    My heart is telling me Seven Samurai but my bodies telling me Ran.

    I really like Red Beard - just look at that facial hair. Now that's a sensei!

    I really liked Stray Dogs and Throne of Blood, but I have to give it to Seven Samurai.

    Though I'll admit I haven't seen Ran yet. I can't imagine it being better than Seven Samurai though, that'd be insane.

    Anyone who doesn't say Rashomon is wrong.

    Of course it’s gotta be seven Samurai, but Yojimbo is also a favorite of mine.

    This happens to me alot. If I had to choose which one id watch more today,Ran is slightly more pleasing to watch.Even tho it dont have Mifune.

    I wanna say Sanshiro Sugata but that's just because I just started training Judo when I watched it.

    Does the Sensei star in any of them? If not, why even bother directing? :)

    The only one that I watched was Dreams.

    Hit and miss, but a wicked premise.

    Ran IMO. Got a special thing for Throne of Blood as well.

    "My Lord, we are undone. Prepare to die. I will follow you directly."

    Kurogane was so badass. That's even seems like a dodgy translation so it's probably even more badass in Japanese.
