“Ninja 3: The Domination” with Todd Levin

More like the “Ninja 3: The Dumb-ination,” Am I right? Conan writer Todd Levin joins me to talk about great, great mess of a movie. We were going to watch some other movie, but Todd emails me that this movie is amazing and he was right!

We take down this Canon Classic!

About the lead actress Lucinda Dickey from IMDB:

Lucinda was par

ninja-iii-598x195

t of the troupe when Solid Gold’s third season began and a short biography of her was included in press materials for the show. However, her stint was very brief — so brief that most Solid Gold fans may not realize she actually danced on the show. Born and raised in Hutchinson, Kansas, Lucinda began dancing at the age of four and went on to major in dance at Kansas State University for two years. As a college student, Lucinda competed in the Miss Kansas pageant, where she won the talent division and finished third runner-up.

Lucinda then moved to Los Angeles and won a dance scholarship with the Dupree Dance Academy. After 10 months of study at Dupree, she auditioned for the movie Grease 2(1982) and won a role as one of the film’s lead dancers. Lucinda also appeared in the movie ninja III: The Domination (1984), where she played a woman possessed by the evil spirit of a ninja assassin. The movie role she is most famous for, however, is that of Kelly (aka Special K) in the 1984 cult film Breakin’ (1984) which also featured Solid Gold dancers Cooley Jackson and Leslie Cook.

Lucinda currently lives in California with her husband, Craig Pilligian (who is co-executive producer of the TV show “Survivor”) and their two children, according to a July 2000 Hutchinson News article.

“Miami Connection” Live! w/ Graham Elwood, Kathleen Wilhoite & Susanna Brisk

Graham Elwood (“Comedy Film Nerds”) & Susanna Brisk (“MILF Code”) proudly resent the cult classic, “Miami Connection.” They join me at the Hollywood Improv Lab for a live show for a very few (select) people.

The great Kathleen Wilhoite covers one of the terrible “songs” from “Miami Connection.” She also sings the song that she did in the movie “RoadHouse.” Yes, that “RoadHouse.” Hear Kathleen spill the beans on the onset drinking and drugging on a previous episode with Joel Stein. 

Back to this episode… Here’s a trailer for the film and part of the original song that Kathleen covers.

"Nail Gun Massacre"

“Nail Gun Massacre”

“Nail Gun Massacre” It’s “Nail Gun Massacre” a very fun slasher film where the killer dishes out bad one liners and nail influenced death. Todd Levin (“Conan”) and Adam Spiegelman (Proudly  Resents) talk about this great bad movie and what the Sklar Brothers would be like as mass murders.

Look out! Nails! These nails will get you just by going in your hands.

Clips of “Nail Gun Massacre” were taken out of the show b/c the NGM people pulled down other sites that played clips. But I was able to get the ending of “Nail Gun Massacre” off youtube. It’s not in English, but it wouldn’t make any more sense if it was.

Here’s Todd Levin talking about Todd Levin. By Todd Levin:
