Dragon Dynasty/Anchor Bay
I don't normally buy DVDs anymore (just concentrating on Blurays at the moment), but when I saw this new DRAGON DYNASTY 5 MOVIE COLLECTION, I had to pick it up. You can find it at a Best Buy for $10. It's a really good deal, four classic Jet Li and one Stephen Chow feature.

All the films comes with the original Chinese audio track as well as an English dub. They all have subtitles and closed captions.

The odd thing is that this release is by Anchor Bay Entertainment, using the Dragon Dynasty logo and artwork direction.

I'm pretty excited about Anchor Bay resurrecting brand... even if it is strictly a DVD release.  I guess for older mid-90s Hong Kong films, it's almost not worth it to go back for a 4k remaster, etc. The films still holds up and looks great on DVD.  These are probably going to be the best version anywhere, considering you get all the audio tracks, various subtitles, and image quality from the vault.

PS: Anchor Bay is bringing back the spine numbering: they are listed as #59 to #63
