Podcast On Fire 233: Legend Of A Fighter & Aces Go Places II

poflegendofaaces2

After being in the zone as kung fu comedy filmmakers and action-performers, the Yuen Clan or family turned to a real legend and more of an attempt at serious filmmaking. Therefore we talk and review Yuen Woo-Ping’s Legend Of A Fighter in the first half. In the second, we turn to the follow up the Cinema City’s action-comedy cashcow Aces Go Places. This time, there’s robots. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast.

Taiwan Noir 24: Mars Men & Superriders Against The Devils

tn24

The Asian film industry of the mid 70s was infused with the spirit of sharing–or, at least, borrowing. And often without permission. One of the results of this was a series of incredibly strange hybrid superhero films that were just as likely to include figures from Thai folklore as they were mad scientists and damsels in distress. In this episode therefore we’ll be discussing two of these pan-Asian franken-films, Mars Men and Superriders Against The Devils.

This Week In Sleaze 49: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Midnight & Lan Kwai Fong Swingers

twis49

Let’s talk some fucking stampeding, birthday party-rape and shameless exploitation filmmaking! Yes, proving that making a skin flick is not low enough, one time director Cheung Chung-chi decided to frame a Charlie Cho bonk-a-thon around a real life New Years Eve tragedy. That became Lan Kwai Fong Swingers from 1993. But in the first half in this is our Christmas special, things happen at the stroke of midnight and that’s when Dark Charlie comes out. Co-starring in this case in the hostess drama Midnight from 1987. It’s a merry Charlie Cho Christmas with Sleazy K, The Great Lord Joshua Regal and making his return to the show: King Who!

pofbridehardtarget

Stepping it up cinematically and making his Wuxia pian debut, Ronny Yu emerged as a voice as one to be reckoned with. Therefore we’ll be reviewing his 1993 movie The Bride With White Hair, starring Leslie Cheung and Brigitte Lin. Fast forward to a director who was setting the action cinema on fire (and some of his actors), John Woo made his Hollywood debut with Hard Target and that’s we are reviewing also.
