Cowboys and Aliens

7 August, 2011

Okay, so this film held the potential to blow serious chunks, but it held its own and won me over. Combining what is best in westerns and scifi with a solid plot, pathos, and a few time honored conventions and special effects, this one is worth seeing on the big screen. Ford, Craig, and Wilde do a fantastic job with their roles while providing enough star appeal and eye candy to keep everyone happy. The action is paced well and JF brings the talent and vision he displayed with Ironman to full scope with some brilliant artistic nods to John Hughes. Truly does this film live up to the term summer blockbuster.
