Personally, I've always considered the "which one I think is the better film vs. which one is my favorite" debate to be absolute bullshit.  They're the same thing.
I can make the difference between an entertainment flick and an art film. How could it be even possible to rate - lets say Braindead on the same scale as Schindler's List?! They are both 10/10 but would I ever compare Braindead to Schindler? No, because they are totally different kind of  movies, and that's why I can't say which is my favorite. But, of course saying: "This movie bored me to death but it's still great 'cause it's a classic" is stupid (not saying that anyone here has said so).

I've seen only SS... In fact I can't say I have seen even that because the circumstances were so bad that I would be embarrased to tell how bad  Tongue

The Magnificent Seven was good ...I guess ...but mighty flaws. Seven Samurai is better in just about every way.

In a statement, company said that it had also invested an undisclosed amount in the martial arts film The Forbidden Kingdom, which pairs Jet Li and Jackie Chan.

Why in god's name are they remaking such classics?!?! Who cares if some knuckleheads in this gereration refuse to watch black and white films. Let them suffer, it's their loss! Angry Everyone feels they have to tell that story again because people won't see the originals. Well if you know anything about film, like most of us do here, we've already seen them.

The overall acting in The Magnificent Seven was below average, while the plot structure felt like a mess. It's a decent movie overall, but nothing compared to a near masterpiece like Seven Samurai.

The acting by Yul Brenner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Colburn, and Eli Wallach was below average?!?! I DO NOT THINK SO BUDDY! What film were you watching? Huh

Eli is absolutely great. In Seven Samurai, the lead bandit was not so characteristic.

My biggest matter with TMS is Horst Buchholz. And when I see Mifune, I find Buchholz more worse...

There was a lead bandit in Seven Samurai? I don't recall seeing him.
