    1. It's Kurosawa's best film (that I've seen so far) 2. It inspires a genre of group-based action films 3. The film's score

    You only need one reason, Kurosawa. That's it.

    1) Seeing bad ass Samurai joke around a lot 2) "The intermission" because I can bump up the volume & listen to the music while I re-heat some fast food chicken. 3) Tight script (not like, cool tight, (though it is that too) but like no fat tight, well focused)

    1) THE CHARACTERS: The unparalleled dynamic chemistry between ALL of the players, from the mighty Kanbei to the feeble Yohei and everyone in between. All of the personalities are so expertly defined, that any given character's interaction with every other character is compelling. Incredible. 2) THE EMPEROR: Kurosawa's confident, sweeping, masterful direction that, even after the 20th viewing, makes this three-hour plus roller coaster ride feel like less than two. 3) THE INTANGIBLE: It's just that... thing. I can't explain it. So I won't try. But it's the reason why this will always be my absolute favorite movie of all time, no question. Arigato gozaimasu, Kurosawa-san.
