Nostalgia??? How about having Michael Mann produce it and Jan Hammer do the music? We can get that "Miami Vice" feel in Tokyo.

Re: O Sensei: The Movie!!

Sokaku Takeda should be played by that guy who was "Sho Nuff" in The Last Dragon.

"Am I the meanest?!"
"Sho 'nuff!"
"Am I the prettiest?"
"Sho 'nuff!"
"Am I the baddest mo-fo low down 'round this town?"

...and his hands should glow.

Yeaaaahhh.

hahaha

only if 0-sensei gets to wear shoulder pads and a sweet pastel-coloured hakama.

0-sensei walking around the neon-lit shinjuku with jan hammer in the background...talk about a time warp!

Sorry guys, it's already been done.

"The Power of Aikido", starring Sonny Chiba! You can't get weirder than that.

http://cgi.ebay.com/The-POWER-OF-AIK...QQcmdZViewItem
An action movie that illustrates the struggle of Morihei Ueshiba who was born in a farming family in Wakayama (an area in Japan) on his way of pursuing the heart of martial arts until he finally created his own well-polished martial arts Aikido in which he included the strengths of other martial arts such as old-style Judo, Kendo, and spearmanship. It was the first time that Shinichi Chiba’s younger brother Jiro takes the leading role in a movie.

Couldn't resist, just ordered it

Well I just wrote a big review of this, but when I went to preview it,
Aikiweb came back and asked me to log in again, erasing the last half an hour of writing

Don't have time to retype it now, so will try and do it again later.
