General Questions:


Q - What kinds of films do you have?
A - Well, what films are you looking for? At Far East Flix, we've always specialized in Chinese and Japanese Kung Fu and Martial Arts films. We also added to our inventory films of several other categories, including Japanese and Samurai, Asian horror and Science fiction, just to name a few. Please feel free to browse the titles we have currently available by clicking any of the navigation links on the left side of the top of this page. We will be adding more titles frequently, so check back and check often!

Q - What kind of media (DVD, Laserdisc, VHS) is the source for your discs?
A - Depending on the rarity of the film and the quality of the available media of that film, any of those media sources may be used, or even a combination of them (for example: English dubbed VHS audio and a widescreen DVD video presentation). Whatever the media source that is used in the products we offer, you can be assured that it is the best  video and audio presentation that we have found in our many, many years of being in this business.
 
Q - What is the overall quality of your merchandise?
A - Most of our films range in quality from EXTREMELY GOOD to EXCELLENT condition. Some of the titles we offer are extremely rare and hard to find. The quality of those films may range from only "fair" to "good". All of our films are digitally converted from the best available source materials into a NTSC DVD format. As a digital conversion from these other source materials, the DVD is a digital presentation of that film, in the same video and sound quality as the original source material(s) the DVD was mastered from.
Please be aware that there is a difference between the digital conversion (or digital "mastering") of a film and the process of digital "remastering" of a film, (which requires one to have in their possession the actual film print of the movie, for the restoring of sound and/or video deterioration). Be weary of ANY merchant who claims that they've "remastered" their products.
If you have any questions about the film or sound quality of a particular film that we have, please email. We strive to provide the best quality that there is to be found. We wouldn't settle for less, so why should you.

Q - What is the video format of the movies?
A - All of our films are offered on high quality DVD-R media in the NTSC video format only with an "all region play" (Region 0) coding. We are not able to accommodate requests for other video formats. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
 
Q - Are the movies sold in plastic cases with cover art?
A - Every film is professionally labeled and comes to you packaged with a full color cover artwork in a plastic clamshell DVD case.
 
Q - Do you offer any other merchandise besides movies?
A - No. At this time, Far East Flix is strictly a DVD merchant.

Q - I am looking for a film but I don't remember what it is called. Can you help me?
A - Yes, we can! Try to be as descriptive about the film as you can (actors, director, year film was made, plot or storyline) and we will do our best to find the title you are looking for! The more information you are able to give us, the better our chances of locating the title of your film.

Q - I am looking for a movie that is not on your website. Can you get it for me?
A -  We have a tremendous inventory of movie titles, both in our own video library as well as other titles that are commercially available from other video retailers. We have also been in the business of selling Asian import films for several years.
We make every effort try to assist our customers who want to purchase a film that is not in our catalog or otherwise unavailable for purchase.

Q - Don't you sell VHS tapes, Laserdiscs, or VCD's (video CD)?
A - No. At one time, Far East Flix did sell Laserdiscs and we discontinued distributing video tapes. At this time, Far East Flix is strictly a DVD merchant.

Q - I have seen some of the titles you sell offered by other video merchants for less money. Why should I buy movies from you?
A - We have several years experience in this business and offer the highest quality of both entertainment and customer service. Simply put, that is what you pay for. Our films are transfers from the original or first generation sources to ensure the highest quality. The movies we offer are expertly produced, professionally packaged, and digitally mastered onto high grade, quality DVD-R media. We deliver our products and respond to all customer concerns and questions promptly and courteously.
Other merchants may care very little about the product they sell and are only looking for a "fast buck". They could be offering inferior film prints with poor visual or sound quality, unprofessional translations, or poor quality digital reproduction on bulk or "low grade" blank media, and are therefore charging you a lower purchase price.
If you are satisfied with another merchant's products and service that charges a lower purchase price, then continue to purchase from that merchant...
But, if you are tired of: films that look terrible, that sound awful, that have unreadable or illiterate translations, that no longer work in your DVD player 6 months after you've purchased it, or other merchants that provide little or no customer service, we recommend that you take a look at the films and services we offer.
