    Well, *this* was unexpected -- Shout Factory give a blu release to Sam Firstenberg's NINJA III: THE DOMINATION (1984)! It's just your typical tale of an aerobics instructor possessed by the evil spirit of a dying ninja, shot down by police after a golf course assassination. She's now programmed to track and kill his enemies, including the cops who blasted him in the first place. It's up to Sho Kosugi, import ninja, to stop her. Yet another out-of-control '80s Cannon classic, NINJA III has everything you'd every want in a movie: a hairy-backed dude who removes his shirt as often as possible, gratuitous use of V-8 in a sexual manner, flying satanic swords on strings, and, of course, some serious f'n ninja-ing. Top Ten stuff, here -- I can't preorder this fast enough.

    DVD / Blu combo:

    I have some fond memories of seeing this back in the 80's but I don't know how I would react to it now. Of course if it's a good transfer I'll probably pick it up.

    Let's hope they get around to Enter The Ninja and Revenge Of The Ninja too.

    I've never seen Enter the Ninja but both Revenge of the Ninja and Ninja III are the fucking tits.

    This film will be MINE.

    I've got all three on Blu, but will be upgrading my German Blu to the Shout of course.

    Enter the Ninja is actually my least favourite of the three.

    No idea. There was something similar on Synapse's release of Red Scorpion, but that was really just a flash second with a few frames.

    Oh yeah... at least 100 forum pages of bickering and counter arguments, and possibly fruitcake recipes.

    That forum really is bloated shit. And you can't even post a DVDBeaver or DVDTalk review link there without getting your post removed. Too much information that isn't proprietary is a bad thing over there.

    Got an answer on Facebook about the missing blades:

    " we run scratch removal on low, so i don't believe that caused this but we'll look into it."

    Glad it´s not a mistake with the transfer. The Ninja is just TOO fast I guess :D
