As I mentioned in my LD thread Miles Wood (who wrote the book "Cine East: Hong Kong Cinema Through the Looking Glass") has lost interest in HK movies so he is selling off his entire collection of HK laserdiscs. You can see his lists at the sell/swap section at Asian Dvd Guide forum but now he's also put up stuff on eBay:

It's always sad when someone has to sell his entire collection...but a great opportunity to other collectors B)

He has some CatIII on auction now but I'm totally confused what's on DVD or not. I used to buy a lot of LDs in the past but now I could get only rare titles without a DVD release. Even if the pleasure of a good LD is millions miles away than a DVD.

He doesn't have to sell his collection. It's not out of financial trouble or anything. He chooses to do so simply because he doesn't like Hong Kong movies any more. :o :o

About which films that are on dvd and which aren't: Well, there are HK films that I've been looking for for years (for instance FINAL JUDGEMENT starring Simon Yam which I'm getting on LD now) and since I haven't been able to find them in any format dvd/vhs/vcd I recon they either don't exist or are totally über-rare.

:lol: :lol:

I have never read anything he's written so I don't know his standpoint. Personally, I got into HK cinema when it first became the "new fan flavor" of the horror/splatter video tape traders around 1990. I realise a few "fans" have turned their back to HK movies when trends shifted towards Korean and Japanese cinema. Well, not me, I still live in Little Kowloon (in Denmark :lol: )!!

He should be forced to an International Court (Den Haag maybe?) and face a trial with death penalty :D

Jack is also into breakdancing which he picked up in the mid 80's after seeing Electric Boogaloo. Now he's the most out-of-fashion guy in Denmark!
