Decent action movies made between '95 and 2001?

Postby odioustrident » Sun Mar 20, 2011 6:54 pm

I've somehow managed to enjoy stuff like:

Downtown Torpedoes
Thunder Cop (Nicky Wu)
Dark War
Blacksheep Affair

Any other recommendations?

Yeah those are all good stuff. Anything more budget/ lesser known? I see you have Golden Nightmare on the site!

Last Duel was still "processing" on HKflix before it shut down. Sure I won't be reimbursed for that order.

New waves have been harder for me to find than most of the old school business. Whats crazy about this is that all these films were pretty available through the 90's, at least I think so.

If one were to look at all the films Eastern Heroes mag reviewed and try to find them now.... It wouldn't be easy for me at least.

Its been quite a few years of searching for some HK and Taiwan VHS rips that should be common, but no luck I'm pretty discouraged :(

I know what you mean......its all about.... OUT OF PRINT ....OUT OF REACH......they become a RARE COMMODITY after being out of print for over 5 years.

Eastern Heroes stuff must be difficult to find......they went UNDER over 14 years ago now.....

THIS WAS HARD TO FIND AT ONE POINT.......Eastern Heroes put this out 15 years ago.
Hard Boiled 2 aka Last Blood aka Twelve Hours To Die 1991

For that sort of stuff your best hunting down VCD's as a lot of the 90's and early 2000 hk movies have never made it onto DVD.

The vcd's are even harder to find for me! Had some luck with Chinatown a few years ago but that luck has ended.

My experience has been that a lot of the traders who are into new wave just aren't active online or trading anymore. Occasionally I'll do a deal for harder to find stuff with people who never post on any forums.

These goddamn new waves are really in the woodwork these days! Sorry for all the complaints this has been building up for years!

I'm going to upload the Tai Seng release list when I get home. The amount of unknown titles on there is absurd, even though there are a few mispellings.
