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.

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)

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.

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.
