I was talking about the original Star Wars movie which I think is what Lucas was talking about when he said "Star Wars" wasn't like "The Hidden Fortress". I noticed that there were posters here on this thread who spoke of the Princess Yuki/Queen Amidala connection but I think Lucas was just referring to the original movie in the interview that's on "The Hidden Fortress" DVD. I don't have "The Hidden Fortress" so I can't check it out right now, but I'm not saying that the Yuki/Amidala connection doesn't exist. Since you're a Kurosawa fan, Stryphe: Did you ever compare "Yojimbo" to "A Fistful of Dollars"? I just did the other day. I like Sergio Leone but I wonder if he really thought he could get away with that. I guess if "A Fistful of Dollars" would have been a flop then Kurosawa wouldn't have went after Leone for restitution. I got the Netflix membership and just watched "Sanjuro" today. They're good movies but it would help if they would put a voice over commentary on the DVD's like they did with "Seven Samauri" because I need some of the aspects of the culture explained to me. Like when the peasant girl was willing to give herself to the young samauri in "Seven Samauri" there is a whole reason as to why she is upset but gives herself to him anyway that was lost on me until I watched it with the commentary turned on.
