dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.

The Atlantic: Antoine Fuqua’s ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Is Anything But.

Early on, when he [Denzel Washington] raises eyebrows by presenting himself in an all-white saloon as a ‘duly sworn warrant officer,’ it’s hard not to hear echoes of Cleavon Little in Blazing Saddles and Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours.” Worried about that. But only a fool would try to remake Magnificent. That the original eclectic cast (astonishing in their variety) pulled it off, makes it a miracle that could never be re-approached by coherent processes, much less bested. Completely illogical on its face, almost to the point of insanity - yet it captivates.
