The title "Midnight Thud" sounds vaguely pornographic.
I like B movies and some really good one slip under the radar.

Ninja III: The Domination

At first, changes in her behavior is limited to having strange interactions with an arcade game, doing sexy things with V8 juice, and being attracted to an unusually hairy police officer.

Zin has taken in a chubby kid, Moom, who watches over Zen. Moom finds a ledger listing business men who owe Zin money; he goes to them one at a time to collect in order to pay for Zin's treatment.

damn!! I almost mentioned revenge of ninja. And YES! anything sho kosugi !!!

I like Dudikoff movies. American Ninja got me into his stuff. American Ninja 2 has an awesome theme song. I can enjoy just about any of his films. RIP Steve James. That guy should have/would have been the next big guy for that scene if cancer didn't take him too early. waaaay too early.

What about Decascos films. Drive is enjoyably B level. Maybe A minus material.

Dare I go there but Sidaris? Hard Ticket To Hawaii, Picasso Trigger and my favorite Return to Savage Beach.

Whats your favorite MA film period though? For me I would say the Raid 2, followed by the raid 1. As a silat Kali man I m a bit biased though.

Blood and Bone is fantastic. "They call him bones.....uhhh....Cause ....thats what his momma named him!..."

i love mark descasos..got started with only the strong.
you dont see capoeira too often...

i cant nail down a favorite because it changes...i have a soft spot for mma movies...

there is a fairly new one called 'warrior' with tom hardy that is one of the best..

in the 80's i was all about ninja's for sure...

for me all time periods are great..

i love the ip man series with donny yen.....they were fantastic.

anything dealing with wong fei hung...there are lots. jackie chan and jet li have done several.

for now, i think my current favorite martial arts movie is true legend....that movie hits hard man.
its got a master of the 5 deadly venoms...its got the wushu master turned drunkard so, the drunken boxer.

he hallucinates training on a mountain with an old sage and the god of wushu....

if you have not seen it i think it is important enough that you should watch it today....trust me

www.imdb.com...

really only wong fei hung....of course ip man too but thats about it.

i get more into the actors backgrounds themselves....

jackie chan, yuen woo ping, and sammo hung for example.
those guys had it rough man...growing up in the chinese opera school....it was no joke for them.

i became fascinated with wong fei hung a long time ago.

just a martial arts junkie...even the old school hoaky ass ones like shaolin vs wu tang...theyre fantastic

NINJA ACADEMY.

I dare you to sit through more than 30 minutes of it. IT's that terrible. it's literally unwatchable. The sound track alone could be used in guantanamo.

also played Foo in Return to Savage Beach. He mostly does the cliche angry japanese guy who responds to every question with a frustrated growl of some sort.

Seriously it's a painful film (ninja academy)

Ever seen Dacascos american samurai or crying freeman?
