No less than twelve Asian DVDs are hitting store shelves tomorrow, which is just about the silliest thing ever. You can look at all twelve over here, or just take our recommendations because, trust us, only four of them are really worth your money.
TAI CHI MASTER – a two-disc special edition DVD of the B+ Jet Li/Michelle Yeoh early 90’s Hong Kong action movie.
EXTE – a special edition DVD of Sion Sono’s terrifically funny, weird, and deeply upsetting hair horror movie that’s a hell of a lot better than it sounds.
MADAME O – Synapse restores (albeit dubbed) this 1967 roughie sexploitation film from Japan.
PERHAPS LOVE – not entirely successful, you still have to give Peter Chan credit for just how enjoyable this show business musical (yes, a musical) really is.
There’s also CHALLENGE OF THE MASTERS a good, but not great, Shaw Brothers flick, which gets a special shout-out because Shaw Bros. discs should be picked up whenever possible as they run a risk of going out-of-print within a year or so.
