Wow, very pleasantly surprised at the film choices!

I already have three on BD, but some of the others are among my absolute favorite Shaw movies.

Those two statements are highly incompatible

Shawscope Volume One Blu-ray

Hmm, pre-order is now up - £149.99

An early-ish Christmas present I reckon!

I dunno: with their obvious soundstage 'exteriors' and their "A one and a two" choreographed not hitting each other where it just looks too staged and blocked rather than organic, some of the really lazy production line ones can definitely put you off seeking out the really good ones.

Vol 1 - Remind me again how many films these guys produced..

This could get very expensive... Beautiful looking set mind.

And limited to how many?

Around a thousand,,, about 760 sold to Celestial, not counting their investment in films like Blade Runner and Meteor.

I think Shaws is generally more wu xia than kung fu, though most of this set is kung fu ironically enough!

Their late 60s output was very good, but by the late 70s they were locked in a factory line. The shift to poorly chosen De Wolfe cues around that time definetly hurts.

The Golden Harvest films from the 1970s are generally cruder but their use of Sammo as a choregrapher made the difference.

If it helps your wallet any, I think quite a lot of their earliest films from the Tianyi Film Company-Shaw and Sons era are presumed lost, as are some of their Malay ones.

This might be referring to the two US individual releases, though I'm hoping perhaps we might get a dedicated One-Armed Swordsman set.
