Saturday Double Feature: 47 Ronin (2013) and…

Saturday on the blog means Saturday Double Feature, right? Remember, the basic idea here is to take a movie that is out in theaters now, and pair it up with another movie from the 1980s or before. Sometimes the connection will be obvious, and sometimes it’ll be a little less so, but that’s part of the fun.

So one of the last big blockbusters to come out at the end of 2013 was the Keanu Reeve starring 47 Ronin

Somehow, I doubt it’s going to fall into the “masterpiece” category. But that doesn’t mean in our imaginary double feature world we can’t still pair it up with a movie that definitely is one, so why not go with an acknowledged all-time classic? Yep, I’m talking about Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai:

So what do you think? Do you have any other ideas for pairing films with 47 Ronin? if so, let me know below. And also let me know of any other upcoming movies you’d like to see “double featured”. Consider it, if you will, your chance to challenge me to come up with an interesting pair.

Until next time, Happy Viewing!

    Yeah .. not hearing favourable things about the new one.
    Proving again that special effects don’t make up for whatever else is required.
