Who said I was replying to you? My comments were obviously directed towards the author of this thread. Don't be so paranoid - think before you jump to conclusions.

By the way I have seen Seven Samurai several times, as well as many other Kurosawa/samurai films. I know a lot about Japanese culture, thank you very much. The prescence of samurai-films in the Japanese film industry shows that it is a format that generates interest, not an indication of samurai culture itself being relevant to Japanese people today. Most of my Japanese friends find samurai films so boring - they prefer love stories, action films, etc.

I "jumped on " conclusion that you were partly answering me, because you mentioned "peasants" and "samurai" relations in your previous post, and I was the only one raise that question before you.

Don't shy away from your ignorance, and think you can attack me back saying you weren't answering my question.

OMG calm down :)

I'm not attacking you. I was just making a point about the film industry in Japan. It is true that samurai films are not universally popular in Japan, nor do young Japanese always like them as much as other kinds.

How is that an attack? It's a fact.
