Podcast On Fire 184: The Dynasty Report – Overheard 3, Z Storm & The Great Hypnotist

01

Let’s get experimental! Seeing as I enjoy the company of my co-host so much and he’s got an advantage of following current Hong Kong cinema due to being IN Hong Kong (and sits on a wealth of knowledge about its current status, its players), I thought this episode would serve as an experiment, a test run of me, Kenny B, interviewing my guest about some of the latest releases. Meaning I haven’t had a chance to see, I couldn’t see nor wanted to see possibly but hey, at least the spotlight is away from me for once and onto Paul Fox. Who brings us his Hong Kong cinema June and July picks in the form of Overheard 3, Z Storm and The Great Hypnotist. Michael Wong gets mentioned many times.

Podcast On Fire 143: Tom On Fire aka Taste Better Here Or In The West?

The so far quite much beloved Tom On Fire segment returns in a big bad way as Tom brings the following topics to the table that you can follow along with and discuss at home:

*How, as we’ve got older and our tastes for cinema in general have changed has this changed the way we approach Asian cinema?

*Do we feel in anyway certain performers or directors get TOO much attention in the West, or too much attention from fans in general ?

Also featuring a possibly controversial review of The Raid: Redemption, Daniel Wu and Kevin Spacey as superheroes and Kenny B watched a Korean movie?
