I'm sorry did I break your concentration somewhere between science and superstition such sigh to show you strange aeons. Welcome strange aeons radio. That's Eric Margaret over there, Hulu. That's Vanessa Williams over there. Hello. That makes me Kelly young and happy Halloween guys. We're recording this on Halloween. Whoa what how much we love you guys what a great day to cover ninjas. I don't want to do anything fun today. Let's do an episode of our show. Basically, yes, we this is the amount of a life we all have. You want to spend like three to four hours? Halloween just on a podcast? Yes. I can think of no two people. I would rather spend my Halloween with you, Eric, I wasn't talking to you. Third person here. I'm to guide fourth first minute, jumping out from the back. Hey, guys. I feel like I need to talk about something we talked about last week because I've had enough people reach out to me and say what's going on with your neighbor? Oh my god. Oh my god. Well, it was just great because of course when we posted one of you lovely gentlemen was like oh, hey, like and we talked about Kelly's neighbor and I had to remind you we weren't actually live. We talked about your neighbor. I knew that but we screamed about it so much. By we I mean the royal way. Yeah. So so here's the deal. And now you know I've had a little bit of sleep I feel much better. My lovely neighbor upstairs. She let's just say she doesn't keep the same hours as I do. And a great time to cook is about 1am cheese. And I am generally sound asleep and then chilled drop a pan or slam a cupboard door or something right above my head and it terrifies me awake. And once you've been shocked awake like that it's very difficult to get back to sleep. So this is her pattern every night around 1230 or one awakened by something dropping or something slamming I don't know if I had to guess it feels like she's standing directly above my head with a round wooden ball oh my god about the size of a softball like a croquet ball. And she just sold a bunch is kind of where his his head is got to be there and then she drops it and it just goes bonk and that's how I am awakened. So fun time you can imagine that I was a little frazzled. What and you wake up really early right? I do i i mean you know, I get up at about 520 I go to bed usually about 1030 So about 1am I am deep into sleep yeah I mean that's that kind of messes up your whole week because you know you're not getting proper REM you're getting terrified awake I don't know how long it takes to go back to sleep but just it sometimes it does ever Can you write like a passive aggressive no thank god why and I hope that shows up on the audio that's hilarious. There's there's a there's a nice caveat that this whole thing for you too because this is the first time you've ever had an upstairs neighbor. I know. Oh, no. Very, very strange for me. It is a weird experience. It's it sucks. I'm glad right now with our two new cats and you might feel this way too and so that I don't have a downstairs neighbors because they're you know, two three pound little demons that run like they're 80 pound tigers. When they're upstairs above us I like yeah, they Yeah, mine run up and down the stairs frighteningly quickly. I do have downstairs first and I do worry. But they mostly just give me strange looks occasionally sound like he didn't say anything to me. So that's fine. Obviously you're definitely not hearing anything happening here. And not at one o'clock in the morning and that's that's the owners problem. I understand people do things during the waking hours. I have no problem with that. And I feel bad because she is an enormous woman. And I feel bad that I that's what I attacked on the show was her wait instead of what was actually going on, but I am only human. Yeah, I mean non sleeping human at that point. It's it's hard. It's hard because it feels like there's a lot of things that kind of add up to certain kinds of behavior and sometimes extreme obesity can be part of a number of problems, including, you know, sometimes that comes with manipulation and sometimes it comes with just, I need to make a snack at one in the morning in the morning. That could be I'm telling you, I know that's like, okay, here, I'm gonna move in. The undead just feel like I'm a ghost. And you've disturbed me and I will come and haunt you. On the third Tuesday of every month, I will visit you in your dreams unless you Please maintain polite hours. Now I'm saying she's probably got her own podcast and she said, they're gone. Jesus Christ. The guy down below me has two people show up every Sunday. For hours and hours. It's so fucking annoying. So another thing I would like to talk about, I'll make this my first choice them. Something we talked about last week. But Eric, I watched dune and the thing that I loved I listened to last week's episode just a couple days ago. And the, the tone of your voice when I said, I didn't like the casting of Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho was such a smug little nerd prick. That when it happened at the time, I kind of have my feelings for Holy shit. He's like, you really don't know anything. But then when I listened to it again, I was like, Oh my God. I am so happy. I'm so happy that Eric was such a prick on the air. And do you want to know why, Eric? It's because you have always been the best of us. You're the nicest person in any room. It's true. Nobody ever has a bad word to say about you. I am so happy that you're on the air for glimmering shimmering moments. It just it just proves that you are human. Oh, it's their hand. And a bit of an asshole. Do you guys hear that? Yes. That is happening. I'm wondering if they're here. I hope this shows up. It's like crazy. Yeah, that just might. I don't know what that is. That's upstairs. That's I've never heard that before. Wow. I mean, it can be like baking you could be like beating something with a rolling pin. Brush. It's just stomping on the floor to tell me to shut up. Thank you. Anyway, I wow movie and I will say this. I I want to be a pretentious asshole like you sometimes. And like movies that are boring as fuck. Oh my god. I just can't I'm too real. And so I gotta say that movie was a fucking snooze fest. Oh, no, it was planned. colorless, boring. There was some gorgeous moments and I love the dragon fly ships. Yeah, super cool. Yes, sir. But I hated every single actor in this which was a problem because I love Oscar Isaac and I thought he was poorly cast even. I think he's an amazing actor. Two thumbs down. Pretentious prick throat. Ouch. Well, I saw June as well. Oh, what do you think of it? I really liked it. That does not surprise me. Yeah, I mean, also, it's by a director that I adore. Me too. Okay, that made me angrier. Yeah, it's science fiction, which I'm fucking obsessed with. It's really textured. It's a big, interesting world. And I also had read the book so for me, I was like, Oh, that part of the book that I found boring as fuck. This is now really interesting, because you know, we get to see the actual dragonfly ships, which before I was trying to imagine my head and I was like, that sounds stupid. And then saw them was like, Oh my God, they're fucking wicked. So who is Timothy shallow? Me? Is this an actor? I should know. What a scrawny white kid? Yeah, the Kyle McLaughlin. Yeah. I know the name sounds oddly familiar, like a bunch of stuff. I know. He did some like big, like royal Netflix movie and start showing up and stuff. But he's he's been breaking some waves. If IMDb was working, I would tell you, I just felt like I mean, it's really indicative of our culture now as like, God, this scrawny, unattractive man is now the lead of this space opera. He should not be a superhero that would not fit the character I wanted him to be. tone. I don't mind that you hate it. But you're not. The thing is you're eating it because you don't know it. It'd be like jeans humanize Oh, feel good about it. So I saw I heard an interview with the director on another podcast that I like to listen to. And what are you cheating on us? They were blogging before before us guys wait, you're cheating on them with us? Yes 100% The Mark Kermode podcast which I will say to you since I lived in the UK, but he he interviewed the director and he actually asked about that casting and what I always miss pronounce his name, but the what the director said is Danny didn't even News didn't even by the way that man has the best fucking voice on planet Earth and a cool name. Fuck anyway, um, he said, you know, this, the, the characters meant to start this entire saga at the age of 15. He's supposed to be like, kind of a weakling boy. And so being able to cast somebody who could act and look very young and potentially be aged up was a big part of casting. I don't McLaughlin was the wrong cast. That's, that's unfortunate, because I really I love my favorite part. He was the best part of the first. Yeah, sure. Yeah. So that was kind of from from my understanding, that was the intention behind that casting. Charlemagne has been in a few things that you know, Lady Bird. Interstellar. It's got like, 13 Or he's got 30 some odd credits. Okay, yeah. Yeah, I don't know. I didn't like him. Because he didn't like anything about the film. But I did like some of the things. I thought there was some cool scenes and some cool effects and stuff like that. I was. I don't know it. Just what did you think of the score? Um, I don't know that. I noticed it. Oh, really? Well, I watched it here on my Oh, I didn't see it in IMAX. Okay, I really impressive it was like, teeth shattering like the scores are so fucking impressive. It was probably 50% of the film was just that enormous sound. And he talked a lot in an interview I saw with the director to talk a lot about that, where he used sound at moments to increase or emphasize, like the counter bar and some other scenes where weird noises were added. Yeah, through the soundtrack that became part of the scene. It reminded me a lot of like, 2001 in the way the audio is, like, kind of projecting certain moments. Not that I mean, if you didn't like it, you didn't like I don't think you're gonna like it more in the IMAX. But I do think that was helpful for them. Yes. I will say this guy. I love Jason Momoa. So much as a person. Yeah. I think he is a really bad actor. And I am happy that he's getting big movies, but I wish they were not movies that I felt compelled to see. Because every movie he just has. No, he was horrible. Awful knows a ship movie. But he's got such a stunning smile that you kind of fall in love with him. He was the only thing I've really liked him in as an actor is Game of Thrones. I thought he was awful in that and I think because he had a different language. Yeah, like he didn't have much to do. I kind of liked him in Conan and I would like to have seen it more common with him in it because I felt like he kind of got the fact that Conan was dumb and happy. You know? Rival and shit like that. So when he smiles and slam somebody with a sword, I was like, this feels kind of like Conan. That's right. I don't know. What about you guys what you see in hate? Yeah, um, well, I could jump in. So we were so fortunate that somebody donated a kind amount to our show. Thank you so much. And then dab do for specifically me right in the art for for the generosity. So I was I was told slash requested slash told to check out the film dead silence because of our discussion on malignant and my my kind of constant thing that I keep running back to, which is it has to be on purpose. Like a lot of these strange like shot sizes and moments and bad acting like it has to be on purpose because this guy's James Wan has made a lot of movies. So I was, you know, tasked with watching dead silence which a modern day class basically tasked you that saying, how could you possibly think this guy's a good director? Yes, that is that. And you know what? I'm okay. I think that was a problematic suggestion for me, because this was the second film this directive. The second feature of destructor made Yeah. Yeah, yeah. So it's really hard to be like, Okay, well, this guy's made a shit ton of films, but the second one he made should really tell you why he's bad now. So to me, that was rough, and it's actually competently made. It's a stupid movie. Yeah, it is absolutely stupid. This subject matters. He made it 18 years ago. Yeah, I mean, 2007. So I think he's grown. Yeah, and it's a concept but even so like, even with the stupidness of it, and one of the Walburg kid, I think it's Donnie Donnie Donnie Wahlberg in it as a stupid police detective. And that was the closest part to malignant that I saw. But even with that, the sets are fucking incredible. The acting is actually good. It's a stupid film about a stupid thing. But like the other thing that does not hold up is the CGI which fucking off so bad. But like all these like it's kind of Peter Pan in Wonderland. I don't know. There's like a real like, ethereal fantastical sense to it. When he gets on the little boat and rolls his way over to like the strange. I was so we can park. He and then like when the lights come on, and there's like a zillion dummies and glass cases and they all turn their head at the same time. I was like, this is really impressive. Like, if that was my second feature film, I'd be like, yeah, suck it. Like I done good. And none of it to me was like malignant none of it was a Lifetime original movie. None of it was shot. Like Hadley looked like early Blumhouse. I mean, like, a lot of the stuff he was that was coming out about that time. Yeah, so this is the one about the haunted, dummy. Yes. Yeah. Has it done to kind of, I think so. The Dummy is doing it, but it's the purse sorta Yeah. I don't know. Um, what I remember most about this movie was just how fucking boring is so far. Am I wrong on this one? No, I was entirely it was yellow. Like it was boring because it wasn't a well told. Story. Exactly. Like I think that there was really an interesting case. It was not a well. Yeah, 21% on Rotten Tomatoes. Wow. The first review, more tasteful than recent slasher flicks. But dead silence is undone by boring characters bland dialogue, and an unnecessary and obvious twist ending. Obvious. Knives. I don't I don't know about obvious, but yes, it is. 100% All of those things. I mean, I do think the actors try really hard but the dialogue is shit. And the the plot is written poorly. And I know James Wan was I don't know if he was a co writer or just the like concept writer or what I do know he had a hand in the writing. I'm not saying this man's a good writer. I'm saying he's not that bad of a filmmaker in general. Like it's still look like a fucking movie. He's not an old guy either. Right? So he had to be a kid. Yeah, I saw pictures of him he looked super young. He still looks super young. It's probably in his 20s I can't believe I'm on cooking show defending James one I never in a million years would have thought that this would be my life but here we are. Like I don't even like James one. I purposely am like oh man, I have to see another James one movie when like Matt was advertised to me I was like, I don't want to see fucking James one. But you know what? He's not bad at making like movies. It's just sometimes those movies suck is the curse of being filmmaker? Yep. Yeah like to make a lot of them I don't know any filmmaker who's as good as him so I mean as in like personally I don't personally know a filmmaker that's as good as I know some really good filmmakers out there. So you know There you go. Yeah, signing hope you get your money's worth. Oh, I did write down here. I do need there's a note I should share. clown doll has spiral cop mouth thing is pretty bizarre fuck dolls. Fuck them right in the butt. Not that first second feature. That's my that's my thought process. Alright, my watch but I also think as a second feature from a director and nothing like dead silence. Yeah, sorry, Kelly. It's kind of artsy. Hope I don't bore you please be more of a prayer. I am not entirely certain how to pronounce this Titan II or today my god you thought did Han or seen it? I Eve not I want to so that well, I'll be pleased I won't be spoilery and how I talked about it. I like raw more. Okay. I said that raw was a much, much better through line of a story say this This one is one another one of those kinds of from dusk till Dawn's where there's one movie, and then there's another movie. And they're completely different. And what happens in part A makes what happens in Part B very hard for me to accept. Oh, and so it's got some great acting. It's really well shot. It's really well done this. It is a well made movie. But the story it wants to tell is rough. Did you see this in the theater? Or? No, it's out streaming someplace. Okay. I mean, it's got such rage, rave reviews, like, Can didn't win some big award. No, I thought it was Toronto. It's Toronto, it run one thing, it was something it can do. I think it was like a big fucking deal. But I mean, it's, it is an incredibly well made film. It is. It is being marketed as kind of, or at least the marketing I've seen has been kind of horror type. But when I read what it was about, I was like, don't think this is really horror. It's incredibly brutal. There's two or three scenes that are just brutal and violent, really, really brutal, and really well done. And hard to describe without giving. It's not really a spoiler, because halfway through the movie spacing, second act two tries to kind of, I think, turn into a redemptive story for her. Oh, really. And then introduces a new character who's actually really cool and really good. But also, I mean, it's a well made movie. I'm not anybody who says I love it. I'm not gonna say you're wrong, but it's, uh, it was tough for me to pull in and go to where they wanted me to go with it. Oh, man, I want to I need to see this. I can talk to you about this further, because I would love love, love to know. But it's been October so I've been watching horror films instead. But it would follow fall in line and be just because it's gonna like if you call Henry portrait we see like, killer. Horror film is awesome. shows up in horror. It's got raw, you know, has horror film tendencies. Oh, sure. I mean, bras like, Chick eating people, right? Yeah. Yeah. But so yeah, I would just see it. But it just it was a challenging watch and a lot of ways which I think is great. I I'm like Kelly I like it when a movie challenges me. You open this can of worms. If if anything so listeners like him for being more of a you might be surprised. I it's just hard because I I get I get Eric where it's coming from but I am also a giant nerd. So I know. Well, I mean, I would say the three of us are giant nerds. That's true. That's true. A movie that requires no thought that hey, I'm surprised that I liked was army of thieves. Although I I didn't see this pretty cool to army of the dead on Netflix right now. As of this weekend, same creative team. Well, Zack, I believe wrote it and produced it a different director and I gotta say, I like the look of this a lot more. Oh, it focuses on that. The the safe cracker dude. Yeah, it's a cracker. So it's, it's kind of his story. And it's really just a heist movie. And in the background, you keep seeing shit happening in Las Vegas. Oh, and so that's really the only title of WoW, army of the dead. And I was like, at first I was like, I wish you didn't do this. There's no need for this sort of thinking. I think I want to see a bunch of movies that are just regular stories that are taking place while a zombie apocalypse is just starting out. That sounds so fucking fun. It was actually quite a bit better than Army of the Dead. Were their encounters with any of the undead or is it basically just in that world stuff in there? You know, dream sequences, things like that. That was like oh, this didn't need to happen come combat is hitting Earth and everyone is having nightmares. I just thought it was GOOD. Clean, fun. Nice and clean. I mean, dirty. Well, I went and saw a film last night in theater at the Ipek and regimen which I can't highly recommend after last night, but that's okay. I went and saw last night and so home Oh really? Yeah. Good thing then you Edgar Wright movie. I'm really Yeah. I look Edgar Wright finally stumbled. Well, I mean a lot of people would argue that he has before I don't love worlds and and I think I'm probably the only person on planet earth that likes baby driver and that's a great movie. Oh, good. Okay, you guys are literally the only person who have said I love baby driver too. And they're like, Yeah, Everyone I was like it's a pile of trash twice in the theater. That's how much I love. Yeah. So um, you know, I love a great I was watching spaced when space was on like, I know this guy it's you know, but um yeah, I look, it's not a comedy, and I don't know how good he is at straight dramas. Oh, it's not. It's not theirs. It is just a street drama with horror elements mixed in. And it's a very boring movie. Oh no, I the best not what I would have expected. I know. I know. But like, I mean that none of the characters are really fleshed out. Like a lot of stuff that's happening is just for like a look 60s London. And you can only do that for so long. Oh, I might love this movie. I loved it because I lived in England. And I kept being like, oh my god, I used to go there. And oh, man that's like, just around the corner from my like, it's really said about a 10 minute walk from where I used to live. So for me, I was like, fuck, yes. And then they have one scene at a Student Union. And I worked for two years at the University London Student Union. So I was like, two unions are not that cool. So that was kind of my participation. But as far as the actual story, I guess, like maybe last 15 minutes are pretty good. But a lot of the rest of it. It's really tough. It's not it's not his best. Very sorry to hear this. Unfortunately. I'm too big of a right fan to pass it. So I think you should check it out. You know, and maybe, you know, maybe you'll get something out of it that I didn't I just I wish I wanted so badly to love this. The trailer is so good. Yeah. Yeah, that's too bad. Yeah, I kinda had a similar experience with the film, although not quite. I liked it more than you like this one. If you seen seance No, no, Simon Barrett's directorial debut. The assignment from the guest and the writer of the guests. Say your next I don't think I've even heard of this. What is this all about? shutter? Oh, okay. And it's okay. The rough part? Is that the biggest letdown for the film for me? Well, two of them. One is the writing. It's not well told of a story. That's a bummer. Yeah. It's just like, oh, oh, it's gonna go here. Oh, no. Okay. Yeah, it really just okay. When there, it didn't move any, like, the guest has all kinds of interesting shit going on. Your next is just phenomenal. I mean, they're both really interesting, complex stories. And I'm a fan of him because he does frequent appearances on vinegar syndrome extras. Review him for various film. Wonderful takes. I think if he does another one, I think he could be really good. There's also a very weird visual style in this in that when they do night scenes instead of at least I think that's what it was trying to figure out what he's doing and why it's happening. And these some scenes looked kind of terrible. Because they had this weird doll sheen over the top of them. Like the light was dimmed, but it was dammed in a weird filter way. And I thought was that the whole movie then you'd see another scene and it looked great. It sounds like a mistake. In and owl, okay. I think I think it's what he was doing to represent dark. Oh, as opposed to just having, you know, we're light source like people usually do or something. He decided I'm just gonna put this weird film over all the scenes there in the dark or something. And it looks awful. Oh, no, it just looks terrible. And then when it's not there, it looks great. So I was like, This is a weird weird film. And it's it's fun. Yeah, I mean, it's worth watching. It's not terrible, but have the writing be the weakest part of one of his films as I dammit. Scary in any moments. or anything like that. Cool effects. It's it's a story of sort of a slasher film sound movie, I guess. Oh, yeah. That's interesting mix of clearly he saves his best work for different people to direct Yeah, yeah, I think so. But Oh, watch whatever he does next again. So like your rice like I'll see whatever, just because Yeah. Well, okay. Um, why don't we take a little break? Because you know, it's Halloween while we're recording this but you know what else they call this night? Ninja Nomad, Ninja November Eve. It really rolls off the tongue let's take a break. We'll be right back. to Joe's lose against garlic, just wrote the GI Joe ninja ninja moves. Here's the guys on let me just lifting with under missiles Pinsent strict speed. And now join Cobra ninja leaders kinsmen ready to spring into action in their own fast attack vehicles with a ninja surprise. GI Joe ninja lightning and Ninja figures full separately miseries come with exclusive figures available and a goal to build our ultimate weapon. We have returned and Vanessa I gotta say, and you both really surprised me when you suggested we do an entire month. I am all for it. Yeah, we really convinced you we really brought your um, you Yes. I'm so stoked. Tell us what you had in mind when you decided to do this. Well, I what I had in mind is I watched this goddamn movie A month ago and I want to talk about it so I can get out. And, and then somehow magically, this turned into it's going to be the next four weeks of my life full disclosure. Kelly sent this and I thought it was a joke. Like, holy shit, he's serious. Let's go for it. You realize? Kelly never jokes. He must be serious. I mean, look at there's a big hole in my film watching know how and it is ninja shaped. So I am okay with diving further into this but I will say ninjas are not like my forte. It's not my favorite thing. Unless they're turtle right and I'm six I just assumed to be ninja turtle move. i It's been tempting but I really want to expand my horizons so there will be probably at least one but I'm not going to go full Ninja Turtles there's only I mean I've got like two three and I guess the animated stuff left but rough watch anyway. This ninja November so for ninja November week one I went with five elements ninjas from 1982 Shalom go show me the functional suit this came up on my research and I decided this looks really stupid. Sure, but because only do movies look really stupid. Did you decide to watch it anyway? No, I did. Okay, well, this is a fucking treat. I wish I was really, there are some times when I'm watching a movie that I'm really trying to maintain the plot. And like, hold on to what is happening in my head on any level. And this definitely fell into that category. Where Yes, there are fun crazy things happening. But there's a story in there. I'm sure of it. So that was the challenge with this one. Um, before we dive into that, though, Rotten Tomatoes, nothing from critics. Oh 89% from audience which had over 100 votes. So okay. She pleaser. Absolutely. This is a Hong Kong martial arts film. It's a shot brothers picture, which means stuff to people who know ninja movie style. Yeah. It's written and directed by Chun Chang, who is the leading martial arts director in Hong Kong in the 1970s and most one of the most prolific directors for Shaw Brothers Studios. His most revered films include dynasty of blood, aka blood brothers, and five Deadly Venoms. He influenced other directors such as John Woo and Lu che laying out Hey, nameless made famous Hong Kong stars including Philip Chung, fun Kwok and foo Chang and lung T. declared he would stop working when he made his 100 and first film, but only made it unfortunately to 95. Holy crap. So only 9595 movies, unfortunately, a really low number here, and he died in 2002. So it was co written by Kenny, who has written 233 films, oh, and acted in 12. He's known for a new adventure of wisely, the 36th Chamber of Shaolin and the Wesley's mysterious file. So obviously, I know nothing of any of these, but they are very important, interesting people. So I hope that our listeners are into it. Starring Laurie lots of martial artists. I mean, like, Okay, I wrote some news down, but I didn't write down what they're in because they're martial artists who were in a fuck ton of films that I have not seen before. So it was Tian Qi Chang as show team how Ming low as shown. 10 say, Tang swing. Long as brotherly. And Michael why man, why man chan as chin team June, so Wow. I am sure I butchered those. I am so sorry. Alright, so the plot. Look, guys. So I, I really was trying and I wrote notes, and it was I was struggling. But I did however, look up the plot so that I could iterate to you what happened in this movie. Now, none of this is a spoiler, because you will not know what any of it means. When you're watching it. You'll only be like, Whoa, there's like trees. There's guys dressed this trees fighting each other, which is pretty special. But the plot in ancient Hong Kong chief Hong challenges his rival Yin, Xin for the title of martial arts master, their students face off against each other. And when his students are easily defeated, Hong calls in a samurai to fight on his behalf. When the samurai defeats zing student he commits suicide and shame. Like literally right there. It's extremely confusing. I was like you did really good though. And I'm out by Zayn students Ling Zhi Cheng rises to the challenge and defeats the samurai. But before the samurai commit suicide, he warns that an allied ninja clan will seek revenge for his death. As a final blow. He tosses a sharp ring at master Zang was poisoned as he catches it. I wish I could describe what's happening. So you've got like a room this is what you actually see is like a room full of dudes. Some of them look like 1970s sci fi extras where the costume designer had like one long piece of fabric and just was like alright, you this is going to drape you this is gonna wrap around you in this way you I'm just gonna cut it really fun and a bunch of weird shapes and just like it's crazy. It's crazy. This is one of those like fine martial arts movies where people like like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Yeah, it's to a certain extent, but way more like, I think there's wires and stuff probably. But it's, it's it feels homemade. It feels like the What's that movie where Jack Black? Be Kind Rewind. Where it's like you're making a movie in the style of with what you have around your house. That's what it feels like. Right? So yes. And then you have a bunch of guys who are dressed like appropriately and like black or whatever on one side. So you have cool looking dudes who look like normal ninjas on one side and on the other side. Fucking What the hell is happening right now like there are dudes like with ponytails. There was one person I was sure the main guy by the way, who I was sure was a girl because he's got a ponytail and he has bangs, and they're like real cute. Like really, really cute and like it's all up and like, it looks so manicured. And he is not he's not a lady. Anyway, and they're like fighting and you're like okay, I guess a bunch of dudes are fighting each other and these two old guys are sitting nearby one guy in very bad old person makeup. extremely upsetting old person Mako get the gray spray in his hair totally. Like I know real wrinkles but just padded with like lots of honey makeup. I love that. Oh my god. It's very, very, I guess there's like a history of like Chinese opera and it is really firmly in that world they are it is theatrical as fuck. And they're just like slapping each other and then one guy comes in who seems to be good at it. And then he commits suicide and you're like, okay, and then he throws a ring and one of the old guys catches it. And then he's like, oh, and you're like, what happened right now? So that's what happened. He got poisoned. It's okay. He can just like chill out for a while and prolong his death for like several months if he just really like meditates, so it's fine. Shortly after, shortly after a challenge letter arrives from the five elements, ninjas worried it is a trap. The two best students stay to defend the school while the rest split off to fight the enemies. The enemies include Earth fire, water, wood and gold. I thought the fifth element was love I did to where's the little kid from a Captain Planet? Art Yeah, so also these elements are very exciting. Earth Fire Water wood gold, I will say actually, so these different element ninjas again, I really didn't know what was happening. I didn't even know they were going to school until I looked at the Wikipedia. But the the different elements are phenomenal. This is by far the strongest part of the film, because you've got the like the earth guys who like literally pop up from like the walk onto a open ground and then do just pop up out of the ground and start fighting awesome. And they like disappear back into the ground water. Same thing. They're like they have the little reads where they're like kind of underneath the water and they're breathing through it so nobody sees they're there. And there's some guys standing on a bridge and then they pop up out of the water like spring up and they're just murder them and it's like like a murder pure everywhere murder. And the trees I mean would look you know the bit of Wizard of Oz where like the trees come alive and they get a shrubbery. Pick your apples. Imagine that. But they're fighting these like dudes in full big like 12 foot tree costumes being like, alright, like kicking at him and winning. By the way. You are not making me want to see this film less. Yes. Oh, no, no, no. It is a magical experience. I'm just saying it is confusing as hell. Look, I don't I don't regret my time watching this movie. It is an incredible film. I think I'm not going to get anything better than this. And then ninja realm. I'm just saying What the actual fuck was I watching? Gold? I don't they have hats. They have fun gold hats and they reflect in the people's eyes and they can't see and then they murder them. It's there's so much Gore so much. Yeah, um, okay. So these these people who are not the best from the school, go and fight these elements and they're killed, rightfully so. Also the gold hats. Shoot knives. Yeah, so, Han is thrilled that the Rival Schools defeated but the leader ninja who consulted him about doing this Ching fun mudo advises, they destroy Zhang school. So they send in an annoying and kind of ugly female spy name send Ji, who pretends to be a victim of a cruel dude who slaps her bunch and then takes refuge in the school while secretly making a map of their defenses that she sends back. This chick is like the most annoying human being on that she is the weak link of this phone. You're like could you just stop for two seconds lady the ninjas invade with the power of ninjutsu, Denton da and kill everyone except for how, which is the dude with the exceptionally bad hair. He has such a pretty pretty ponytail though. We have not really hardly seen him up until this moment. I thought it was a different main character. I was that guy just freakin dies. But he's a main character. Now he retreats to retrain in the powerful ninja fighting style with an old master at a hut in the middle of nowhere, for some reason, then he along with three other of the students of the hut guy go on a quest for revenge and they murder all of the elements in very satisfying and gross ways. Then they find Muto the weird guy who's meant manipulating the other schoolmaster in the earth realm. He is very difficult to fight and uses gnarly foot cleats to rip the skin off of people's just the fucking rough. Finally the four are able to spear him down because he keeps going underground, up ground on different points. So the spear him down to the ground and And they tear him in half but unfortunately our main character whose name I've forgotten is wounded in the process mortally so and is not going to really necessarily maybe he'll if I don't I don't who knows however I want to spoil this man can film his his brothers the other ninja dudes are they run up and destroy the Earth symbol? And then they literally like jump freeze frame smile that's the end. Yeah. Oh, it's in the lose it It is seriously what credits one step away from mid air high five What year was this from again this year two I think you said yeah 1982 Correct. Wow, I'm just in this one demo show. I you know what i i Once I had it I was like, I'm keeping this fucker. Because you guys, Kelly you have to see this phone like you have to see this fuckin film. Alright, the good the subtitles for random moments they they have like backward jump and patients and hook sickle. They have like weird subtitles that just show up to explain random things you're seeing. But for no reason. Like it's not waiting they saying it's not like on a piece of paper they're reading it's like patients you're like whoa okay. It's not like the subtitle one where if you accidentally choose the no it is not like a descriptive thing for blind people. Ah, this is lying to people I don't know Oh. titles for the Blind Eye video edit ladies and gentlemen. You're welcome. Weapon weapon the four weapons the four ninjas use are the cool four ninjas the end who are going and killing all the elements. It's like one weapon that they each have and it's slightly changes for each enemy type they encounter. So every time they go into a new space their weapons like morphed a little to be suited for that kind of enemy and it's so fucking cool. There are great fights in general with weird unique elements there's a gnarly ass deaths and it is literally insane it's literally fucking insane the bad it's confusing the history of challenges the meditate poison away the main guy dying partway in and then there's a new main guy oh there's a weird key thing where there's this guy who's like it's a key and you'll know when to use it and it's like the most random fucking moment and you're like How How did anyone know? This was the moment a key would be important he costumes of the main ninja clan oh I put down look like an elementary school production of a Latin but the costumes for the elements are really fun. How just bad hair bad costume bad everything send you the chick Her eyebrows are upsetting to stare at and watching her seduce a bro is hella gross. Old people make a bad idea of Japanese people is definitely a bit off. They were there like the art like the whole like art of ninjutsu thing was really you could tell there was some culture, like Miss misunderstandings happening. Like how in Japan they're like, don't get Santa Claus in horrific ways. It feels a little bit like that. In my research, I found out that Japan, their own take on ninjas is not nearly as prevalent in America and especially in Hong Kong or China. They are really obsessed with ninjas over there. Oh, yeah. Really? The Japanese are just kind of like, really? Yeah, out of all the things we got. Yeah, actually, a lot of the films that I've researched so far for this month have been like, way more popular in other countries. Yes. Yeah. I mean, I was even like, wonder is looking for a movie to watch. I'm going okay, cure. Kurosawa must have done something nope, not a thing with ninjas it's all samurai right? It's there well they're not looked on favorably right Japan are they like considered to be like the gang kind of thing where they've got tattoos and stuff or is that well, it's more that they were assassins and not honorable? Okay. Gotcha. Interesting. Yeah, I'm learning a lot people are you're on a wild ride. Um, yeah, I said overall wild ride that I would absolutely advise anyone and everyone to check out less you're squeamish about people being pulled in half. I only found three notes. A trivia TV version edits out the final boss being pulled into all movie describes the film as a legend amongst fans of Asian coat fair and for once the legend lives up to the hype. And Michael brooks of Idaho. I was like, yep. Michael brook of sight and sound said it's delirious verve and invention. More than To compensate, the body count is enormous even for chains notoriously Gore drenched standards. Though the cartoonishly unrealistic blood spurts and dissembled fighter meeting his doom after slipping on his own dangling, dangling end trails smacks more of Monty Python Peckinpah tribute than anything especially disturbing well said there you go I have only one thing to say to this oh my god Whoa, where did that come from? superimpose a picture of that over our logo for the month look at his mouth he's just Griffing This is a little cute teddy bear cute teddy bear in a Karate outfit. Him Allen's my favorite Wow wow wow just keep him out here all month long have you had this gentleman? over 20 years Wow. worth keeping definitely I just remember walking past this little thing at Fred Meyers like an end cap with all of these and I just squeeze it like I squeeze every toy that makes noise and then I was like well I must have this You sound just like me in the Fred Meyer Yes, that's fucking insane. He will come home with me now. Eric would you like to go next? Sure. Please I cannot wait to hear of a film that is equally nuts and also makes us very different kind of nuts actually. But anyways the completely ridiculously named ninja three the domination he is the most feared and powerful warrior a ninja who breaks from ancient tradition and explodes onto America is sold possesses the body of an innocent woman and transformed her into a lethal assassin. Is your mother the master ninja to destroy? Then into the ninja ninja three begin an epic struggle of superhuman strength and supernatural forces. Ninja the domination exactly yes. Fuck 1984 I remember it well. Good here. This is Scream Factory release of this film Rotten Tomatoes rating 40 from critics 53 from crowd which may be a little high but not outrageous. No idea what the budget is no idea what kind of box office it did this was a Canon films released and if you're a hardcore cult filmmaker you are film lover you know who canon was in the 80s and the fantastic documentaries and books that have been written about them? Well, this is one of their films. Directed by Sam Furstenberg, who also directed Revenge Of The Ninja. American Ninja the confrontation. American samurai Revenge Of The Ninja American warrior the barbarians anybody I know you're familiar with the barbarians you know that fun? No. These twin bodybuilders in the 80s who made a movie? Oh yeah, literally called themselves the barbarian brothers. Oh, that sounds like the 80s Yeah. Did they have stretchy action figures that you could pull? No, they were very oily tan Yeah. And very shortly after this first. Starring. Show Cusi G has been in a lot of shit. Ninja Assassin blind fury. nine deaths of the ninja Revenge Of The Ninja enter the Ninja. I think he was in every cannon ninja fell. Well, so you're doing part three. The first one was entry To the Ninja. The second one was Revenge Of The Ninja. And this is ninja three. That's right. They couldn't go either the other ones ninja or Ninja two. This was probably because like this is connected to ninja one and two as Halloween three is connected to Halloween in it. They're not at all. Lucinda Dickey breaking, breaking Varian grease to break into Electric Boogaloo. Cheerleader camp. You remember that one? I don't think I do. It was made or written by somebody. We went to the film school with. Oh no, you're thinking of cheerleader ninja ninja. That's the one Yes. Which I researched and was possibly going to do Scott Becker was in Yes, that's the one. Wow. James Hong. This man has not worked much. He has 445 credits Jesus. Vanessa, is that a record? Really? I feel like we need to keep track of the strange aeons radio render the highs. Yeah, he's one of those guys. If you've watched movies, you've seen him. Yeah, but he was in Blade Runner. He was the AI guy and Blade Runner Big Trouble in Little China. Star Wars, turtles movies, balls of fury. And like shit mark and David Chung from Repo Man missing an action to and some people this movie is nuts. It's it starts off with a man in an all white suit going through the desert to find a cave to find some weapons that I believe are possessed by a ninja spirit. Oh, the most impressive part of the scene of the segment is how that white suit stays perfectly clean as he wanders through the desert, climbs up to a cave and digs to get the shit out as a dancer. So but now he's got his ninja. I don't know if they're also called geese, like regular cronies. But anyways, and he's ready to kick ass for I have no idea who or why or what. But a whole bunch of people now have been shown playing golf. Bit of a shift. Yes. And then they've got security guards and a bunch of ninjas show up and kick the crap out of the security guards and there's a blow gun involved. And of course, none survived the ninja attack, but one of them and just gets away. The cops have now shown up. They're chasing him around. And he starts fighting back and punches through cars and through windows and starts killing some of the cops and now there's cops and helicopters around and they're all shooting at him. He grabs onto the helicopter and puts a ninja star between his toes and kicks at the pilot hitting him with the star. Oh, and in a glorious cannon. Money Saving fit you see the helicopter spotter fly down below a hill that big explosion comes up I'd say about 15 minutes in the guy's probably taken out 50 some odd people and in the end the cops get him or do they? Oh as he will find out later in this complicated storyline. He is the exorcist he's the person who's going to possessed possess a person later. So he's sort of dead but he's not really Oh. And then we move to the 80s power songs man. Such a bad ad song. And so this introduces our lead woman who's uh she does get her ninja powers because she sees somebody kind of helps them he touches her and ninja powers transpire. So she had she had no formal training before the right exactly yeah, no no fighting about of course it's the ad so next scene she's in an aerobics tights with her friend and around her robe with class, but she's the teacher the aerobics Wow, she's you know she's really in shape. And then it's the like the Let's Get Physical kind of montage of workouts for the bad weightlifting and guys being creepy as far as headbands and wristbands. There you go. Yeah, that's it. Keep the sweat out. Or why do your wrist is really super hot. Okay, Vanessa cheese. My Barbies had them on it. After class, everybody's leaving, and a few of the leering men decide that they're going to vary over overtly harass one of the women coming out of the class. And I mean, it's it's like, this feels like it's escalating to we're going to rape you but there's like 15 people around. And guess who now has super ninja powers? So, Christie comes her name is Christie comes out and voice kicks the crap out of the guys in these spectacular quote spectacular fight scene. Exactly. And it sounds like her. The so anyway, so now we know she's got powers. Now she's going back to her apartment. Hey, guess who's Archie has on the wall? It's the 80s It's a Nagle. I was gonna say. Well, you may go. Yes. And but you do not know who that is. I do not. I think you saw it. You go. Oh, yeah, that's the 80s Yeah. Every Duran Duran cover. Oh, it was painted by him in the 80s very what would you call it? A Deco. Yeah. Yeah, that's a good word for it. Strong lines. very definitive. It's not. There's not a lot of shading or anything going on in Oh, so Tony. Okay. All right. Yeah. And through the harassment she meets a cop he starts to hit on her and she has no interest in one episode. In him whatsoever until suddenly now they're straddling each other and she's wearing a towel. Whoa. And exactly, maybe it's almost that fast in the movie. But what what? Did the possess ninja find him particularly attractive? I'm not sure. Yes, we're going to bang that one. And then what might be one of the least sexy things I've seen in a film. She takes a VA juice can parse it down her neck like in some weird seductive way. Oh, no. No tomatoes. Come to me. Gentlemen. Covered in soup. Ah. That night though, after tomato juicing him. She's visited by three ghosts. The ghosts are Chris. No, not that one. No, wait. It's a sword coming out of a sheath and handing itself to her as it floats across the sky. Yeah, very amazing. Wire work. Let me tell you. And then there's a wind and fog and strange lights coming from her closet. She's starting to transform it to more of a ninja. Oh, by the way, Mr. Ghosh he sleeps with give Robin Williams a run for his money in the Harry department, Billy. Oh, no. That boy could make sweaters from his shoulder. That sounds like the 80s. And now we've got the new villain. There's a new badass antennae know how you know that? He's got an eyepatch on Fuck, man, everybody who lost an eye you know, they're like, I'm not a bad person. You guys. Treat me like she has a video game in a row. For some reason. I think this is the reason start spewing fog and making crazy noises and all this weird shits going on. Here comes the Floating Sword again. Uh huh. She's even more ninja because she's growling at the camera. Okay, she even gets a ninja outfit now. She's ready to hunt. Something. But there's somebody fight choreography in this film. This is not good. Mm hmm. It's really rough. So that's not so much fun. But one of her friends figured out that she thinks she needs an exorcism because she's acting so weird and kicking the crap out of people and starting to kill people. That sounds very normal for an hour of his instructor though. Yep. So they go to the exorcism scene, which is where I believe what's his name of the form 45 credits his and he performs the exorcism on Tiser up in this weird spread eagle formation and she starts yelling at him in Japanese and oh my god. Anyways, and of course he realizes what's happened and he tells her she's in trouble because only a ninja can destroy a ninja. Oh my god. True look. That's right. So she has to find a ninja to get exercise from the ninja in her sure to go with that. Okay. All right. I'm just trying to keep up here and in you know, a wonderful example of using your supplies she uses her El Camino to transfer one of the bodies that she's destroyed. Camino perfect. More ninja possession stuff fog light sounds all that shit. The sounds almost sound like Gremlins to the theater. Theater but then they're partying around and stuff and puts on bad music trying to dance out the coming on the exorcism but it just doesn't work in starts to get revenge on cops that killed the guy and the early scene, our golf guy killer anyway, When the guy wearing the eyepatch gets involved, the fights get significantly better. He's obviously I'm pretty sure he's the fight choreographer and the actor has been in all this stuff. Oh, was that show? You know? Cuz Suji notes and trivia why because the movie does not need further analysis. It is. It's just crazy. If you want to see a ninja based exorcism movie, this is the one to see. The tagline. He's the ultimate killer. She's the perfect weapon. I like that one. Well, I mean, it's cannon they could advertise. It was released in Italy as transfers. Really? I think I've heard that name. But not as a transfers movie. Oh, no, there's no transfers for some reason. Probably that arcade machine that was in our part apartment was a prototype of a game called bouncer which never came out. But it was a real working paper game system that just nobody knew what it was. And I noticed this when the guy showed up with this eyepatch. When the eyepatch looks really strange. What is wrong with it? It's a hand guard from a samurai sword. Oh, so it's like little flowery. And it has a slit in the middle. Oh, is it made of metal? I don't know which this one is made of the University of close enough to know for sure. But they would hang heavy on your head. I would think so. Yes. Oh, there's an interview on the documentary with Scindia the lead and said both of the big cannon guys were in or audition she had no idea who they were. She was F she was hired with three days notice to be on set and never read the script didn't know what she was necessarily doing. Just knew that she got the lead in the movie. Oh, that's all the film was cut by one minute and 12 seconds in the UK because of the use of the throwing stars. Oh yep, no, they did hate the throwing stars pretty hard. It is the third and final entry in the ninja trilogy. It has nothing to do with the first I've said before and show was in all of them. Yeah, I think even like Revenge Of The Ninja has nothing to do with enter the Ninja. The Ninja trilogy has nothing to do with each other. It's just three ninja forms. Exactly. Yes. stacked together. Get the box that Kenny cannon ended up writing a five picture deal for Lucinda. But after a couple of them came out and they went so bad. She got to do break in break into Electric Boogaloo and break in three Oh which was planned but fell apart made Gaza and she also ended up in the bismal Alan Quartermaine and the Lost City of Gold Oh boy. That was bad they just kind of fell out she went away and cannon was done working with her and then cannon went away so I have only one thing to say about this yes start your higher count now for four episodes. I'm so grateful suddenly that Kelly does not have access to one of those like noise machines do morning traffic my man look once we really start making some money I'm hiring a producer will also be here and he'll be able to do sound effects while we're talking. Oh there you go. All right, great. Okay, you guys. I picked the winner my movie is from 2013 and it is called ninja to shadow of a tear log off somewhere inside the jungles outside going after him going to Burma it's suicide it's justice scores territory isn't worse girl why'd you ask me about this makes you a target. I'm telling you to Six revenge should take to raise the needle lot more than that sounds artsy budget 2.6 million box office about 545,000 Oh sad. The audience Rotten Tomatoes gives this 43% I will give a blowjob to one of you who figures out what the critics got one answer the question now 43 That's confusing, frankly. Rotten Tomatoes critics on this 100% Like two critics. Critics Oh my god. Already high praise is directed by Isaac Florentine. He directed Max Havoc Curse of the dragon. assassins bullet battle BROWN The Art of War and Power Rangers episode so you kind of know where this guy is coming from based on the titles of his movies. They're written by David and White, who wrote Special Forces Henry's crime undisputed to an undisputed three and Ricky Rosen's Bar Mitzvah is, is I like something he did for a friend. I hope that this is a natural Bar Mitzvah or some reason it has an IMDB credit. I do. Ah, it's star Scott Adkins who has 16 credits including Ninja Zero Dark 30 Expendables to dr. strange and the upcoming John Wick four. Oh, it stars Kane Katsuji from Godzilla Final Wars. He was in the movie War. Zero Tolerance the driver and he is the son of show Kosygin Oh, hey, and it also stars Mika. He GA she was in Ninja, Perfect Blue rogue ninja Alien vs. Ninja, and episodes of Kamen Rider. Okay. This story. Yay. I lead guys name is Casey Bowman, which doesn't sound like a tough guy name. And I think that's kind of the point because this guy's pretty badass. He's an American martial artist who has settled down from the events of the first film, which I did not bother to watch. But we are led to believe that whatever happened there was enough that he was just like, I have had enough of this life and he's buried the lead actress from that film. And they are expecting their first child. Oh, however, he goes shopping for a pendant in town. And after picking one out he's attacked by two muggers. He's a peaceful guy offers up his wallet and everything but they want the pendant to dig. And that is unacceptable. trounces them pretty soundly. But it's clear that they were no ordinary mugger. They pulled a knife on him and it was one of those like a Shinto blade or something. And it's like, huh, that seems oddly specific for just a couple of muggers. Oh, by the way, this is all happening in Japan. So maybe the muggers carry Shinto blades over there. Never been mowed in Japan now. Same. So, later that night, he gives his wife the pendant and you guys it is the ugliest. It gives Asha run for the money for that girl from Linda now. This thing is the size of like a T saucer and it goes around your neck and it's got the sign for peace on it and are the Japanese character for peace on it not not our body chicken for peace. But she's a good wife and she's like, Oh, it's lovely. Who's the prop guy that came up with this and handed this in and then they okayed it. Remember when we did our movie and and our lady who was doing the costuming she had the patches for our police officers. Oh jeez. It was like it was like the worst thing in the world. Just like we're gonna have to figure out how to not use these. Oh man. So then he realizes that he forgot to pick up an ingredient for their dinner so he rushes to the corner store to pick it up. But when he gets back, his wife and unborn have bad bad. No, that's really rough. It's hot. It is the lamest of ways to get you Your your character movie is like a Whoa, he is. I mean, this is happening in 10 minutes his wife is about like, not like Deathwish where it's like Jesus Christ. I mean, how, how pregnant are we talking? You couldn't even tell. Okay? Now she still looked gorgeous. Alright, she wasn't a big fat girl. Oh my god Wow. At the funeral, he is approached by a former student of his name Nakata invites him to come back to Thailand with him and ease his pain by basically becoming a warrior monk at this guy's dojo. But he's like, fuck now I've got some unfinished business. And the writing in this is a little weak, because He literally says, I've got some unfinished business and his friend says, with who? Do we really I feel like we can all put this together what? Tell me more. So see, he remembers the fighting style of the two muggers. And he heads to that dojo, where he beats the shit out of everyone until they tell him about the two men who attack him. And then he finds those guys and he leaves them to their desk in a dark alley. Oh, Sweet Revenge, very Daredevil. Rank Ben search. That is not really the end. So he decided to take a buddy up on the offer to go to Thailand now that he's murdered a couple of people. Sir, he can't control his anger there at the dojo and he actually hurts one of the students. And then his friend is like yelling at him, like, What's your fucking problem? Get it together? And he's like, You don't understand. So he goes into town and he gets drunk and he beats the shit out of a bunch of assholes in a bar. Very healthy. Yeah. But when he gets back to his friend's dojo, he finds the one of the students has been killed by the same weapon that killed his wife. Whoa. And he realized the killer thought it was him that he was killing so he's like, Ah, so definitely. Well, you know, you've got a lot more story coherent story than just so wrote. And by the books, it just breaks down like a cheap shotgun after this. Um, find out there's a generations old revenge plot going on a huge drug cartel and a bunch of other nonsense. None of it really matters. The movie exists literally to show off the fight scenes, which are kind of spectacular. But there's, there's a great one take fight in the middle of this that is just like, Fuck, I mean, you just, you know, halfway through this couple of minute fight, you realize there hasn't been a take. This has all just been a camera watching these guys love each other. That's incredible. And this is, you know, we're making fun of these movies and everything. But these fight sequences are like top notch. This is really a movie worth watching just for that. And then it turns out his friend Nakahara killed his wife and twists that you see way back when he's first introduced. As soon as you see that the funeral like you should, you know, take a break and all this stuff. I was like, Oh, we're gonna find out he killed his wife for some reason. Oh, what a three still quite entertaining. Really good type of this. I could find very little on the TV to talk about, but for the UK. They did require scenes cut of animal cruelty. Oh, this case they have a cockfighting scene in there. And cut that out. Sure. One of my favorite things about this movie, though, is near the end. In the subtitles, you can clearly hear one of the guys calling Scott or Casey Scott Atkins Gaijin, which means outsider. But the subtitle se kaiju of course is a j by Sir so good. That was my movie. I loved it. I give it for up way too much fun. Wow. I mean, I don't think they're I don't think there was a winner this week. I think they were all winners. Oh, oh, that's nice. But the real winner was my movie when I was the only one that had a coherent plot and was shot in this century. And mine i dudes dressed as trees fighting. I'm sorry, you can't win. You know what? I think I might be watching your movie tonight. Yeah, it's like way too much. You got a shot brothers were huge. When I worked at Suncoast. We've had people come in and they do have anything by the Shaw Brothers. Didn't matter what the movie was. Hey, Bruce Lee is start. Yeah. Yeah, well, God whose turn is it? It doesn't matter. Oh, well done. I'm gonna say it's my turn next week. When one of us breaks this pattern, what if one of us is like, you know what, no, no more. No more pinches No? How? No way. Oh, my god. Uh, yeah. Well, we went out of order a little bit, or I wrote them out of order. You usually follow Vanessa. So? Yes. Okay, your turn. All right. What do you want to talk about ninjas? Okay, any, anything more just ninjas just didn't just alright. Yeah, it's November, and it's ninja November. I feel like I've heard that somewhere. I'm not sure maybe it's on my calendar. Great if we start something with this, and like next November, we see other people. Remember, I've had to explain our tasks to several people. Now. We're like, huh, Ninja November. Interesting.
