    Seven Samurai

    ★★★★★

    Today has been an internal battle for me. Last night, I found out that two of my elderly family members have COVID-19. One is currently brain-dead. The other, I'm told, is doing as well as she can. But considering her pre-COVID condition, I'd be shocked if she survived.

Considering my own frustrations with our current blockbuster landscape, it was nice seeing an…
