Podcast On Fire 139: Milkyway Treasures – Comeuppance & Sealed With A Kiss

Kenny B is cheating a little by taking a detour into the 2000’s for the Milkyway Treasures of the 90s but it’s warranted as one of the directors they wished to push and promote was Derek Chiu! Up for review is therefore is his black comedy Comeuppance (2000) and the island set romance Sealed With A Kiss (1999). Neither being conventional or for mainstream consumption. Also in the network updates and last movies watched, hear Kenny’s thoughts on why it’s a good and bad choice to have Hong Kong actors speaking English in yet another Bloodsport clone.

Podcast On Fire 136: Milkyway Treasures – Final Justice

Enter a new filmmaker at Milkyway: Derek Chiu! Just like Johnnie To, Chiu had the finger on the pulse of quirky but Final Justice deals in religion, forgiveness, alleged rape, Eric Tsang as a vicious triad boss and the court room-drama. Still not conventional nor a hit for Milkyway but how does it work as an intelligent examination in intent? Kenny B is at hand to give you his take on it.

Podcast on Fire 135: Milkyway Treasures – Too Many Ways To Be No.1

Let’s watch the commercial elements of triads turned on its head literally with the review of Wai Ka-fai’s Too Many Ways To Be No. 1. We also scored the authority and historian on all things late 90s triad elements, i.e. our very own Stewart Sutherland who checks in to talk life, movies, plans for The Ekin Hour, The Raid, Flowers Of War and powerslides. Subsequently Kenny B sits down separately (as Stoo’s participation was last minute) by himself (Tom’s cancellation was also last minute) to talk Hong Kong’s take on the gimmick Sliding Doors and Run Lola Run also employed. The best and most odd Milkyway Treasure yet?
