Here in the DVD rotation are two movies that kinda suck, "The Hunted" with Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro and "Ninja Cheerleaders" with George Takei.
First off I bought "The Hunted" for exactly one second of that film. A guy I worked with in the Army Reserve was an extra and I wanted to see if I could spot him. I did. Lots of good knife porn in the form of the Tom Brown tracker. The tracker looks like it would make a good hunting knife even if it is a poor survival knife. How two Oscar winners could make such an awkward film has to be the result of poor directing. The story of a failed surrogate father figure, the prodigal son, and redemption is hinted at, but the characters seem so emotionally unavailable even to themselves that it all comes off as clumsy. I guess the Tom Brown Tracker was there to carve away at all the wooden acting.
Secondly, who could resist something as cheesy as "Ninja Cheerleaders"? Almost as cheesy as D.E.B.S. (without the star power) in the whole girl power theme, but more like a low budget "Charlie's Angels". Every once in while a few good lines of dialog would pop out, but the movie needed some serious editing. Fewer dance scenes, more action scenes, and a special effects budget that included explosions. Explosions make everything better. The director borrowed heavily from Robert Rodrigez's "Planet Terror" for go-go dancing camera work.
My wife thinks she lost brain cells on "Ninja Cheerleaders". I think she may be right.
