In 1996 I launched a website titled The Ultimate Filmography of Jackie Chan, which was one of the first websites to dig deep into the films of Jackie Chan, including his more obscure ones.
A year later, The Ultimate Filmography of Jackie Chan was re-titled Jackie Chan: Fist of the East Star. It was around this time that I started accepting reviews from anyone who was willing to share their thoughts. The importance of multiple opinions – as well as writing styles – was a logical way of really knowing what to expect out of a film, so it made perfect sense to have more than one view.
In 1999, I finally settled with cityonfire.com, and transformed a Jackie Chan-only site to a database of reviews, covering all of Asian Cinema (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, etc).
Today, cityonfire.com is still going strong. In addition to regularly updated Asian Cinema reviews, we now cover the latest movie news (Asian, mainstream, cult and pretty much anything we think is relevant to our visitors). We also update our “New and Coming Soon Blu-ray/DVD Release” section, which is designed to keep you informed with the latest Asian, Martial Arts and other notable titles on Blu-ray and DVD.
Keep in mind that cityonfire.com is updated constantly, sometimes several (or more) times a day.
On behalf of all the writers (new and old) and contributors that help keep this site going, I hope that cityonfire.com will be one of your prime resources on the net. Thank you for visiting.
