The Golden Ninja Podcast 5: To Catch A Thief VS Ninja Thunderbolt

The ancient tradition of a ninja set in the modern world. An international ninja conspiracy which almost succeeds. Where the heights of violence are only equal to the depths of sexual degradation. Where the ninjas nerves of steel meet their match in a ruthless bid for power.

Podcast On Fire 189: The Last Blood & Pantyhose Hero

pof189

Alan Tam double bill, people! Normally an actor I detest and for part of this episode I will continue doing that but no doubt, Tam-ster, Tam-boy, Tammi was part of a thriving Hong Kong cinema and put in various vehicles requring a lot out of him. Among other things action and for part of this evening, that admiration will be put forth. We first look at Wong Jing’s gun-fu, gunplay, Singapore set The Last Blood from 1991 and in the second half we discuss Sammo Hung’s politically incorrect action-comedy Pantyhose Hero. With Kenny B and Phil G.

Japan On Fire 19: Sabu – Monday

jof19

Originally recorded as one long Japan On Fire 19, it is now re-edited into a shorter episode and second half of the long recording will feature in Japan On Fire 20.

This is part 2 of our series on director Sabu after covering his first two movies Dangan Runner and Postman Blues in episode 18 of Japan On Fire. His characters ran and rode on bikes amidst droll, quirky and absurd humour as well as drama in the first two and not a lot changes as we look at Monday from 2000. Does Sabu still evolve though? With Kenny B and VCinema‘s Coffin Jon.

Running Times:
00m 00s – Intro/Recap of Sabu bio and episode one
25ms 45s – Current Japanese cinema talk (part 1)
40m 20s – Monday review

Podcast On Fire 188: The Dynasty Report – The White Haired-Witch Of Lunar Kingdom & Floating City

pof188

Three reports in and we’re still playing with the format, mixing and matching and certainly not setting any cut off point in terms of a movie being too old. Just have to be fairly new so for this episode, you’ll be hearing Paul Fox, Dr. David Lam and Kenny B talk The White Haired Witch Of Lunar Kingdom from 2014 and Floating City from 2012. One might or might not be a totally unneccssary re-thread of the novel The Bride With White Hair was based on (and it might even be a close remake) and the other is Aaaron Kwok putting away the outlandishly colored pants in favour of acting.
