Re: Yeah the "NOTLD" remake is pretty much a guilty pleasure
I don't have a problem with other people enjoying it but to me that movie was too dull to be a guilty pleasure. Maybe if I'd watched it with friends we could have had more fun with it but seeing it by myself it just felt like a boring version of the original, but in color and with better special effects (the only good part) and a heavy handed "message" ending.
I think people find Dreams too simplistic for a Kurosawa movie, it's probably more satisfying if you are actively interested in seeing him create cinematic version of his dreams. I thought that was an interesting concept and I liked what he did with it.
