Podcast On Fire 188: The Dynasty Report – The White Haired-Witch Of Lunar Kingdom & Floating City

pof188

Three reports in and we’re still playing with the format, mixing and matching and certainly not setting any cut off point in terms of a movie being too old. Just have to be fairly new so for this episode, you’ll be hearing Paul Fox, Dr. David Lam and Kenny B talk The White Haired Witch Of Lunar Kingdom from 2014 and Floating City from 2012. One might or might not be a totally unneccssary re-thread of the novel The Bride With White Hair was based on (and it might even be a close remake) and the other is Aaaron Kwok putting away the outlandishly colored pants in favour of acting.

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.

Aaron Kwok “Murderer” Trailer

Here is the trailer for the new Aaron Kwok crime thriller; Murderer. Sourced from Twitch Film the plot is;

In it Kwok stars as a police detective suffering from memory lapses who – in the course of investigating a murder – realizes that he himself is the prime suspect.

It looks pretty good, spiffy hair cuts too, Mike Banner would be proud!

Personal Highlight; Mother f*cking Chin Kar-Lok!

The Storm Warriors full trailer online!

Possibly the most anticpated Hong Kong movie for me this year has to be “The Storm Warriors”, the Pang brothers directing the sequel to the hit “Stormriders”. From the looks of the trailer, Christmas can’t come sooner! I might just have to fly to Hong Kong to see the movie on the 17th. It just looks so damn good! so good! I plan on write more about this as soon as possible, if I get my act together you might be able to read about this the magazines. Peace Out!
