Commentary On Fire 8: The Seventh Curse (1986)

On this episode of Commentary on Fire we will be missing out on the deep Swedish knowledge of Kenneth Brorsson but he’s replaced by four Scottish blokes who have never heard of Nam Nai-Choi! Stewart invites 3 of his friends around to watch the wackiest B-Movie around: The Seventh Curse (or by the end of the night The Kentucky Fried Curse). This might make no sense at all but it is just a wee experiment.:D

For those without the dvd the commentary is available timed to video, via this playlist link or the video below:

 

Commentary On Fire 7: King Of Comedy (1999)

Stephen Chow’s King Of Comedy gets the Commentary on Fire treatment (also sans research) as Stoo and Ken tries to dissect this extreme mulit-mood experience coming from the king of comedy. Does anyone want to count how many times we get full frontal, little boy nudity in this one?

Commentary On Fire 6: Vampire Season #2: Mr. Vampire 2 (1986)

Welcome back kids! Yes, for the second installment of ‘Vampire Season’ Stoo and Ken are stepping into the commentary booth to share their thoughts on the often neglected, unusual sequel to the highly influential Mr. Vampire. It’s got goo, hop, chases, bazookas, montages and is clearly aimed at the kids?! Listen in to find out how it all gels… if at all.

For those without the dvd, you can find the commentary timed to video, in 2 parts, here.

Commentary on Fire 5: Island of Fire (1990)

We extend our coverage of the Jackie Chan 90s Special (available HERE) with a commentary on the often hated, sometimes hailed ensemble prison drama, co-starring Sammo Hung, Tony Leung and Andy Lau. For shits and giggles, Stoo and Ken decides to NOT prepare with any research. An experiment that may mean our worst commentary yet? Play your Hong Kong Legends dvd along with us and find out!

Excuse the audio problems during the last 30 minutes or so on primarily Ken’s end.

 

Commentary On Fire 4: Scared Stiff (1987)

Strap yourselves in even AFTER watching Lau Kar-wing’s multi-mood classic Scared Stiff as the commentary by Stoo and Ken attempts to deconstruct this wild one out of the busy Hong Kong cinema scene of the 80s. Remember the robot thrusting motion come ending time…

Ken’s note: I meant to say Yuen Wah worked as action director at Shaw’s for a while, not director.

Podcast On Fire 70: I know what you did last Sunday before AND after the commentary

Listen in to hear what it takes to start a Commentary On Fire and off-air banter post-commentary follows with the trio of Stoo, Ken and Mike Leeder. It managed to be fun, informative and LONG enough to warrant a little regular Podcast On Fire. Have fun!

Commentary On Fire 3: Enter The Fat Dragon

The long overdue return of our series of audio commentaries continues with a dissection of Sammo Hung’s Enter The Fat Dragon. Joining Stoo and Ken is Mike Leeder and expect a whole lot of fun with discussion on Bruce Lee, Bruceploitation and Sammo’s loving, comedic tribute to the late legend. Excuse some of the audio problems at a few points. We’re still a low-fi unit at POF HQ.
