Screw the dvd, hd and blu-ray. I want the VIDEO-CD!!

Someone over on ADG posted THIS scan today!! The Hong Kong VCD release of John Woo's masterpiece BULLET IN THE HEAD.

Rats!!! Why didn't I find this!! Yeah yeah I know; envy is an ugly thing but still!!!

- In case you're not familiar with the background for my desire to own this VCD (a desire I share with tons of fellow HK movie/John Woo collectors) let me just point out that this is the only release that contains the original version of John Woo's amazing movie BULLET IN THE HEAD. All other video tapes, DVD's, laserdisks, TV recordings, and what have you, do NOT contain the original version but altered versions!

Yes, unfortunately the only way to watch John Woo's original idea for this movie is via this low-quality format. And in addition to that it's close to impossible to find! Congrats to the guy on ADG who finally tracked it down.

NB: As a response to this post Phantom Of Pulp did another post here where he showed proper scans of the VCD and gave some more incisive info on the different versions. Check it out.
