I can’t believe I haven’t seen any movies directed by Akira Kurosawa for such a long time. A few years ago, I was doing a good job and ended up watching 13 of his movies but, by now, it has been almost 10 years since I saw another one of his movies. It is a real shame but maybe I will pick it up again later on. Anyway, this flick is probably one of his most famous ones and therefore I was real... read more

“I can’t believe I haven’t seen any movies directed by Akira Kurosawa for such a long time. A few years ago, I was doing a good job and ended up watching 13 of his movies but, by now, it has been almost 10 years since I saw another one of his movies. It is a real shame but maybe I will pick it up again later on. Anyway, this flick is probably one of his most famous ones and therefore I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, it was a huge inspiration for Georges Lucas before creating ‘Star Wars’ as R2-D2 and C-3PO were pretty much copied on Tahei and Matashichi. Apparently, Kurosawa wanted this time to make something more commercial and accessible after making some artistic features like ‘Rashomon’, and indeed, in box-office terms, it was one of his most successful films at th” read more

"Circa 1500 - 1573, the Sengoku Warring States Period. The Sengoku warring states period was an era of social upheaval and almost 100 years of constant civil war. It has been a popular historical source for Japanese Samurai film (jidaigeki).The Hidden Fortress is considered to be one of the primary influences for Star Wars. "

My top list for samurai movies (25 movies items)

"Komppaan paria ihmistä toteamalla, että ihanpa perushyvää ja nopeasti etenevää seikkailua, mutta siinäpä se. Toshiro Mifune vetää tavallisen roolinsa ja yhteydet Tähtien sotaan toki ovat olemassa, mutteivät mielestäni minään jättimäisinä. Monen monituiset Hollywoodin viihdyttäjäthän Kätketty linnake mennen tullen pesettää."
