Death Chamber just because that was the first movie my brother ever recorded when we got our VCR, Mad Fuzzy with commercials... LOL
channel 5/saturday @3pm!
Question , now I usually always enjoy the true real language track for these films with subs. But there are times that a few of these films I can only watch with the OG dubs? 5 Deadly comes to mind.Anyone else? Oh, I most definitely prefer the OG english dub for my Shaw films whenever possible.It's clearly a nostalgia thing as it's how I grew up watching these flicks.Any other film of non-english origin I gotta see with subs - including any other HK flicks made after 1983.But pre-'83, GOTTA have em in english.And you're right, 5 (Deadly) Venoms just doesn't seem right watching it in cantonese or mandarin.Same goes with just about any Shaw flick IMO.But that's just me.It's another reason I'll hold onto my old tapes.As it stands to reason that we'll never see these released in english again.

Anyways... Side question for you Paul or any other NYC cats. I haven't been down there for about 4 years now.Are the Porn/Fu bootleg shops still around? Or is it just porn now? It would be a shame if they're not. So many trips, where I'd always hit them up and walk out with bootlegs galore.I mean, now you can get mad old school bootlegs in any major city. But I think a trip down just wouldn't be the same without that shit.

Still have that tape?I really wish I would have held on to all of my tapes from channel 5/saturday @3pm!Truth be told, a lot of those flicks were shown on 2+ hour time slots and often ran longer versions than are available even on DVD today (Death Chamber/Shaolin Temple and Kung Fu Warlords/Brave Archerpart 1 being two that come to mind).
That is a whole crazy thread of its own. The visuals are perfect, sometimes the soundtracks have been re-edited & the subs are not bad, but not perfect. I don't buy the lousy bootlegs. Only the R3 dvd's. This is the only way to own many of these titles now. An American company will be releasing some in the fall which will be amazing, but their selection is not that great because of copyright issues.
