Saddle up, pardners; Marshall of our sister show Twin Cinema joins us this week to talk about the classic 1961 Western The Magnificent Seven! A remake of Akira Kurosawa’s seminal Seven Samurai, the John Sturges-helmed remake follows a ragtag group of outlaws (Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, James Coburn, and more) hired to defend a meek village from some evil Mexican banditos. Along the way, we share our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
DRINKING RULES FOR THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN:
- Whenever there’s a long shot of a landscape or vista
- Any time you hear the word ‘corn’ or ‘maize’
- Every time a character sits down on something that is not a chair
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
Yul Brynner says, “Only the farmers won. We lost. We always lose.”
Join us next week as we get comfortably numb with the psychedelic prog-rock art film Pink Floyd: The Wall!
