Commentary On Fire 13: Rouge

cof14

It seems based on the podcast-crew and time we have at our disposal that Commentary On Fire is now a once a year endeavour and this time we take matters a bit more seriously. It’s the challenge to do the commentary straight-faced but fun and most importantly INFO makes its way into the track for Stanley Kwan’s 1988 supernatural romance Rouge, starring Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung. With Kenny B and Tom K-W.

Also viewable timed to video in 5 parts on Daily Motion: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5.

Asia On Film are pleased to announce they have gotten a small stock of the very rare book Eastern Heroes: Deadly China Dolls. Originally published in 1994, here’s the pitch from Asia On Film;

Finally this most rare 1994 book is back in stock! If one of the reasons that you have tuned into Hong Kong films is the plethora of beautiful charismatic Asian actresses, this is an essential book for you. The entire subject matter is focused on these women that so enliven the screen.

All your favoUrites are discussed here with particular emphasis on the action heroines. Many of the early action goddesses are covered such as Ivy Ling Po, Lilly Lee, Angela Mao, Judy Lee, Polly Kwan and Hui Ying Hung. Not only are their careers discussed, but information about their personal lives is also included at times.

Much space is obviously devoted to the great femme fatales of the 1980’s – Moon Lee, Yukari Oshima, Cynthia Khan, Michiko Nishawaki,The Heroic Trio – Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung & Anita Mui. And just about any other of the action starlets are in here somewhere.

Commentary On Fire 4: Scared Stiff (1987) – You Tube Edition

Here you’ll find  the commentary on You Tube timed to video.

Strap yourselves in even AFTER watching Lau Kar-wing’s multi-mood classic Scared Stiff as the commentary by Stoo and Ken attempts to deconstruct this wild one out of the busy Hong Kong cinema scene of the 80s. Remember the robot thrusting motion come ending time…

Ken’s note: I meant to say Yuen Wah worked as action director at Shaw’s for a while, not director.
