Comment By Dr. Loomis
Only one main release this week in the UK and it’s yet another remake. Yes it’s The Magnificent Seven which itself is a remake but a least that was of a none English speaking version. I’m getting rather bored with all these remakes that add nothing special.
Maybe this one will be different I’m yet to see it but I don’t really have any real desire to do so.
Come on Sony be original and take a chance on something new!
