Orgasm Ninja Germ Z Inc 2 – Electric Boogaloo

Germ Z, Orgasm Inc., and Ninja 2 are currently available on instant Netflix

Germ Z

 

Germ Z (2013) – Not rated

A meteor knocks a satellite to Earth near a small town, infecting military responders and residents with a germ that turns them into cannibals.

I hate to say it but there’s not much to say here. This is a competently done very low budget film. Unfortunately it apes George Romero’s The Crazies far more than The Crazies remake did. There is the problem. The Crazies remake is fantastic, updating the original and significantly improving on it. Germ Z not only does not improve on the Romero film, it doesn’t match it. Maybe you’ll enjoy it if you haven’t seen either version of The Crazies or any of the [REC] films or the American remake Quarantine…

Orgasm, Inc.

Orgasm Inc. (2009) – Not rated

Orgasm Inc. is a funny and sobering look inside “big pharma” and the marketing campaigns associated with a pill for female sexual dysfunction.”

As long as you aren’t offended by frank talk of female sexuality, I highly recommend this revealing look into horrific pharmaceutical practices. Orgasm has a lot of humor to offset its damning indictment of the pharma industry.

Ninja 2

 

Ninja 2 (2013) – Rated R

When his pregnant wife is savagely murdered, martial arts master Casey Bowman seeks retribution against the brutal drug lord behind the killing.”

Well I think you know whether you want to watch this movie or not. If you enjoyed Scott Adkins kicking, punching, and slicing his way through Ninja, then you will enjoy this movie. There is the usual rationale for the violence and there is plenty of martial arts on display here. Scott Adkins may not be a great thespian but he is a wonderful martial arts performer.
