Ninjutsu, the art of the ninja, is an ancient, closely guarded tradition of stealth, martial arts and assassination that is only taught to the most skilled of Japanese warriors… and pretty much any white dude who happens to be in the neighborhood. Seriously, it’s like ninjas have their own version of Affirmative…
I don’t know what he expected would happen, but it’s exactly what he deserves.
At a tiny shop in the old downtown of Tokyo, you can see an art form that almost died out—and eat it, too. The craftspeople at Amezaiku Yoshihara make intricate candy creatures by hand as you watch, forming sugary starch into delicate legs, wings, and ears in just the couple of minutes before the candy hardens.
HBO's TV series of Westworld is expected to push the envelope in all kinds of ways... but it will never be able to match the "WTF, guys" insanity of this dream sequence from the sequel, Futureworld. Yul Brynner makes a cameo as the sexypants gunslinger, shooting bondage ninjas and then lassooing Blythe Danner.

"Ninjas" and "Kentucky" are two nouns that very rarely manage to show up in the same sentence. But all that's about to change when the first indoor throwing star range opens in the Bluegrass State this coming spring.
The way of the ninja requires massive sacrifices, and samurai must live by the exacting code of Bushido. Usually, pop culture depicts ninjas and samurai as stoic men — but here are 10 amazing women who rose to the challenge.
Apparently CinemaCon was entitled to see a brand-new trailer for The Wolverine. Some kind soul put it on the Internet to share with the rest of us, and I'm glad he or she did because holy shit this movie looks awesome.
There isn't really any other way to describe this delightful, surreal music video that is like a cross between Adventure Time and a 1990s club kid ecstasy flashback.
One of the first G.I. Joe movie's (many, many) problems was that the best fight scene in the movie was between two 10-year-olds. While the Joes and Cobras were dicking around, little Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow beat the shit out of each other, and now it looks like their adult selves are ready for a rematch just as…
In the battle between kittens and tiny sock stealing Ninjas we all come out winners. This music video "Wildstyle" by Savant uses the latest technology to what it would look like if tiny thieves were adorably batted to death by kittens. Death by cuteness!
It's about time that ninjas did something for charity, and that's why the Cobra 1st Legion was formed. The group is full of G.I.

Now that they've converted the film to 3-D and (reportedly) increased its Channing Tatum levels, Paramount needs to remind people that the G.I. Joe movie sequel Retaliation is actually coming out on March 29th (unless they decide to postpone it again at the last second). Step one: 1) this new trailer, full of new…
I'm not entirely sure what film this is from, but judging from the flaming sai, we're dealing with a duel from the oeuvre of famed martial arts director Godfrey Ho (more Ho-ness here). Fire extinguisher nunchaku, flamethrower sai, sparkler shoes — according to CDT Crew, we are indeed witnessing the "ultimate ninja…
