I talk with Joel about The Battle Wizard, a 1977 Shaws Brothers film starring Danny Lee and Tanny Tien.
If you want hear another interesting conversation about this film, we suggest you check out the Jianghu Hustle podcast Episode 20: Gonzo Melodrama; The Battle Wizard.
Joel and I agree: Journey of the Doomed is a terrible film. This mid-80s Shaw Brother release, blends some wuxia with sword and sorcery aesthetics (but without any actual sorcery). It could have been a great movie with a powerful ending, but ultimately fails on too many fronts.
I talk with Joel about the Ho Meng-Hua film Lady Hermit, starring Cheng Pei-pei. We compare it with Golden Swallow and discuss how to make a campaign out of the material.
I talk with Joel about the sequel to Come Drink with Me: Golden Swallow. Directed by Chang Cheh and starring Cheng Pei-pei, Jimmy Wang Yu and Lo Lieh, this movie is great in its own right but sees Golden Swallow playing second fiddle to Jimmy Wang Fu's Silver Roc. We discuss and debate how well it serves as a sequel to King Hu's Come Drink with Me and talk about how to bring it into your campaign.
I talk with Joel and Adam about A Chinese Ghost Story.
