Intermission: Seven Samurai
Summary: On this week's "Intermission"...it's the film that's inspired everything we know and love about movies today. Okay, we can't back that statement up, but we can offer our take on a movie by a filmmaker who has had a lasting influence on action/adventure filmmakers in generations since. And to say it's critically acclaimed would be an understatement. Rotten Tomatoes currently has this film at a "100% Fresh" rating, which means technically it can't even be listed on the site and can only be looked up on its sister site, Fresh Tomatoes, which shut down last year due to a lack of traffic. But not only is it critically acclaimed, common folk love it too, with it regularly placing in the top of various (and sundry) viewer polls. Does the universal love hold true for us? Tune in and hear our take on Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.
