Showdown in Little Tokyo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ohhhh myyyyyyyyyyy yessssss. Shut up other things on your screen. You need to head to Little Tokyo for Showdown in Little Tokyo. A 90's buddy cop movie version of Little Tokyo filmed in the real Little Tokyo. With an utterly ridiculous plot about Yakuza's taking over Little Tokyo and super cocaine. Did I mention it's starring Dolph Lundgren and Tia Carrere, who has a nude body double in the film. The best part has to be it being filmed in Little Tokyo, which is apparently much bigger in the movie instead of the two blocks it takes up in reality. The finale is set at the Grand Parade that just happen a week ago in Little Tokyo.

My favorite line from the film, "Now let's go back and eat sushi off a naked lady!"
