Where the hell is HER!? I hear you ask? Well we recorded it on Friday – correction! We spoke about HER on Friday for a few hours, just forgot to open the software that records our Skype call. My bad! So we attempted to re-record on Monday – my Virgin Media “Super” Hub shat the bed and on Tuesday – Andy shat the bed.

SOOOO we’ve jumped ahead one episode to our SUPER SPOILER review of Godzilla (2014).

Podcast On Fire 181: Mad Monkey Kung Fu & Wild Search

pof181

Let’s take a look at THE Shaw Brothers director that made kung fu comedy great when they attempted to respond to that booming trend. Namely Lau Kar-leung and his Mad Monkey Kung Fu from 1979. Also in this episode, a look at when a Hong Kong director everybody cried for when Quentin Tarantino “took” his movie away from him but when he took someone elses…template himself. We didn’t mind it for Reservoir Dogs vs Ringo Lam’s City On Fire and sure as hell didn’t when Lam made his own take on the Harrison Ford movie Witness in the form of Wild Search from 1989. With Kenny B and Phil G who also recaps his trip to China and meeting Jackie Chan.

Podcast On Fire 180: Disciples Of Shaolin & The Bare-Footed Kid

pof180

There’s always moans and groans whenever remakes are announced and maybe there was in the early 90s as well when The Bare-Footed Kid was announced for remake. The original 1975 Shaw Brothers classic by Chang Cheh was getting an upgrade for modern audiences, this time helmed by Johnnie To but still at Shaw Brothers and starring singer/actor Aaron Kwok. So we thought we’d take this op to discuss both, maybe not make it into a vs match but comparisons are inevitable when Kenny B and our resident Shaw Brothers afficionado Mike Maley discuss both.
