Samurai Cinema

by Miles Wilkerson

Sooooooo….. I LOVE SAMURAI MOVIES. Always have. I mean, how could you not?!!??! Anyways, these are just a few I came up with off the top of my head. They are not in any particular order. I would add the entirety of the Lone Wolf and Cub series but for some mysterious (sacrilegious) reason they are not available to choose on this site. I threw “Ghost Dog” in there because it’s the only contemporary samurai film that that gives the genre any justice, and it kicks ass.
