Talking Police Story IVL Vs HKL

Looks like another boxset for me:

Anamorphic corrected shots by Cheng Chao-An over at BnBs:

I hope Pt3 looks as good

Does Police Story 1 have the extended Japanese ending?

Done

I haven't got the set yet hence the 'looks like' & 'I hope' Mine's on the way but no doubt some of the HK'ers will have a better take on the set pretty sharpish....

IVL is doing very well by re-issuing remastered (DD and DTS) DVD boxsets of all the "classic" films.

The HKL version's PAL video looks "squashed", whereas the IVL version looks correct.

Perfect, free shipping from YesAsia

EDIT: You can use a coupon which brings it below the $39 threshold but you still get free shipping.

Cream, this most underrated Chan flick and one of my faves looks like it's finally been given a decent release

And the running times on the case = the extended versions; one can hope....

Mine should be here tomorrow!!!

I'm sure I read somewhere that these would receive a Korean release (hopefully with similar packaging to the Better Tomorrow and Bruce Lee sets). Is that still the case ? If so, is it worth waiting, does anyone know a release date ?

(I must admit I'm dying to replace my Deltamac version of PS3 and getting the corrected picture versions (compared to the HKLs) of PS1 and 2)

I've got the HKL releases of the first two (I've sold my Deltamac DVD of Police Story 3) and I'll be keeping those for the extras, but I'm definitely gonna pick up this IVL set for the shiny new transfers and dts audio. Where to get it from though...

Got mine from YesAsia, took less than a week from when I placed my order, paid Ł19.96. Layoyo is cheapest before shipping, I've forgotten my dddhouse login so not sure how much they're delivery is

Is the dddhouse login ID an email address or a name?

Has anyone who ordered this set had a chance to look at the quality of the subtitles. Thinking of getting this as a present for someone so would appreciate your thoughts, ta!
