Ahh, the 80s, where a movie titled "Ninja 3: The Domination", a ripoff of the exorcist and other 80s ninja movies, is one of the best grossing films of the year. 

I'd give it a 7/10, but if judged by the opening 10 minutes, a 10/10.

Ninja 3 had a theatrical release?  I would never have guessed;  always thought that was as direct-to-video as you could possibly get.  Very entertaining movie though, for all the wrong reasons  BounceGiggle

Razorback is a favorite of mine, been meaning to pick it up on DVD one of these days.

I've seen 8 of those listed here. Recall how hugely popular Gremlins was at the time. I actually owned the novelization of that as a kid. Lots of pretty solid, imaginative and fun little films what with Dreamscape, C.H.U.D. and Night of the Comet.
