The Magnificent Seven

So I tricked my son into watching The Magnificent Seven with me by explaining to him that it was a remake of a ninja movie. Yes, that did the trick, and he loved it. He now sees the different characters in everyday life, and often points them out to me. His favorite was James Coburn's character, Britt.

Every day since, I've been obsessed with getting Westworld. I was close to my son's age when my own father introduced me to it. What a great show. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, it was a precursor to the Terminator franchise, with Yul Brynner portraying the unstoppable malfunctioned robot killing guests in the futuristic "Wild West" theme-park. Good stuff as I remember it.
