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.

pof182

Dr. Lam heads Paul Fox and Kenny B into the territories of buff bods, explosions and man-tears. That of course means a roundtable chat between friends on all things Dante Lam, Nick Cheung and the MMA movie they collaborated on called Unbeatable. The trio also have time to dive deep into views on Pang Ho-cheung’s Dream Home, Chow Yun-fat’s return to Hong Kong cinema gambling, Michael Wong and Hong Kong cinema profiles making Mainland movies.

This Week In Sleaze 27: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Mad Stylist & Fatal Love

twis27

Let’s talk some fucking Michael Wong. Where do you go after a rough episode historical contents-wise (we talked Men Behind The Sun last episode) to get comfortable and happy again. Some look at puppies doing cute things on the internet. We watch and talk Michael Wong movies and there are a fair few Category III movies the Wongster graced with his presence. So let’s keep it simple this episode and talk the following: Mad Stylist from 1997 and Fatal Love from 1993. Karaoke good time at one hand, pitch black in the other. Also, Al Pacino stops by.

Note that the first 18 minutes were recorded by Joshua as backup as my local file got corrupted. Hence a difference in audio, for the better,  after the break. /Ken

This Week In Sleaze 22: Tightie White Theatre – Human Pork Chop & There Is A Secret In My Soup

twis22Another pair of movies made about the same crime that came out the same year, on the same day. Exploitation productions running towards the finishing line in an era that wasn’t exactly filled with these types of depictions like you had in 1992-1993. But in 2001, a bit of a race occurred when it was rumoured this story was going into production for depiction and it resulted in Human Pork Chop and There Is A Secret In My Soup. Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal give you the grisly details in their reviews.
