IMO Mag 7 is a good movie and 7 Samuarai is excruciating. Three hours of Japanese men crying.

D&D - as a Leone fan, surely you find something in Seven Samurai to your liking? The Kurosawa influence on Leone was very significant after all.

D&D is excruciating: 3 hrs. of listening to him talk about all the babes he's banged. Give me the crying Japs any day.

So I stand alone on thinking that the original Mag 7 is better than Seven Samurai? Samurai is overlong and more academic than enjoyable. The Mag 7 is brilliantly directed, has a fantastic score and is one of the more fun movies of the classic Hollywood era. It also feels more modern than most movies of its time.

Glory isn't bad. It may rise to "good." But that is different, if I understand correctly, from "real worthy."

I liked Inside Man a great deal to be honest. Crimson Tide is also tightly packed, and worth of your time.

I'd have to rewatch 7S and TM7 to give my opinion on whichever I like more; but I did like them both. That much I can tell you.

Inside Man is a very good thriller, with lots of amazing acting, not only by the Denzelist.

Crimson Tide is 6/10

I was HIGHLY disappointed in this film. I'm a  huge fan of the director, Antoine Fuqua, and of course, Denzel Washington, so i had HIGH hopes that this movie would start a rebirth of westerns that Tarantino has failed to do with his version of it.  Everything was on deck for the director to do just that. Did i say already that i was HIGHLY disappointed in this movie?

First, a lot of people felt it was either blasphemy or just plain no need, to redo the original Mag7.  I disagree wholeheartedly because to me, the original was overrated, big time. I said in my review of the original that they had the huge build up, excellent cast, and mixed all that with pop gun fights.  This movie went the opposite direction. It had the huge cast, but a stupid the Mag7 meets avengers, buildup. No character development, and a stupid script.  The gunfights went the extreme opposite direction, but lacked the Peckinpah realism...

Everything about this movie was done to setup the final showdown.  What a showdown it was. Way over the top. Did i already say this was a avengers movie? I wanted to turn it off when Chris Pratt's character did his attack the gatling gun sequence. I wanted to burn it when Denzel's character pulls a Once Upon a Time in the Old West thing at the very end when he reveals why he is truly after the bad guy...

Garbage, and i expected more from both the director and Denzel Washington...
