Today is July 7th, 2007. As in 07/07/07. A freakin’ cool date. Inspired by sevens, I had to put together a list. (My urge is to put together several lists. Seven, even. But I doubt I’ll have time.) This list is of movies. Seven movies. Seven seven movies.
seven movies featuring seven
- The Seventh Seal/Det Sjunde inseglet (1957)
Ingmar Bergman’s classic drama of Death.
- The Seventh Sign (1988)
These would be signs that the end of the world (as we know it) is near.
- The Seven Samurai/Shichinin no samurai (1954)
Akira Kurosawa’s classic film with samurai (7 of ’em) who aid a village besieged by bandits.
- The Magnificent Seven (1960)
The Seven Samurai reinterpreted as a western.
- The Seven Year Itch (1955)
The image of Marilyn Monroe standing over a subway grate with her dress blowing up may be more famous than the movie it came from…
- Se7en (1995)
A thriller about a serial killer who takes his inspiration from the seven deadly sins. (I don’t believe itching is one of them.)
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Doc, Dopey, Sneezy, Sleepy, Sleezy, Happy, Bashful and Grumpy. Oh, wait. That’s eight.
