Podcast On Fire 181: Mad Monkey Kung Fu & Wild Search

pof181

Let’s take a look at THE Shaw Brothers director that made kung fu comedy great when they attempted to respond to that booming trend. Namely Lau Kar-leung and his Mad Monkey Kung Fu from 1979. Also in this episode, a look at when a Hong Kong director everybody cried for when Quentin Tarantino “took” his movie away from him but when he took someone elses…template himself. We didn’t mind it for Reservoir Dogs vs Ringo Lam’s City On Fire and sure as hell didn’t when Lam made his own take on the Harrison Ford movie Witness in the form of Wild Search from 1989. With Kenny B and Phil G who also recaps his trip to China and meeting Jackie Chan.

The Director’s Series 12: Kirk Wong – Taking Manhattan & Crime Story

tds12

He went abroad, to New York specifically to broaden his take on action (although it took 4 years between Gunmen and his next movie) and went into business with Jackie Chan for high profile action with the star taken down a notch and asked to act. Plus not so loving clashes, as opposed to the story on Gunmen, with said star. This is The Director’s Series on Kirk Wong’s Taking Manhattan and Crime Story.

Podcast On Fire 165: Police Story & Shanghai Blues

pof165

Back in the saddle to discuss Hong Kong cinema classics (or not) but rather Hong Kong cinema’s prolific movies and filmmakers and the selection this is time Kenny B’s. We’ll be talking the box office smash and Best Picture winner at that year’s Hong Kong Film Awards: Jackie Chan’s Police Story (1985). Leave no glass or glass table unsmashed! Also in the second half, a personal favourite of Tsui Hark’s, the one he’s described as starting everything: 1984’s Shanghai Blues.
