  1. And speaking of Seediq Bale on bluray, I hear from some Chinese bluray forums that the Taiwanese edition (released by Deltamac Taiwan) has a on-disc defect that causes the disc the skip every few minutes. They have been offering replacement discs as a result of the defective discs. Also notable is the fact that Taiwanese is the most extensive home video offering hours of special features. So buyers beware!

  2. Oh, and just to clarity, I’ve heard that the problem only pops up during the first part of the film.

  3. Another good show guys, thanks! I still listen prett much every week.

    Looks Rouge (1988) is finally getting a BluRay release int the US. Do you guys have this in HK already? I’m very curious as to the restoration quality of this release. I would love to get it if it’s done right, this is one of my favorite 80’s HK films (probably Top 3).
