True life Hong Kong crime on film is a staple of Category III film but often in a grisly manner. Serial killers, rapists, cannibalism, that sort of thing. But crime comes in different forms and in this episode we take a look at the kidnapping case of businessman Teddy Wang. A story adapted into a Jackie Chan film but also into a cheapo Wong Jing film: Kidnap Of Wong Chak Fai. With Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal. Read More

Wong Jing makes his Wong Jing film, which means he steals from all other films but he lets his action director be the star of the show as well, in Magic Crystal from 1986. Also, actor Richard Norton goes down Magic Crystal memory lane in an extended conversation mid-episode. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast. Read More
Let’s talk some naughty and nice fucking! Or rather movies operating on the silly, cruel and rather pleasant scale of Category III. Over in the cruel camp, Wong Jing produces Emperor’s palace intrigue, nastiness and dopiness in Sex And The Emperor. Also, a positive comedy about overcoming the odds and becoming the picture-perfect image for prosperity but only in Hong Kong would you centre this around pimps and prostitution. All of which takes place in Way To Success. With Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal.
