I am working on a deal to get a whole bunch of Philippino vhs and betamax tapes.

the postal costs are going to be a real killer ..... but I just cant help not to buy these tapes!

I love finding stuff like this, even I dont collect them.

more as half of the tapes are drama's and comedies, but I am sure that there are some good action movies among them ..... not so many horror/fantasy movies "oops!:

Never heard of them but their names sound like they would deserve some dvd releases

Also you get dvd recorders for peanuts on marktplaats. Some of them can probably record NTSC

You keep asking that and I keep telling you ... that blue guy is only in your head, Member-X. In your head.

Oh, they're totally well known names in Filipino action films and have been so for scores of years. B)

@Shootgringoshoot:
What a pile of awesome tapes you got there. Filipino films are an interesting bunch; some were made for distribution and omit boring dialogue, but most of them were made for the local market and have tons, I literally mean TONS of scenes of boring dialogue in them. Needless to say it doesn't make things better when you don't understand much Tagalog (although just like in Canto films they tend to have quite a bit of English phrases that make you almost think you understand the lingo). :D

And finally there's some Filipino flicks made for the local market that don't have too much boring dialogue. And just like Hong Kong, Turkey and Italy, they often put out ripoffs, or knockoffs, of American films. I have a Filipino remake of John Woo's A BETTER TOMORROW! (actually it incorporates both ABT 1 and 2). And a Filipino remake of NIKITA. B)

If you check YouTube there's a Filipino version of THE KILLING OF SATAN that runs 30 minutes longer than the English dubbed print! It's all dialogue, of course.
