New DVD Releases: 5/11/10

On May 11th, 2010, Media Blasters/Tokyo Shock are releasing the following titles:

First off, "The Kid with the Golden Arm," a classic movie featuring the Venom clan, gets it's long awaited release on DVD. With Chang Cheh at the helm, you know what to expect... Good vs Bad, lots of gimmicks, and top notch fighting! Basic story, a large shipment of gold has to make it from point A to point B... with the good guys protecting it, and the bad guys trying to steal it. Well... as you can imagine this sets the stage for many confrontations involving a lot of crazy gimmicks and weapons. This is definitely one to check out!

Also dropping today from Tokyo Shock is "Deadly Duo" on the Blu-ray format (previously available on standard definition DVD). Classic Shaw mainstays David Chiang and Ti Lung star in this old-schooler also directed by Chang Cheh.

From the Media Blasters description:

"When a handsome prince is taken captive and guarded by a martial arts master, it's up to two powerful patriots to fight overwhelming odds. From the first fascinating minute to the final desperate battle to the death culminating in an unforgettably evocative conclusion - this duo is dynamic as well as deadly."
