I love watching the movies Well Go USA brings us to Blu-Ray. The presentation is so pristine and perfect time after time, often out shining many high budget production houses. I have trouble watching lower quality Asian films, because I want to see them perfectly presented at our festival on the big screen or I wait to see what Well Go USA will bring us next. I am not just saying this because they are a big part of our festival, I often skip the theatre for many American movies and wait to see them on Blu-Ray. Well Go USA just happens to bring us the best presentation of Asian movies anywhere. Case in point; THE RAID, a favorite from last year, came to us from Sony and the Blu-Ray transfer was a abysmal, I caught myself several times while I was watching the dark grainy presentation, wondering how good this film would of looked if Well Go USA had handled the Blu-Ray. Oh well.
Lately, we have been given some great looking films from Well Go USA; PAINTED SKIN, WU DANG, DOOMSDAY BOOK, VIRAL FACTOR and MY WAY to name a few recent incredible films. 2012 was a great year for Well Go USA movies and we even benefited from by getting to show some of them to you on the big screen this last year.
The film I have been waiting for months to see on Blu-Ray is finally here, TAI CHI ZERO – this film promises to leap off the screen. I cannot wait to get my hands on this tomorrow and pop it in the Blu-Ray player and watch it on my 120″ screen in full surround sound glory, it will be epic. Now if someone could just make a Korean version of the Matrix with a cyberpunk twist.
The latest from Stephen Fung, the director of AFFD festival favorite HOUSE OF FURY, is TAI CHI ZERO an epic battle between a small village, a railroad baron and stranger with a secret weapon. A mix of steampunk, kung fu, comedy and live action manga, you will have fun watching this action masterpiece. The only downside is you when you get to the end of this one, you will be begging for the sequel ASAP.
To read a proper review that will only convince you that you need to see this film immediately, read this from our friends over at Twitch.
