Episode 140 of the East Screen West Screen podcast. Talking films from Hong Kong to Hollywood and lots of stuff in between.
It’s the Year of the Snake and Kevin and I slither through our thoughts of the three new Chinese films released for the lunar holiday. Up first is the third incarnation of the holiday franchise produced by TVB, I LOVE HONG KONG 2013 [2013我愛HK 恭囍發財]. Next we turn to the Happy Ghost himself (Raymond Wong) as he breaks from his traditional All’s Well, Ends Well franchise to bring us HOTEL DELUXE [百星酒店]. Finally, is the long awaited film from director Stephen Chow as he returns to the literary classic featuring the Monkey King with JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CONQUERING THE DEMONS [西遊．降魔篇].
From all of us at East Screen West Screen, we wish you a happy and prosperous Year of the Snake.
