Second Class Cinema Episode 57: Revenge of the Ninja (1983)

RevengeofTheNinjaEpImage

 It was Erik's turn to pick the flick this week- naturally we ended up watching a ninja movie... We were in for a surprise, however, because 1983's Revenge of the Ninja ended up being the best ninja flick we've seen to date. After losing multiple family members to ninja violence (LOL), Cho swears off the ninja way, and he, his mother and his infant son, Kane, move from Japan to their new home in America. All is quiet for 6 years as Cho opens a successful art gallery and raises his son away from the violence of their homeland. That is until Cho discovers his business partner has been using their gallery as a front to sell heroin to the local mafia, who are not very happy with him... The thugs break into the gallery to steal the heroin, and kill Cho's mother in the process. Cho must once again embrace the way of the ninja, and sets off on a vengeful path to save his son. This movie is equal parts unintentional hilarity, and straight-up badassery. Listen up as we discuss the inventive kills, shoddy acting, and general awesomeness of this movie. We also briefly cover a First-Class Failure starring Billy Ray Cyrus, that we could barely tolerate 20 minutes of. Good times. Have you seen it? Is it worth finishing? Let us know!

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.

Film Threat Presents launches at Comic Con with The Theta Girl

33 years after its premiere as the rogue, iconoclastic fanzine championing indie film, Film Threat is back.

THE THETA GIRL, a feature film produced by first-time filmmakers David Axe and Christopher Bickel, has been currently ravaging the film festival circuit and building a dedicated fanbase.

He went on, "This is the first film that we are releasing under our new 'Film Threat Presents' label. I think you can tell from this teaser, it's the type of film you wo…
