Movie reviews

From now on, i'll try to review every film i see from this day on.

Starting with Akira Kurasawa's epic masterpeice, Seven Samurai.

I have been wanting to see this film for some time, after months looking for a copy i finlaly "aquired" it.There is no doupt that this film is a classic, it is one of those great epic films that stands the test of time.

Even after over 50s years, Seven Samurai does what most action films aren't able to achieve to this day, tell a whole story without feeling too long or boring. Even though the film is over 3 hours long it still manages to keep you in your seat and watching, even the "boring" non-action parts are fun to watch. The samurai don't even reach the village in danger until more than 30 minutes into the film, all that time being spent getting to know each of the characters and the motivation and history behind them.

Even today some still consider it to be the "The archetypal action film", because it set so many standards and inovated so much. Even though Kurosawa had a weak budget and poor equipment compared to his western counterpartsm his film still stands, that has to say something about the greatness of this movie.

If you ever get the chance to watch it, take it and enjoy it. After seeing Seven Samurai, I am ow looking foward in watching other Kurosawa films.

Rating: 9.5/10

Scary Movie 4

Rating: 7/10
