Japan On Fire 9: Voices On Kaiju – John Kreng

Fight choreographer and author John Kreng drops by in the conclusion to our Kaiju-themed Japan On Fire. A laid back chat between him and Ken covers a bit of the technical side to the action in the monster movies, John’s love for 70s grindhouse, B-movies, what makes martial acting and why not discuss a bit of RoboCop while we’re also at it.

Also featuring almost  15 minutes of deleted conversations in the Members Only Area , available via a FREE, simple registration on the forum. KEN’S EDIT:Excuse my misidentification of who does the stunt in No Regret, No Return. It’s apparently Sam Wong (who fought Jackie at the beginning of Police Story III).

Japan On Fire 8: Voices On Kaiju – August Ragone

Author of  “Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters: Defending the Earth with Ultraman and Godzilla” shares with Ken the very first childhood Kaiju-exposure, how it’s corrupted him since, comparison of the Godzilla eras and basically verbally writing a love letter to the Gamera-series.

Japan On Fire 7: Voices On Kaiju – Ronald L. Strong

Filmmaker/filmhistorian/trivia machine Ronald L. Strong goes over his fanatic history digging Kaiju. It’s a delightful journey as well as an aggrivating one thanks to a fair few characters taking hold of the Godzilla franchise in the 80s and onwards. Gamera still rocked though!

Don’t miss the Deleted Conversations package running almost 40 minutes available in the FREE Members Only area here

Household Kaiju Competition Winner

Few months back we asked our community to come up with thier ideal Kaiju made up of Household items! We got great feedback and responses via Facebook, our forums and even our Twitter account. The winner though is; The Kettle Monster by forum member SlipStreamer. His Entry;

The Kettle Monster! (Alternative names: Ken The Kettle, Kettley Joe, The Magnificent Kettle.)

All good monsters need a backstory:

While experimenting on an unidentified element in his kitchen, Professor Q decided to make himself a cup of tea. But instead of pouring the boiling water into an empty cup, he poured it into the cup containing a sample of the element! Q was severely disfigured in the resulting explosion, and could only live long enough to see a giant shadowy figure rising from the dust before him.

The mutant kettle’s handle has morphed into a tail, with which it throws boiling cups of tea at people, it’s nose shoots steam into the air, and it has legs for some reason. While few people survive an encounter with it, there are those who say it is in fact a lizard, and has (lime)scales for skin. We may never know the truth, but this beast certainly deserves its title of KING OF WHITE GOODS.

The T-Shirt is on it’s way to you buddy! Enjoy!
