So that pretty much seals the deal. I'm just gonna order my Jackie Chan's from the UK from this point on. They are doing a far better job than the bozos here in the states.

We've come a long way in quite a short time. From having almost nothing to having 13 of the classic Jackie Chan movies out in good quality on Blu. It's been really unexpected but much appreciated

I’m ecstatic that we’ve gotten a proper release of DM II after decades of waiting. If only we could get the same for some of the others in Forture Star and Miramax’s evil death grips .
