As a man there aren’t too many things in the movie world that excite me more than boobs and gore!  So when a movie comes around that has both, and in mass quanTITIES, I have to go see it.  Enemy and I checked out Piranha in 3D last weekend and were pleasantly surprised at how much we both enjoyed it.  I didn’t want to do a whole review, but it is worth seeing from an entertainment standpoint.  There was plenty of nudity (OMG Kelly Brook looked fantastic), and the gore level was way above what we expected based on the trailer and the tameness of recent Hollywood horror films.  Some of the deaths were just plain gruesome!  The cast includes a very hot looking Elizabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, Adam Scott, Jerry O’Connell and Christopher Lloyd.

American Ninja 2: The Confrontation

Sam Firstenberg is no stranger to B-movie fans.  One of his first directorial efforts was a personal favorite of mine, “Revenge of the Ninja“.  Thankfully, he continued that ninja streak and only took a short break from that genre to film one of the masterpieces of American cinema with “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo“.  “American Ninja” was next on his plate, and he took an up and coming actor in Michael Dudikoff and made him a B-movie star.  Today I take a look at the sequel – American Ninja 2: The Confrontation!
