    Default Samurai Movies

    there are some great samurai movies out there besides Lone wolf and Cub, and 7 Samurai. im a big fan of the genre and wanted to put the word out on some of my favorites and hopefully get put onto some new ones.

    the "Twilight Samurai"(2002) a low-ranking samurai, leads a life without glory as a bureaucrat in the mid-XIX century Japan. A widower, he has charge of two daughters (whom he adores) and a senile mother; he must therefore work in the fields and accept piecework to make ends meet. New prospects seem to open up when Tomoe, his long-time love, divorces a brutal husband. However, even as the Japanese feudal system is unraveling, Seibei remains bound by the code of honour of the samurai and by his own sense of social precedences. The consequences are cruel when the clan forces him on an assassination that is his only hope to get his family out of destitution.


    "The Yagyu Conspiracy"(1978) Following the death of the second Tokugawa shogun, it is revealed that he was poisoned by retainers of his son Iemitsu in hopes of gaining him the shogunate despite the stammer and birthmark which undermine his respect. Iemitsu and his brother Tadanaga become bitter rivals for the shogunate, and the land is split into factions, eventually erupting into warfare. Iemitsu's mentor, his fencing instructor Yagyu, is fixated upon securing Iemitsu the shogunate and ends up betraying everyone, even his own family, in pursuit of the goal. with Sonny Chiba as Yagyu Jubei.


    these are two great movies anyone reccomend any others??

    i like Azumi it was a good flick, great action and innovative camera work. i heard they made a sequal, i wonder how it stands up to the original.

    "when the last sword is drawn" is another well detailed period piece about the fall of samurai society, and the last fights between the shogun and the emperor.

    sorry duke most of these movies are either obscure or a lil older, makes it hard to find video links for them. your best bet is to try downloading a torrent of them on mininova.com. PEACE

    ^ its madddd expensive but its not really worth the 60$
    or whatever its priced at
    i say download it
    afterall its a movie u might watch 2x

    other movies i would watch as kid has toshiro mifune in them (the crazy samurai dude in 7 samurai)
    hes pretty much the main man for samurai flicks

    i like throne of blood its in black and white...its pretty long but its cool to watch

    other flicks i recommend with mifune in it

    samurai assasin, shoguns samurai, the bushido blade, zatoichi meets yojimbo, samurai rebellion, bandits vs samurai squadron, samurai saga, hidden fortress, .............i dunno..sword of dooom was pretty good

    most of those titles are easy to find
    my pops has them on vhs...i gotta find a way to transfer them onto dvd or my cpu
