Over the past couple of days I have read a little bit about Akira Kurosawa and his 2 masterpiece movies Seven Samurai and Hidden Fortress. I have also seen those movies pop up here and there on this site but never paid much attetntion to it. What type of movies are these? What genre? Martial arts? Drama? Action? Obviously Seven Samurai has martial arts in it, but is the stoy line good? I like martial art movies, in fact one of my favorite movies of all time is Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. How would you compare that to these? Thanks for any opinions as I always like to get into new stuff that is worth it. Someone here told me to go out and by a Group called Steely Dan on dvd-audio about a year ago. I never heard of them but now they are one of my favorite groups and have 4 more titles.
