In an effort to try and be more relevant, [But never timely. – Ed.] we’ve opted to reformat the podcast. In the past, we’ve rambled on about the movies we’re looking at for over an hour and in the day of dwindling attention spans, well, we though we probably ought to shorten it up. So instead of talking about the movie in an almost commentary style, we’re boiling each film down to five points. These might be things that we enjoyed, things we hated or whatever…but they’re things that stood out to us while viewing and as such, are worth talking about. We’re trying to work our way down to about 30 minutes per episode…but drunk people ramble…and…we were drunk.
This episode, we take a look at Shaw Brothers Studio’s 1975 film, Super Inframan…an attempt to combine the standard 70s Hong Kong chop-socky flick that Shaw Brothers are so well known for with the then very popular tokusatsu genre from Japan…notable examples being Ultraman and Kamen Rider. So…what happens when east meets…further east? Let’s find out!
