43/78 of Keeping Up with the Boxes: January-February 2018
Not even in my wildest dreams I could have anticipated Seven Samurai to be THIS good.
The characters are well-rounded, compelling, full of depth, and fun to watch.
The acting is superb.
The camerawork is stellar, beautiful, and emotional.
The soundtrack is terrific, and the sound on-par with today's movies.
The sets and costumes are excellent.
The direction is superb.
The action is exciting and tense.
The ending is memorable and inpactful.
Damn, what a true masterpiece this is. The American remakes can only wish to be half as great as this!
