Excellent Source for Far East Cinema
Excellent network that covers all aspects of Asian cult cinema, with a strong emphasis on the wonder years of Hong Kong and Taiwan. As a longtime HK film fan it's exciting to follow Kenneth and company discuss the films at hand and their excellent wealth of knowledge, but it's also very informative and easy to understand for those just starting to get into the movies. There's always so much information to learn, new films to seek out, and often quite humorous without going overboard. I'm not even big on podcasts, but I made an account just to listen to these guys and their passion for some of the best--and underrated--films ever made!
This is the podcast youve been looking for
These guys know what they're talking about. High levels of knowledge when it comes to all genres in HK films
Well researched and extremely enjoyable
Kenny B and his guests do an excellent job highlighting all kinds of Asian movies. I’ve learned a lot from them over the years — they’ve helped me discover a lot of gems that haven’t gotten the attention they deserve. Even if you have no interest in some of the movies they cover (like Category III or cut-and-paste ninja-sploitation), you might still enjoy these guys talk about them, as I certainly do. Ken and friends are entertaining as hell, and they know what they’re talking about. They’ve done their homework and their podcast is definitely a labor of love.
