pofmummie97aces

We continue to ask ourselves: Team Tam or not Team Tam? Welcome to Podcast On Fire and the Alan Tam Crapping Hour. As for the first movie up for review, Mummy Dearest is a lesser known Ronny Yu movie where Tam plays a serial killer. Also in the second half, the Aces Go Places formula or franchise comes back for air in 97 Aces Go Places. Is it a breath of fresh air? Well Alan Tam plays dual roles so make of that what you will. With Kenny B as always to discuss all things Team Tam or not Team is Eastern Film Fans head honcho Phil G.

Taiwan Noir 23: The Fantasy Of Deer Warrior & Double Vision

taiwannoir23

Once upon a time there was a big forest and in it sat two podcasters. One found a movie based on a fairy tale about deers fighting wolves (and there’s also exotic dancing) and the other found a movie where West meets East mixed with a possibly supernatural serial killer plotting. Far apart in genre and production year, Taiwan Noir takes a look at 1961’s The Fantasy Of Deer Warrior and in the second half, Chen Kuo-fu’s Double Vision starring Tony Leung and David Morse.

pofNORISK

In this episode, No Risk No Gain (Casino Raiders The Sequel, but it isn’t one) pairs up Alan Tam with Andy Lau once again while Wong Jing takes a backseat and Taylor Wong takes his place as co-director. Uh oh. Also in the second half, the Lucky Stars gang…barely appears and we get another lecherous, silly bunch trying to fill 90 minutes of action-comedy. Cue the rape-jokes. And cue the hosts Kenny B and Eastern Film Fans head honcho Phil G.
