Seven Samurai
Very good movie. A bit long, yes. I had to drag it out for two days, but well worth the time. I must say that watching these old samurai movies is very different from the new ones - these have plot, and good cinematography. It is a high quality film. Something I can't say about a lot of other films I recently watched. The ending, by the way, when the happy surviours danse to the music, really reminded me of the new Zatoichi ending (tap dancing) - looks almost the same. No big revelations though - just a philosophical conclusion. Highly recommend the film to anyone who wants three hours of good japanese cinematorgraphy.

Now I go back to Wermlands. Someone asked me, why was I still working, after I got my award. My response was - "What kind of a best worker would I be, if I'd stop working the day I got a certificate?" Besides, tonight I will probably be working as a bouncer (vakt). Cool, eh?


And for the kicks: a MEME!

I'm glad you liked it. It is still one of my absolutely favorite films. Seriously one of Kurosawa's best. The other highly acclaimed one is Ran. Maybe I'll go rent that while my internet is out.

See that one and tell me how it was.

One thought I had about the SS - all the Samurai that died died a "bad" death - from guns. No peasants were gunned to death and no samurai was touched by a sword/arrow/spear. As if the samurai died because their style was proven inferior by technology.

I wouldn't quite say inferior...but the times were changing.

The memory of the details of the movie is quite vague because I saw it two years ago in a theater while quite sick after a meeting, thus struggling to keep down the sniffles from my runny nose, and not knowing that it lasted until midnight so I was totally shocked by the intermission.

We shall have to have a Kurosawa drinking session and discussion in April.

We will!
Just imagine how much sake we can drink while watching the Seven Samurai! Or watching Bodyguard, taking a shot at every kill. :)
Better yet to do this shot per kill thing for a movie we never saw. :)

We are sure as hell not doing that for Ran or Throne of Blood, those two are war movies. We would have to guzzle down the whole bottle in the first thirty minutes or so. Oh yeah, I don't do sake shots. I'll shoot umeshu though.

Привет! После часу размышлений и вычислений, ты можешь быть только Аней А. Ибо на ИДС110 я общался только с ней, Джесской и Дарием и ты уж никак не можешь быть ни Джессикой ни Дарием. Прав я?

Хочешь быть петалом - легко. Френди меня, и сообщай кто ты. (Хотя, я вроде как уже догадался). :))

Становлюсь петалом, добавляю во френды.
Бонзай!

Всё, дал тебе доступ. Можешь теперь мотать назад (где-то на август) и читать чем я занимался весь семестр. :)
