Video Marketplace Weekly: Pirates & ninjas edition

One of the greatest rivalries known to man has taken its battle to the U.S. Video Marketplace this week, where each group is fighting, kicking and clawing to the death for XBVM supremacy. We're of course talking about the legendary pirates versus ninjas rivalry where new XBVM release Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest will represent the pirates team and the classic (and free) rental Ninja Hunter will represent team ninja. Who will win? We aren't sure, but whatever the outcome is we all should take comfort in knowing that ninjas are way cooler than those smelly pirates. Ninja kick or pirate peg leg kick towards the break for a complete list of this week's new movie releases. High-yarrr!
