  Saw Magnificent 7. Loved it.

  I've heard a lot of "eh, do they really need to do a re-make?" My answer will always be "I enjoy any remake made with love." And this was made with immense love. I also found it drew a lot on Seven Samurai, in ways the original Magnificent 7 did not, so there was even more for me to love. And I think many of the actors would have done it for damn near the cost to show up, because there was a distinct undercurrent of gleeful abandon in the performances. Nobody was phoning it in.

  Beautiful scenery, some -excellent- dialogue/character interactions, a somewhat shockingly diverse spread of backgrounds for what you might ordinarily thing of as a pretty homogeneous genre (they'z all cowboys, right? not so much...), and the all essential violence goes from nerve-wracking to apocalyptic in the blink of an eye. And some fabulous cross-party butt-saves, the kind you DREAM of engineering at the gaming table.

  Two guns (and all 12 bullets) up.
