Podcast On Fire 157: The Chinese Boxer & The Five Venoms

pof157

Jimmy Wang Yu was heading away from the eye of Chang Cheh’s by making his own, now classic kung-fu movie The Chinese Boxer and Chang Cheh had found new talents and vision at the end of the 70s that would lead to an impact in global popular culture through his 1978 classic The Five Venoms. The impact of the two works is discussed and dissected by Kenny B, Dr. David Lam and Tom K-W but not before the doctor shares what filth he watched last.

Podcast On Fire 87: Mike-Cast 2011

Ah…. it’s always oh so lovely when it’s The Magnificent Trio on air again! So welcome back Mike Banner to the Podcast On Fire Network! Also, we know the following questions are continually hovering inside and around people’s heads so we thought we’d answer them: Is Yuen Biao Better than Sammo and Jackie, how is Tony Jaa, where is Edison Chen and what is the ZiiEagle? Pardon the sound quality of the show (this stuff was all too good to lose), in particular from Ken’s end and do note Stoo switches to his iPhone 30 mins into the show so that’s why his sound quality worsens.

Contact us at podcastonfire at googlemail.com, via our forum, Facebook or Twitter. We’re a friendly bunch and especially watch the forums for exclusive content and announcements!
