I don't know about Ran, I tried to watch it again a few years ago, and just gave up. I found it too dull to continue. But I went through about eight years of Samurai Movie Boredom, so maybe I could watch it now and actually be entertained.

Hey, I missed that, but ain't that the one that guest stars Nobunaga?

Musashi vs the Soul Sucking Ghoul


Sorry ta correct ya, but that should be "Musahsi AND the Soul Sucking Ghoul". Musashi was the S.S. Ghoul's avatar in the film.

Awwwww, thanks, Benji! I'd heard you and the rest of the guys were gettin' kinda bored and were waitin' for somethin' serious like another Abarenbo Gaijin DVD to get excited about. Try to be patient-the deluxe collector's edition Season 3 DVD boxed set should be out soon, or at least on VHS. One of the bonus features is too kewl-it's an animated feature with the Brickster takin' on a certain two sword wearin', hakama soilin', talkin' rarebit and his master, the corpulent kaiju Hagfat!

And by the way, fer all of youse that was clamourin' fer the return of the Brickster's Bouncin' Beach Babe...now that I found a site that don't charge $50 yearly to host one .gif, she's BACK!!!!!!!

A true Masterpiece is that Female Ninja's Classic where Oichi and his buds get a helping hand courtesy of exploding vagina bubble's and lethal spurts of breast milk that burn the bad guy like acid .

Now that is a true gem ,seriously where do they come up with this stuff .

This is the best Samurai Film site ,I do not think the others have a clue as to what a Taiga Drama is not to mention the Shogatsu Specials .

Again it is a matter of personal taste of course Vagina Bubbles win hands down over some fat old former Kabuki actor fighting for justice with a plastic sword or spear
"Want justice baby we got acid tinged breast milk and than some so beat that !".

Haven't seen 13 Assassins, but I would probably be entertained. That said, I would probably not watch it over and over and over. That's not an indictment of the movie, it's a matter of personal taste and interest.


I've seen it four times so far, and I'm ready to watch it again, so make your proclamations after you see it. Or go put on a sweatervest with Obenjo and debate camera angles!


Where'd you get that photo? Who are those people?

I think it's A. J. Bryant and Himiko at a book signing for the recent book he helped edit.

It's a photo taken at the 2011 Sweatervest Hipster Cinema Festival - they only showed black and white Japanese films made prior to 1960 that were previously unreleased in the west except by grey marketeers. The cinema festival motto is "If You've Heard of It, We Hate It." And if you refer to a movie as anything other than "A piece of cinema" they immediately revoke your day pass.

Then they obviously must have screened some McBurly classics! Very Happy

I just saw Samurai Assassin (Which is a fictionalized version of Sakuradamongai no hen), and even though Mifune was a little past his prime for the particular character he was playing, it was pretty good, and was structured so much better than the new Sakuradamongai no hen. They established the situation and all of the characters, and then the Sakuradamongai incident was the very last scene. Which is how it should be.

I really enjoyed Samurai Assassin. I thought Mifune did a great job in this role.

Um, well..

**BEWARE SPOILER ALERT**

Mifune's character is the son of Ii Naosuke. Ii Naosuke died at age 45. Mifune the actor was age 45 when playing this character. Not only that, but even being generous with his age, in the context of the movie, it would mean that he was a ronin for at least 13 years, if not up to 20, which doesn't make sense story wise. He should have been about age 30 in the context of the story, at most. Technically he probably should have been closer to 25 to really make sense between the amount of time he spent as a Ronin, and his father being Ii Naosuke.

Forgiving that, I liked the movie. But Mifune looked past his prime by a couple years for this role.

For what it's worth, on my master list of Samurai Films that I've recently started to compile, this one comes in at #12 out of 22 so far.

I read the original novel and it was boring too.
It wasn't really novel but documentary.
The author Yoshimura Akira always do detailed research so I like his books.

I also read his Sanriku Kaigan Otsunami.
I didn't expect the big Tsunami happened there again while I'm alive.
