Shaw Brothers on Hulu!

shaw_hulu

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the Shaw Brothers offerings on iTunes, and now Celestial has expanded its digital footprint to include Hulu! There are a few differences between the films on the two platforms, though. For one, the films on Hulu are available to watch for free, supported by ads (like a good portion of other content on Hulu). On iTunes the films usually include both subtitled and dubbed versions, but on Hulu you don’t get a choice. Or if you do, I wasn’t able to find it! Anyway, every movie I started was dubbed. So if you don’t mind ads and you’re fond of the old dubs, Hulu has you covered! As with any additions that come to iTunes, I’ll do my best to post updates when new films are added.

If you’re an interested fan, you would probably also benefit from liking Celestial’s Shaw Brothers Facebook page so you don’t miss the new announcements! I’m not getting paid for this either, I’m just a big fan hoping to steer more people towards these wonderful films.

Horror Block — January 2015 Unboxing Video!

Is it that time already? Yup, it’s time for another Horror Block, the most horrific horror-themed subscription box out there! Horror Block runs $20 a month + shipping (with the shipping cost dependent on where you live). They also have multi-month packages, so if you want to sign up for one of those you can get each month’s box for as low as $15.99 + shipping.

Horror Block is based in Canada and ships their boxes internationally, so the whole world can enjoy them! If you’re thinking about ordering one, please click over to their website through one of the ads on the sidebar or the links on these posts and I’ll get a cut! Gotta pay for my upcoming facelift somehow! Order now!

But don’t just order blindly; watch the video and find out if Horror Block is right for you! And as always, I always appreciate any feedback or suggestions about the videos, so let me know in the comments. Thanks!

Shaw Brothers Movies on iTunes!

LIST UPDATED WITH NEW MOVIES!!! 7/3/15

If you didn’t already know, Celestial has made many Shaw Brothers films available via iTunes! They’re beautiful HD-quality videos, and in many instances the film comes with both subtitled and dubbed versions. Certain movies — such as one of my favorites Vengeance! — even make their North American debut (unless Vengeance! had some VHS release I’m not aware of). In any case, if you’re a Shaw Brothers fan this is a fantastic way to build up your collection with many films not available on Region 1 DVD. The films are also available on other International iTunes stores, but since I’m in the US I don’t know a lot about that. What I’m trying to say is that if you’re in another country, you should definitely give your local iTunes a search.

But if you’ve used iTunes before, then you know that the search function is far from perfect. Films are indexed by title alone, so manually searching for all the Shaw Brothers movies can be a real chore. That’s where I come in, providing a list of all the films currently available, as well as direct links to them on iTunes! As new films are added to the service I’ll post updates, too!

Rentals will set you back $2.99 SD or $3.99 HD per film, while purchasing runs $4.99 SD or $7.99 HD. There have also been sales in the past (such as a $0.99 rental of 36th Chamber of Shaolin), so if you’re an interested fan, you would probably benefit from liking Celestial’s Shaw Brothers Facebook page so you don’t miss the deals! I’m not getting paid for this either, I’m just a big fan hoping to steer more people towards these wonderful films.

Currently up for both rental and sale (in SD or HD):

Horror Block — December 2014 Unboxing Video!

Are you ready for another unnecessary unboxing video? Oh, boy I know I am!

Yes, it’s time for another Horror Block, the horror-themed subscription box that puts the F-U-N in horror! That doesn’t make any sense, and I don’t care! Horror Block runs $20 a month + shipping (with the shipping cost dependent on where you live). For me it totaled out to be just shy of $30. They have also recently announced multi-month packages that save you some money.

Horror Block is based in Canada and ships their boxes internationally, so the whole world can enjoy them! If you’re thinking about ordering one, do so through one of the ads on the sidebar or the links on these posts and I’ll get a cut! You don’t want my cat to die, do you? Order now!

But don’t just order blindly; watch the video and find out if Horror Block is right for you! And as always, I always appreciate any feedback or suggestions about the videos, so let me know in the comments. Thanks!

I’m on a Podcast — LAMBcast #249: The Hobbit Trilogy

vintage-cat-headphones

It’s that time again! Yesterday, I made my 2nd appearance on the LAMBcast, this time to take about Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films. They’re near and dear to my heart, but it always seems like everyone else is less forgiving of them, so I went in ready to defend them. Turns out I didn’t really need to, as everyone on the show actually likes the series. Imagine that! I guess they wouldn’t have signed up for the show if they hated the films, but you never know. I’ll have a written review up as soon as I can get it done. Maybe later today or tomorrow. Anyway, give the pod a listen and enjoy!

If you want to do that, I’ve embedded it below! If you wanna subscribe to the show or listen on a portable device you can head to iTunes, or PodOmatic (and for convenience’s sake those links will take you right to the respective LAMBcast page on each service). And don’t forget to subscribe to the show if you like it!

As always, I love feedback, so if you listen to the show let me know what you think! Thanks for listening!

Horror Block — November 2014 Unboxing Video!

I’m back with another Horror Block! If you don’t already know, Horror Block is a horror-themed subscription box that’s $20 a month + shipping (with the shipping cost dependent on where you live). For me it totaled out to be just shy of $30. Horror Block is based in Canada and ships their boxes internationally, so the whole world can enjoy them! If you’re thinking about ordering one, do so through one of the ads on the sidebar or the links on these posts and I’ll get a cut!

I’m on a Podcast — Filmwhys #42 Rashomon and The Guyver

vintage-cat-headphones
It’s that time again! Bubbawheat from the superhero-centric Flights, Tights & Movie Nights was kind enough to have me on his show Filmwhys again, but this time on a “real” episode where we go one-on-one about a pair of movies. I think this is my best podcast showing yet, so if you’ve been waiting around this is the one to listen to. (Although I haven’t listened back to it yet, so I reserve the right to change my mind. 😛 )

We talked about the classic Akira Kurosawa film Rashomon, and the ’90s “classic” The Guyver. Yes, they are two of the most opposite movies you could find, which is why they perfectly represent my love of both ends of the cinematic spectrum. And if you want to be cheeky you could say that thanks to the success of Rashomon opening the doors to foreign cinema in the US, The Guyver (being based on a manga) is partially in its debt! So every time you see a questionable film/TV show based on a Japanese property, feel free to tweet about it with a #ThanksRashomon hashtag! :) Anyway it was a good talk and a lot of fun. I also did not have time to write full reviews — or any reviews, for that matter — of these films, so if want my thoughts you’ll have to listen!

If you want to do that, I’ve embedded it below! If you wanna subscribe to the show or listen on a portable device you can head to iTunes, Stitcher, or PodOmatic (and for convenience’s sake those links will take you right to the respective Filmwhys page on each service). And don’t forget to throw Bubbawheat some love, too! Subscribe to the show if you like it and check out his site!

As always, I love feedback, so if you listen to the show let me know what you think! Thanks for listening!
