Welcome to Coolasscinema.com! This is a site dedicated to the propagation of strange and exciting cinema (and television) from all over the world as well as America's own grand tradition of exploitation cinema classics. From the front (and back) seats of drive in's across the nation, to the sleaze pit theaters of New York's famed 42nd street, to the comforts of home watching fantastic cinema on the Late Show, remember those classic (and sometimes classless) films of old and even discover some new ones.
Assorted Bits & Pieces: The Winners of THE LAST SAMURAI DVD Giveaway contests!
Well, the three week long DVD giveaway of three copies of Kenji Misumi's three hour epic, THE LAST SAMURAI (1974) has come to a close.
Congratulations to Tyler Martin of Pennsylvania for winning the third and final copy to give away. The three winners are listed below (and their blog links where applicable) as well as links to purchase the DVD should you be interested.
A huge thanks to Neptune Media for providing the discs and also for putting out a respectable release of Misumi's last film. Hopefully this will lead to further releases of classic, or obscure cult film titles of various genres in Japanese cinema!

I've been a huge movie buff since childhood catching old horror and monster flicks on Shock Theater and kung fu movies at the drive-in during the late 70's and early 80's. I've had a long time fascination with, and appreciate all genres of fantastic cinema, good and bad. One fans cheese is another fans juicy steak. I like both equally and seldom find a film I truly dislike as I will find something of interest in just about anything. The bulk of the films or tv series' seen here are mostly from my childhood, or films I own in what has become an Amazing Colossal DVD collection.
