but... Blockbuster gave me a shiny gold card because I rent 120-150 movies a year... I thought that counted me as a fan :?

True as far as it goes, but I'm a big movie fan and if those movies are on the same level as Seven Samurai, it's unusual that I've never heard of them.


You never saw those movies and you call yourself a movie fan ?
For Shame ! :D
Anyhow, Kurosawa and Hitchcock are so different and awesome I would no know how to compare them.
But I DO know that I'd rather watch a Kurosawa film than a Hitchcock one if I had to make a choice.
What I want to watch now is Kumonosu jô (aka Throne of Blood, aka Macbeth). Toshirô Mifune is so brilliant in that film. :worship:

Has anyone pointed out that without Kurosawa's Yojimbo there would be no Spaghetti Westerns and no Clint Eastwood and without Kurosawa's Seven Samurai there would be no Magnificent Seven.

I do like Tim Burton's films though...my favourite one is Ed Wood.

I kinda pointed it out, but it kinda got lost in the mess. I mention Magnificent Seven, and I described the rest of them as incredibly influential. Does that count?

Tim Burton is my favorite director, actually. His movies are very dark and unique, and I love that about his movies.

... Dang it. And I thought I could die peacefully after the Twilight Movie came out.

Now I have to pine and extend my death some more... :wink:

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today

Yes indeed to both of the above quotes/questions. I have Plan 9 from Outer Space on DVD.

If Tim Burton ends up making the Watchmen movie, I might be able to die happy, but I doubt it.
