quietearth [Celluloid 06.29.16] action samurai



For those who have not seen THE quintessential samurai flick Shogun Assassin, just stop reading now and go watch it. That said, Lone Wolf and Cub was originally a manga about a samurai pushing his son around in a carriage while seeking revenge. It has two things I love - a high body count and spraying blood. It was made into 6 different films in the 1970s and in 1980 the first two of these was re-cut and dubbed in English.. and they made Shogun Assassin for the American market. Wu-Tang member GZA's first album, Liquid Swords, uses cuts from this film.

Now the below the bar news; Steven Paul, the producer behind the Ghost in the Shell Remake, bought the rights. So you're probably saying why is it going to be a bad remake? Steven Paul is behind such classics as Baby Geniuses and its numerous sequels along with Ghost Rider.

The original movies were uniques and effective. A current remake will suck.
