Reminds me of The Shadowless Sword. Going just by the trailer, Blades of Blood looks like it might be better. Koreans sure do kick some ass with swords, don't they?
That one's on the fantasy/mythical martial arts breed yeah? Blades of Blood feels more believable. and set in historical past. The story line of BoB is typical of Asian feudal war movies, with its own little variation here and there to keep things interesting. The costume and cinematography is beautiful and the fight sequences are not bad. Has the typical qualities of successful (not incredible) clan war movie.
Downloaded 127 Hours, Hereafter, and The Fighter, burning them onto DVD right now. Probably going to watch them in the next few days. Last great film I watched was The Godfather Part II. The world was robbed of John Cazale. I wondered why he didn't do many films, found out he died of bone cancer.
