Hey there. I love me some samurai films. As many of you know, I love the art of the samurai (I even have my own sword) and just can't get enough of these bad ass shows like Afro Samurai and Rurouni Kenshin. There also have been some great samurai films, such as The Last Samurai (not a Tom Cruise fan but this movie is pretty bad ass) and Kill Bill. I also thought it was great that a pioneer of great Japanese samurai films, Sonny Chiba, even made an appearance in Kill Bill.
Kill Bill is a great story. My wife and I even dressed up as Beatrix and a Crazy 8 samurai for Halloween one year. Tarantino's version of "The Bride" had to span 2 whole films. I'm not complaining, since I thought it was great, but unless you got nothing to do during a Saturday afternoon, it's hard to find the time to sit on your couch and watch 4 hours of samurai action. Fear not, my friends! These people decided to do something about it! While sitting around one afternoon, with nothing better to do, they found a way to cut down those 4 hours to a mere minute! Don't believe me? Check it out!
Man, that was great! lol They even did it in chronological order and not the way portrayed in the film! I guess when you got a minute, you can't be jumping back and forth. The best part? The slo-mo action when Kiddo slices O-Ren Ishii. Classic! Later!
