Podcast On Fire 187: Face/Off & Hong Kong 1941

pof187

Podcast On Fire may focus on the known and the big guns out of Hong Kong cinema, classics or not, but no one’s demanding the programming to be strict or they’ll tune out so for this episode, based on the suggestion of our guest, we switch it up and head to part of the Hollywood filmography of a Hong Kong director. Namely John Woo and his third outing in America from 1997 called Face/Off. For our second review, we’re following among other things an actor on top of his game but not quite ready to be embraced by the public. Still, didn’t stop awards juries from giving Chow Yun-fat accolades for his performance in Leung Po-chih’s 1984 war drama Hong Kong 1941. With Kenny B and special guest Dr. Stan Glick.

Taiwan Noir 15: The Ghost Hill & The Fly Dragon Mountain

tn15

It’s time Taiwan Noir took a step back to Taiwan cinema swordplay or Wuxia pian. They had some juice, some fuel that could stack up with what Shaw Brothers and Golden Harvest were doing despite being the little kid in terms of size of industry and maybe even means. So Kenny B and Todd Stadtman therefore talk Ting Shan-hsi’s The Ghost Hill and Chen Hung-min’s The Fly Dragon Mountain for this episode.

Japan On Fire 18: Sabu – Dangan Runner & Postman Blues

jof18

We are starting a new series on a particular figure out of Japanese cinema. I don’t know of many so I pick the ones I know and years ago I was recommended checking out the work of Sabu. I responded well, put down the fandom but now that there is a podcast series on Japanese cinema I’m involved in, it’s a good op to pick up where I left off/revisit what I liked in the first place. That is to setup that for a couple of episodes we’ll be talking of director Sabu and for this episode his first two movies: Dangan Runner from 1996 and Postman Blues from 1997. With me Kenny B and VCinema‘s Coffin Jon.

Running Times:
00m 00s – Intro/Sabu bio/discussion
43ms 37s – Dangan Runner review
67m 50s - Shinichi Tsutsumi bio/discussion
86m 20s - Postman Blues review

It’s a matter of honor. It’s a matter of life and death. His body destroyed by drugs.  He must struggle fiercly to reach the top. When the blood stops flowing, one man stands alone.
