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?

Bob mini review Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and season 5 of The Good Wife. Logan mini review’s Easy.

In weekend picks, Logan talks up Crisis in Six Scenes, Shameless, and Timeless. Bob mentions Deepwater Horizon, American Honey, and Maximum Ride, but pulls the trigger on Masterminds.

In weekend picks, Logan mentions Transparent and This is Us (plus a few from the Fall preview). Bob chooses The Magnificent Seven.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Veep, Inside, Seven Days in Hell, Weekend Picks

We know you’ve been putting off seeing Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates until you had our take, so here you go. Can this cast carry a good comedy? Does the R-rated raunch help or hurt?

Logan and Bob also jointly mini-review the latest season of Veep. Bob’s got a couple more, and talks about Inside and Seven Days in Hell.

For weekend picks, Logan mentions Mr. Robot, Suits, Ballers, and Vice Principals. Bob talks Ghostbusters, The Infiltrator, and Cafe Society. BUT, we’re taking the week off next week, so there’s no¬†official pick. You’re on your own. We believe in you.

In weekend picks, Logan mentions Tyrant and The Night Of. Bob half-heartedly mentions Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, The Secret Life of Pets, and Captain Fantastic, but can’t decide if he wants to see any of them. Watch Twitter for his final pick.

Independence Day: Resurgence, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Weekend Picks

Huge show this week! Logan and Bob saw all the same things, so we can disagree on everything, as nature intended.

We start off with Independence Day: Resurgence. How does it compare to the 20-year-old original? Do we miss Will Smith?

Also get our season wrap-up of Game of Thrones, including our different opinions on Jon Snow and our season-end awards.

We also dual mini-review Silicon Valley. Getting better? Worse? (Spoiler: we argue about that too!)

In weekend picks, Logan sheepishly admits to watching Dating Naked and The Great British Baking Show. Bob’s pretty meh on the week’s movies. Might reach into the ol’ backlog. Stay tuned to Twitter for the pick.
