Friends & Enemies: The Magnificent Seven(s) Samurai
0:00 -:--
In this episode of the BW/DR Podcast, Senior Editor Andrew Root and magnificent guest Fran Hoepfner discuss Anton Fuqua’s 2016 remake of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio et al). We look at how this new film stacks up against Fuqua’s last film, THE EQUALIZER as well at the original 1960 MAGNIFICENT SEVEN and the “original-original” SEVEN SAMURAI. Andrew and Fran also ponder what to do with Chris Pratt, whether friendship plays a part in this type of film, and discuss how people make friends in the first place.
