Tonight only: Cheap samurai movie rentals at Video Americain

Poor taste be damned: Until 10 p.m. tonight, Video Americain in Charles Village is renting all samurai flicks for a mere $2. This is, of course, a timely response to the burglar who was killed by a samurai sword-welding Johns Hopkins student early this morning.

Thanks to jmgiordano for the tip.

Poor taste, or just hilarious? I say both.

Wishing peace to the JHU Student. Taking a life will be with him forever.

Must also include Revenge of the Nerds.

Sweet!!! I tell u what..hands free headsets should be popular soon.

Saw this tweet from Bad Decisions:
Highlander marathon tomorrow. Completely unrelated to anything.

If I lived in Baltimore, I totally would have rented a movie from this store because of their great promotion!!!! LOL!

i wonder if that applies to all the "Highlander" films. Johns Hopkins University, there can be only one....

How do you weld your sword to a"burglar"?
