@quinlan58: What are the notable films that you have watched from Kurosawa? I have only watched Seven Samurai. It had excellent action sequences and acting.

Say what you want about them form a technical standpoint but theres nothing with as much watchability and quotability as them two for me. I'm a big fan of style of substance when done right.

I'm at that point in film-watching where I know a lot of films some don't, but those who do know more about film than me pretty much stomp me.

Great to see It's a Wonderful Life mentioned. George Bailey is one of my favorite characters in fiction.

Dersu Uzala is the first that comes to mind. Perfect from a visual perspective, extremely likeable main characters, great man-against-nature narrative. Then there's High and Low for your crime thriller needs, Ikiru for your life-affirming message needs, Ran for your ultra-dramatic medieval war story needs, etc.

@quinlan58:

Thanks. It seems like this is how Kurowswa directs a film, especially with the visual perspective. I will check Dersu Uzala and High and Low out.

@vishop_: There's a great video on youtube that analyzes how Kurosawa built the visuals of his films. Link is here. Warning though, dude can't help but criticize The Avengers for some reason, but otherwise it's great and to the point.

Honestly, I have already watched that video, before even trying Seven Samurai but thanks for suggesting it. I wasn't sure what the video wanted to explain about the movements but after watching Seven Samurai, I realized a bit about what the video tried to imply. I think I will gain a certain perspective after watching more of his movies but Seven Samurai was really good.

Picking out 5 favorite films is basically as difficult as been asked about your favorite film at this point, lol. Too many great pics.

I will put an effort once I'm done with my quarantine watchlist. I've got about 20 new films to see.

Too many to choose, I'd have to separate by categories and my favorite at the time is constantly in flux.

The most technically perfect and critically acclaimed film I've seen is probably The Godfather. But unless I'm in a certain mood it can get boring for me after a bit.

I'm pretty obsessed with The Lighthouse and A24 films in general at the moment, so I'll go with that.

Best high tier CBM action though still remains to be Man of Steel, with Batman v Superman also getting a nod, really any Zack Snyder film is going to have great action and amazing visuals.
