    The Secret of the Urn 1966 This was Gosha’s third samurai film and he was to become one of the premier directors of this genre over the next decade. The time of the noble samurai hero was somewhat passé by the mid-60’s

    Revenge (Adauchi) 1964 Imai's Adauchi (AKA Revenge) is surely one of the best samurai films to come out of Toei, a prolific company that didn't seem to mind if it's product devolved into mediocrity, and maybe one of the

    rated: 10 Momotaro Samurai (Freelance Samurai) 1957 I have very little information on this early Kenji Misumi film. If anyone has seen this film and would like to write a brief synopsis, please email me. stef.science@gmail.com. I will put the review

    Broken Sword 1969 Broken Sword (Hiken yaburi, Daiei, 1969) is close remake of Samurai Vendetta from ten years before. A few colorful asides are dropped from Daisuke Ito's script. There are minor revisions in dialogue.

    rated: 10 The Great Duel 1964 The literal translation of the Japanese title is "The Great Killing" and, as you might guess, it delivers in spades. Director Eiichi Kudo (THIRTEEN ASSASSINS) helmed this stark samurai

    Hanzo the Razor: Sword of Justice 1972 Being a pretty big fan of J-pinky exploit films, and other more straight-faced samurai films of this era in Japanese cinema - I had pretty high hopes for the HANZO series, and honestly I gotta say

    Hanzo the Razor: The Snare 1973 When I first saw the Japanese Exploitation highlight "Gôyokiba" aka "Hanzo The Razor - Sword Of Justice" (1972) it became an instant favorite of mine. I was therefore more

    Hanzo the Razor: Who's Got the Gold? 1974 The final chapter in the Hanzo the Razor trilogy provides fitting closure for this entertaining series of samuraisploitation. Inoue replaces Yasuzu Masumura (Blind Beast, Red Angel, Manji) in the
