      In my humble opinion, JC highlights are the Drunken Master films especially 2 and these two Project A movies. Whilst I rate Police Story very highly, I must say I rate Armour of God a rung below these. I may not be able to resist picking this set up!

      Yes, the Armour of God films are definitely not top-tier; lots of fluff and padding and a frankly weird wind tunnel ending on 2 that came about purely because he was sponsored by Mistubishi and they had the tunnel. The fight before it is up to the usual standard, mind. Armor of God 1 is even slower as I recall, only the bizarre female warrior fight at the end of any note that I remember.
      And yes, DM2 over DM1 but haven't found a decent blu of it yet. The one I have is pants, soundtrack-wise. can't fault the crazy kicks though.

      For me my top 3 JC films are (in no particular order) Project A, Police Story and Wheels on Meals :)

      My question is when are we finally going to get a blu-ray release of Wheels on Meals, my favourite of the lot? The fight scenes in the chateau are awesome!

      watched this at the weekend, got the 2-film set. it's absolutely stunning, the pic is vivid and amazingly clear. there's some weird blurriness on some of the shots, can only think this is from the original prints, something to do w/ the lenses they used maybe?

      Got a couple of Eureka discs, they're doing fabulous jobs. they and Kino Lorba are really setting the bar for collectors' editions.

      And that, ladies and gentleman, is how one shows off with subtlety. :D

      Sammo’s was a lot easier to get than Jackie’s.

      Sammo had no bodyguards for starters :eek:
