7 gunmen, for approximately 2.5 reasons, fight on behalf of a town they don't actually care about.

Fair. I mean.. it's just fair. Why bother with a remake if it's not going to even attempt to be better? It's a knockoff of the 1960 version set in California United States. Recommended for fans of westerns, but only so you can say that you saw it..

I couldn't get half way through this. Not only do the various genres in this movie not interest me, but it highlights "listen and believe". I fucking guarantee that's why Emma Watson is in this.

A coming of age story of a class of students learning poetry in an unorthodox way.

While I recommend and like this, it not great.

Something about it makes it feel somehow inelegant or simple, perhaps even predictable. Perhaps it stood out in its era, and it caught me at an impressionable moment for my first viewing, but as I watch it again it doesn't grab me much at all. I think this would be weakly-mandatory for creating a well-rounded movie-learning experience in someone young.

In a world where genetics predetermines health, a man with congenital defects pursues his dream of becoming an astronaut.

This is, for me, an intensely nerve-wracking movie. I will definitely keep it in my collection, but I find re-watching difficult.
