Podcast On Fire 201: Wheels On Meals & Crippled Avengers

pof201

From Hong Kong to Spain and back to Hong Kong and back in time again, for this episode we follow the three brothers (i.e. Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao) as they take their martial arts action comedy formula to Spain and into a meal-van in Wheels On Meals. And we then transfer from 1984 to 1978 and onto the Shaw Brothers lot where director Chang Cheh were building iron men to fight each other essentially, in Crippled Avengers. The Venoms are back and are now handicapped fighters.

Podcast On Fire 157: The Chinese Boxer & The Five Venoms

pof157

Jimmy Wang Yu was heading away from the eye of Chang Cheh’s by making his own, now classic kung-fu movie The Chinese Boxer and Chang Cheh had found new talents and vision at the end of the 70s that would lead to an impact in global popular culture through his 1978 classic The Five Venoms. The impact of the two works is discussed and dissected by Kenny B, Dr. David Lam and Tom K-W but not before the doctor shares what filth he watched last.
