    1. Guys, I see you took my advice. Have you enjoyed them as well ? You’d be surprised at just how many of the ZATOICHI films I have myself !!! I think they’re AWESOME !!
      Thank you for being kind enough to bring them to your audience. BTW, I spent 16 years swordfighting. Just about anything I get my hands on is now a deadly weapon.
      Since I’m tired, it’s now time for me to get some sleep.

      1. Kevin, If you think these are good, and, of course they are, you might see if you can obtain, 1.YOJIMBO,
        2. RAN, 3. KAGEMUSHA, 4. THE SEVEN SAMURAI,
        5. BAIAN, THE ASSASSIN, 6. THE HIDDEN FORTRESS,
        7. SHOGUN ASSASSIN or, known by it’s other name of …
        THE BABY BUGGY FROM HELL.
        All of these movies are well done and, I think you’ll like them. YOJIMBO is gritty and, it’s the movie that ” A FIST FULL OF DOLLARS ” was developed from. RAN and
        KAGEMUSHA are war stories of sweeping epic stature.
        THE SEVEN SAMURAI is an epic tale that the MAGNIFICENT SEVEN was developed from. BAIAN, THE ASSASSIN is about an accupunturist doctor who is also an assassin ! THE HIDDEN FORTRESS is one of the inspirations for STAR WARS. SHOGUN ASSASSIN is all about the Shogun’s executioner who was nearly assassinated by the Shogun’s ninja because of what he knows. So, he and his young son become wanderers.
        You can’t go wrong with any of these. — JT —
