@Schattensturm Also, A Fist Full of Dollars and Last Man Standing are obvious remakes of Yojimbo. I don't think it's correct to say that Star Wars was a remake of The Hidden Fortress, but it shares some characters and plot points.

Akira Kurosawa was a genius, and quite literally shaped cinema as we know it starting in the late 1940's. He invented certain kinds of shot composition and such things as using weather and wind as integral parts of the story, not to mention he's the first one ever to use slow motion in a death scene, early in The Seven Samurai.
