    Hi,

    I have these short listed;


    - Avalon SE


    - Versus (check review on http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/reviews.html)


    - Shiri (not sure about this is it better than infernal affairs?)


    Will order soon. The only problem sites like dddhouse and hkflix, are soooooo slow during the day in UK, they just dont work properly.

    I thought Shiri was excellent. Have had the Korean 2 discer for a while now

    I have the R1 SE of versus on pre-order from dvdsoon; worked out about £11.50 with free shipping.

    Haven't been getting too many 'current' Asian films at the moment; too busy tring to watch as many of the Shaw Brothers re-releases from IVL/Celestial as I can - 36th chamber without an american dub - amazing :)

    I thought Shiri was superb - enjoyed it alot more than infernal affairs.
    Versus is out as a 2 discer on R1 end of july - cant wait.
    Avalon is very good but alot of people found it very slow and confusing.
    James45 Happiness of the katakuris has been out for awhile on R1 Se dvd - superb and well worth getting.

    Shiri is wicked mate, get the 2 disc Korean release, shortly followed by Avalon, and then when Versus comes out get that.

    Got the 2 disc Avalon a few days ago, and must say I was quite disappointed.

    But I didn't find it confusing. From the one review I read of it, I was expecting and looking forward to a complete mind fudge, but it just didn't melt my brain like I thought it would :)

    Liked that little girl in it though. I know it's kind of a cliche now, and it probably wasn't even intentional, but I thought she was well freaky :)

    Liked the final shot aswell.

    Hero's on the DVD menu tonight :)

    Just finished watching Hero. I know this has been reiterated in other threads, but....

    Oh....my.....god

    It is incredible, in every sense. I have officially been blown away :)


    Believe everyones hype, you all must buy this film!

    Eh?

    Shiri = sucks ass.
    Hero = Story sucks ass.
    Avalon = Not seen whole film with subs but looks good.
    Versus = Dont believe the hype but ok if you like that kind of film.

    Happiness of the Katakuris was or is being shown at the UGC's atm.

    Returner = Good.

    Also I recommend: Shaolin Soccer, Red Shadow, Ichi the Killer, Dead or Alive, Ring 2, You Shoot I shoot, My Wifes a Gangster, Battle Royale, Bio Zombie.

    I have Bichunmoo 2 The Legend of Genko but its over 3hrs long and I still aint seen part one, Lol.
