Trash Cinema:  Surf Ninjas/ 3 Ninjas

Somewhere along the way ninjas stop being dangerous and cool and basically became Home alone style villains.   I blame these movies for this.   Surf ninjas is dumb but kind of fun.  3 ninjas is the kind of movie that makes you rather spend the same amount of time hitting yourself in the face with a dead fish.

Video Night!:  Mom and Dad save the World & Stay Tuned

We started this episode as Trash Cinema since both movies bombed and hated by critics.  Here is the weird thing, we loved both movies and somehow it seemed more appropriate for the Video Night podcast.  So you know....Crossover!
