I'm still holding out for the official release, but sounds like a deal. I'll be seeing it in the theater Friday.

Heck with it, I can afford it - do you know if this is still good? If so, I'll pick them up.

Yes it is ,Its good to compare both films ,
what the original has to offer is how absorbing is the planning of the attack ,and the 30 min finale is good as well.

So, do you pay the full price and then get a refund? Oh, and do I call it the Groovy Movie section to actually get the discount?

The Smapoichi film actually is great ,It is much closer to a Yoji Yamada type (No not Tora San Finds a Job plus a Duplex with all Mod Cons ) of film than typical Zatoichi Fare .

Also i am really surprised that no U.S. Distributor has picked it up ,Even bigger surprise is Shingo Katori he does an amazing job .

Allegedly he trained for a year and refused to watch any of the Katsu performances claiming that as they could not be bettered (wish he had told Kitano) he avoided them and read the Shimosawa books instead to try and come up with another take on the role.

He should have watched Rutger Hauer in Blind Fury.

The 2-disk set of 13 Assassins comes out in 4 days on amazon.co.jp so I'm going to just buy it there - it is the FULL version, not the version missing 20 minutes they released here. Also just put in an order for Sakurada Mongai no Hen. I'll probably give 13 Assassins my rundown movie review treatment once I get my hands on it for the blog.

Please give" Sakurada Mongai No Hen" a rundown, I have heard nothing but good things about this film ,In fact one person told me "It is the best Samurai Film of the last 20 Years ".

To be fair he was speaking from a Jidai Geki point of view anyone expecting a "13 Assassins" type epic will probably not be very enthused .
