Friend of the Rocker Morning Show, man-about town, movie critic, and raconteur, Ryan Jay stopped by The Rocker Morning Show to talk movies opening this weekend.

Magnificent Seven

  • “There is a majestic, sweeping scope.”
  • “It’s the western to end all westerns. Everything about it feels iconic to the genre in a celebratory way that’s not cheesy.”
  • “It’s beautiful. I don’t love westerns and you don’t have to like westerns to get into this because it’s such good storytelling that it doesn’t matter.”
  • See it!


  • “It’s one of the more original stories for an animated film I’ve seen… From the story to the characters, to the style, it’s all very unique.”
  • “It’s not ultimately just for the kids. It has an overall theme about defining family and there being the sort of “family you choose,” etc.”
  • “I was very pleased by this. It’s a fun one for any age.”
  • See it!
