Magnificent 7, The (1960)

Join me and the crew of Film Bin for one of the greatest westerns ever made. It’s a fun, funny, sometimes-poignant shoot-’em-up from 1960 with an all-star cast (well, nearly), and a top-notch pedigree.

We compare the film to the sequels, The Seven Samurai, Ocean’s Eleven, The Three Amigos, A Bug’s Life, Westworld, Return of the Jedi, Home Alone, and Postman Pat. We recast it for no reason and also try to reset it in Britain. We poke it for flaws and find almost none. (Why give them back their guns, tho, seriously?) And we invent a couple of back stories and sequels (and copyright them!) involving werewolf hunting and hangovers.

We’re watching the Blu-ray and stay in perfect sync. Start the film with the MGM lion logo on the countdown.
