Podcast On Fire 206: The Dynasty Report – Rigor Mortis & Aberdeen

pofRIGORABERDEEN

A young, debut director brings back faces of Hong Kong-horror of yesteryear for a celebration/making something new and visionary without being retro. How does Juno Mak’s Rigor Mortis therefore fare? And after gory times in Dream Home, Pang Ho-cheung gears down for the family drama that is Abderdeen. Hear Paul Fox and Dr. Lam submit a new Dynasty Report.

tds16

We continue analyzing the filmography of martial arts superstar turned director David Chiang and past wacky Wuxia parody and comedy slasher hybrids, we find Chiang in a latter 80s half of Hong Kong cinema. Producing frequently and more even-termpered as he lets Bill Tung and Lydia Shum mostly lead his straightly made frames. If that’s a good thing or not, find out as we take a look at David Chiang’s Mr. Handsome.

Podcast On Fire 136: Milkyway Treasures – Final Justice

Enter a new filmmaker at Milkyway: Derek Chiu! Just like Johnnie To, Chiu had the finger on the pulse of quirky but Final Justice deals in religion, forgiveness, alleged rape, Eric Tsang as a vicious triad boss and the court room-drama. Still not conventional nor a hit for Milkyway but how does it work as an intelligent examination in intent? Kenny B is at hand to give you his take on it.
