    this is one of those genre's thats hard to get into unless you know someone with taste. (too many really crappy sam flicks out there) Without someone to watch it with i don't see myself ever becoming a big fan. None of that, however, takes away from the beauty of the Seven Sam. Love that movie. and its prob the only true samurai flick i own. (i dont count the kill bills/electra/tom cruise/stiffler movies)

    Well, without sounding too pretentious, the list that me and Buoy put together is quite good (I actually laughed out-loud at how conceited that came off), and I'd recommend anyone to at least dabble with some of the top ones on both of the respective lists. But really, people in the know for this sort of genre routinely list some of these as some of the "best" in the genre. But I agree, this is a genre (like old Kung-Fu/Hong Kong cinema) that you need a few friends that share the taste to REALLY enjoy, because at their core they are very fun films that should be shared!
