Podcast On Fire 192: Gambling Season – God of Gamblers & God Of Gamblers’ Return

pof192

Welcome to this retrospective of part of the God Of Gamblers series, its sequels and spin off’s. Hugely popular real life occupation for Hong Kong people and transferred to the screen as well, by the man who arugably did it the best while also adhering to comedy and action tradition of the golden period of Hong Kong cinema of the 80s and 90s. His name is Wong Jing and struck box office gold in 1989 with God Of Gamblers starring superstar Chow Yun-fat in his iconic role of Do San, the God of Gamblers, Andy Lau and Joey Wong. A few Stephen Chow vehicles in the same vein were made around this time and subsequently but in 1994 the team of Chow and Wong Jing got together for God Of Gamblers’ Return and those are the two movies we picked for episode one out of three in this series dubbed Gambling Season. With Kenny B and special guest and hos of the East Screen West Screen podcast, Paul Fox.

Podcast On Fire 189: The Last Blood & Pantyhose Hero

pof189

Alan Tam double bill, people! Normally an actor I detest and for part of this episode I will continue doing that but no doubt, Tam-ster, Tam-boy, Tammi was part of a thriving Hong Kong cinema and put in various vehicles requring a lot out of him. Among other things action and for part of this evening, that admiration will be put forth. We first look at Wong Jing’s gun-fu, gunplay, Singapore set The Last Blood from 1991 and in the second half we discuss Sammo Hung’s politically incorrect action-comedy Pantyhose Hero. With Kenny B and Phil G.

This Week In Sleaze 19: Sex And Zen 2 & 3

sex23

Covering Michael Mak’s classic Sex And Zen on episode 3, fast forward to 1996 and 1998 respectively where Category III wasn’t as hot of an item anymore and Wong Jing decided to bring back the series. Echoing little to none of the original, written source material ‘The Carnal Prayer Mat’ but focusing on new stories, new craziness and faces willing to to take their clothes off, Cash Chin’s Sex And Zen 2 and Aman Chang’s Sex And Zen 3 are up for discussion in this episode with Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal.

This Week In Sleaze 15: Raped By An Angel 4: The Rapist’s Union & Raped By An Angel 5: The Final Judgement

The Category IIb fucking comes to a close as Sleazy K and The Great Lord Joshua Regal stay true to their thoroughness to the only partly Category III rated Wong Jing-series. His entry Raped By An Angel 4: The Rapist’s Union is up for examination as well as Billy Tang’s conclusion Raped By Angel 5: The Final Judgement. An actual rapist’s union, a human milk drinking doctor and inappropriate Sailor Moon worshipping coming to your ears…
