Really? Hidden Fortress is my favorite Kurosawa...

Hey to each his own. My favorite is Seven Samurai (I'm really tempted to get that new transfer now skalogre!), Ran is a not so close second, and Yojimbo/Sanjuro gets honorable mention. I still have here unwatched; Rashomon, Red Beard, Throne of Blood, Ikiru Currently, I'm still trying to figure out how to convert Divx to DVD so I can get my Lone Wolf and Cub series watchable on my DVD player!

Might just be more time effective to get a DIVX playing dvd player. They are like $99 for a Divx playing samsung. Then you just burn the files on a disk as data, and voila!

I was very disappointed by their 1998 version which I thought was far below their usual standards. That said, I am Criterion's bitch and just picked up Kicking and Screaming, a movie I was beginning to think I was the only one in the world to have liked.
