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!
