Don't let the title of this film fool you; instead of a singing Western, this 2001 action flick is an installment of a cult anime franchise that follows four bounty hunters in an urban center that's part Manhattan, part Tokyoon Mars, in 2071. Cowboy Bebop is "part film noir, part spaghetti Western and part HK actioner," set to a jazzy score by Japanese composer Yoko Kanno. Afterward, stick around for the 2010 anime film Trigun: Badlands Rumble a spin-off of the TV series.
