If It Ain’t Woke, Don’t Fix It: The Magnificent Seven, reviewed.

(l to r) Vincent D'Onofrio, Martin Sensmeier, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Ethan Hawke, Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Byung-hun Lee star in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Columbia Pictures' THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN.

Wait, Michael Biehn starred in a short-lived Magnificent Seven series on CBS in the late 90s? I’ve always been bad at keeping up with what’s on TV, but this I should’ve known, given my long-term interest in the guy.

Anyway, here’s my NPR review of the new Magnificent Seven from Antoine Fuqua and Denzel with Chris Pratt mugging his way around, too. Random note: It’s funny that both The Magnificent Seven and Westworld, two long-dormant properties that starred Yul Brynner — most famous for the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I, “etcetera, etcetera” — as a black-clad cowboy, are both getting reimagined in 2016, isn’t it? I think it is.
