    Great movie. But still not as good as the original, The Seven Samurai.

    Although I did have one major gripe about The Seven Samurai. It was in black and white and everybody wore white robes/clothes. They also had white subtitles. The subtitles were nearly impossible to read many times because of white text on white background. I'm sure that's more the fault of the DVD company that put it on DVD (or VHS, I forget which format I watched it on)....not the fault of the original film.

    I figured you would also reference the other meaning of the thread title with your love of music.
    (I loved both movies, but the Seven Samurai was more difficult to watch)

    I really enjoyed M7 and when 7S came on cable a year ago, I made sure to watch it. It probably would have been much more difficult to follow if I hadn't already known the outline of the story and the characters.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    There have been several different subtitled editions of Seven Samurai. The one that was done back in the 80s or earlier left much to be desired.

    I have the criterion DVD and it is much crisper overall, with different translations in spots as well, which clarify and enrich meaning of the script. I would love to see it with yellow subtitles, tho.

    Seven Samurai is one film that I yearn to see in glorious color while loving it in B&W as well.....

    I know, i know...

    not the whole film - but specifically the scenes after the samurai settle in, and Kambei is surveying the layout for their defense. Especially when he and Gorobei walk off and Katsushiro is laying in those flowers....looking up at the trees....I would love to morph that scene into color for just a moment. Ditto when Kyuzo is boinging a flower while waiting by the horses to kill the advance scouts....

    yes. I guess I get greedy and want the whole shebang spoon fed to me sometimes.

    This could be a whole 'nother thread but SS must be the movie I have most watched the most times. Never get tired of it.....

    GASP!!

    I would encourage you to seek out some of their stuff now. Specifically, London Calling(the album) and Sandinista. Heck when Combat Rock came out in the mid '80s I thought they were selling out. Now I listen to it and realize how good the album is.

    They liked to mix up their rhythms and were the first "white" band to embrace rap, calypso, and reggae. The Magnificent Seven (on Sandinista) was a "rap" song in 1980! When they came to NYC in 1981 (I think that was the year) they had Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five as their opening act!

    Pgoat & all -

    Have you watched any of Kurosawa's other work?

    Kagemusha, Ran, Rashoman, The Hidden Fortress, or some others?

    there was a great appearance on Tom Snyder's show when sandinista came out. Interview, but also they did Mag Sven and Radio Clash....I am sure YT has them - go thee now and enjoy.

    Odd, because the version I have has the subs in yellow and set in the bottom black bar of the letterbox format.
