Check out my two new ex-rental tapes! It's the Hong Kong girls with guns flicks BRAVE YOUNG GIRLS and ANGEL 2 (aka Iron Angels 2). I don't have to tell you it's YUKARI OSHIMA on the cover of BRAVE, and Moon Lee, Elaine Lui, and Kharina are in ANGEL 2 (it's Kharina, aka Ha Wan-Loh/Kharina Isa/Karina Andrews, on the cover). Incidentally, Yukari Oshima was the bad guy in the first ANGEL film!
Don't remember seeing these on the shelves here at the local video rental stores.ReplyDelete
You mean in Sydney or in Turkey? I haven't got them yet so I can't tell for sure but I would assume they're pretty old. You correct me on this but maybe Turkish dubbed films (from other countries than Turkey) weren't distributed in great deal to Turkish shops outside of Turkey. Maybe they mostly rented them out in Turkey (??).ReplyDelete
I posted that comment nearly two days ago I,m surprised it showed up at all. Hahaha. I meant in sydney australia. There were close to a dozen turkish rental stores here. You couldn't actually buy a videos with a proper covers only second generation ones which were being sold as official tapes but were in fact pirated copies with the rental stores sticker on it. For the most part the turkish video stores here were using the same blank tapes over and over again until there was nothing left that could be passed off as being viewable. I must've seen at least 500+ turkish movies but most of them were at least 4 times worst than a bad you tube video. Also there were quite a few bollywood movies dubbed into turkish too but again these didn't have any covers. My brother remember's seeing greek tapes of turkish movies a few years ago with covers but he regretted not buying them. Yeah you're right if the video store did have the original they would use this as the master to copy onto the blank tapes.ReplyDelete
Jack check out these bollywood movie dvds dubbed into turkish from a seller in germany. I wonder if any of these are worldwierd cult flicks or just regular melodramas :-ReplyDelete

To answer your second question.... Yes vhs tapes in Turkey would've been mostly rented out.ReplyDelete
Just a quick reply for now, Joe. Thanks for the info.ReplyDelete
About renting films out, maybe we talked past each other. What I meant was: Did the Turkish rental shops in Australia rent out non-Turkish films that were dubbed into Turkish? For instance would they have Hollywood movies dubbed in Turkish? These non-Turkish movies were obviously rented out in Turkey, and dubbed into Turkish. Hence my two new Turkish dubbed Hong Kong films.
Oh, and I could easily imagine they would have re-used the tapes over and over again to tape new films. LOL.
I'm aware of the Turkish films on Greek tapes in OZ. Ayman Kole was actually selling some of them via eBay a while ago (he's also in Sydney).
I remember the turkish video stores hiring out regular english language videos too. Apart from the Bollywood movies dubbed into turkish, i don't remember hiring out any other dubbed non turkish movies from other countries. However i can't really say if there were hollywood or asian films dubbed into turkish here because i didn't seek them out for rental at time.ReplyDelete
I see. Well, needless to say I'm not really interested in European/American Turkish dubbed films either but these ones were cool cos I collect these films. :DReplyDelete
I've got a lot of turkish dubbed vcds of non turkish films in my collection, mainly bruce lee, james bond, some sci-fi,western and epic cult films too. I'm guessing you wouldn't be interested in these either ? I picked up several of them from a supermarket for around $1.85 each while I was shopping for groceries. Some of the titles were :- the day the earth stood still(1951), angels with dirty faces,enter the dragon,alien and they had conan the barbarian and some of the rocky and james bond films but I didn't get those.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the offer but no thanks I don't really have an interest in those. The two tapes were fun to buy but I think I'll stick with two and that'll be it. :D
I didn't have extra copies of those anyway.Lol just 2 of the Day the earth stood still one.No worries then !! Do you know anything about Dat files and how to convert them to dvd or vcd ? I'm having problems fing a dat file converter.ReplyDelete
Also do you have the Danish version of Reptilicus ? I've got the regular midnite movies one only. Is there a Danish version of "journey to the seventh planet" ?? Sorry dude too many questions in one go. HAHAReplyDelete
Sorry, I don't know anything about DAT files! I've got problems enough trying to convert a simple RealPlayer file to DVD format! Argh!ReplyDelete
Yes, I have the Danish version of REPTILICUS; It's out on DVD here. Unfortunately without English subs. There's no Danish version of "journey to the seventh planet". I don't know if there's a Danish DVD release but if there is the only difference would be additional Danish subs.
I'm having problems with real player conversions too. It seems nothing works with those file converters !!! I thought that 7th planet might've had a danish version too 'cos it was made by the same team as reptilicus and that it was a danish/usa co-production. Thanks that clears up that. I've got Journey/7th planet on ex-rental dvd, on sell thru(?) tape and on dvd as well. cheersReplyDelete
The people at customs finally sent me the tapes after I had to send them my invoice. I'm allowed to import goods into Denmark for a measly US$12 and these tapes were $10 each. I would have had to pay both the extra vat PLUS their fee (a whooping 30 dollars!!!). And all for some crappy Turkish tapes which I didn't even need in the first place! I just thought would be fun to have. Well, FORTUNATELY the seller had sent me an invoice only for the ONE tape and he hadn't bothered to make a new one for both tapes so instead he had just included the price for the second tape IN THE POSTAGE FEE, hahahaha. Well, THAT WAS MY LUCK!!! This meant the invoice for the one tape was for $10 (and the postage for $21!!!) and I got the tapes without problems. LMAO!!!ReplyDelete
Oh, and when I opened the parcel I discovered one of the tapes was even a bloody Betamax tape, haha.
