    Celebrating what would have been his 100th birthday, Turner Classic Movies is showing a 24-hour marathon of Akira Kurosawa's films on March 23.

    TCM plans Kurosawa tribute - UPI.com

    I get TCM's "Now Playing" magazine and it lists March 9 as another day for his films, starting with Ikiru at 8 ET. And Ran, Kagemusha, and Dersu Azala will air on the 30th.

    Mmm. Kurosawa films. Looks like they picked a pretty good lineup too, though I hope Ran makes the list as well.

    Just bought Ran on bluray last week, and a few more of the Samurai group come out this month on Bluray. The Sanjuro/Yojimbo duology come out this month, and Seven comes out in March also.

    I'm looking forward to this Marathon.
