Does anyone else like the Zatoichi films? I started watching them a couple years ago when IFC started showing them on saturdays. They're pretty good, and I prefer the ones that were made between 1962-1989 and starred Shintarō Katsu as Zatoichi. The 2003 film was okay, but it seemed like the director just wanted to toss on as much gore as possible.

Technically, the 2003 movie was the crap. It was too obvious that all the dicing, slicing, stabbing and blood-splashing was CG.
I liked the acting and the story though.

I saw one of the movies on TV, or it was an episode, or one of the many movies... arg! I saw one piece of it and I thought it was rather good, and it wasn't the 2003 movie I don't think since it was older looking. I have been kicking around picking it up, but so far I haven't been willing to spend the money on it :(

If there was no blond Kitano Takeshi in there, it was an older movie.
If there was no dancing scene in the end, it was an older movie, too.
:D

Yeah, it does get pretty expensive if you want to collect the movies. Do you have the independent film channel? They usually show one on saturday, along with other Japanese classics.
