Are you referring to current works? If you want info from farther back there's this list from Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia....iki/Techniscope

And from I aM DuBious:

http://www.imdb.com/...PCS:Techniscope

But, I don't know how well it covers your Far East question.

Any works current or older, just preferably good :P that anyone knows of really. I've seen the Wikipedia short list as well as the long list of (mostly) italian flicks on imdb, quite a bit much to sort through but haven't really found much of anything.

Yeah, I've seen that as well, it seems that Bordwell has got his Technovision and Techniscope confused. :| In another article by him as well that complements this one he says Storaro made use of Techniscope according to "link", and page he links clearly says Technovision lol.

Indeed he says in another post that the anamorphic lenses used in HK are Techniscope (Cooke) lenses.

Is he messing up his data or is it like calling all sodas a Coke? Is it a Chinese catch-all word for wide screen? I don't know enough about what's going on over there to have a clue.

Oh sorry, my mistake, I meant Technovision, not scope.
