If you're a listener of any ilk of The Next Reel, you may have heard me rant and ramble about my love of the new podcast, If You Like... . Hosts Joel Harris and Adam Lanter pick some nugget of entertainment each week and then share a dozen recommendations for great works that you'd enjoy, if you like the central piece. They are, truly, the human recommendation engine.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was to be invited to sit in with Joel for a discussion around Akira Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai, and offer my own picks! Yes, we talked about Kurosawa's influence, and the importance of the film to the gestalt of Asian cinema, but we also talked about BOLLYWOOD and ROGER CORMAN!
Anyhow, I hope I did justice, and invite you to check out a great podcast if you're a film, comic, or general pop culture nerd. And you can start with this episode right here!
