Podcast On Fire 179: The Way Of The Dragon & The Killer

pof179

Kenny B and Phil G talk the directorial debut of a man with a vision cut short in the form of Bruce Lee’s The Way Of The Dragon from 1972 and the movie that you point to being the John Woo movie to check out if you want to see what the world also saw in the form of The Killer from 1989.

The original recording on Phil’s side came out both noisy and a bit low so I tried to remaster the sound to listenable levels. That’s why you hear varying quality on Phil’s side throughout. /Ken

Taiwan Noir 7: Golden Queen’s Commando & Pink Force Commando

postimage

Take a bunch of good looking, iconic girls, plant them in movie reality courtesy of die hard movie nerd Chu Yen-Ping and you get products that probably outrages most rather than delights but that’s ok. It sparks conversation if it’s an homage or not to steal so many scenes from other movies and their music for your own. For this episode of Taiwan Noir therefore you have to imagine a paralell movie world where everything is possible. We got 80s pop star haircuts, a wild west town with 80s style grafitti, Chinese Nazis, the Ku Klux Clan and a lot is set to Ennio Morricone’s music. It’s of course a double bill of Taiwanese reefer madness in the form of Golden Queen’s Commando and Pink Force Commando! In Last Taiwanese Movies Watched, there’s challenges in devil areas and Joey Wong in a boobie flick that is equally short and long.

Cast From The Past: Podcast on Fire 10: Andy Lau = Saviour

One of the early episodes lost to some website issues, we’re re-posting it while at the same time adding the cut conversations and outtakes previously only available on the forum as a BONUS EPISODE. So get the full context with Stoo, Kenny B and Mike Banner as they talk of suiitable introductory movies when it comes to Hong Kong cinema, books, Taiwanese war movies and an hour in a tipsy Mike gets abuse.
