Blu-ray Reviews: Cyborg & Ninja III: The Domination

There will never be another studio like the Cannon Group, the company co-owned by Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, who famously churned out dozens upon dozens of low-budget genre films in the 1980s. Though known for producing mostly schlock, the Cannon run of the ‘80s is one of my favorite periods for movies, probably because they made exactly the kinds of movies I grew up loving and still do to this day.

A shameless combination of Flashdance, The Exorcist, and a ninja movie, Ninja III: The Domination is the third installment of Cannon’s “ninja” trilogy, none of which have anything to do with one another except that Sho Kosugi appears in all of them, each time playing a totally different character. It begins as all ninja movies do: on a golf course. We’re then introduced to Lucinda Dickey (Breakin’), who stars as a woman who works on telephone

‘Ninja III: The Domination’ Collector’s Edition Review (Scream Factory)

Stars: Lucinda Dickey, Sho Kosugi, Jordan Bennett, David Chung, Dale Ishimoto, James Hong | Written by James R. Silke | Directed by Sam Firstenberg

After the body of a sexy bouffant-haired telephone maintenance engineer – who is also an aerobics instructor on the side – is possessed by the spirit of an evil ninja, she begins systematically killing (using her new-found ninja skills of course) the officers responsible for the ninja’s death and can only be stopped by another ninja!

One of the campest, yet coolest, of the 80s ninja movies, Ninja III mixes the becoming played-out at the time Ninja genre with something akin to The Exorcist in a film that epitomises all that is great about 80s B-movie cinema and all that was great about Golan-Globus and Cannon Films, whose demise, in my opinion, has left a huge blot of the movie landscape. Like many movies of the 80s, Ninja III

10 of the weirdest Kung Fu movies ever

Craig Lines Nov 1, 2017

Every now and then, martial arts movies go, er, a 'little leftfield', Here are some examples...

There are few feelings I enjoy as much as watching a movie that shakes me out of my complacency, wakes me up from my jaded quasi-slumber and makes me go “I’ve not seen that before!” I watch way too many films and it can take a lot to genuinely shock or surprise me, but there are few genres that manage it as often as martial arts.

Now, I appreciate there’s a lot of base level ‘weirdness’ to the genre if you’re not used to it. There’s curious dubbing, an emphasis on physicality over plotting, some eastern cultural touchpoints that baffle unfamiliar western audiences… but fans get used to all that. I’m talking about something slightly different.

To clarify, it might seem strange to new viewers when

Ninja 3: The Domination

Prime Golan-Globus product from 1984 boasting the quintessential Cannon Films plotline: a curvy aerobics teacher (played by Lucinda Dickey, star of Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo) is possessed by the spirit of an evil ninja and the only way she can can rid herself of this meddlesome ghost is to engage in foot to nose combat with another ninja. The film made close to 8 million dollars at the box office confirming once again the method to the Golan-Globus madness.

Electric Boogaloo, the wild untold story of Cannon Films

Director and documentarian Mark Hartley scores both a film history and comedy success with this ‘wild, untold’ account of the 1980s film studio that was both revered and despised by everyone who had contact with it. The ‘cast list’ of interviewees is encyclopedic, everybody has a strong opinion, and some of them don’t need four-letter words to describe their experience!

‘The Ninja Trilogy’ Blu-ray Review

Enter the Ninja

The film that heralded the start of the ninja craze in the West, Enter the Ninja was one of many martial arts action films made by the uber-prolific producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus after they purchased Cannon Films in the late 70s.

Directed by Golan, Enter the Ninja tells the story of Cole (Franco Nero), a Westerner who is trained in the art of ninjitsu in Japan. Finishing his training he heads the Philippines to visit his war buddy Frank Landers (Alex Courtney) and his newlywed wife Mary Ann (Susan George), who are the owners of farm which is under attack from unscrupulous businessman Charles Venarius (Christopher George) because – unbeknownst to the Landers – there’s a huge oil deposit under their land! Of course having Franco Nero’s ninja on their side means that the Landers can easily see off Venarius’ henchmen. That is until he

Blu-ray Review – The Ninja Trilogy (Enter The Ninja, Revenge of the Ninja, Ninja III: The Domination)

Enter The Ninja / Revenge of the Ninja / Ninja III: The Domination, 1981/1983/1985.

Directed by Menahem Golan and Sam Firstenberg.

Starring Sho Kosugi, Franco Nero, Lucinda Dickey, Susan George, Christopher George, Arthur Roberts, Jordan Bennett and James Hong.

Synopsis:

The three Ninja films produced by 1980’s low-budget kings Cannon Films that like many of the studio’s films have become cult hits since their initial release.

“Before Menahem, I didn’t and I bet that millions of people didn’t know the word ‘Ninja'” said Boaz Davidson in Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, 2015’s superb documentary on the crazy life and times of The Cannon Group, led by Israeli cousins Menahem Golan and Yorum Globus. The duo has bought Cannon Films in 1979 and went on to make their mark on American cinema and pop – culture through the 1980’s before going bust in 1994. They introduced us to any wild films,

Electric Boogaloo – Doc About Cannon Films Screening at The Tivoli September 17th

Bronson!….Norris!…..Dudikoff!

Electric Boogaloo was the name of the wacky 1985 sequel to the break dance epic Breakin’ – which I don’t know was worthy of a follow-up but if there was one studio up to the effort in the mid-‘80s, it was Cannon Films. Electric Boogaloo: The Wild Untold Story Of Cannon Films is the title of a new documentary that plays for one night only in St. Louis at Landmark’s The Tivoli Theater Thursday, September 17th at 7pm.

Israeli cousins Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, prolific salesmen with little regard for quality, bought Cannon Films for half million dollars in 1979 (it was founded in ’67) and turned it into an efficient assembly line of high-concept, action, and exploitation. Lovers of low-brow cinema could always count on a good time when that Cannon Films logo appeared on-screen. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Pt 2, the Sly Stallone arm wrestling opus Over The Top,

Cheerleader Camp (1989) review

Cheerleader Camp (1989)

Directed By: John Quinn

Written By: David Lee Fein, R.L. O’Keiff

Starring: Betsy Russell (Alison), Leif Garrett (Brent), Lucinda Dickey (Cory), Lorrie Griffin (Bonnie), George Buck Flower (Pop), Travis McKenna (Timmy), Teri Weigel (Pamela), Rebecca Ferratti (Theresa Salazar), Vickie Benson (Ms. Tipton), Jeff Prettyman (Sheriff Poucher), Krista Pflanzer (Suzy)

Cheerleader Camp”, which has the alternate title “Bloody Pompoms”, is much better than some of the later slasher fare I have seen. The slasher boom was in the early 1980s but by the time the late 80s came around it seems the ideas were thin.

Cheerleader Camp” feels like a strange version of “Friday the 13th” in many aspects. While I do like the movie as a whole, it does have its issues. It could also be that I have a soft spot for slasher films as they were the first
