I thoroughly enjoyed today's podcast, with both of you providing intelligent, in depth and entertaining analysis of the two films. For me, The Magnificent Seven is also a film I'll watch when it pops up on TV no matter how far into the movie it may be. Tonight, if I can talk my wife into it, I'll be getting out the DVD.ReplyDelete
Can I make one suggestion? Is it possible to put a convenient DOWNLOAD button on the podcast post? I may be the only one, but the best way for me to listen to it is to have it downloaded onto my phone, so I can listen to it even when I'm not home and online.
Tim...If you put you cursor over the podcast player at the bottom of the blog post, a small box with an up arrow in it will appear. Click on it and it will open another window where you will find the traditional download button...Delete
Thank you. I thought I might be missing something obvious.Delete
You'll never hear me say a bad word about THE WILD BUNCH as it was the first 'grown-up" movie I ever saw. I vividly recall seeing it with my father. I've owned THE WILD BUNCH in every format from VHS to Blu-Ray and I generally watch it again two or three times a year.ReplyDelete
You nailed it on both films. The Magnificent Seven is worth watching multiple times; The Wild Bunch much less so. Western movies succeeded because of the triumph of good over evil, white hats over black hats. When the white hats are black hats, as in The Wild Bunch, there's no one to root for or to take pleasure in their success.ReplyDelete
Another great podcast, guys. To wade into the 'which is the best of the two movies' debate, I think THE WILD BUNCH has a visceral greatness THE MAG 7 lacks. My issue about WILD BUNCH - and Peckinpah in general - is his treatment of women. I think THE MAG 7 is good, rather than great. It has a wonderful score, of course, and excellent action scenes but I have problems with some of the casting - not Wallach, Bronson, McQueen or Coburn - the others! I'm also a little prejudiced against it in that the Japanese original - THE SEVEN SAMURAI - is, IMHO, an masterpiece that can't be improved on. But that's just my view. Keep up the excellent podcasting!ReplyDelete
Greatly enjoyed your discussion of these iconic movies. Liked your side point about Walter Hill's Streets of Fire, which I did not realize. It is also interesting because I think that Streets of Fire is a modern re-telling of the Western ethos in a pulp / comic book version of the western ideals. Nice job!ReplyDelete
