Win King of Triads on DVD!

King of Triads DVD

It’s King of Triads, hitting DVD later this month from Lionsgate. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Audiences will engage in the battle for control of Hong Kong as Lionsgate releases King of Triads on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand this winter. Choreographed by martial artist and member of the Jackie Chan stuntman team, Chung Chi Li (Rush Hour), the film stars Simon Yam (Ip Man) and Kenneth Low (Rush Hour) with a special appearance by Suet Lam (Kung Fu Hustle). Called “…extremely entertaining…” (BeyondHollywood.com), the action-packed release also includes a behind-the-scenes featurette and interviews.

As is tradition in the Hong Kong underworld, after the execution of a crime organization’s leader, a new boss is called. But after the new man in charge begins extorting the former crime head’s children for money to pay off debts, the family will stop at nothing to seek redemption and seize control of the triad.

Farscape: The Complete Series Blu-Ray

Pop culture can sometimes wait. However, a really great deal sometimes cannot. Thus, we interrupt this lack of interruption with the following headsup: the Amazon deal of the day is the complete series of Farscape. For today only–or until they run out–the Blu-Ray complete series is $68.99, 65% off the regular list price of $199.95. And the DVD complete series is $44.99, 70% off the regular list price of $149.95. And, of course, if you do take advantage of this using our links, we get kickbacks which helps pay for the site. So thanks for that.

In other news…

  • George Lucas claims to be retiring in the wake of continued outcry against his tampering with Star Wars and the reaction of studios to his upcoming Red Tails. He says in the article, “I’m saying: ‘Fine. But my movie, with my name on it, that says I did it, needs to be the way I want it.'” Well, yes, George, but that doesn’t mean people have to like it. And–here’s why I think you’re just smarting from Red Tails more than anything else (we’re two days out from it opening and there’s one review on Rotten Tomatoes?)–you’re going to make money no matter what happens. People are going to go see Phantom Menace in 3D and even if they bitch the whole time they’re still giving you money. George, you are bulletproof. You’ll be back in the saddle before you know it. Episode VII. Mark my words. It’s still happening.

    Champions DVD

    It’s Champions, hitting DVD from Lionsgate. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

    Competing for the honor of demonstrating the sport of Wushu on behalf of China, millions of martial artists come together to show off their strength and skills. With a chance to represent their country’s national sport at the Olympics, honor is on the line and choosing a select few is an arduous task. Among those who take top prize are street fighter Zhang Feng (Dicky Cheung, Last Hero in China), and the earnest patriot Bao (Miu Tse, Empire of Assassins). But the road to the Games for these two men is paved with hardship and heartbreak, and their journey will test their strength, skill and spirit to its limits.
