I've only seen The Great Escape, it's overly bloated, but still kind of good.

The Great Escape over Bad Day at Block Rock and The Satan Bug. Mean to catch up with The Magnificent Seven and Hour of the Gun someday.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

The one armed man for the win. 'You are not only wrong, you are wrong at the top of your voice.'

Last time I saw The Magnificent Seven saddened me, it slows to a stop after an hour and never gets going again- killed a childhood memory.

You have to see it when you're aged 10, then it's brilliant!
