It’s the penultimate episode of Season #Taran3no! Like in GCU #29 we once again find ourselves in the Old West. No mechanical spiders to be found, though. Just a massive ensemble of gunslingers, bounty hunters, civil war vets, and villainous varmints.
First in our adjective-numeral themed western double feature is a golden age Hollywood film about seven men – who fought like seven hundred. The Magnificent Seven starring Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, and Charles Bronson. To be clear, that’s the 1960 American remake of the classic Japanese film, Seven Samurai. Not the 2016 American remake of the 1960 American remake of the classic Japanese film, Seven Samurai.
It wouldn’t be Season #Taran3no without over-the-top violence and racial slurs, though. We also discuss a film about eight strangers who, quite frankly, are just not very friendly people. Of course, we’re talking about the cabin fever inducing Netflix extended cut of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. To even the odds on this magnificently hateful double feature we asked Matt D. of 60’s Reboot Podcast and Comics with my Kids to join us. Hold on, Daisy! I wanna watch!
