pofMACAU3FULLSTRIKE

The first one ka-ching but awful, the second one ka-ching but awful, the third haaaalf-ching but awful. Three strikes for Wong Jing and his From Vegas To Macau-franchise so is this it then? Who knows but maybe it’s the last time Paul Fox and Dr. David Lam will review one of these movies before moving on and out of celluloid hell. Also reviewed, a Hong Kong badminton movie from a Best Picture winning director in the form of Full Strike, starring Ekin Cheng and Josie Ho.

We continue to ask ourselves: Team Tam or not Team Tam? Welcome to Podcast On Fire and the Alan Tam Crapping Hour. As for the first movie up for review, Mummy Dearest is a lesser known Ronny Yu movie where Tam plays a serial killer. Also in the second half, the Aces Go Places formula or franchise comes back for air in 97 Aces Go Places. Is it a breath of fresh air? Well Alan Tam plays dual roles so make of that what you will. With Kenny B as always to discuss all things Team Tam or not Team is Eastern Film Fans head honcho Phil G.

In this episode, No Risk No Gain (Casino Raiders The Sequel, but it isn’t one) pairs up Alan Tam with Andy Lau once again while Wong Jing takes a backseat and Taylor Wong takes his place as co-director. Uh oh. Also in the second half, the Lucky Stars gang…barely appears and we get another lecherous, silly bunch trying to fill 90 minutes of action-comedy. Cue the rape-jokes. And cue the hosts Kenny B and Eastern Film Fans head honcho Phil G.
