Apart from their price tags!

Are Disney mad? Fingers crossed for good transfers on all of these. I skipped Hero on DVD as it didn't get a decent release. I've got the other 3 on DVD but would certainly upgrade Zatochi if the price was right.

I'm in for Hero. That has the potential for being a superb demo disc, re the forest fight, if transferred correctly. And Iron Monkey is a definite buy, providing we get the HK cut.

we won't, Miramax/Disney has never acquired the rights to the Hong Kong cut.

Zatoichi can be had as an import.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zatoichi-Blu...5454481&sr=8-1

At a pretty good price too.


I refuse to purchase Iron Monkey or Drunken Master, if they're the lame Dimension dubs.

Hero's a great movie.

Zaotichi is really good (and part of a long series of movies), although it has a beautiful extended dance sequence at the end that kind of kills the pace of the movie. But you can skip through it.

beware of the UK "Zatoichi"
even though it is region free,
it has a 50hz menu or trailer that cannot be bypassed by most US players.
almost every single person that imported it has had problems.

Yeah, but if you have region free player, it should work. Right?
