The Seven Samurai. Just watched this epic film again after many years. I had forgotten what a masterpiece it was. Black and white, grainy film and crackly soundtrack but still knocks sparks off some of the so called blockbusters out today.

Handmade suit of Samurai armor: Danny’s always had a fondness for Japanese swords and samurai armor, and that hobby led to a desire to own a set of armor. He put in two years of study and hard work to create samurai armor that was as authentic as possible. He made it from metal pieces that were all carefully hammered into shape by hand and then strung together with rope. The finished suit weighs more than 77lbs! Wow. Click for more pictures.
