Yojimbo (The original Fistful of Dollars.)
Sanjuro (Kind of a sequel)
Ran (It's a retelling of King Lear and movie buffs adore this film. Not really a samurai film tho)
I haven't watched many, but I'm a huge fan. I don't want to watch them on my laptop tho, since most of them are really long.
The Hidden Fortress is the inspiration that gave George Lucas for Star Wars. Supposedly he took a lot of the plot for A New Hope.
