I really, really enjoyed the Magnificent Seven remake. Watching Denzel in Yul's role was stupendous. Not to be shallow but he really inhabited the role strutting around hipshot in that all black outfit wearing those six-shooters.

It was also nice seeing the lack of casual racism so prevalent in older Westerns. Where there is racism, it's intentional, i.e. you know Jack Horne has it in for Red Harvest just based on him being a Comanche. But they develop a mutual respect eventually, sorta.

Plus, humor and pacing are so different these days, it's kind of hard to watch older films now. Some directors, like the Coens and Wes Anderson, still like to build slow. I'd love to see a vintage Western by Wes.

The nonchalant diversity of the cast was one of the underrated good things about this movie.
