Podcast On Fire 212: Project A2 & Infernal Affairs

pofPROJECTAINFERNAL

Jackie Chan returns with another ‘Project A’. Sans his peking opera brothers Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao but with a bunch of new action creativity and silent movie style stunts nonetheless. And we also discuss the movie that breathed needed life into Hong Kong cinema and broke out onto the world stage: Infernal Affairs. With Kenny B and Phil G.

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.

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:
