Default The Legend of Drunken Master

I just saw this was being re-released. Is there anyway to contact the people putting it together to include the original, Drunken Master 2 in this? The dubbing is horrible, and the movie just has a different feel.

You don't know what your talking about. The dubbed version is great, no need for the original. I rather not have to read subtitles and follow the action on the screen

The chances are slim to none of the original version being seen on home video for a very long time. There is also simply not enough time to produce a proper HD master for Drunken Master 2. Lionsgate has taken over distribution for a portion of the Miramax library and is simply repackaging the same disc produced by Disney.

Facepalm!

Lionsgate is releasing this one. It's most likely the same disc. Nothing new.

The humour is not the same if I have to read subtitles. Its not a complete Jackie Chan experience if it lacks that. No need for a facepalm, dubbing is not as bad as people make it.

Many of the US releases for Jackie Chan's films have no Chinese audio track at all, which generally I'd consider a deal breaker. I prefer the original audio, no matter what. As long as the subtitles are properly synced, I can match the intonation of the spoken audio to the written text and the comedy is not lost on me.

However, in many of Chan's films, Drunken Master specifically, there is a saving grace. Jackie re-dubbed his own speaking parts in English, so at least it is his voice we hear, though dubbed.

And the bottom line is that the movie is set in China, so the spoken langauge should be Chinese, plain and simple (whether Mandarin or Cantonese), otherwise it strips away any sense of place or mood in the movie.
