Podcast On Fire 165: Police Story & Shanghai Blues

pof165

Back in the saddle to discuss Hong Kong cinema classics (or not) but rather Hong Kong cinema’s prolific movies and filmmakers and the selection this is time Kenny B’s. We’ll be talking the box office smash and Best Picture winner at that year’s Hong Kong Film Awards: Jackie Chan’s Police Story (1985). Leave no glass or glass table unsmashed! Also in the second half, a personal favourite of Tsui Hark’s, the one he’s described as starting everything: 1984’s Shanghai Blues.

Podcast Without Honor And Humanity 100! Kenny B guests!

5623642

No new Podcast On Fire this weekend (editing in process, computer trouble etc) but I urge you all to listen to Jacob Feltner’s 100TH EPISODE of Podcast Without Honor And Humanity or simply give Big Jake a pat on the back for a job well done establishing such a KEY presence in the Asian cinema podcasting community.

He inspires me daily and I was glad and honored to be a guest on this episode talking Tsui Hark’s The Blade (which is the second of three reviews, others being Satoshi Kon’s Perfect Blue and Kinji Fukasaku’s Battle Royale, in this epic big 100). Click link below or image above to access the show and congratulations Jake!

Our Scottish team of Stoo and Andy are in the Vincent Zhao-years of the Once Upon A Time In China-series as parts 4 and 5 are discussed in this episode! Our audio equipment goes a little screw-ball-scramble towards the second half but the worst is edited out.

Podcast On Fire 150: Once Upon A Time In China 2 & 3

postimage

The Scottish edition of Podcast On Fire with Stoo and Andy carry on with their Once Upon A Time In China coverage, with towel- and flaming arrows action from Jet Li and Donnie Yen. Which can only mean parts 2 and 3 are up for discussion. The audio is a little wonky, but that thankfully should be the last…the last of the wonk.
