Picking up from last weeks East Screen only show, this week is all West Screen. First up is the return of the Govenator to the big with THE LAST STAND. Then we saddle up for the latest from director Quentin Tarantino with DJANGO UNCHAINED.
We also discuss news about Chinese Opera heading to the big screen, and the cuts to CLOUD ATLAS in China.
It’s the calm before the holiday storm that is Chinese New Year, so with only one East Screen film Kevin and I hack apart the remake of the comic turned film series YOUNG AND DANGEROUS: RELOADED [古惑仔：江湖新秩序].
We also discuss some Andy Lau news, the passing of Japanese director Oshima Nagisa, and the collapse of global chain HMV.
It’s an all East Screen show this week as we cover our last film from 2012 THE GUILLOTINES [血滴子]. Then at long last we turn our attention to yet another story of Ip Man with Wong Kar Wai’s THE GRANDMASTER [一代宗師].
We also discuss the results of The Best 200 Hong Kong Films Ever poll and a few thoughts on some of the recent Oscar nominations.
