East Screen / West Screen #15 – Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go


It’s the first show of December and the weather calls for Rain with chance of scattered ninjas…Kevin and I are here to try and make sense of the re-emergence of the iconic assassin of ’80s.  We also talk about the recent Golden Horse awards, the use of digital video vs. film, and Alec Baldwin’s self-debasement…among other things.

    1. Glad you liked it. Kevin and I are definitely not the funniests host in podcast land, but we do have a few moments where we crack each other up now and then…I wasn’t sure if keeping these moments it would be good for the integrity of the podcast/content etc…but I am glad you enjoyed them in the last episode. Of course, Ninja Assassin was easy to pick at lol 🙂

    1. Yeah, Mulan opened on the 3rd in Hong Kong…a few weeks after its debut in the mainland. Not doing too well there though, despite a HK director and actor in the mix.
