About Jon Jung

Jon Jung (aka “Coffin Jon”) is the producer and host of the VCinema podcast and editor-in-chief of the VCinema blog. He is an avid movie fan who specializes in Japanese cinema, but enjoys everything from artsy high-brow to mega-billion blockbusters to straight-to-video turds. As an Asian-American, he got the best of all cinematic worlds as a child by receiving mega-doses of Ozu, Bruce Lee, Kamen Rider, and American drive-in movies in addition to a steady diet of punk rock, Japanese literature, and Buddhism. He spent six years in Japan as an English teacher and translator. In 2004, he returned to the United States to complete his Masters in Language Education and continue his career as a language educator and cultural anthropologist with a focus on language policy and language shift. Jon is a former Myrle Clark Award recipient for excellence in creative writing and has contributed to World Film Locations: Tokyo (Intellect, 2011).

Episode 33: Enthiran

BOOM BOOM ROBO DA ROBO DA.

In this episode, probably our last of the summer, we look at the 2010 Kollywood film Enthiran starring the Tamilnator himself, Superstar Rajini.  Enthiran is one of the highest budget/highest grossing Indian films of all time, so we see if it’s worthy of your three hours or whether it should be left on the scrap heap.  Also in this episode, we talk about buffed superheroes, and even more buffed super heroines, a low budget filmmaking legend, and more!
