If the prices are the same, will get the one with the best picture of Maggie Cheung on the cover.

A new blu-ray of Benny Chan's popular triad melodrama A Moment of Romance is available for pre-order on YesAsia.

The packaging has seemed to have gone above and beyond, at least from these pictures.

Then again, the link above states "lthough publisher take Digital Scan version from Copyright holder but there might be some scratch on screen. Some scratch are not error. So please understand this situation. Thank you." Take that how you will.

This is why year-end round ups are so important. I have not been following Hong Kong cinema recently so it was great to find this run down of the Hong Kong films of the year, which includes The White Girl, co-directed by Christopher Doyle; The Founding of an Army by Andrew Lau Wai-Keung (of Infernal Affairs), the third in the series about the history of the Chinese Communist Party; a pair of Journey To The West adaptations: Wu Kong up against Tsui Hark's Stephen Chow-starring special effect laden Journey To The West: The Demons Strike Back; John Woo's doing his dualistic cop-criminal thing again with Manhunt and topped by a new film by Ann Hui, Our Time Will Come.

Meow (if Jellyfish Eyes can get a Criterion release, then surely this can! Though of course Futurama got to the premise first!), The Sinking City: Capsule Odyssey, The Sleep Curse (which feels like an extremely gory throwback to the heyday of the Category III films of the late 80s and early 90s) and 29+1 also look quite intriguing out of that list!

Well -- this list starts with the worst and works up to no. 1 -- which is the new Ann Hui Blu-Ray that just arrived in my mailbox yesterday. ;-)
