Isn't the dvd slightly cut?
Also the vhs has the English dub.

Old-time HK film expert Andras (also a member here) says it's slightly trimmed but I've never compared the two prints myself. And yes, the vhs is dubbed in English which is actually pretty cool for this type of movie (in my opinion anyway). The dvd is subbed in English.

The cover is hideous


Yes, absolutely awful! The old UK pre-cert cover is much better:

The top row of VHS, including The Beasts, I got from the same guy. He got them from a neighbour who apparently had a room full of those things and was getting rid of them as he was switching to DVD. He had a few more ex-rentals with him (more mainstream stuff like 1984 and Screwballs) but he said he had lot's more stuff at home which he was willing to bring next time. So hopefully the weather next weekend is ok and I'll be scoring big time, lol :)


Well I met with the guy and it was rather disappointing. Most of what he brought was sell-through, recent american movies and not interesting at all. Anyway I have his email and he'll contact me should he get more interesting stuff. Here are the VHS I found today on the flea market. Nothing special I guess

However I did find some other interesting items

I'm simply visiting local flea markets and garage sales, there are dozens each weekend all over Belgium.

- I've seen super8 before 1 or 2 times but nothing interesting like today.

- VHS you see quite a lot but ex-rental of anything remotely interesting is uncommon

- VideoCD is also uncommon and when you find them it's always the same movies like Top Gun . These are usually sellers that also have "games" for the amazing Philips CD-i (which I also collect since many of them are FMV garbage with bad acting) Most of my VCD collection is in this picture (quite pathetic :))

- I've never seen Betamax movies (couple of times I did see a player)

- I've never seen Laserdisc player or movies

- DVD: lot's of them but nothing even remotely interesting. I don't even bother looking at most boxes anymore

not every flea market here in holland is free, so i kinda stopped going to them since i never find anything of interest.
Definately never seen super 8 or laserdiscs and cant recall video cds either. I think most people still sell that through the likes of marktplaats or ebay.

I would say your time at flea markets has been pretty rewarding and makes me think twice about it. Maybe i should go visit them again :)
