Chambara is the word for the sound two Samurai swords make when the clash together. These films are mostly Samaria movies but some are general martial arts grindhouse films. Several star the great Sonny Chiba.

For what I know, not all of these films are chambaras. First: Not all the films with samurai belong to the chambara (or chanbara) genre but to be a chambara, a film must depict samurai. And not all martial artists are samurai.

Second: Chambara is a sub-genre of jidai-geki which means a period drama usually (although not always) happening in the edo period. So real grindhouse samurai films would not include, for example, films homaging them like Kill Bill and Ghost Dog. And certainly not The Last Samurai.

Third: Most of the chambaras were made in the '70s and have an exploitative feel in them. Arthouse film like Ghost Dog would never be shown in a grindhouse theatre.

So, I'm not saying this isn't a good idea for a list (it is), but a very misleading title since some of these films are not chambaras.
