Man, that really really sucks, his turn in Kill Bill Volume 1 was deserving of a Best Supporting Actor nomination IMO.  I thought he was really really good.

I'll have to watch all of my Chiba DVD's starting tonight in honor of such a legendary career.  Thumbup 

EDIT: whoops, misread the article. He's just retiring from doing action films, not acting all together.   TeddyR

Man, it DOES suck getting old. I'll miss your super-violent martial arts epics Sonny Chiba. I bow before thee.

Now I really have to get my paws on Karate Bullfighter, Karate Bearfighter, and Karate For Life!  TeddyR

A few weeks ago they had Karate Bullfighter, Karate Bear Fighter, and Karate for Life! on IFC.  I watched parts of each but I had trouble sitting that day, so I didn't watch all of the movies combined just bits and pieces.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
