One magnificent film, three also-rans

Advantages: Classic first film
Disadvantages: Weak sequels, lack of extras on the sequels

...This collection is usually between £15 and £20 on amazon. The Magnificent Seven is certainly not the most critically acclaimed western ever made, but it’s probably my favourite. It’s a remake of Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai (which in truth is a lot better), ...

If god didn't want them sheared he would not have made them sheep

Advantages: Classic Western action film
Disadvantages: The extras could perhaps be a bit better

This is a review of the MGM Blu-Ray, about £7 on amazon. This is one of my favourite Westerns. While it doesn’t have the savagery of The Wild Bunch or the beauty of Once Upon A Time In The West, it’s a hell of a lot of fun, and I’ve loved it ever since I ...

People scare better when they're dying

Advantages: Classic Western looking good on Blu-ray
Disadvantages: The extras are very samey
