MY WIFE’S REVIEW OF Cowboys and Aliens

My wife and I just saw the new movie Cowboys and Aliens. We went despite the fact that it has received poor reviews.

Afterwards, I asked her what she thought of the film, and she said:

“Cowboys. Aliens. Indians. Handsome men. Pretty women. A kid and a dog. Good guys and bad guys teaming up to fight a common enemy. What’s not to like?”

I very much agree.  It isn’t the best film ever made, but it was not a waste of time and/or money.  A lot of fun. My wife and I recommend it.

  1. See, this is how the professionals should do it. This movie has now been slotted into the list of ones to see. I don’t need to know any more.

    The professionals are clearly idiots. Please remember that no one ever erected a statue memorializing a film critic. Word of mouth has been and will always be the best and most powerful reason to see or not see a film.

    But I have to warn you: as I was leaving the cinema, I overheard a man complain “I thought it was going to be funny.” I can only surmise that he thought he was going to see something like Blazing Saddles.

    Cowboys and Aliens is a straight-up American Western. If you expect anything different you will be disappointed, too.


  3. It has, cowboys. Aliens. Indians. Handsome men. Pretty women. A kid and a dog. Good guys and bad guys teaming up to fight a common enemy, how could I possibly be disappointed?


  4. Good enough for me.

    So no baked beans campfire scene then?

    Your wife’s list is pretty much what I was hoping for. The trailer I saw at ‘Captain America’ yesterday looked pretty decent. I’ll go.

    BTW: ‘Captain America’ gets much the same kind of review. It’s got Nazi superscience threatening the world. Hugo Weaving being ‘The Red Skull’. A ‘Captain America’ who doesn’t actually feel like a piece of cheesy propaganda (probably because they play that line for both laughs, and a certain pathos). It was fun. I liked it.


  6. I miss Slim Pickens.


  7. Great review! You actually overviewed some curious things in your post. I came across it by using Google and I’ve got to admit that I already subscribed to the site, it’s very great 🙂
