The Golden Ninja Podcast 2: Diamond Ninja Force & Ninja Commandments

tgnp2

For this series, we aim to go through the different phases at IFD, from the phase were ninjas were popular, to ones where they tried out kickboxing tint to their cut and paste movies and created their own superhero etc but for episode 2 we’ll stay in ninja territory to give you all yet another aural examination of cut and paste ninja action fun. Fun that is enhanced by the fact that paired up with the IFD footage are genres hardly associated with ninja action: horror and melodrama. So therefore we are discussing Diamond Ninja Force and Ninja Commandments for this episode. With Kenny B and Ed Glaser, the owner and president of Neon Harbour and director of Ninja The Mission Force.

With Kenny B and Tom K-W.

This Week In Sleaze 30: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Intimate Confessions Of A Chinese Courtesan & Lust For Love Of A Chinese Courtesan

twis30

Let’s talk some high class fucking! Meaning we turn to the more explicit, sleazier side of the big studio Shaw Brothers but they were not all about the kung fu and swordplay. Oh, from The Knight Of Knights (covered on This Week In Sleaze 5) and onwards, erotica trickled its way into these classy, gorgeous period epics that could also feature swordplay and gore. That’s where we find Intimate Confessions Of A Chinese Courtesan from director Chor Yuen. We’ll be talking of that as well as the Chor Yuen directed remake from 1984 called Lust For Love Of A Chinese Courtesan.

twis29

Let’s talk some fucking shameless war crime exploitation, maybe not for the last time but certainly the last of the serious chats on that topic connected to filmmaker Mou Tun-fei. A planned trilogy of movies starting with Men Behind The Sun, Mou popped back up again in 1995 to continue his study of Japanese war atrocities in graphic detail. This time turning to the 1930s and the Nanking Massacre IN his movie Black Sun: The Nanking Massacre.

Taiwan Noir 13: Devil Returns & Kill For Love

taiwannoir13

It’s important to sometime note that part of the selection process for these episodes are about detailing my (Kenny B that is) own journey through this era of Taiwanese movies, mainly late 70s, early 80s. It’s about the disocvery of directors, performers, movies, classic scenes, iconic moments and about trying to explain my comfort factor watching these movies, moments and performers. That means even the stinkers and the mediocrity deserves a voice. That is our long winded way of saying welcome to Taiwan Noir 13 on Richard Chen’s Devil Returns and Kill For Love with Kenny B and  Tood Stadtman.

What’s Korean Cinema? 13 – Chilsu And Mansu & Nowhere To Hide

wkc13

What do you get when pairing up movies where the still and straightforward is mindblowing and when the rabid, perfectly indulgent is also mindblowing? Am not sure but you get enough reason for the crew here at What’s Korean Cinema? to examine two classic works, starting with Park Kwang-su’s 1988 drama Chilsu And Mansu and in the second half, Lee Myung-se’s 1999 hyper-stylized hunt for an assassin Nowhere To Hide is covered. Connection between the movies you ask? Well if you did, here’s the answer, the male leads are the same. With Kenny B, Hangul Celluloid‘s Paul Quinn and Rufus De Rham, Director of Operations/Associate Programmer at New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) and Editor in Chief at cineAWESOME!

Special thanks to Henrik Andersson for remastering the original recording.
