The Magnificent Seven

I was expecting to enjoy The Magnificent Seven; I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the 2016 version of The Magnificent Seven, based on the screenplay of the same name by Akira Kurosawa. Kurosawa’s film, The Seven Samurai had a great influence on this film. In this legend, seven rough, fighting men volunteer to defend a small town against a dark enemy. Remarkably the warriors’ back stories are well developed, making the saga fascinating. The calamities that occur in the evolving story show how raw things could get in the “good old days” during the post-Civil War era. The action flows smoothly along as the story rushes to the climactic ending. Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Vincent D’Onofrio star in this Western. Overall Rating A+

Arrival

Linguistic professor Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is a mysterious figure who is called by the government to solve a puzzle involving a mysterious aircraft. Colonel Weber (Forest Whitaker) and scientist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner) accompany Banks on her mission. The story's timelines move rapidly between the future and the present, accompanied by Banks’s increasingly eerie, erratic visions. Circumstances surrounding the unnatural aircraft and principal characters are not what they seem. Soon, dangerous events pressure the central characters to crack the mystery of the aircraft before disaster occurs. Overall Rating: A+
