    Hoping the upcoming sequel doesn't go all bonkers with overblown special effects and stays true to the original.

    He has several great ones, but I'd probably go:

    1. Ikiru
    2. Ran
    3. Seven Samurai
    4. Rashomon

    Then a number of others but those 4 are certainly his best imo.

    I used to really like Kagemusha. Throne of Blood was a powerhouse film, even though it's just a Japanese version of Macbeth. Being a western movie fan, Yojimbo was very entertaining to me.

    Iron Sky
    Mel Brooks meets Philip K. Dick.

    I think I'll skip that one.

    I will however go to see this...



    Dave Bautista and Michael Rooker are just hilarious.

    Don't forget the music. I want to believe...
    Nah, I'm sure they'll ruin it.

    All excellent choices, but I would add to the list Kagamusha, a film described by Kurosawa as a “warmup” for Ran, but in my opinion, stands as its equal, perhaps superior.

    I agree with you that Kagemusha is superb. Perhaps it would be #5 if I included it.

    The Producers directed by Mel Brooks, starring Zero Mostel & Gene Wilder.

    Cracks me up every time!
