This Week In Sleaze 62: Tightie Whitie Theatre – The Story Of Lady Sue & Madame Fung Shen’s Lover

Let’s start the we wish you a merry fucking by Chaaaaaarrrliiiie Cho-carol! In the spirit of Christmas and tradition, here on This Week In Sleaze we are talking two Charlie Cho movies as we say goodbye to this dreadful year that was 2020. In The Story Of Lady Sue, Charlie has a sweet pencil thin moustache and shoots energy bolts out of his hands and in Madam Fung Shen’s Lover, aka Demon Wet Nurse, his prowess is so mighty women literally die (or faint) after having sex with him. I think we’ve picked the right films for Christmas.  With Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal. King Who? also stops by to share his thoughts on the films.

Ken’s note: In the Taiwan Golden Horse awards-section, I mistakenly identified A Chinese Ghost Story as the recipient of the Best Film Award. It was only nominated.

pofbridehardtarget

Stepping it up cinematically and making his Wuxia pian debut, Ronny Yu emerged as a voice as one to be reckoned with. Therefore we’ll be reviewing his 1993 movie The Bride With White Hair, starring Leslie Cheung and Brigitte Lin. Fast forward to a director who was setting the action cinema on fire (and some of his actors), John Woo made his Hollywood debut with Hard Target and that’s we are reviewing also. With Kenny B and the co-host of the East Screen West Screen podcast: Paul Fox.

Taiwan Noir 23: The Fantasy Of Deer Warrior & Double Vision

taiwannoir23

Once upon a time there was a big forest and in it sat two podcasters. One found a movie based on a fairy tale about deers fighting wolves (and there’s also exotic dancing) and the other found a movie where West meets East mixed with a possibly supernatural serial killer plotting. Far apart in genre and production year, Taiwan Noir takes a look at 1961’s The Fantasy Of Deer Warrior and in the second half, Chen Kuo-fu’s Double Vision starring Tony Leung and David Morse.

tn21

We return to the universe of Peach Boy, as played by a woman, as portrayed by Taiwanese children’s fantasy filmmakers who knew a thing or two about pace, energy, special effects free for all creativity etc. And face-pissing. Hear us try and break down what makes the ‘Child Of Peach’ sequel Magic Of Spell so special. And in the second half we look at sooooort of a spirited cousin of these movies without it being a sequel: The energetic Magic Warriors.
