Lesson 29: The Magnificent Seven – Review

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. Do The Filmlosophers succumb to the nostalgia the film brings to the table, or do they take a hard nosed look at Fuqua’s representation of one of the best Western films in cinema history?

News items include our interview with producer of the controversial documentary, The Principle, Mr. Rick Delano, the announcement that Jared Leto will portray Andy Warhol in a biopic titled Warhol, and the cast images released on Instagram for the upcoming sequel to the 1995 family film of the same name, Jumanji.
