Ninja Dragon 0

Ninja Dragon – 1986 – Not so much Ninja..

Ninja Dragon seems to be the left overs from some other ninja flick done in the same era. Richard Harrisson looks exactly the way he did in Ninja Terminator and there’s not much plot in this one. Actually there’s not much “ninja” either. There is a few scenes where they fight each other but for the most part this is more like a regular crime thriller. It’s dubbed of course but I don’t care about...

Michael Nyqvist dies

Last night I got the news about Michael Nyqvists passing away. I was shocked! I didn’t have a clue that he was sick or anything. When I read the papers today I learned that he kept his struggle with lung cancer a secret. Only a few of his closest friends and family knew that he had fought the decease for about a year. To be honest I wasn’t a big fan. Not to say that...

Ultraman – 1966-67 – Kaiju series

I have acquainted myself with this series for a couple of days. There are 39 episodes in total and I have seen a few so far. I really don’t know what to say about it and this won’t be a regular review of the series. It’s a Japanese giant monster genre calles kaiju. This means something like “strange beast”. That is perfectly described! There is indeed strange beasts in this series! Strange beasts that the...

Ninja Terminator – 1985 – A more serious approach

I have watched a lot of Ninja films lately. They’re often great fun even if they’re badly choreographed and dubbed even worse. That reflects on the grades of course and I haven’t been kind in my judgement. I’m actually very cheap when it comes to grades so that figures. Ninja Terminator is another Ninja flick that I saw the other day. It’s much more serious than a lot of the others but not without humor....

Divergent – 2014 – A Dystopian Tale

In a future society the world doesn’t work quite the same way as we know it. There are five fractions of people and you must belong to one of them. Everyone does indeed belong to them too. Well, almost everyone. Once in a blue moon someone get past the tests without being selected to one of the groups – officially that is. These people are known as divergents and they don’t fit anywhere or… everywhere....

Daxx & Roxane – Ticket to Rock – 2017

I don’t much about this band Daxx & Roxane. Of course if I used google I figure I would find som hits on them. I can even find me on google so I guess anything is possible. What I figure out is that they’re from Switzerland and that they were formed in 2009. But I don’t really care when they were formed. What matters is the music and how it’s delivered. As far as I’m...

The Ninja Squad – 1986 Ninjas to the death!

It didn’t come as a surprise that The Ninja Squad was on hell of a cheap movie! To be honest, all movies from Hollywood DVD is cheep films. There are very entertaining though. If you like trash cinema you should stick to this company. I’m a bit confused. Not by the movie but about my own preferences. I like trash movies and I adore turkeys but at the same time I seldom rate them very...

Slaughter in San Francisco – 1974 – Chuck Norris (sorf of)

All movie actors has done films early in their career. That is natural of course but it’s fun to track down these early roles and see those first parts. Chuck Norris was never a great actor but like many others he managed to create a name for himself in the movies business anyway. If this is because of the roles he has portrayed or his martial arts skills can be debated. There is something about...

Evil Dead Trap 0

Evil Dead Trap – 1988 – Not so extreme japanese extreme

I saw this many years ago. But then I forgot about it and what remained in my memory was an extremely violent flick. Sometimes your memory play tricks upon you though and when I see Evil Dead Trap again I’m not that shocked. There are a few scenes that are frightening and there is a few sex scenes with topless women. Most of the sex is consensual but there are forces scenes as well aka...

The Bloodstained Butterfly – 1971 – an atypical giallo

I haven’t watched any gialli lately. In fact, it was quite some years ago since I last was interested in these italian thrillers. But since I was giving Arrow Video a new chance (it’s a long story) I ordered The Bloodstained Butterfly without knowing the first thing about it. Except that the title was great and that it was some kind of giallo. It wasn’t what I expected though. The Bloodstained Butterfly is a little...
