TCG's 15 Martial Arts Movies

A 15-pack of martial arts movies has been available at W--M--- for 5 bucks, and probably other places for just as cheap. Any good? Let's see.

(Note that every movie on the last disc is stored as 352 x 480, instead of DVD's normal 720x480. Those in widescreen have encoded the black bars in instead of adjusting the aspect ration, cutting the number of pixels in the case of "The Streetfighter's Last Revenge" to 352 x 272 actual video area, less then a third of a normal DVD. I haven't checked the first two discs, but expect long-play VHS quality at best.)
