaly for clothes but have not ventured much further than the Armani shop in King Street and the railway station.

    How do I get to Chinatown and were will I find the shops selling the DVDs?

    Chinatown
    You're nearly there when you're at the main Armani store.

    Keep going up King Street. Swing round to the right on Spring Gardens and keep following the road accross the tram/bus way onto Charlotte Street. You are now in China town - the bulk of which is on the right.

    The main VCD/DVD shops are towards Princess Street. One is called New East Consoles (Jap game import business pretty much killed by easily obtainable pirate copies, shame) on Princess Street and the other is down some steps below street level on Faulkner Street. They're not amazing but it can be fun having a root through.

    Have fun :cool:
