Sep 21, 2016 | Movies, Podcasts, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, take a trip down a dirt country road and review Antoine Fuqua’s interpretation of a Western classic, The Magnificent Seven. Starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Haley Bennett, and many others, the film takes moviegoers on an action-packed adventure, as seven gun men in the old west gradually come together to help a poor village against savage thieves.
