Kpolly here.

Idris Elba. Jonathan Majors. Regina King. Lakeith Stanfield…. Okay, so… I guess go ahead and watch it now. What do you mean you want to hear more? That. Is. Enough!

The new western on Netflix, “The Harder They Fall” not only has one of the best ensembles of the last decade, but it has an exciting and surprising story to wrap it up in. The characters are loosely based on a variety of real-life outlaws and frontier people from the American West. Their lives have been embellished and brought together into one film, but the film still encourages us to dig into these bold characters and check out their other stories. 

When you watch, keep an eye out for the nod to the late Chadwick Boseman. Do your best not to cry.  

Check out what else we have to say about the film. And we’ll talk about what else we’ve been watching. Don’t forget to like, share, and subscribe to Cinebuds on any (and all) platforms. We want our mothers to be proud of us, and this is the ONLY way we’re gonna do that….
