The High Five Podcast Episode 50 – Jackie Chan Through The Decades

Welcome to the landmark 50th episode of The High Five Podcast! With this one, I decided to celebrate one of the all-time greatest action-comedy filmmakers to ever do it: Jackie Chan! What started as a celebration of Jackie Chanuary with some friends turned into me watching a whole of the master’s movies with no intent on slowing down anytime soon! I tried choosing one of his films from each decade starting with the 70s and making my way all the way up to the 20s, but of course I added in a few extras along the way.

You can read my initial reviews of latter day Chan films like Chinese Zodiac and The Foreigner if you feel so inclined. I also reviewed the wonderful Bleeding Steel on Episode 28 of this very show.

You knew there had to be some clips, right?!

Also, for good measure, here’s the Typhoon hovercraft toy commercial I mentioned while talking about Rumble In The Bronx.

The High Five Podcast Episode 43 – Favorite Movie & TV Discoveries Of 2021

It was a weird year for movies and a pretty great one for TV, all things considered. Hit play to find out my favorites of the year!

By the way, I realized I talked about watching movies with my friends and didn’t explain how we do it. There’s a Party option on Amazon Video that we use most of the time, but you can also use Teleparty. For that one, you have to use Chrome, download the extension and everyone has to have an account on whatever service you’re using. Both of these options allow you to type to each other while the film syncs up on everyone’s computers. We thought about finding one where you can talk, but figured it’d get pretty loud.

I mentioned a few previous episodes throughout this one. Here are the links if you’re curious!

The High Five Podcast Episode 28 – Super Movies Not Based On Comics

On this week’s episode, I’m running down a quintet of action movies that feel like comic book movies, but without existing source material. I had a great time putting this list together and a lot of fun watching these movies. I hope you do too!

Of all of these, I’ve written about the Universal Soldier franchise the most including the original, The Return and Day Of Reckoning.
