Enter the Ninja 0

Enter the Ninja – 1981 – Franco Nero is badass!

I was still in my youth when I first saw this film. I thought it was horrible! I really liked one ninja flick and that was Ninja III: The Domination. The need to compare all other ninja flicks to that one was imminent. It wasn’t until later that I understood that not all ninja flicks deal with supernatural powers. In fact, very few of them does. Enter the Ninja is really one of those movies that...

Death Race 2050 0

Death Race 2050 – 2017 – Cult Classic Remake

There are remakes and there are remakes. Some of them tell the story in a slightly different way and som of the copy the original frame by frame. Death Race 2050 falls under the first category but a little bit under the second one too. It’s a very entertaining movie that follows the main story of the original – Death Race 2000. Of course the original had both Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine in the...

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...

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....

The NInja Squad 0

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...

Golden Ninja Warrior – 1986 – Meet the red ninja

There are several issues with this flick. First of all there is a battle going on between the golden ninja clan (or something like that) and the red ninjas. The problem is that I only remember the red ninja. Second it’s far to comedic. A comedy ninja flick is kind of a contradiction in my mind. Of course we have flicks like Beverly Hills Ninja with Chris Farley. But that’s a comedy first and a...

Sonic the Hedgehog – 2020 – based on SEGA classic!

Let me tell you a story about me and my history with SEGA games. When I was in the military back in the early 90’s we used to play those games during our breaks. I guess I was the fondest of it because it was always me who rented it. This was long ago and you could actually rent both the play unit and the games. Anyway, once there were no units available for rent...

Ghost Warrior 0

Ghost Warrior – 1984 – A frozen Samurai

I must admit that I never heard about this movie before. It was more or less a bonus when I ordered som other stuff. It seemed nice and I figured, what the heck?! So I got Ghost Warrior and started watching it. The beginning is set in feudal Japan and I was hoping for it to stay there. It didn’t though and I guess that’s the whole point of the movie. In a fight this...
