New Police Story (DTS Version)1 people found this review helpful
October 14, 2006 well done...
Finally,Jackie partnered with Benny Chan again to do another Police Story which have remained one of my favourite Jackie Chan movies of all time.
To have Charlene returning on screen again and still looking good is superb and include two of the hottest stars, Nicholas Tse and Edison Chen in it makes it even more worthwhile to watch this movie and purchase it.
This movie has Jackie's trademark which is full of action packed and comedy as well.
On the Edge (DTS Version) (Hong Kong Version)October 14, 2006 Intense and action pack
A movie with superb and strong cast from the notoble Francis Ng,Nick Cheung,Rain Li,Anthony Wong whom have all gave a good performance in this intense show.This show is slightly different in a sense that it shows an undercover cop's life after he had successfully arrested the top boss of a triad in HK after doing it for 8 years.
As can be shown in this film,it's not an easy task to return to normal life and having not gaining trust from his police workforce and constantly in suspicion.
It may not be the best movie of all time but it's still is worth watching it.
Bride from Hanoi (English Subtitled)(SBS Special Drama)
Bride from Hanoi (English Subtitled)(SBS Special Drama) DVD Region All(8)Our Price: US$33.99List: US$44.99Save: US$11.00 (24%)October 14, 2006 Not too bad...
it's nice to see a different style though the story is a little typical of show of a guy-LJS who met and fell in love with a Vietnamese girl-KOB when he was working there and then left the country and only to meet again a year later when his brother ordred a mail-order bride which happens to be her.
KOB had potrayed well as a convincing vietnamese girl and her fluent in the language makes it more realistic to the show as well.
Stairways to Heaven Original Soundtrack (Overseas Version)(22)Our Price: US$17.99List: US$23.99Save: US$6.00 (25%)October 13, 2006 A perfect 10.....
All i can say is that this is truly one of the best love and sad drama and i really feel the on-screen chemistry and how convincing they are between KWS & CJW.I definately like his potrayal here better than Almost Love.
As for the songs here,all are very good and worth listening again and again.The right kind of music that were composed makes it important as part of the show.Reccommend that you buy this soundtrack if you like the show too.

I have to say i like the package that came with this which also includes some extras on the dvd and all the nice photos of the main cast.
As for the songs and the music,all of it are good and worth listening and buying.
Stairway to Heaven (English Subtitled)(SBS TV Series)(24)Our Price: US$111.99List: US$145.99Save: US$34.00 (23%)October 13, 2006 Excellent But Very Sad........
Firstly,i'd have to say i seldom watch any sad movie/tv dramas.However,after hearing from my friend who has watch it and liked the show,i decided to purchase it.
I have to say this is one of the best show i've watched despite having a sad ending which left me teary eyed.I'd say performances from CJW and KSW and also the rest of the cast SYH and KTH were well potrayed and excellent.Chemistry were there for both CJW and KSW and i hope they will do more dramas together.
I have to agree with some reviewers here that in some parts,the show tend to drag.I think i'd have hope that they had emphasized a little more of a relationship between Jung-Suh Han and the father towards the end of the show and how the father felt to see her beloved daughter passing away and how he cope with it.
I feel that the character of the stepmother and the stepsister was too mean but the actresses have done well here.Still prefer KTH in Love Story in Harvard.
A truly compelling drama that focuses on first love and how much has been sacrificed and staying in faith and true to each other despite the years passed by and all the obstacles that they went through and believing in each other as well.
Dating Now (English Subtitled)(SBS TV Series)1 people found this review helpful
September 18, 2006 it's all right....
I'd say that this series isn't that bad but it's not that good either and i have to agree that it the storyline was too long and draggy though kwan sang woo,chae rim and so ji sub were good....
However,it was interesting in how the show reflected the type of dating men that we meet and that the social status should not be a deterrent in your marriage either.
Spring Waltz OST (KBS TV Series)July 18, 2006 Nice Soundtrack..
The music here are relatively for easy listening pleasure.Like the piano instrument that were played in some of tracks,so soothing and calm and nice to listen to.
Save Your Last Dance For Me OST (SBS TV Series)July 17, 2006 Excellent Soundtracks....
This was one of my long-awaited soundtrack and i have to say it was worth the wait.Never did i expected it to have english versions of their main music soundtrack.But it was good and i'm glad that they have this version as well.Wish they could produce some english version as well for some of the soundtracks.All the music and instrumental are nice to listen to again and again.You should purchase this CD if the show is also one of your favourite.
Green Rose OST (SBS TV Series)July 17, 2006 It's good...
At long last,this one came out and after having listening to it,the soundtracks are quite good with mixture of instrumental and music though i'm more of a music kind of person than instrumental.Definately can't listen to this if you're sleepy as the instrumental music are kinda on the soft and melodious side.But it's worth buying.
Wedding (English Subtitled)(KBS TV Series) (End) (DVD) (Korea Version)(14)Our Price: US$99.99List: US$129.99Save: US$30.00 (23%)1 people found this review helpful
June 23, 2006 Value added and good...
One of the better series that i liked so far.Good chemistry between JNR and RSW and supporting cast.The story started off well but it did get a little draggy in the middle.
However,there's value to this story whereby it takes a lot to make a marriage works between 2 people be it of similar or different interest and view and love alone isn't enough but there needs to be tolerance,understanding,trust,compromise and etc...
Would reccommend to purchase this series as it highlights their making of the show and their outtakes.
The Eye (DTS Version)June 17, 2006 One of the Better Ones....
This show was one of the blockbuster here in my country when it first came out.I have to say i was very impressed with Angelica Lee and am proud that she won award in her role here and to be representing our country is another achievement.
Quite a scary show and i will never forget when she was in the lift scene.Pretty scary when it's you alone riding in the lift at night.Would reccommend people to buy this first one instead of The Eye 2.
49 Days (DTS Version) (Hong Kong Version)June 17, 2006 Something different....
When i got the dvd and watched it,i find that the storyline is very different as it sets back during the old days period and about beliefs in certain things like burning a rhinocerous horn,you will be able to see the other part of the world after death and how a soul has only 49 days to stay on earth before they depart.As always,Stephen Fung is good as an actor and also a producer.As for Gilian,i find her acting a little bland here.Few scenes were scary but not as much as The Eye though.
ASTA TV International Edition - March 2006June 17, 2006 Good but need improvement
I have to say for a magazine,it is a little costly for me to buy every month.Hence,i usually purchase when there's something interesting that i like to read.
It was good to have coverage of some of the tv/movie interviews and also with the production crew behind the scenes.However,i wish that you would have a column featuring various actors/actresses/singers biodata and their likes,dislikes,work that they have done so far,awards won and etc on monthly basis.This will allow us to know them in detail.In addition,would be nice to have a fold-up poster or two.
SE7EN Vol. 3 - 24/7June 17, 2006 Quite Impressive
This will be my second Korean artiste that i bought after Rain based on all the good review that i've read about Se7en.I have to say i actually liked all the songs here even if i don't understand the words.Very upbeat and energetic.
Typhoon (DVD) (2-Disc) (Korea Version)2 people found this review helpful
June 17, 2006 10/10
This was my first Korean movie that i've watched in a cinema this year and i have to say i was blown away by this show.Superb acting from both Jang Dong Gun and Lee Jong Jae where it epitomise between revenge and doing what was right in protecting and sacrificing for the country.Full blown action movie and the fighting sequence was whoa !
One of the must buy movie.Never knew that Korea was capable of coming out good movies which is at par with some of the notoble Hong Kong movies.
Fox And Cotton Candy (Vol.1-26) (To Be Continued) (Taiwan Version)(1)Our Price: US$27.99June 16, 2006 not that great....
This show had just finished showing on my local tv and well,it's not too bad but i wouldn't say it's a great show.Reason being is that i've not heard of a substitute teacher that doesn't teaches a single subject in school.What's the point of just being a classroom teacher then?
Basically,this lou pu ti character used to be a student in the school and some years later,she was hired to keep an eye on a boy(whose stepmother is the director of the school)from causing problems but eventually the school boy fell in love with her and to make matter worst,the stepbrother fell in love with her as well which resulted in love triangle.
Thank goodness the show doesn't just focus on the 3 main characters but it also reflects further on the students of her class individually of their problems and how did she helped them out.
My Lovely Sam Soon (End) (DVD) (English Subtitles) (Hong Kong Version)(21)Our Price: US$58.992 people found this review helpful
June 16, 2006 Something different....
This is an excellent show except i have to agree with one of the reviewer here which i also questions on some of the abrupt ending to some of the supporting casts' characters;did sam soon's sister eventually got together with the chef and why is the secretary always so dull and lifeless,how and why was she adopted by Jun Hin's mother.
However,other than that,the show was good and it's refreshing to have a character which isn't perfect in looks,outspoken,brash and spontaneous whom like some of us are always dealing in our daily lives in relationships,eating habit,work problems related and etc....For a good looking guy,Jun Hin to even fall in love with a girl like her later on proves that looks isn't important when it comes to falling in love but the personality of the girl.
This is a show that is a must buy.
Palace aka: Princess Hours Limited Edition (MBC TV Series)(22)Our Price: US$137.99List: US$179.99Save: US$42.00 (23%)June 16, 2006 please release eng subtitles
Ok.Frankly,i've not seen this series yet as it's not out in my country at the moment.But from all the reviews and also Asta magazine,it's said to be a very good show.Honestly,i sincerely hope you can release another version in english which is cater to most people like us and to provide the special edition as well for us to watch.I trust the review and will sure find this an excellent show to buy....
My Lovely Sam Soon OST (MBC TV Series)June 16, 2006 Nice selection of music
