A classic

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

Princess Yuki Akizuki is to be led through enemy territory, where she may rebuild her kingdom with gold that she has in her caravan. She is assisted by her trusted general, Rokurota Makabe, who insists that she masquerades as a mute farmer. Two minions, Tahei and Matashichi help unknowingly, as they believe they will get a piece of the gold if they help the princess attain her goals.

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (216 movies items)

"11.5 Kurosawa on mielestäni parhaimmillaan silloin, kun hän ohjaa joko syvästi humaania tarinaa elämästä ja kuolemasta tai vaihtoehtoisesti kääntää Shakespearea feodaaliajan Japaniin. Kätketty linnake on kaikin puolin viihdyttävä elokuva, mutta se on liian perinteistä western-vaikutteista seikkailua minun makuuni. Toki tällainenkin konsepti voi toimia moitteettomasti, mutta Kurosawa ei mielestäni taida yhtä hyvin tyylipuhtaita genre-elokuvia, kuin niiden sekoituksia. Pituutta o"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: April (28 movies items)

"First viewing - April 2nd Since I'm underwhelmed lately with my options on Netflix I figured I'd head to the library to see what I could find. As luck would had it I had to make myself stop before I brought home more than I can get watched in a single week. Limiting myself to 3 seems manageable enough. Between household chores I watched The Hidden Fortress since it's the longest of the films I chose. It doesn't feel as long as it is, however, thanks to pacing that suits the story and characte"

2017: Films I've Watched in February (22 movies items)

"First Watched 2/1/2017 As you know I am a sucker for Akira Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune flicks XD so know that going in! They say this is one of the main films that created the spark that would become Star Wars (1977) I can see some of those parallels. Although, R2 and C3PO get more laughs then our two comedic reliefs here XD (they can really be bastards sometimes) however, while they may be hit or miss in terms of comedy when they hit it is pretty funny and the story itself is fun and engaging"
