In My Own Words:
I must admit that I'm a kung fu maniac. My passion has started since I started learning seriously hung gar in May 2000. I already had learnt the basics of that art in 1998, but had stopped to practise it due to a certain lack of time. This passion explains why you see so many kung fu movies in my area.

Gomorrah (Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] [Import] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Gianfelice Imparato

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good movie, Dec 20 2009
This italian movie is in the same veins as City of God. It might be complicated at first because they don't explain right away how the camorra works, but I found it rewarding at the end and I wanted to know more about the subject. Thankfully, the Criterion edition packs some great supplements about the making of the movie and the author of the book on which the movie is based.
Beyond Re-Animator [Import] <b>DVD</b> ~ Jeffrey Combs
Beyond Re-Animator [Import] DVD ~ Jeffrey Combs
In the making-of, Director Brian Yuzna tells us that there's less gore in that movie than the previous two and it shows. In fact, that (and the bad acting from most of the actors) keeps the movie from becoming truly great. Otherwise, it's a fun movie that never gets dull but never acheives greatness either.
The DVD itself is of good quality for such a movie. Good picture quality, sound is ok, there are a short making-of, a director commentary and trailers, and the music video is so bad it's a laugh.
Because of its low price, it's worth a try if you're a fan of the series.
Last Hurrah for Chivalry [Import] <b>DVD</b> ~ Damian Lau
5.0 out of 5 stars Hurrah for John Woo!, Jan. 25 2001
Last Hurrah for Chivalry is one of the best martial arts movie I've ever seen. We can see John Woo' style in many of the scenes (slow motion action scenes) and themes (friendship and adversity). Once again, Wei Pai (the snake in 5 Deadly Venoms) shows his great skills in martial arts, as well as Liu Sung Yen (Green Suit). The story itself is classic but above average. The action sequences are many and quite amazing.
The quality of the DVD is rather surprising for a 1979 Hong-Kong movie. The sound is OK, but what really shines is the picture. While not perfect (some scratches appear from time to time), it's still clear and sharp.
Overall, this movie is definitely a must-see.
