I usually try to catch the latest Roman Porn extravaganza that is Spartacus. Either Blood and Sand or Gods of the Arena.

This films from Akira Kurosawa are cinematographic legends

Seven Samurai
(Shichinin no samurai)


Rashomon
(Rashômon)


Yojimbo
(Yojimbo the Bodyguard)


Sanjuro (Tsubaki Sanjûrô)

Kagemusha (The Shadow Warrior)

Hidden Fortress (Kakushi-toride no san-akunin)

NetFlix has a few other from him, But I have never see them so I can not really recommend them.

Amazing movie with Elijah Wood and Eugene Hütz (the lead singer of Gogol Bordello) basically where Elijah's character goes to find out about the woman who saved his grandfather from the Holocaust. It is a serious movie at some points due to the subject matter but there are a lot of great and funny scenes.
Thanks, N&V! Watched it last night on your rec. Darned good for a directorial debut. I thought the grandfather was great. The whole thing was perhaps a bit too obviously Wes Anderson influenced, but a good watch nevertheless. Going to have to read the book, now...

"Paint by Numbers" Remakes are always kind of lame and this one was no exception, So sad the first one was such a cool movie

I liked the new film. Not really a remake and should have been called Kung Fu Kid. What spoiled this one for me was the hero and his girl needed to be 3 or 4 years older to make it more believable.

Beat the Drum (South African) 6.9 - "Young Musa is orphaned after a mysterious illness strikes his village in KwaZulu Natal. To help his grandmother, Musa sets out for Johannesburg with his father's last gift, a tribal drum, in search of work and his uncle." (+4*'s)

Okay if you don't call that a remake, I don't know what is, well except for the "Wax On, wax Off" is pretty much the same thing, yes different country and ethnics but the plot is pretty much the same number by number.
