    I saw this movie yesterday and I had a great time. Craig's fight scenes were brutal. It was not a perfect film, but it was really enjoyable and I recommend you guys watch it, because I haven't had as much fun in a movie theatre in a long time.

    The one thing i liked about 300 was that i saw it more as the story teller exaggerating events, less then "they fought like a giant, super rhinos and shit"

    Unless it was supposed to be literal, and whats his face fought a troll, then that's just lame.

    I liked Cowboys and Aliens a lot. Sure it had a few missteps, but it was fun and I liked the actors.

    so this movie was pretty okay

    it wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either

    had some fun bits, and some odd bits

    I had an idea though that I think would have improved one bit
    if when Olivia Wilde had been injured, instead of the indians tossing her on the fire which heals her somehow, I thought she should have pulled out a GPS to lead them to her ship which had been shot down by the bad aliens where she could get medical help and also some alien rifles which would have enabled the townspeople to fight the bad aliens better

  • FeriluceFeriluce Adrift on the morning star. Aberdeen, WARegistered User regular
    Is it funny that a thought I had at the start was
    "Huh, Olivia Wilde kind of looks like an alien anyway. Funny." Then she was the alien.

    There's no Battleship movie, no Monopoly movie, no Total Recall remake, no M Night Shyamalan film trilogy occurring, etc.

    My faith in humanity depends on my pretending none of this stuff is happening. Please, nobody ruin this for me.

    You'd also miss Star Trek, the Marvel movies, Scoot Pilgort, Source Code, the new Winnie The Pooh...

    Harsh price for the ignorance.

    also I saw some Total Remake footage at Comic-Con and it actually looked pretty okay

    Or just not have some stupid good alien that gives pointless exposition and saves the day, and instead have the cowboys win with pure grit and ruggedness

    A movie just being ok isn't really enough to motivate me to go pay $10 or so to see it in a theater. That's basically telling me to wait till it's on netflix.

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    I paid $6 to see it at the cheap theater. I'd say it's worth about that much.

  • DurkhanusDurkhanus Commander Registered User regular
    I liked it. It did not make me fall asleep.

    In my opinion, it is worth one viewing. It does not make me want to own it.

    Went to see this today.

    The intro credited around five people for the screenplay. That set off alarm bells. And it turned out that those fears were justified.

    you mean they can't stop the aliens from raping the horses and riding out on the women?

    Also who the fuck watched The Last Airbender and thought, "You know, Noah Ringer really brings his character to life! Let's put him alongside Craig and Ford, that movie will be unstoppable!"

    Jesus, his character had no fucking purpose.

    you know what else would have been a cool direction to take this movie
    make the aliens more humanoid, just like tall, pale, weird people who wear wide-brimmed hats and ponchos and only come out at night

  • DJ EebsDJ Eebs Moderator mod
    this movie was alright

    it was kind of a mess, but I definitely wasn't bored like some of you guys were

    I don't really get complaints about the pace, in particular, because it didn't seem that much slower than a lot of other westerns I've seen

    Just have the sexy cowgirl be a sexy cowgirl and not an alien!

    She was with him on the ship and helped him escape and has been trying to find him and is surprised that he has no memory of her. Bam same exact character without all the extraneous horseshit.

    Like

    is there a person on earth wants to see a movie called Cowboys and Aliens and have it end with someone other than the cowboys beating the aliens

    So that Harrison Ford can give him a knife with the unspoken agreement
    “You’ll use this in the third act to kill an alien.”
