Soi Cheang's jaw dropping Dog Bite Dog (my 2006 Christmas Eve selection, lol) is scheduled for October 23, 2007.

"One of the most brutal and outrageous crime dramas I've ever seen -- and that's saying something... A nightmarish howl of fury from start to finish"
- Dennis Dermody, PAPER


"Dog Bite Dog is a viciously Darwinian drama...The violence is not of the stylized, exhilarating variety...but of the sticky, sweaty, close-up gore"

I like the Premier Asia cover the most. But the Dragon Dynasty better at the moment, features-wise.

DD will be releasing Bodyguard from Beijing co-starring Christy Chung. Jet Li is in the movie too (playing the lead role) in case someone cares ;D

I've got the Columbia dvd of Snake and Crane Arts of Shaolin. Obviously the quality isn't great, but its one of the rarest dvds I own. Not exactly Jackie Chan's finest work, but its probably his best Lo Wei film.

City of Violence DD review
http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film2/DVDRevie ... olence.htm

Looks surpisingly soft. Also contrasty and boosted but that could be the film's intended look. Not gonna buy this. I haven't seen any caps from the R3K but changes are it's either equal or superior when it comes to transfer quality. Nice extras in DD though.

Dragon Dynasty's releasing ALL OF THEM?  Do you know when?  Those aren't ALL coming out by December, are they?

Nevermind, I just took a good look at the list.  It'll probably be a couple strewn here and there every year for the next couple years.  I noticed King Boxer on there and it's already out.  And My Young Auntie.  And 36th Chamber.

Do you think there is a chance that Story Of Ricky will get a release by DD?

Possible, but not very likely (at least anytime soon). I don't think it's a Fortune Star title, and those are what I think DD will stick to mostly when it comes to older films.

2008-01-22: Fatal Contact

and according to hk flix:
4/8/2008: Come Drink With Me
4/8/2008: Heroes of the East (woohoo)
4/22/2008: Flash Point (2 Disc)

I wouldn't bet my money on those dates. It's a Brian White company after all ;D

That list should be reliable.

However, it's what they own, not what they are necessarily planning to release.

I'm hopeful about The Chinese Boxer, though. I really want them to release it as the IVL dvd is worthless.

Other Shaws from the list I'd really like to see them release include Killer Clans, Executioners from Shaolin, Golden Swallow, Crippled Avengers, Dirty Ho and the One Armed Swordsman sequels (New is one of my all time favourite wuxia films). Boxer From Shantung and 8 Diagram Pole Fighter are also fantastic but I've already got the French dvds of those.
