Think carefully before you tell me whether or not a film is good or bad. I can rationalize that Desperado is every bit as artistically credible as 2001: A Space Odyssey. I'll tell you that The Spirit is a better comic book movie than The Dark Knight. Seriously. I've written really long, really good essays on this shit.
There are at least two sides to every story, and you should take a good look at all of them before casting your judgement. If you're unable to approach something with an open mind, feel free to drown in your own excrement; I have no use for you.

All Time Worst Movies:
NOTE: you're not going to find films like The Room or Troll 2 here. "so bad they're good" movies do NOT count. these are films that I absolutely despise and have no redeeming qualities in my eyes.

I haven't seen Samurai 7 yet, but I've heard it's a pretty good remake.
Kurosawa himself was a fan of The Magnificent Seven, and it's been far too long since I last saw it for me to really comment on it, except that I thought it was enjoyable but (obviously) inferior to the original.
I can't say I have seen Sunshine, but given I've read quite a few of your post and fully agree, not to mention that your favorite movie list was stolen from me (seriously, get out of my head, it's really lonely in there), I'll give it a watch if you say so :) Cheers!
