The grand finale to our Jackie Chan Season sees Stoo and Ken, with various degrees of pleasantness, tackle New Police Story and Little Big Soldier in detail. Also, Joey Leung of Terracotta Distribution stops by for a chat about Little Big Soldier, the process of premiering it at the 2010 Terracotta Far East Film Festival and we answer the question, what does the future hold for Jackie Chan?

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.
For those without the dvd, the commentary is available timed to video, via this playlist link or the video below:
We’ve reached another pivotal point in Jackie’s career, the 90s, and the decade that would define his worldwide status to a HUGE degree. Featuring a focus on specifically Drunken Master II and Rumble In The Bronx, Stoo and Ken are also joined by action actor, fight choreographer and action director Chris Jones (http://www.chrisjonesaction.co.uk/) throughout the show. Also interspersed into various parts of the show are contributions from fellow podcasts VCinema, East Screen/West Screen, Joey Leung of Terracotta Distribution plus past guests Brian Kirby (http://www.briankirby.net/) and author John Kreng who all share their thoughts on favourite Jackie Chan movie of the 90s.

Stoo hosts the second part of our four part Jackie Chan Special. Joining him we have James Aylmore and POF12 guest – Mike Maley. We have a good banter discussing two of Jackies highly rated movies from the eighties; Project A and Police Story.
We then continue to briefly discuss the rest of Jackies career between 83 to 89.
The start of a series of shows covering the career of the legendary Jackie Chan and if you’re a fan or casual viewer, there’s a lot to take in via Ken’s and Brian Kirby’s (of Shelf Life Clothing and Hong Kong Subtitles) 2 hour discussion of Jackie’s career in the 70s leading up to 1982. Featuring a larger spotlight on specifically Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow and The Young Master.
(Ken’s note: pardon misid’ing the box office info on The Young Master. The first movie to make 1 million at the Hong Kong Box Office was The One Armed Swordsman.)
