The Golden Ninja Podcast 2: Diamond Ninja Force & Ninja Commandments

tgnp2

For this series, we aim to go through the different phases at IFD, from the phase were ninjas were popular, to ones where they tried out kickboxing tint to their cut and paste movies and created their own superhero etc but for episode 2 we’ll stay in ninja territory to give you all yet another aural examination of cut and paste ninja action fun. Fun that is enhanced by the fact that paired up with the IFD footage are genres hardly associated with ninja action: horror and melodrama. So therefore we are discussing Diamond Ninja Force and Ninja Commandments for this episode. With Kenny B and Ed Glaser, the owner and president of Neon Harbour and director of Ninja The Mission Force.
