    The East Meets the West Ep. 19 - Sword Stained with Royal Blood (1981) & The Mercenary (1968)

    We're back after a bit of a hiatus! On today's show, Re-Gor and Patsy discuss the Shaw Brothers film Sword Stained with Royal Blood from 1981 and the spaghetti western The Mercenary from 1968.
    In Sword Stained with Royal Blood havoc breaks out when a warrior on the run uncovers a sword, training manual, treasure map and a secret message on the body of a deceased master. The Mercenary concerns Sergei Kowalski (Franco Nero), a mercenary only out for himself and a few dollars, who joins up with a Mexican peasant-turned-revolutionary, Paco Roman (Tony Musante) -- when the price is right. No longer content to toil for the rich and powerful, Roman plans to bring a new order to Mexico by force with his small ragtag group. While Roman and Kowalski are outnumbered facing the Mexican army, they also have to contend with Curly (Jack Palance), a vengeful killer out for blood.

    The East Meets the West Ep. 18 - 10 TIGERS OF KWANGTUNG (1980) & THE 5-MAN ARMY (1969)

    The East Meets the West Ep. 18 - 10 TIGERS OF KWANGTUNG (1980) & THE 5-MAN ARMY (1969)

    After an unplanned hiatus, we're back with more Shaw Brothers and Spaghetti Western goodness!!! On this episode, Patsy the Angry Nerd and I discuss the films 10 Tigers of Kwangtung from 1980, and The 5-Man Army from 1969.
    In 10 Tigers, the Venoms are back in a complicated story that moves between past and present and details the origins of the Chinese legend of the 10 Tigers from Kwangtung! Great cinematography and fighting as always, and we had a hilarious time dissecting this film!
    In the 5-Man Army, Peter Graves stars as a man who puts a team together for an almost impossible mission of robbing gold from a heavily guarded train. Bud Spencer co-stars and it's great seeing these guys team up!!
    So check out these great films and come back for our discussion!

    The East Meets the West Ep. 17 - LEGEND OF THE FOX (1980) & THE BIG GUNDOWN (1966)

    The East Meets the West Ep. 17 - LEGEND OF THE FOX (1980) & THE BIG GUNDOWN (1966)

    We're back!! Sorry for the delay! Patsy and I discuss Legend of the Fox from 1980 and The Big Gundown from 1966. In Legend of the Fox, Chin Siu Ho plays a young man who believes himself to be an orphan. Until one rainy night when he and three different men find themselves taking shelter from the storm in the same place.
    The Big Gundown stars Lee Van Cleef as unofficial lawman John Corbett who is tasked with hunting down Cuchillo Sanchez, a Mexican peasant accused of raping and killing a 12-year-old girl. Who needs an entire posse when you've got Lee Van Cleef??

    Two highly entertaining films that you should definitely check out!! We take a fun dive into these films and hilarity ensues!!

    The East Meets the West Ep. 16 – The Rebel Intruders (1980) & Today We Kill, Tomorrow We Die! (1968)

    The East Meets the West Ep. 16 – The Rebel Intruders (1980) & Today We Kill, Tomorrow We Die! (1968)

    Patsy and I return to our regular format as we delve back into the Venom films and a Bud Spencer film! First up is The Rebel Intruders from 1980. Three refugees become sworn brothers during a war. One (Kuo Chui/Philip Kwok) works in a whore house, one (Chiang Sheng) in a gambling house, and the other (Lo Mang) in a martial arts school. They become embroiled in the war and are betrayed by one's mentor.
    And in Today We Kil, Tomorrow We Die! (1968) Brett Halsey stars as a Django lookalike who goes on the warpath to avenge the death of his wife. Bud Spencer teams up with him, this time without Terence Hill! The film was co-written by Dario Argento, and we discuss his influence that can clearly be seen in this movie!

    The East Meets the West Ep. 15 – Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974) & Requiem for a Gringo (1968)

    Last episode was part 2 of our Primer on Shaw Brothers films and Spaghetti Westerns. Today, we break our usual form again as we will NOT be discussing a Venom film from Shaws or a Terence Hill related Spaghetti Western. This episode, we've got a very special guest returning to the show, podcaster extraordinaire, Derek M Koch! Derek, Patsy and I discuss two wonderful films: just in time for Halloween we present the Shaw Brothers/Hammer Films team-up, Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974) and the Spaghetti Western, Requiem for a Grino (1968). You're in for a great treat!
