I have that too actually lol i just didn't list it

A recommendation?

Shogun Assassin. A million times over Shogun Assassin. Quite possibly one of the goriest and most violent and absolutely brilliant films I've ever seen. It's loosely based off the old Lone Wold & Cub manga. It's had several releases over the years on DVD, so you should be able to find it easily enough. Even the dubbed version is great, which is so rare.

Wow, there isn't a single one you're looking for that was released before 2006. Anyways. I'm sure an American-released copy [w/ subtitles and possible dub] of these films is just around the corner. My guess is that at least one of them will find release through Dragon Dynasty, since their sole purpose is to bring classic and contemporary Asian cinema to the States. If I had to pick which one, it'd probably be The Warlords, since they [and everyone, it seems] loves Jet Li.

are there any movies of this type that you can recommend for me?

i just found Battle of Whits, Sword in Moon, and Bichunmoo, on ebay. (they're probably bootlegs but what are you gonna do I guess i'll find out when i get them. :() I haven't seen any of those yet but they sound pretty decent

I have these movies already and probably some more that i can't find....,

Blood Of The Samurai, 2001

Samurai banners, 1969

Chushingura, 1962

Samurai Rebellion

Samurai Saga

Butterfly Sword, 1993 didn't really like it

Kagemusha, 1980

Gate of Hell didn't really like it

Hara-Kiri

Red Shadow

Samurai Fiction

Rashomon

Zatoichi Vs Yojimbo

The Twilight Samurai, 2002

Incident At Blood Pass

Samurai Gold Seekers 1965

Seven samurai

Sanjuro

Yojimbo

The Hidden Fortress

Shogun's Ninja

Samurai 1

Samurai 2

Samurai 3

pretty much all the zatoichi movies

The hidden Blade

Samurai Assasin

Bunch of shiniobi movies that aren't that great

Warriors of heaven and Earth

The trail of Blood

Sword of the Beast

Goyokin

Versus

plus the ones i mentioned above

i also think that the three kingdom movie would come around to the states seeing as the characters are in those dynasty warriors and romance of the three kingdoms games. Is there a better movie based on those books/book?

I liked the special editions

It made Star Wars feel new again

As for A New Hope not the strongest

I like Empire better but Jedi was the weekest of the three

Oh, I know Lucas has admitted to his "influences" in the past. And you're right. Who would know except people who are interested in those kinds of films? I'm not adverse to film-makers rehashing plots from older films to create new ones. I just don't care for it when people don't know real creativity from heavy borrowing. Now, don't get me wrong. I loved the original Star Wars trilogy. Lucas obviously put a lot of time and effort into creating those movies, but I'm not so sure he's deserving of all the obsessive fan-worshipping that he receives.

Let's keep in mind that he only wrote and directed the first, which wasn't the strongest of the originals. And while he did have creative input in the two following, he didn't even write the actual screenplays. Nevermind the mess he made of them later when he released the Special Editions.

Wheeljack35 - 2008-08-21 @ 12:24 am

Yes but said that he did it years ago in a Star Wars documentary

Plus who would of known besides people that are into Japanese movies or culture

KillyourIdols - 2008-08-21 @ 12:07 am

Oh, and since it was mentioned-- yes, the plot of Star Wars: A New Hope is ripped directly fromThe Hidden Fortress. Same as another Kurosawa film, Yojimbo, was re-made into Sergio Leone's classic "spaghetti western", A Fistful of Dollars.

I only mention the both because Lucas swiped from Leone's westerns as much as [if not more so] than Kurosawa.

Yeah, Jet Li is in, like, every other movie! :D
