Not sure if this is already posted here but NovaMedia FS versions of some of the Lee films are part of this 50% deal.

I got this set for Christmas. I watched the Big Boss and from what i can tell switching between all of the audio options, they're all horribly out of sync. Does anybody know which track is the best in this regard and if the other films suffer the same problems? Enter the Dragon was fine but that was from Warner.

It's only Big Boss as far as I can tell.

Working on these Bruce Lee covers right now. They are not gonna include any specs from any region at all, so people from around the world can use them for their appropriate releases. Will make them available once they're done.

After watching the rest, it looks (for me at least) that the vast majority of the soundtracks on Big Boss, Fist of Fury and Way of the Dragon are out of sync. On Fist Of Fury, the only one that was in sync was the one labeled Cantonese (DTS HD 5.1) And on Way of the Dragon the DTS HD 5.1 English track. It's massively annoying as none of these are the tracks i'd choose to watch, i'd rather watch them in the original Mandarin. For the price, i'm very annoyed they didn't catch this problem nor have they addressed it in any way.

maybe a bad batch ? did the previous releases of the not 4k version remastered in the clear blu ray cases have any sync issues ?

Hi guys,

I'd like to clarify the Fist of Fury audio mistake on this and the former blu-ray from Mediumrare.

There is no double Cantonese mono, but double Mandarin mono. What the disc menu states as Cantonese, it is actually Mandarin and the other way around.

To summarize, the tracks are in this order:

1: English 5.1
2: Mandarin 5.1
3: Cantonese 5.1
4: Mandarin 2.0
5. English 1.0
6. Mandarin 2.0 (double track).

So, we actually miss the Cantonese 2.0.

I have both editions (UK 2015 single releases and 2016 Master Collection). The picture quality is way better in the 2016 release. Regarding the colors, the 2016 release look more yellowish compared to the 2015 one, but I like it, it gives you that HK 70s movie look that lacks in the 2015. Despite this, I noticed that now in The Way of The Dragon title sequence the sea is blue as it is supposed to be, while in the 2015 release it was black.

I noticed that the subtitles changed too between the two releases, the new one have descriptions for hearing impaired (with some funny lines like "hayaaa" to describe Bruce's sounds).

The Big Boss has issues with audio sync towards the end in both English 5.1 and English mono. You can sync the audio if your player allows you to.

Fist of Fury has the same double Mandarin mono audio problem and what in the menu is Mandarin is actually Cantonese, and the other way around.

Game of Death looks gorgeous compared to the 2015 single release (which I guess it was the same old upscale). This time it is really a new master and the picture is crispy and detailed. There is one big issue anyway: the 5.1 in this release has muffled dialogue which is at a very low volume. This is strange, because in the 2015 realese it was fine, I have no idea what they did and it is a shame because, as I said, the pictures is a lot better in the 2016 release.
