Ninja Assassin

Movie Drinking Games

With the success of the Matrix movies and V for Vendetta, James McTeigue has now brought an onslaught of CGI blood and mayhem to the ninja genre with Ninja Assassin. Starring pop star Rain as an often-shirtless ninja assassin, this movie has the most self-explanatory title since A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell. You may or may not have liked it in the theaters, but this game will definitely make you happier while you watch it.

Rob Hunter loves movies. He also loves taking bloody revenge on the bastards who who acted inappropriately towards his children. These two joys come together in the form of cash money payments that he receives every week and immediately uses to buy more DVDs. This week… Armored, Ninja Assassin, South park and more!

Hello again movie fans! You may have noticed that there was no Movie Watcher’s Guide to October. There are several completely legitimate reasons for this, but instead of boring you with details please allow me to give a quick recap of the month’s box-office releases… The Invention of Lying, Whip It, Amelia, Astro Boy, Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, and Saw VI all pretty much bombed, while Zombieland, Couples Retreat, Law Abiding Citizen, Where the Wild Things Are, and Paranormal Activity all did fair to brisk business. There, now you’re caught up through October. On to November! November 6th The Box Who did it? Directed and written by Richard Kelly; starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, Frank Langella What is it? A young couple receives a mysterious box containing only a button and a note. Press the button and two things will happen… one, they’ll receive $1 million dollars, and two, someone in the world will die. Will they press the button? Duh… What about it? Kelly has taken a classic short story by Richard Matheson (“Button, Button”), which was previously made into an episode of “The Twilight Zone,” and turned it into a movie. It’s not always a wise move to stretch something from a much shorter medium to a feature film, and early reviews (like the one at Gone Elsewhere) have been fair to meh about it which doesn’t bode too well for the movie. Or for Kelly… who some are starting to suspect was nothing but lucky with his debut film, Donnie Darko. Watch […]
