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
73m 58s – Golden Job review

What’s Korean Cinema? 54 – Memento Mori

The Whispering Corridors-series had wind in its sails commercially but rather than do a year later in the same all-girls school follow-up, the makers decided to create a thread for the series based on similar setting and supernatural elements but not story. So for 1999’s Memento Mori, spooky and heart-breaking stuff is back but also something controversial. With Kenny B and Paul Quinn of Hangul Celluloid.

Running Times: 
00m 00s – Intro/LGBT content and controversy
37m 08s – Box office, awards, notes on the directors
52m 33s – Memento Mori review.

This Week In Sleaze 63: Tightie Whitie Theatre – Sex And The Emperor & Way To Success

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.
