Oh look... Another Sadako movie... AND IT'S IN 3D!! Sigh...
Gotcha, fam: Sadako 3D 2 (2013) :D
Nah that's ok.... I think I'm gonna go on a Sadako sabbatical for a while. Although I'm sure I'll end up watching that junk at some point.

This is kinda the exact sort of samurai movie I've been wanting to see. Ridiculously bloody and graphic, awesome sword play, fun and exciting action. Totally and ridiculously awesome.

Thanks for hosting!

Which one is/are your favorites in the serie?
The ones I liked most are the ones that are not very action-filled. My favorites were Fight, Zatoichi, Fight (in which Zatoichi is taking a baby to its father) and Zatoichi's Pilgrimage (in which Zatoichi is burdened with a guilty conscience).

Did the final update and double checking (wow, the first time that I didn't have to correct anything). Only for Carmel1379 I'm not sure about the final count, you never posted your announced anime update ;)
Current recommendation: Mandala (1981)

Thanks, Mel - will add to the spreadsheet soon. :thumbsup: Thanks again for hosting; this was a particularly fruitful challenge for me with over half a dozen films added to my 500<400 ballot.

Didn't get around for doing the wee bit of coding for a general list table (with TSPDT etc.) but here's the stats with a bit of a workaround
