Film Data and Reviews:

Temptress Moon (1995) New on Laserdisc or on DVD! Laserdisc is new and VERY RARE, two disc set of the international famous Super Stars GONG LI and LESLIE CHEUNG; cinematographer CHRISTOPHER DOYLE, directed by CHEN KAIGE. Widescreen, NTSC format, total running time 127 mins., comes in Cantonese & Mandarin language tracks with ENGLISH & Chinese subtitles. DVD has menu choice of English or Chinese subtitles. Only $36.00 new laserdisc, or only $14.00 new on DVD!

Once Upon a Time in China I and II, (1992, 1993) new on DVD. The first two of what is probably the most popular Chinese historical film epic series in the world since films began (and deservedly so). Both starring Jet Li (Lethal Weapon 4), one of the truly great martial arts stars of our time. These two films are truly great historical and martial arts films, not to mention totally enjoyable entertainment. Highly recommended for westerners and for all. Except for some brief gory violence, it is even good family fun. The background is China during the colonial phase, when it was divied up between some of the world powers. Jet Li plays a local leader who tries to mediate the various conflicts which arise, but usually ends up fighing nearly everyone anyway as a hero. Both films end with spectacular fight scenes. (The ending action scene in Once in China II is said to be one of the best ever. The scenery and props are superb!) DVD menu includes many language subtitle options, including English, Spanish, and Japanese.

BLACK CAT I AND II, (1991, 1992) new DVD. Hong Kong remake of Le Femme Nikita with a few different twists. Some reviewers liked this better than the original due to the outstanding performance of new Hong Kong actress/beauty Jade Leung. I say it is certainly better than the American version. The first half of the film is set in the U.S. (actually appears filmed in Hong Kong with a large number of European mix extras). Consequently, a lot of it is in English, even after the story moves to Hong Kong. Another great quality DVD Widescreen transfer (1.66:1). Language options are Mandarin and Cantonese, however, more than half of the dialog is in English anyway, taking place in the U.S. and Hong Kong. Many subtitle menu options including English, Vietnamese, Spanish, others.

Full Moon in New York, (1992) new DVD, starring Maggie Cheung. Heart-warming human drama. Three Chinese immigrant women become friends in New York City. They each come from very different backgrounds: Sylvia Chang plays a sophisticated but somewhat failed New York theatre actress from Taiwan; Maggie Chueng plays a high-strung work-a-holic resaurant manager/real estate investor; Josephine Koo plays a naive woman from mainland China who just married a Chinese-American businessman. (All three are from those respective countries in real life.) Consequently, a lot of English is spoken, along with some Mandarin and Cantonese. Several subtitle menu options are available, including English and Chinese. Drama has similar feel as Joy Luck Club, but is somewhat even less upbeat than that film, and has very different people and story. It is refreshing to me to watch a serious drama with such fine Chinese actresses, without any Hong Kong humor or slapstick. Recommended for American drama enthusiasts! New DVD only $14.00

Peace Hotel (1995) Chow Yun Fat. New DVD, letterbox (1.66:1). Now we carry the Taiwan and Hong Kong DVD versions. This is an excellent quality DVD transfer of the film. Supurb action/drama - with the focus on drama. Much better to me than the John Woo action shooters. The central character (Chow Yun Fat) is a legendary mass-killer (but now supposedly reformed) who operates and protects a safe haven hotel for fugitives. Somewhat similar to Clint Eastwoods, Man With No Name. Highly recommended for American audiences. $17 Mandarin, or $23 Cantonese. Both have English subtitles. Mandarin version is uncut.

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD (1995). Features Asia Super Star/Singer ANDY LAU, also with KENNY BEE CHUNG, THERESA LEE; published by Mei Ah Laser Discs Co., Ltd. Laserdisc is out of print. This is widescreen, and a total running time of 99 mins., language in Cantonese & Mandarin with ENGLISH & Chinese subtitles. DVD comes with Dolby Digital 5.1. $14- new lower price on this wonderful film title.
