    Just watched Kung Fu Hustle, from my Limited Edition box set - and I'm sure the "leather" case is faux leather a la the Japanese Dances With Wolves release. However, I digress... I thought the movie was incredible - a real tour de force. Excellent image, good sound, in dts, and simply phenomenal cinematography and in my opinion makes The Matrix 2 and 3 look like Tom and Jerry! Superb fun.

    Just had to share :smashin:

    Couldn't agree more :smashin:

    Those who slated or didn't like Shaolin Soccer beware though since the humour is comparable and probably not the kinda film for you :eek:

    Gotta love that hand of Buddha :rotfl:

    You have me interested Sigismund, where have you sourced this film from? I can live without the fancy case for a good price :)

    Great stuff Mark, I bought this on the strength of the trailer and it's sitting downstairs waiting to be watched. I also bought Shaloin Soccer as I had heard positive things about it too. Think I'll watch Kung Fu Hustle first though! ;)

    Having watched Hustle, I found I just couldn't get into Shaolin Soccer :(

    Got KFH-ltd ed waiting to be cracked open.

    I'm one of those who didn't like SS but I think that that was more to do with the fact that it was dubbed :thumbsdow at the pictures and not subtitled.
