  1. “Kid building a tree a treehouse!” – His ninja senses would have known the difference!

  2. And to start things of with reviewing movies distributed by Cannon Films, we have a martial arts movie that was NOT directed bu Godfrey Ho. Also, shouldn’t “back to normal for you” mean you should be reviewing a porno? =P

    The only Cannon films I’ve seen are Superman IV and Masters of the Universe, two movies where they only used half the budget to film them, and used the other half on their own garbage. Seriously, Warner Bros. gave Cannon $40 million to make Superman IV, and they did it with $17 million.

    If I want a white ninja, I’ll stick with Storm Shadow from G.I. Joe, thank you very much.

    Ninja license? Really? Last I recalled, Batman didn’t get a ninja license in Batman Begins.

    8:43- You weren’t the only one seeing Crazy Grandpa in that guy.

    At least the Hook character in Pan is better than the on in this movie.

    17:04- I was also thinking the Ninja Turtles, and it would be weird to call them Teenage Mutant ASSASSIN Turtles.

    19:54- That was a really awkward commercial for The Nostalgia Critic to review.

    22:05 to 22:17- I remember seeing this death scene on YouTube years ago, and since your review of Karate Girl, I wanted you to review this movie because of this scene.

    Thanks, Brad, for reviewing something 1,000 times better than Old Fashioned.

  3. I love Cannon films and their classic 80’s stuff but, Enter the Ninja SUUUUCKED!

    The 2nd and 3rd entries in this series were much, MUCH better. Revenge of the Ninja and Ninja III: The Domination. In the 80’s there were two things that were huge with kids: Dinosaurs and Ninjas. And those two movies are pretty much the best Ninja flicks the 80’s ever produced!

    Someone on IMDB message boards once called Revenge of the Ninja, the 2nd in the series, the Gold standard for Ninja cinema. I’d have to agree. That movie was pretty awesome.

  4. FACT:

    If you were a boy under the age of 10 at any time during the 80’s, you pretended to be a Ninja at least once.

  5. Wait, Zachi Noy is in it? A useless actor from the german-israelian sex comedy “Lemon Popsicle”? OMGDFG.

    More ninja movies now oh this should be interesting and here’s hoping kung kwon Todd makes an appearance. Another wonderful episode and I loved the norm of the north reference(lets hope the cinema snob doesn’t have to endorse such pain as that movie but let’s hope one of the movies he does this year is War Room but I want to do a Halloween, a Freddy and a Jason movie and any other movie including exploitation films were people get nude).

  7. Hey Snob!
    If you read these comments (which I sincerely hope you do) I have a recommendation: School for Unclaimed girls from 1969.
    I discovered this movie when looking on youtube for the Gene Kelly film ‘Les Girls’ being a big fan of Gene Kelly. Because when I punched in ‘les girls full movie’, not only would I not find the Gene Kelly movie but I would instead find a whole bunch of…well, you can just guess.
    So, after unsuccessfully scrolling up and down looking for the movie and feeling annoyed with the world, this movie caught my eye as the genre said exploitation and reminded me of all the lovely things you review.
    That’s the impact you have on my life; I can’t scroll past scuzzy things anymore without thinking ‘say, I think I know someone who’d appreciate this’. I never thought I’d ever think that
    Now I don’t usually watch your show (except for the musicals; those are a riot!) but it would fantastic if you could review this movie. Could you review it? Pretty please (eyelashes flutter)

  8. Pretty sure Ninja is a cat name, not a dog name!

  9. I don’t usually watch Cinema Snob stuff but January 20th, 2016 was a slow day for Channel Awesome. 😀

  10. This is one of those instances where I stopped watching the review and just decided to watch the film for myself. It was wonderfully bad. Honestly, I was rooting more for Sho Kusugi than mr. porno stache.

  11. this is actually the very first movie I ever saw in a movie theater
