    I'm just getting a region free dvd player and was wondering where I can find the Hong Kong Classics dvds'? With all this stuff with Disney will I be able to find them?

    You can get Hong Kong Legends discs from any good e-tailer in the UK (Amazon UK, many others), but just having a region free player won't help you. You also need a DVD player that will convert the PAL signal into NTSC format, like the Malata or a couple others out there. Otherwise, the discs are useless.

    I thought Under 18 stopped shipping to the US.

    Perhaps they changed very recently? I just had something shipped last week. It was out of stock for a while and just got back in.

    I need to put my pimp hat on.



    Nick: e-mail me. I have some new sealed HKL DVDs for $18 each (beat that you UK e-tailers!).



    Under18 said they were not fulfilling any orders to the US a few months back because of complaints of floaters and "ahem" lost packages. They sent DVDs in a thin paper mailer. I had a two floaters out of three

    Ka,
    You are correct in stating that most (if not all) Hong Kong DVDs from Hong Kong are NTSC.
    However, Hong Kong Legends is a firm in the UK which distributes Hong Kong movies. Since they are in the UK the DVDs are region 2 and PAL. The are considered the "Criterion" of the Hong Kong movies since they generally add several special features and use remastered transfers for an anamorphic picture.

    You are correct. However, some Hong Kong Legends Disc are Dual R2 and R4. Wait till the Australians find out about this! Also, there is the Dutch Hong Kong Legends DVDs, which only sport different covers. Offer is still open through Sunday.
