I love Tarantino movies. But I’ve always been told that he steals everything from other films, samurai and western flicks, and mashes all the best parts together. I don’t have a problem with that but if you really get into it with film snobs that’s how they discount his work. But who cares, right? I digress.
I’ve been in search of films that lived up to his brand of awesomeness and have always been a little disappointed. Not that they weren’t great, but Tarantino takes all the best stuff and mashes it into one awesome cacophony, you know, like a film turducken. Well I’ve finally found something that has lived up to that insanity. Lone Wolf and Cub! It’s a Japanese series from the 70’s and it is pure gory artistic awesome. Severed limbs praying blood everywhere. Superhuman feats of sword fighting badassery. And they look great. I just watched Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance. Netflix’s got em. You NEED to be watching these. Your welcome.
