Empire Magazine, which I find a useful source of information only because whatever movies they like I usually hate and vice versa, has polled 50,000 people to find out what the “best” film out there is. I am now glad to report that Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai only just made the top 100 of this list which is headed by George Lucas’s early cinematic masterpiece Star Wars. Seven Samurai was in fact 93rd.
The top 10 can be seen here, in case you are interested. To be honest, I actually quite like two of the films on that list (numbers 5 & 6), and have nothing particular against three others (7, 9, 10).
