Podcast On Fire 43: Urban Hong Kong Celebrity Survivor

podcast43

Sans Mike Banner, Stoo and Ken are joined by James Aylmore but before, Ken feels the need to spoil the entire plot of Scared Stiff (starring Eric Tsang, Miu Kiu-Wai and Chow Yun-Fat) so if you desperately want to avoid hearing about its ending (you should in some ways avoid the flick to tell you the truth), skip listening between 00:03:00 to the 00:20:00. We will then be back to discuss the latest development in the already old Edison Chen Sexy Photo Gate. Next development: You’re off the island, son!

Protégé De La Rose Noire (2004)

ProtegeDeLaRoseNoire

When two new friends find out they are homeless both of them seek to find shelter as soon as possible. Yet they find an offer that’s too good to refuse. Both friends want the vacancy for themselves. But it turns out they weren’t just applying to rent room, they’ve become the two latest assistants of Rose…

First of is Gillian (Gillian Chung) a very intelligent college student, who’s introduction shows a lot of her character. With her beating up her tutor after he called her by her full name, let me tell you know it’s a ‘No No’. So she decides to go home…

Charlene (Charlene Choi) is a bright pink jelly like alien, who is one of many other identical blobby-like aliens. She has been sent to earth as a teenager to study humans and how they live. At first she lived in home for pregnant women with no families. But after many pregnancy tests they finally booted her out. Charlene begins looking around for a home…

Yet Gillians family home turns out to be the same home Charlene is looking for, since Gillians family moved out long ago without telling her.

Both Gillian and Charlene meets a chatty taxi driver (who hasn’t?) called Jim Lo (Ekin Cheng). But they love to call him J.Lo, after the two friends’ cause Jim to crack the window shield of his taxi. Yet the two cant pay for the damages, so Jim gives them his card and tells them to phone him when they have the cash.

After a near death experience Gillian and Charlene meet The Black Rose (Teresa Mo). The Black Rose is a Superhero in hiding; she is continually trying to stop the dreaded LavensCan Gang Which consists of four lovely ladies, all of them deadly. Their leader also happens to be Roses daughter, played by Model Faith Woo.

Rose also has her own pet robot. Yes, known as ‘Jacket’ it’s a simple machine that protects Rose and the Twins from any males and is programmed to destroy and ‘dick-like’ object, yes ‘dick-like’.

Protégé De La Rose Noire is a combination of wacky, silly, humorous, giggly, childish comedy. If you cant really imagine it, it tends to remind you of ‘The Sixty Million Dollar Man’ with Stephen Chow. Mixed with ‘The Twins Effect’ which also starred Ekin Cheng and The Twins, with Donnie Yen as action director.

This film seems to be a bit of a let down to everyone in the film, which is a shame really. I think Donnie Yens attempt to tackle the Comedy genre wasn’t for the best. Twins effect had the mix of action and comedy, which worked well and even helped it pick up over 9 different awards!

Protégé De La Rose Noire is worth a watch. A quote from my friend ‘Watch able for the pure Eye Candy’. The even has a little of Kill Bill feel to it, with a schoolgirl baddy and the guitar playing in the background. So if you like to see The Twins in a bubble bath and Ekin Cheng dressed up as Robin feel free to watch this flick!
