they are both long and have good cinematography. The difference is Seven Samurai is a good movie.
Is this a "good movie" in terms of normal people or a "good movie" in terms of japanophiles that have orgasms whenever they see/hear anything that comes out of Japan even if it's utter garbage?
normal person good movie.
It was made in the '40s or '50s and introduced a lot of cinematography tricks and camera angles that are now commonly used.

It was so good, we just had to turn it into a western.
Kurosawa is actually a extremely well respected director. I enjoy it and I don't suck... I mean, I don't care for most new entertainment coming out of Japan...
It is a very good movie and I loathe almost all Anime and typical Japanese Fanboy garbage. Ranks right up there with Citizen Kane. The comparison with "The Magnificent Seven" is tenuous at best in terms of the overal quality of the movie. Watch it Cow if only to see the roots of much of modern day cinematic archetypes.
