A filmmaker not afraid to be pleasant and also nihilistic to a degree, this is The Director’ Series 18 on David Chiang’s Will Of Iron.

The Director’s Series 16: David Chiang – Mr. Handsome

tds16

We continue analyzing the filmography of martial arts superstar turned director David Chiang and past wacky Wuxia parody and comedy slasher hybrids, we find Chiang in a latter 80s half of Hong Kong cinema. Producing frequently and more even-termpered as he lets Bill Tung and Lydia Shum mostly lead his straightly made frames. If that’s a good thing or not, find out as we take a look at David Chiang’s Mr. Handsome.

Podcast On Fire 180: Disciples Of Shaolin & The Bare-Footed Kid

pof180

There’s always moans and groans whenever remakes are announced and maybe there was in the early 90s as well when The Bare-Footed Kid was announced for remake. The original 1975 Shaw Brothers classic by Chang Cheh was getting an upgrade for modern audiences, this time helmed by Johnnie To but still at Shaw Brothers and starring singer/actor Aaron Kwok. So we thought we’d take this op to discuss both, maybe not make it into a vs match but comparisons are inevitable when Kenny B and our resident Shaw Brothers afficionado Mike Maley discuss both.
