[Quote=Knockabout]Does anyone have a list of old school kung fu movies available for viewing at the KMDB (both for free and if you pay)?

And is it possible to download the movies (or parhaps just the original audio, to synch up with the existing eng dubbed DVDs)?

[Quote=Knockabout]Thanks a lot Kaleyboy, very nice list :)

Have you seen any of them yet? Do you know if it is possible to download either the movie or just the soundtrack?
I downloaded all the free-to-view movies, and I'm gonna grab the pay-per-views soon. It's a complicated process, because even after you manage to rip the stream, it contains DRM. So the DRM has to removed or you can't convert to DVD. I found a way to do it using Tunebite. If you wanna trade for some after I get them, I'd be happy to oblige.

I've just now started grabbing the pay-per-view movies. Pretty cheap, 5000 korean won (£3.00 UK) for 14 days veiwing. The koreans have truely done great things with their movies; if only countries like China & Taiwan could do something similar.

It's been awhile since I posted in this thread, so thought I'd report my progress. To the guys on here who asked to trade some of these movies, I have actually downloaded all the movies everyone wanted from KMDB. However, I'm currently in the process of moving house, so there'll be a delay before I can complete any trades. I sold my old place, and am living in smaller accomodation til my new house is ready to move into. This means that most of my stuff is now in storage 'cos there's just no space at the moment. Once I'm in my new place, I'll get round to completing everyone's trades. I have the movies all safe and secure. Also, this has meant a delay to all FuSubs projects. I have completed scripts for 2 movies but can't sub them yet. Hoping to move in next 1-2 weeks. Cheers.
