Podcast On Fire 78: Cut and censored… but at least you can hear it

Separated for long, Stoo picks up the Korean round-up ball as well as taking the throne of the only one who liked Storm Warriors. For Ken it’s back to the torture chamber, the land of girls unbuttoned and we go over our thoughts on censored Hong Kong movies that still remain classics to this day. A massive 1 minute, 25 second deleted conversation can also be found in our MEMBERS ONLY section (available via a simple registration on our forum) but it’s the most thrilling minute and a half of your life!

Ken’s note : Pardon the loud microphone on my end, the adjusting in Skype tends to be sensitve. Either too loud or too low.
