Podcast on Fire 82: Jackie Chan Special Part 4 – 2000 – ????

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?

If you’re one of our lucky forum members, you’re also treated to a lengthy extra discussion on Shinjuku Incident but it doesn’t take a lot to be AS lucky as those members. Just visit http://www.podcastonfire.com/forum/ and a short, FREE registration later will get you to this meaty extra as well as countless others!

Commentary on Fire 5: Island of Fire (1990) YouTube Edition

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? If you don’t have the Hong Kong Legends dvd, we offer up the commentary timed to video of the movie so no one is left out. Conveniently arranged in a playlist HERE (that also includes our four previous commentaries), below you’ll see the first out of 10 parts.
