postimage

Remember the summer of 1990 when two action-drama and romance classics came out and that you were left devastated after each one? If you did (and even if you didn’t), here’s your chance to relive some of that through Kenny B’s and Tom K-W’s discussion on Benny Chan’s A Moment Of Romance and John Woo’s Bullet In The Head. Dr. Lam is also at hand, providing two separately recorded reviews and check out his show specific doodles in the show links! Pardon the audio quality of these two segments.

Plot (Optimum Asia): Chow (Hard Boiled, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) plays a legendary killer who slaughters his entire gang after the death of his wife. As penance, he opens the Peace Hotel, a sanctuary for criminals, seedy characters and anyone seeking safety.

After several peaceful years, an arrogant female thief (Cecilia Yip) telling outlandish lies barges into the hotel – with an angry posse hot on her heels. The posse accuses the woman of murdering their chief and vows to attack the hotel unless the woman gives herself up.
