Made by same company as Dragon Ball Z.


Listen to the opening theme, it's score is the same marching music as in DBZ entire series, most particular the Cell Game saga.


It's about a karate championship tournament in Japan 1949, first one after the war, first since the Toto regime banned martial arts study and schools.


Made in 1975 starring Sonny Chiba. I am 7 minutes in and Sonny is in the finals wearing rags from the gutter and a string for a belt against school trained contenders with clean white fighting gee and black belts.


***Spoiler: I have never seen this movie but Sonny is hurting these pro guys really badly and he's too fast for them to even really see let alone defend against. The cinematography might seem cheesy today but I mean these guys were all in 75, this production value for what they had where they were at the time, it's pretty awesome.


I love all Sonny Chiba movies and the ones he inspired (Tarantino also heavily influenced by fung fu movies, Sonny is even in Kill Bill 1 as master swordsmith of legend Hatori Hanzo, a not subtle homage to Quentin's appreciation for Sonny's films.)

Granted I'm old, but it's good.

Ricochet (1991) - it's a cool crime movie with Denzel Washington, Kevin Pollack, Ice-T, and the bad guy is John Lithgow.

Watching Carnival Row, and it's not bad, but it feels kind of like it's going for the Penny Dreadful vibe, but with a focus more on racial tensions than interpersonal struggles. There's also an allusion to a Lovecraft-type monster, so we'll see how that turns out! I also watched the first ep or two of The Black Spot, an English-dubbed French-Canadian show about a dark conspiracy in a weird wilderness town. Again, not really bad, but it didn't really hook me. i would encourage you to check them both out to see if they're your jam or not; they're definitely pleasing from an aesthetic and atmospheric standpoint.
