Mr. Rogers Chills with the Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai… Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Summer is a time to sit outside with a glass of lemonade. Take a hike. Play at the beach. Have a cookout with family and friends. Experience life at its fullest and warmest.

Or, barring that, it’s a great time to sit inside, rip open a bag of Cheetos and watch a 207-minute Japanese film with lots of swords, subtitles and bare rear ends. 

On this week’s podcast, Know-it-all and Fanboy dive back into our Backlist Hall of Shame and pull out a movie that one of us really should’ve watched but didn’t. This time up: Akira Kurosawa’s classic Seven Samurai, considered one of the greatest foreign movies ever made.

Why is it considered to be so good? And did Jake actually like it? Well, you’ll just have to listen, won’t you?

[Editor’s Note: plus, Paul’s so hyped for our little chat about the new Mr. Rogers documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor, that he forgot to mention it at all in his blog copy.]
