    I like "Life is Beautiful" (I'm not sure if that was one of your original choices, since a few of your images are not showing up in my viewer for whatever reason).


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Great movie, good choice BF. All of Kurosawa's films are awesome. Yojimbo is another one of my favorites.

    great, great movie.

    Not sure if anyone is familiar with 'Zatoichi', had a run of about 20+ films in the early 60's. Loved these movies, they would air them on IFC on Saturday mornings around 7:30. Story is about a blind massuer who just happens to be a bad arse with a samurai sword. It's not in the same vein as the Kurosawa classics but still one of my favs.

    I just watched 'Fearless' with jet Li. It was awesome. What an interesting story and you know you're watching a great movie when you don't even realize you're reading along.

    With the new wave of remaking Asian horror films "The Grudge", "The Eye", and "Pulse" to name a few, it seems to support that the vast majority of American audiences will always prefer their movies spoken in english as well. Unfortunate because a lot of these kind of remakes tend to water down a good story IMHO.
    One of the best things about some of these aforementioned films G-Scott and I posted about was how even if you had no spoken dialogue or had sub titles you would still not be lost. That's how tight Kurosawa made his films. My dad took me to see "Seven Samurai" years ago because he wanted to see the original version of "The Magnificent Seven" . The original was a masterpiece, as the remake was a good popcorn western.

    I'm uncultured like that. I hate subtitles.
