Live Poll:Best English Language Akira Kurosawa Remake

Western film makers have often looked for inspiration in Asian cinema. Especially from Kurosawa's films. Sometimes it's borrowing a premise and sometimes it's taking whole plots, beat for beat, in a new setting. There's a long list of films which have extensively "borrowed" from his works. And here it is...

Which of these western versions of Akira Kurosawa's films is your favourite?

@Pencho15​ I wasn't sure if l should include it as it's technically a remake of the remake but i've added it now

Interesting poll, I tried to suggest this a while ago:

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls073007794/

It's a totally different idea but you might find other movies that fit your description

@ElMaruecan82​ Thank you. l wanted to stick to films that were incredibly close to the original.
l also had to make the decision to leave Star Wars out as it's not as close as the original screenplay is said to have been...plus it would have been a landslide win

@Cherganski​ 

You can't delete an option once it has votes. And, only Django doesn't have votes. 

The best you can do, I believe, is changing the title of the poll. Something like "Best Kurosawa Remake" would fit.

Suggest a re-push here: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/imdb-poll/faq-poll-authors-repush-requests/5f4a7ad08815453dbabc3d05

@cinephile​ I'll make it into "Best Western Kurosawa Remake" as there are also japanese ones. Would a repush cancle the votes already cast?

I don't believe so, but I'm not an expert re-push procedure. That is the poll admins' job.

@Cherganski​ No, a repush doesn't cancel the votes and can be done safely at any moment.
