I'm familiar with director Enzo G. Castellari. He directed the amazing 1990: The Bronx Warriors (1982). But I'm not his only fan; there's Quentin Tarantino. He famously bought the rights to Castellari's The Inglorious Bastards (1977) to direct his own film, Inglorious Basterds (2009). There's even a DVD extra about that on the Basterds disc. It's another obscure film I've read about that I can now watch on YouTube, which is the point of this podcast.

Shadow of the Basterds aside, Bastards is a good film. It's a Dirty Dozen knock-off about escaped American military prisioners who, seconds from escaping to Switzerland, help the good guys fight the bad guys. Fred Williamson is in peak form in this movie, despite what co-host Carl thinks of his acting.

To celebrate the Chinese New Year, host Mike Spiegelman and special guest Pam Benjamin watches a film from one of the best Hong Kong directors today, Johnnie To.

A master of all genres, To has released some wild comedies during New Year's like Love on a Diet (2001, fat suit comedy), Fat Choi Spirit (2002, mah jong comedy), and Help!!! (2000, hospital comedy), all of which I've seen at the 4-star Theatre in San Francisco. I decided to go with his breakthrough gangster classic instead, The Mission, just because it's amazing and it's available on YouTube.
