Kick'em In The Ghoulies

"It's The Only Way To Survive"

 

What's Happening on Kick'em in the Ghoulies

 

A crazy 2020 for all

With the year entering it's second half the world is still fighting the COVID19 virus.  With the threat of a second wave as we enter the colder period we should all take extra care . 

Remember wear those masks in public areas and keep your distance. 

Our progress on site was stalled as i myself fought the virus for over three months.


Now for myself and many others ,staying safe is key..

I have started training slowly again ,but only doing half hour sessions at present and avoiding certain exercises for a bit .

But what this does mean is I am able to do more on site and have been compiling some great features and reviews to come. 

More of the older pages are getting updated now and these will go live on a weekly basis now. 

Hope you enjoy the new look site and our latest features as we move forward it will grow.

Stay Safe , Train Hard , and above all Stay Calm.

Sertes Nake aka The Snake.


 

Where Going All Japanese with our TOEI feature

Japanese films have always been a tough one for us viewers in the UK . Unlike their Chinese and Korean counterparts finding English subtitled Japanese films is a secret mission and often at a hefty price. 



Anyway as we  have now amassed a decent number of films from the TOEI catalogue and all with English Subtitles and / or English Dubs it's time we  get all Japanese in our new feature coming soon where we look at a collection of films from Shinichi 'Sonny ' Chiba and Etsuko'Sue' Shihomi and a couple of others we have acquired , Watch this space!

 

Jackie Chan's VANGUARD hits Cinema's 

After Months of waiting  , Jackie Chan's New Year film  VANGUARD finally hits Chinese cinema's on September 30th 2020.

How long it is before we see it West side , we don't know , but I'm sure I'll end up getting it on DVD or Bluray.

It's a film that Jackie nearly had another near death experience on as he once again has gone all out to film the action scenes. 

Here at Kickemintheghoulies  we can't wait. 
 

We get into some Classic Jackie Chan 

No Martial art featured site is complete without Jackie Chan . 

That's why we are currently rebuilding our Jackie Chan feature page .

To celebrate this we will be covering a selection of Jackie Chan films on Bluray 

Our first film will be the 1978 Classic Snake and Crane Arts of Shaolin which just happens to be one of my favourite old school Jackie Films. 

Later on we will be looking at the latest re-release of Operation Condor on Bluray from 88Films.


Other films we will cover in the section will be 
'Police Story Lockdown'
'Railroad Tigers'
'The Foriegner'
'Kung Fu Yoga '



Our Next TV Drama Review Goes LIVE

Our next TV drama review goes live, this time we take a look at the first season of Hot Girl , a drama about a young girl who joins a Chinese Security company.
It's definitely of the wall

One thing we have added to recent reviews and the Shaw Brothers Feature page are Profiles of some of the Directors and Stars of these great films. 

 

Scott Adkins as busy as ever

Scott Adkins seems to be knocking out the films at such a rate that it's getting hard to keep up.
Coming shortly our look at the films and the man behind the constant flurry of action hitting our screens from his early parts in Jackie Chan's Medallion right up to his latest releases on DVD like Avengement and Abduction.

With even more films yet to be released on Bluray /DVD or even the cinema  such as Ip Man 4 .

Does this man ever stop ?
Here at K.I.T.G. we think it might take a Tsunami to stop this guy appearing in the next film , but more then likely Scott would just brush it off as a light shower.
FEATURE COMING SHORTLY

 Legend Soke Hirokazu Kanazawa passes 

Other sad news in the martial arts world is the passing of Shotokan legend Soke Hirokazu Kanazawa who passed away on December 8th 2019, he was 88 years old.

Soke Kanazawa was the founder of the Shotokan Karate-do International Federation , a organisation he founded after leaving the JKA .
Up until his death he was one of the last living practising Karate practitioners who was taught by the founder of Shotokan Karate, Gichin Funakoshi, who himself was one of the founding fathers of modern day Japanese Martial arts. 

We hope do a feature on the great man in the form of a tribute page as a member of this site was actually taught by one of his closest students and was Graded by Soke Kanazawa himself in the 70's .
 

We delve into Chinese Drama 

One Media portal we have not covered to much in the past are Chinese drama's . With the event of streaming sites like Amazon Prime / Netflix / Hulu and others it is now possible to stream many of these shows with Subtitles in English now.


Something in the past which where impossible to find subtitled.


And over the past year or more we have viewed various series with a passion , with such titles as the Martial arts Romantic drama Taekwondo Girl to more classic costume drama's like Novoland Eagle Flag and The Longest Day in Changan.


What makes these drama's so different to Western drama's are that more then often they are end to end ,so that your get the whole story in one season of say 40 - 60 episodes . 


None of this ten episodes then wait a year to see the next ten. Their often in your face and once you start you just can not stop till the end.
