    Just finished watching Shame, a psychological sexual drama of sorts:

    Shame (2011) - IMDb

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shame_%282011_film%29

    Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan put on super-strong performances as brother and sister in the film, both of their characters having some serious flaws to deal with. While it's truly a dramatic film, it might almost be considered porn by some, so make sure you really want to see this one before renting, or buying it. I'd give this film a score of about 7 out of 10.

    Just finished watching Seven Samurai, an old Japanese classic from 1954:

    Seven Samurai (1954) - IMDb

    I'm not sure it deserves the 8.8 ratings score that it currently holds on the movie database, but it certainly deserves to be way up there.

    That was the movie that put Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune on the international map. I think it should, for purely historical purposes, be rated an 11 out of 10!

    For anyone interested, here's an interesting story about Criterion doing the work needed to save/restore Seven Samuria after they found that the original negative was missing and they had to create a new negative from a positive they found that was in pretty good shape:

    How 'Seven Samurai' was saved - CNN

    Definitely a movie that needs to be taken better care of in the future.

    I first heard of Akira thru my brother-in-law, who sagely advised me that George Lucas had learned from him, too...

    Yeah, I had read before that The Magnificent Seven sprung from Seven Samurai, and you can definitely see and feel the similarities between them as you watch. Thanks for the link regarding the Kurosawa and Lucas comparison, too... it was a very interesting read.

    Amen to that bro' ! Criterion does some good restoration work - I guess I'll have to start buying their cruft!
