It’d be almost redundant to describe Akira Kurosawa’s works as influential. His career, spanning six decades, has resulted in numerous films that have tried to emulate his works (but never with an equal result). This week, The Magnificent Seven was released, reminding us yet again that Kurosawa’s films—regardless of their age—will continue to exist in Hollywood, not as bygone antiquities, but staples of film that are as powerful now as they were more than half a century ago.

Gary is a twenty-two year old Canadian who partakes in all sorts of sedentary past times (reading, video games, etc.), his favourite of these is watching movies. His love for the cinema runs deep and he is constantly trying to find new ways to engage and approach films (because films are constantly trying to find new ways to engage and approach people). He does this mainly through film criticism, which he sees as both a hobby and a crucial link between movies and those who want to understand them a little more.
