This Week In Sleaze 21: Remains Of A Woman & Legal Innocence

twis21

Let’s talk fucking that happened for real once again! But also award winning fucking…again. Like on our The Untold Story & The Rapist episode, we’re heading into areas where Hong Kong filmmakers took real life crimes and depicted those stories on the big screen and once again, one of those efforts got an award. This episode Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal are therefore talking Clarence Fok’s Remains Of A Woman and Cha Chuen-yee’s Legal Innocence, and the real crime and court case movies are based on.

Editor’s note: Pardon the audio quality at points where we get loud, tried to reduce that as much as I could in post:

Podcast On Fire 146: Once Upon A Time In Triad Society 2

Although not part of his top 10 Hong Kong movies, naturally the excellent sequel to Once Upon A Time In Triad Society must get a spotlight courtesy of Kenny B. Especially since it’s a wild mix of satire, fun and heart!

Podcast On Fire 138: Once Upon A Time In Triad Society

BEFORE this backup show does its thing, Stoo hijacks the feed to talk of his yearly charity endevour Extra Life 2012 for The Royal Hospital For Sick Children and the looming 24 hour game marathon that goes along with it. You can support him by going to his profile page and listen in to hear how YOUR donations will affect the upcoming Podcast On Fire Network shows!

Ken did a written top 10 list for A Hero Never Dies, now he talks of the choices not yet covered on the show (see show links for more), starting with his #6: Cha Chuen-yee’s Once Upon A Time In Triad Society. The triad genre gets a much needed wake up call and kick in the nuts as it’s only fun if you’re as evil as Ugly Kwan.

Podcast on Fire 135: Milkyway Treasures – Too Many Ways To Be No.1

Let’s watch the commercial elements of triads turned on its head literally with the review of Wai Ka-fai’s Too Many Ways To Be No. 1. We also scored the authority and historian on all things late 90s triad elements, i.e. our very own Stewart Sutherland who checks in to talk life, movies, plans for The Ekin Hour, The Raid, Flowers Of War and powerslides. Subsequently Kenny B sits down separately (as Stoo’s participation was last minute) by himself (Tom’s cancellation was also last minute) to talk Hong Kong’s take on the gimmick Sliding Doors and Run Lola Run also employed. The best and most odd Milkyway Treasure yet?
