Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai ★★★★★

I've seen this movie more than enough times to that point where:

1. I feel like I already have so much of this memorized, from little interactions between each character, to certain quirks that make each character so distinctive.

2. It flies by so much faster than the over three-hour long running time. But that's also a testament to how well-paced this movie is, there's not a single moment where it ever feels like Akira Kurosawa is ever wasting his time.

3. I always feel like I'm just having a blast coming back, not purely on a count of how well-made it is, but also how Kurosawa blends social commentary with a storyline that's just thoroughly exciting from beginning to end.

I feel almost like I could ramble on about Seven Samurai but at that point I know I'm just repeating myself.
