Podcast On Fire 308: Young And Dangerous: The Prequel & Golden Job

Sandwiched in between Young And Dangerous 5 and its concluding part Born To Be King, Andrew Lau and Manfred Wong take us back to the past Hung Hing boys. Played by other boys. It’s Young And Dangerous: The Prequel and as a send off to the coverage despite having no narrative connection to the universe, we then fast forward to a 2018 heist movie directed by Chin Kar-Lok that functioned as a Y & D cast reunion film. Yes, even Jerry Lamb is here, in Golden Job. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast.

Running Times:

00m 00s – Intro/Young And Dangerous: The Prequel review

Podcast On Fire 297: Young And Dangerous 5 & The Legendary “Tai Fei”

The 5th entry in the Young And Dangerous triad saga appeared in 1998. So as the series and the Hung Hing boys grow older, how’s the quality at this point? Find out as we discuss Young And Dangerous 5. And in 1999,  someone thought it would be a good idea to give greasy haired, nose picking Tai Fei his grand spin off back story so Anthony Wong came back as the rather memorable, loud but morally upright triad character Tai Fei for his own film The Legendary “Tai Fei”. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast.

Running Times:
