The Magnificent Seven, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, The Good Wife, Easy, Weekend Picks

I’ll be honest. I didn’t realize we’d have so much to say about The Magnificent Seven, our full-review movie this week. How’s the classic Western action? Can it stand on its own as a good flick above and beyond its heritage?
