The Hidden Fortress

The Hidden Fortress ★★★★★

Probably the most entertaining and most fun Kurosawa film I've seen. Has an amazing samurai duel scene and the two peasant characters that are the archetypes for what will later be C3PO and R2D2 are just great to watch and genuinely funny. There's also some really really impressive set pieces, it's like a 1950's blockbuster.
