Twins… Didn’t everyone at one point wish they had a twin? Someone you could switch classes with or someone you could play pranks on unknowing bystanders? Maybe you and your twin could bulk up and look like giants compared to normal people and dress like your colorblind mother set your clothes out for you each morning. If the latter was ever your secret wish, then the 1994 flick “Twin Sitters” starring David and Peter Paul might be right up your alley.
It doesn’t get much simpler than this: A boy can’t be controlled by his father, so he enrolls him a class to learn the ways of a martial art – to teach him discipline. The boy becomes a master of the art, but still hasn’t quite grasped the concept of the discipline part. After beating up some kid in the schoolyard, he gets banished from his home, and years later returns to reconnect with his old master. When the master gets murdered, the boy has finally become a man – and a master himself, and avenges his friend. He has become THE PERFECT WEAPON! 😀 (that title just begs to be capitalized.)
Ninjas are the closest things to comic book super heroes that we have ever seen in the history of the world. They can evaporate into thin air, they can destroy entire villages with their bare hands, and they can walk on water. I’ve learned quite a few things from watching Ninja III: The Domination, and one of those things I’ve learned is that a killer ninja can transfer his soul through his sword to another person. One other thing I’ve learned is when those crazy ninja spirits try to take over your body, you might be able to hold them off for a little by practicing aerobics while putting on crappy 80’s pop music that was hastily written minutes before recording – but that’s only because those crazy ninja spirits are just messing with your head. You can never resist crazy ninja spirits.
It’s the last day of the year 2008, and this marks the first year that we’ve been reviewing films. Well, it hasn’t been a full year – we started this current incarnation of the website on March 8th, 2008 with our first review of Larry Cohen’s “The Stuff” (note to ourselves – review more Larry Cohen films!). Anyhow, since it’s the end of the year, we figured if you really wanted to you could browse around the site and look at all the stuff we’ve covered, but if you’re the lazy type like us, this condensed view of some of our highlights and lowlights might be right up your alley. In this post you’ll find some clips and summary of our highest rated films and lowest. So… without further adieu, let’s get on with the show:
