The '86 Byakkotai was still the best one, IMO; gettable subbed these days from the usual sources.

However, must say the 2013 Taiga's Katamori is the best cast of all movies so far in which he appea ...

That's actually OK with me because that's a pretty obscure part of the history, the scenery up there is incredible, and I didn't know Yae's family got caught up in that trek.

Wow, he must have been having an off day; but I suspect the film's budget may have been a bigger factor. Particularly in contrast to the current Taiga, everything was just so. . . fake!

I've got it and thought it was just super--ditto what you said about how beautifully shot it was, to the point it surprised me there wasn't a lot more "buzz" about it.

Highly recommended!

Well it depends on the viewer, whether it is boring or not.

Here's a website that shows the actors and which historical people they portray.

Casting for the new "Byakkotai" looks good--I like that Hijikata seems to be a real ruffian! Also, appears they explore in more depth the relationship between Saigo Tanomo and Katamori.

That's a surprise--the 2007 remake of Byakkotai has to still be pretty fresh in people's minds. That one was a little heavy on the saccharine sentimentality for my taste.

What was the name of the movie (probably 80's, guessing) where a madman goes on a katana rampage on the bullet train? It had like a one-word title but I can't remember it . . . anyone know?
