Cowboys & Aliens: short, sweet, massive spoilers11 Jan 2012, Posted by Blog in
Lucky me, I missed Cowboys & Aliens in the theatre as I was in the hospital at the time, but Netflix came through for me. Here are my four, yep–only four, thoughts on the movie.
Lesson 1: a little peyote can fix anything. (Who didn’t already know that?)
Lesson 2: the love of your life can be dissected and incinerated by aliens, but the sight of a hummingbird heals all emotional wounds. (They should be dispensing those at the pharmacy instead of anti-depressants.)
Lesson 3: Hollywood can CGI the hell out of aliens ripping people off horses and impaling them, but can’t do shit with a simple hummingbird. (A Disney cartoon hummingbird is more believable.)
Finally: how the hell do you screw up a great premise like aliens vs cowboys?? (I waited almost a year for this movie. A year. What a waste of anticipation. Sigh. Someone get me a hummingbird stat.)
