Join us on our magical boxing day drunken journey.Prologue 2: An evening with Joshua Aufrance
November 26, 2010 08:23 AM PST
An industry professional all the way from L.A. by the name of Josh Aufrance joins Paul in Bat Country to tell us a tiny bit about his work, and they both shoot the shit about Sigur Ros' documentary Heima, New York I Love You and the recent John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy. Enjoy!Episode 6 Prologue 1 - The Drunken Menaces
November 08, 2010 06:49 AM PST
As it's been forever since we recorded a podcast, here's a tiny little prelude to the main event. Paul is joined by his housemate and close friend Zane, and they shoot the shit having just had a jolly good drink and finally watched Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Not entirely cohesive nor edited, you'll hear the dog, ice clinking in glasses, and two drunks talking about the film about a comic book that is ultimately about video games and films. Enjoy.The Holy Trilogy.

If we were Christian we'd say the best trilogy on Earth was God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost. But since we're film fans and not of any particular religious persuasion, we mull over the idea of what the best trilogies in movie land are, for us.
We also have some updates about some pretty sweet upcoming films to watch out for...so have a listen to what we've got to offer after our months worth of a hiatus.

After a little bit of a hiatus, the boys are back in town!
We go off on one about two of the summers blockbusters, Inception and Toy Story 3 before realising that we don't agree for once and are likely to throw down some shapes. And sizes. In a variety of colours. Think crayola...if they were retarded.
We also reminisce about childhoods, argue about what dreams usually entail and why hype is bullshit.
Oh and plenty of Joseph Gordon Levitt man love.When A Tranny Is Your Trademark You Know You've Made It

This week we're taking a look at one of Hong Kong's funniest men, Stephen Chow. We're also admiring Edward Norton in Leaves of Grass, swilling around in our mouths Ben Stiller in Greenberg, discussing 3DTV and Cinema, and lastly we're apologising for a mixup with release dates of Inception. Sorry!
Also, we get a little fired up about just how shit Sean William Scott is. The turdmuncher.
Hope you all enjoy this (much longer) episode. Cheers m'dears,

Episode 2 is here!
So sorry for the delay but with the World Cup, various other engagements and other adult-type-things that take up our attentions (think jobs, dinners and shoe polishings) we've been a bit behind schedule, so please, forget using knives and forks or napkins, just dig in!
This time round we chew the fat over a few upcoming local and international films that have caught our eye, and we'll be profiling a legend of Hong Kong action cinema - John Woo - as well discussion of some recently digested morsels of film.
Also I think there's a bit of Matt Damon... Matt DAMON.
We hope you guys enjoy it, and have yourselves a lovely little day!

The Introduction Episode is a lie!
Well, we had some technical problems but i think it's all sorted now!
Here's the first epi - it's really rough, mind, and it's our first attempt at recording (literally) but we decided to stick with it rather than try and polish it up post-production - so bare with us and we both really hope that you enjoy it!
Lots of love,

We are: This Is Bat Country HK. But what does that mean we hear you ask? Well essentially just two blokes, Tim Pritchard and Paul Chan, both passionate film watchers! So much so we'd even try to raid the bins outside Christopher Walken's house, just to see what hair products he uses for that wonderful barnet of course... if only we knew where he lived (the elusive git). Anyways, our little podcast will hopefully shed some light on HK cinema as well as some snippets about the wonderful world of cinema - from German Expressionist classics, Hong Kong 80's Gangster classics and Neo-noir thrillers, a la Sin City - we love it all and love to banter about it! So pop a squat, crank up your volume dial and drink in our aural chocolate as you swill a fine whiskey or a cool glass of water. We don't bite. Unless you're Sarah Jessica Parker, then we'll happily sort you out with nose job #263 courtesy of dr. bat and dr. crowbar here. Hope you enjoy it!
