You know what would make a great version? If you did it in the style of a blaxploitation film. Set it in an apartment building in Harlem in 1972. The poor residents are being threatened by the Italian Mafia (aided by the police, of course), and in come our heroes, wielding sawed-off shotguns. One of them is a karate expert. The leader (I'm thinking Samuel L. Jackson) would smoke cigars and deliver one-liners while fighting. Afros, dashikis, and bell-bottoms everywhere. A couple of the good guys wear berets. The love interest would be a Pam Greer type, but I'm not sure who could pull it off. The soundtrack would be updated versions of Motown classics, heavy on the bass. It could called, "Seven Badass Motherfuckers", although we might need to tone that down to get widespread distribution.

God, I should have been a Hollywood writer!

Er, mag 7 is a remake of 7 samurai. SO thats what they are doing, remaking 7 samurai. Also the new film looks really silly, jumping shooting nonsense. I watched mag 7 and it was ok but a bit lame really. I have watched 7 samurai several times and its just a better film. MInd you, I really like Kurasawa films.


Wooooooooooooooooooooooosh.

Magnificent 7 is one of those films that probably doesn't need to be re-made. It pretty much did all that it was supposed to do first time round. And it did it very well indeed.
I wish film studios would invest that money on something new rather than remakes or spin-offs (decent Star Wars spin-offs excepted, of course).
I feel like a grump for saying that because film remakes are as old as film making itself and hardly nothing new. But my main point still stands - some films don't need to be remade and Magnificent 7 is one of those.


I welcome remakes in general, there are very few films that last for ever. Try watching an old Bond Film without rose-tinted glasses - god they are fucking unwatchable. Also what we tolerate as an acting style changes. There are some old british B&W movies that make one wonder if humans were replaced by a different species sometime in the 40's, the actors are like aliens. But Magnificent Seven is still excellent, and I struggle to see how this can do anything but spoil it.

There is a scene in Throne of Blood where 'Macbethu' and 'Banqu' or whatever they are called are lost in the fog and gallop into one cloud after another. It's a handy point to go and make a brew as he will still be grimacing like a Heike Crab and galloping into and out of mist when you get back.


still a good film though
