KFMG Podcast S06 Episode 78: End of Year Show 2021 with Mike Fury – Part One

Ho ho ho and happy holidays to all our listeners around the world. Welcome to the first part of our annual, end-of-year wrap-up podcast featuring the Life of Action author, Mike Fury. And, wow, what a year it has been for martial arts action movies! From manga to Marvel, Netflix to multiplex, low-budget indies to explosive Hong Kong thrillers, this year had it all.

In Part One of our End of Year Show, we discuss the martial arts movie news which grabbed the headlines in 2021, and we pay our respects to the famous people we lost. We share some recorded messages from friends of the show, and – because it’s the festive season – we also unwrap a few Christmas presents. It’s a jolly old time! So settle in, sit back, and enjoy.

In Part Two – landing Christmas Eve, 24 December – we will discuss our personal top five fight films of the year, enjoy a glass or two of advocaat, and read out some of your comments. We also look ahead to the big movies coming our way in 2022.
