podcast18

The next Cast From The Past (a series of shows lost from our iTunes feed and website) from 2008 features Stoo, Kenny B, Mike Banner and Scott Napier. Talking last movies watched (including Fighter In The Wind and Exodus), there’s also topics discussed surrounding melodramas (ones that made you cry vs ones that you made you laugh) and the Donnie Yen lovefest on air led to this Donnie Yen lovefest on You Tube.

Films & Swearing 1 – Filth (Scotland 2013)

FilthBanner

Holy crap! I mean, HOLY SHITE! The Podcast on Fire Network is launching it’s 37,904th Podcast! Me and Andrew Walker – lifelong buddies are setting sail with our own Movie Podcast. We aren’t being shackled with the restraints of Asian Cinema, we’re taking on the world! One Movie at a time, once a week! We hope to become your mid-week movie podcast of choice! Don’t be looking for scholars, we don’t have degrees! We just shoot the breezes and shit!

At the start of each show we will tend to banter on about what’s happened this week, whether it’s what books I’m reading or what video games Andy has knocked out, then we get gritty with the Cinema. In our debut episode we give up a little back story, a user guide on Factman & Chubs, catch up talking books and TV shows. Second half of the show is decided to our first film choice; FILTH!

Opening track is; “Requiem for a Fish” (by The Freak Fandango Orchestra)

This Week In Sleaze 28: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Laboratory Of The Devil & A Narrow Escape

twis28

Let’s talk some shameless war crime exploitation, Men Behind The Sun-sploitation if you will. After Mou Tun-fei did his research and a in your face but valid examination of the human experimentation by the Japanese during World War II, exploitation cash ins appeared that resulted in 2 semi related sequels: Laboratory Of The Devil and A Narrow Escape by otherwise ninjasploitation/cut and paste sploitation director Godfrey Ho. Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal sit down for examination of watered down cash grabs.

Taiwan Noir 12: The Ghostly Face & Little Hero

taiwannoir12

We’re dudes, we love the ladies but we’re also dudes into Hong Kong and Taiwanese cinema and the KICKASS ladies. The ones that could probably take your head off if you don’t behave. Including Polly Shang Kwan, the star of BOTH of the movies we picked for this Taiwan Noir: 1973′s The Ghostly Face and Little Hero from 1978. One of them requires some weed or will make you feel like you smoked up beforehand. You’ll know which once we get to it. Taiwan reefer madness await you with Kenny B and Todd Stadtman.

This Week In Sleaze 27: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Mad Stylist & Fatal Love

twis27

Let’s talk some fucking Michael Wong. Where do you go after a rough episode historical contents-wise (we talked Men Behind The Sun last episode) to get comfortable and happy again. Some look at puppies doing cute things on the internet. We watch and talk Michael Wong movies and there are a fair few Category III movies the Wongster graced with his presence. So let’s keep it simple this episode and talk the following: Mad Stylist from 1997 and Fatal Love from 1993. Karaoke good time at one hand, pitch black in the other. Also, Al Pacino stops by.

Note that the first 18 minutes were recorded by Joshua as backup as my local file got corrupted. Hence a difference in audio, for the better,  after the break. /Ken

Podcast On Fire 179: The Way Of The Dragon & The Killer

pof179

Kenny B and Phil G talk the directorial debut of a man with a vision cut short in the form of Bruce Lee’s The Way Of The Dragon from 1972 and the movie that you point to being the John Woo movie to check out if you want to see what the world also saw in the form of The Killer from 1989.

The original recording on Phil’s side came out both noisy and a bit low so I tried to remaster the sound to listenable levels. That’s why you hear varying quality on Phil’s side throughout. /Ken

Taiwan Noir 11: Virago & The Anger

tn11

Wishing to cover the following movies anyway but now that we’re stumbling upon same actors and filmmakers again and again, the work needed to get these shows done gets reduced ever so slightly because tonight’s focus on actress Elsa Yeung and director Richard Chen means the little there is to say of them biography wise has been done. So we won’t repeat the little we know and dig as we cover 1981′s Virago (IFD’s re-title of the 1981 actioner was the more commonly known title Deadly Silver Angels) starring Elsa training women in bikinis to stab the f*ck out of men and The Anger, the Lu Hsiao-fen thriller that was the basis for the IFD cut and paste movie Inferno Thunderbolt by Godfrey Ho.

Note that the first half was recorded but lost and re-recorded under different conditions. Hence the different halves sounding somewhat different in quality. /Ken
