Watched The Magnificent Seven (the 2016 remake) and rather enjoyed it, even if part of me was watching it as Guardians of the Galaxy in the wild west with less humor, fewer aliens and a lot more character death. I blame Chris Pratt, or possibly Joshua Faraday for being superficially somewhat alike to Peter Quill, plus the whole 'assorted folks of ill repute banding together for a greater good' thingamaplot.

Of course, when you get to 'so Goodnight and Billy are kind of like Groot and Rocket', the comparison breaks down in somewhat of a hurry.

Also wrapped up my reread of Naomi Novik's Temeraire series. I'd owned the second to last book for a while without having read it, but when my copy of League of Dragons arrived, I figured I might as well go and reread the whole series. The amnesia plot in the second to last book didn't quite work for me, but I quite enjoyed the last book and I was quite satisfied with the ending of League of Dragons.
