Bunraku - 8.5/10
This one was completely off my radar and I watched it on a whim via Netflix this morning. Really glad I did. Fantastic yet simple set and costume design, great characters, narration that reminds me a bit of Bastion...
It's a post apocalyptic shoot em up movie (sort of). Basically the idea behind it is that the world banned guns completely so now we're back ot sword fights. Pretty legit if you ask me.
Character development is a bit poor, but I think it was intentional. It's meant to be a 'stranger' spaghetti western kind of movie. Soundtrack is alright, too. Woody Harrleson has his moments. Ron Perlman is as awesome as ever.
Oh, and for any Japanese music nerds, Gackt is in it.
EDIT: Thinking on it a bit more it also reminds me of Afro Samurai.
