Might as well. That hack Lucas ripped off Hidden Fortress to make Star Wars, so might as well continue plundering from more talented dead directors.
It has been quite a while since I saw either movie, and I saw them far apart in time. I recall that the opening sequence on Tattoine obviously references/pays homage to/rips off the beginning of Hidden Fortress. Do the similarities, either in terms of plot or visuals, continue as strongly throughout? I just don't remember.

This, unless you have a piece of the merchandising pie.
Totally botched my interlineation of Aravenel's post, but you get the idea . . .
