Who Wants To Play Some [Cowboys and Aliens]?

Yep, this is a thread about this movie.

Cowboys-Aliens.png

Which has a ridiculous amount of star power behind it.

You've got Daniel Craig...

Harrison Ford...

And Olivia Wilde...

All looking rugged and shit, while fighting aliens at the direction of the guy who made both Iron Man movies...

Which apparently creates a formula for an unexpected flop. Or maybe a fun blow-em-up popcorn movie?

Who knows, I haven't seen it yet. Let me know how it goes.

    SHUT UP ALL OF YOU THIS MOVIE WAS GREAT

    I went to the midnight showing and it was everything I was hoping it would be

    "everything I was hoping it would be" consists of:

    1) Daniel Craig wearing pretty pretty cowboy outfits

    2) Aliens being shot

    3) Harrison Ford being all cantankerous and shit

    4) There is no 4th requirement here

    normally I agree

    I will probably still see it, if only because of the premise.

    Exactly, the reviews I've seen of it made it sound like it's supposed to be serious

    I am kind of tempted to read the reviews for this, to see why critics apparently hate it.

    And if the criticism boils down to "The plot/character development were horribly shallow," I might scream.

    The movie has Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford playing cowboys and fighting aliens.

    There is your plot and/or character development.

    If this movie is successful hopefully the script I am working on, Ninjas and cliches will get picked up.

    This bears repeating.

    It is called.

    Cowboys.

    And.

    Aliens.

    It is two kids in the backyard with sticks and rocks making the stupidest fantasies come to life.

    It is a less ridiculous premise than Avatar.

    best review I 100% agree with.

  • Sweeney TomSweeney Tom Registered User regular
    Saw this yesterday.

    It was alright. I didn't take it seriously, so it wasn't that insulting.

    Plus, I got to see Daniel Craig blow up aliens and Harrison Ford act racist around Indians. So there's just no way I could hate this movie. Even a little bit.

  • DidgeridooDidgeridoo Registered User regular
    This movie was the most fun I've had at the theater in a while, but I went in with that mindset. I wanted it to be silly and it was! I wanted it to be action packed and it was! I wanted it to have pretty people starring in it and it did! I wanted aliens to be in it and by golly, there were aliens!

    If your expectations for this movie deviate too far from that list, you will probably not like it. But if you want to see a super-fun summer popcorn movie, you have just hit the jackpot

    that was Aang in the Avatar movie

    I was bored watching this in the theater which is ridiculous since I can't remember the last time that has happened

  • AbracadanielAbracadaniel Registered User regular
    Battlefield LA was boring. Fell asleep boring.

  • DrIanMalcolmDrIanMalcolm Registered User regular
    I mean, you know there's something wrong when the big climax for your main character is [slight spoilers]
    him standing stationary at the end of an hallway, simply blasting aliens one-by-one as they crawl around the corner before they ever get close enough to be a threat.

  • Sweeney TomSweeney Tom Registered User regular
    I can proudly say that there is no movie in history that I have watched that has been so boring it has put me to sleep.
