Sharpen your blades because we travelling east for this episode! That's right, we've got our first Akira Kurosawa film to breakdown, and it's his 1961 film Yojimbo, which was heavily influenced by American Westerns, and also inspired that very same genre after its release. Join us as Dean explains what gruel is, Daniel gets infatuated with an eyebrow, and we both get into an argument about whether this film can be classified as a comedy.
As well as the breakdown, we also answer some listener questions, have another battle in a movie quiz and find out the results of the last two movie drafts (As well as do this weeks draft on 'Best movies remade from foreign films'). We then talk about what else we've seen during the week, including 'Ocean's 8' and the new Pixar film 'Incredibles 2'.
So come on in and join our journey!
