What’s Korean Cinema? 20 – Secret Sunshine

wkc20

From a director who makes the most out of his sporadic filmmaking, we find Lee Chang-dong directing a lead performance with enough acting for 3 movies. So is his 140 minute drama Secret Sunshine from 2007, about grief, belief and emotional trauma worth the investment. Or do we need to watch vidoes of puppies to cleanse? Find out with Kenny B and Hangul Celluloid‘s Paul Quinn.

Running Times: 
00m 00s – Intro/Lee Chang-dong bio & discission
28m 52s – Song Kang-ho and Yeon Do-jeon discussion
36m 10s – Secret Sunshine review

They wanted more Game Of Death, they got more Enter The Dragon. So yet another movie was made “starring” Bruce Lee and actually also starring one of the official doubles for Game Of Death. Not obscured anymore, we follow Tong Lung to the Tower Of Death. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast.

Podcast On Fire 202: Game Of Death

pof202

In the wake of Bruce Lee’s death, there was popularity at its peak and savvy producers, high profile or not, started to exploit the image of him by casting other people looking semi to not similiar at all. Hence your Bruce Le’s, Li’s, Dragon Lee and so forth. When Golden Harvest decided to try and structure a movie around Bruce’s unfinished movie Game Of Death, the result was big and high profile and find out in this episode how this attempt at honoring the late great Lee fares as several actors playing Lee (along with footage from elsewhere) gather for 1978’s Game Of Death. With Kenny B and East Screen West Screen‘s Paul Fox.

pof201

From Hong Kong to Spain and back to Hong Kong and back in time again, for this episode we follow the three brothers (i.e. Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao) as they take their martial arts action comedy formula to Spain and into a meal-van in Wheels On Meals. And we then transfer from 1984 to 1978 and onto the Shaw Brothers lot where director Chang Cheh were building iron men to fight each other essentially, in Crippled Avengers. The Venoms are back and are now handicapped fighters.
