There are several movies listed in the article

Rashomon
Hidden Fortress
Throne of Blood
Seven Samurai
Ikiru

ALL of them are amazing films.  I highly recommend watching them.  Where might one do that?  I like Filmstruck.com - they have a ton of these movies in beautiful remasters.  I think the best thing we can do to honor these old masters is to actually watch some of their films.

Filmstruck is worth every penny and then some.

Hell yeah!  Amazing the library of great films that's on there.  Always updating with cool additions every week, too.

One thing I've noticed is that areas that use rice as their main source of starch tend to be better off than areas that use grains like wheat. 

Having good genes helps too :P
