    Don't forget Ring-Fu Part 2 with seven sets of subtitles. Technically a Hong Kong disc, but close enough!

    Shit, didn't realize I was the one who created this thread.... Good times.

    No, I didn't forget it, and I would defnitely not lump it in with my Japanese discs.

    I have a significant number of Hong Kong discs, probably 20 or so. That's not including the Tai Seng discs, American releases of HK films. Just off the top of my head for Hong Kong-produced discs:
    Ring 2
    Street Angels
    Once a Thief
    Magnificent Warriors
    Wonder 7
    Butterfly and Sword
    Deadful Melody
    Sex and Zen
    My Father is a Hero
    High Risk
    Moon Warriors
    Dragon Inn
    Drunken Master 2
    Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars
    Organized Crime and Triad Bureau
    God of Gamblers
    A Chinese Torture Chamber Story

    I also have a copy of Argento's Phenomena on Japanese LD. I did have a copy of Carpenter's They Live, but it was pan & scanned at 1.85/1 (pretty sure it's framed at 2.35/1), so I sold it off.

    One of my favorites is the Argento's PHENOMENA "Integral" version. Nice gatefolded cover, simply beautiful.

    I also have the GODZILLA DEATH BATTLE set and another boxset with Toho monster movie highlights. The GODZILLA FANTASIA always eluded me.
    I also have TERROR IN THE AISLES which is letterboxed.

    Got several Japanese Lasers . . .

    NON-ANIME/J-ROCK/MUSIC/MMA

    Crying Freeman (live-action starring Mark Dacascos)
    Get Crazy (whacked rock comedy starring Malcom McDowall--not on DVD)
    Suspiria: Spectral Collection (box set with Suspiria and Profondo Rosso)
    That's Shock (otherwise known as Terror in the Aisles everywhere else--not on DVD)
    Dark City
    Conquest (was originally the only way to get this Fulci movie prior to the BU DVD)

    Got a lot of anime, music, mma discs as well, but that'd take too long to remember and list!
