Sho Kosugi, You Are Not James Bond.

Break out those exploding shurikens, because Rage of Honor is (definitely not) the Greatest Movie EVER! 

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download  the review.

Review in a Nutshell:  Crippled by terrible camera-work and Sho Kosugi’s broken Engrish, Rage of Honor is not an ideal ninja movie.  Still, we at the Greatest Movie EVER! Podcast are thankful for ninja movies in general.

This movie contains:

FALSE ADVERTISING!

Sho Kosugi, Gentleman Spy.

Camo-Pajama Jesus Ninjas.

Daryl demands that I name this post “Drink Your Vegetables”.

Hold onto your golf balls, because Ninja III: The Domination is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Inexplicably tacking The Exorcist and Flashdance onto a ninja film, Ninja III: The Domination may just be the pinnacle of cinematic ninja shenigans.  It’s a crime that this film is not available on DVD.

This movie conains:

Evil Ninjas.

Plucky Female Protagonists.

Evil Plucky Ninja Female Protagonists.

Chest hair.

V-8.

Ninjas Stole this Episode from Daryl Surat.

Prepare to lurk in public restroom stalls and playgrounds, because Revenge of the Ninja is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  The second film in the unofficial “Ninja Trilogy”, Revenge of the Ninja is a real-deal ninja movie starring real-deal ninja, Sho Kosugi.  Be prepared for skullduggery and lots of dirty tricks in this slice of eighties goodness.

This movie contains:

Scary Ninja Masks.

Ninja Violence.

Ninja Grandma?

Y-M-C-A!

Hurrah!

Paul may be a bit of a John Woo hater, but Last Hurrah for Chivalry is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Combining manly melodrama with innovative action scenes, Last Hurrah for Chivalry is a kung fu classic.  It works equally well when you’re on heavy medication, too.

Sleeping Wizard, or Snoopy?

Aerial Sword-Swinging Silliness.

Manly Emotions!

Big Month of Mark – Double Dragon

The Greatest Movie EVER!

Abobo can’t drive, and Double Dragon is the Greatest Movie EVER!

This movie contains:

Charmed?

Awesome Hair.

Robert Patrick doesn't even care.

AWESOME HAIR.

Kick him in the pit!

Fuzzy Memories.

ERRATA:

I got Michael Berryman’s name wrong. Sorry, Michael!

COMING SOON!

The Month of Mark Dacascos gets preempted for a very special Mother’s Day.

Dream of a Blind Ninja (Not Zatoichi)

The Greatest Movie EVER!

This is perhaps the Greatest Movie Poster EVER made,

and Blind Fury is the Greatest Movie EVER!

This movie contains:

2000 Flushes?

Highly Addictive Toilet Cleaner.

Aw, he's sad.

Crying Freemen?

GRRR.  GRISLY MAN WITH GUN.  GRR.

“Tex” Cobb, a King among Henchmen.

NOM NOM NOM.

Haute Cuisine.

Not in the face!

“This is how blind people say hello…”

COMING SOON!

COMING SOON!

I smell a theme month…

“They Kick High.”

The Worst Movie EVER!

The Big Week of (Philip K.) Dick commences October1,

but in the meantime Dead or Alive is the Worst (Meh-est?) Movie EVER!

NOTE: If the show sounds a little static-filled this time around, it’s because I forgot to recalibrate my mixer after lending it to Daryl Surat during Anime Weekend Atlanta. I’ve fixed the problem; it shouldn’t happen again. (I sent the DVD back to Netflix without capturing any screens or sound effects, so here are some images swiped from Google Imagesearch.)

This film contains:

Purple Hair!

Purple Hair! (Thanks, IGN!)

Oooh, in the rain no less.

Girl Fights!

Mmm...delicious.

CHEESECAKE.

COMING SOON!

Peter Weller in Screamers

The Second Variety? I thought this was RoboCop 2…”
