Olivia Wilde was the best-and only-reason to sit through it.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Gary Larson?


In a perfect world, he'd take a gazillion royalties just by virtue of being Gary Larson.

I got really hammered watching that one. I barely remember anything about it.

Daniel Craig: "Mumble, mumble, mumble I'm a cowboy."

Harrison Ford: ""Mumble, mumble. mumble, there's some aliens".

Space ships for some reason, end.

I feel like the only person in the world (other than Mr ConCon) who liked that movie.

bad movies are awesome. my mind will not be changed.
 
2012-11-14 07:57:25 PM
I wouldn't call it a good movie, but it was entertaining. I liked it well enough.

I paid to see this movie and got exactly what was advertised.

It was full of cowboys and aliens.

I JUST watched this TODAY (while sitting in Honda's service waiting room) and I enjoyed it.

Did you think it was going to be Schindler's List? It's CALLED "Cowboys & Aliens!"

I thought it was an interesting story, the effects were good, AMAZING cast (under used if anything....Sam Rockwell should have had more to do... and Clancy Brown too)

Silly premise, but if you buy aliens, you can buy aliens mining for gold, I say.

And yes, Olivia Wilde!!

It's secretly run by Ron Paul.

And can we please stop using Adam Beach to play Native Americans? He's an awful awful actor
 
2012-11-14 08:16:23 PM
I thought it was entertaining. Is it a movie that I'll talk about years from now? No, I tend to forget about it completely. I've seen it twice and enjoyed it each time, but it's the sort of movie you have on in the background while you're sitting around talking with friends.

If anything, I think Ford's acting took him out of his (recent) regular roles and I loved him for that.

ConConHead: I feel like the only person in the world (other than Mr ConCon) who liked that movie.


I liked it too. As somebody upthread commented, it was exactly as advertised. Cowboys. And aliens. And frankly, if you took away all the stuff about aliens it was a perfectly serviceable cowboy movie in its own right.

Also I thought that the special effects were above average. It felt like the actors and the effects shared the same physical space and were intertwined. Too often, effects-heavy movies have that "Look! Up in the sky!" vibe to them, where unremarkable things happen down on the ground while remarkable CGI happens on an entirely different plane and the two never connect -- like that notoriously badly-matted scene towards the end of Men In Black where agents J and K stand awkwardly in front of a blue-screened crashing alien ship, except extended to movie length.

Hardly a classic but I have yet to see what's so awful about it. I had fun. Glad to see others feel the same way.

While I didn't hate it, I got about 3/4 of the way through it and decided that I had had enough.

fusillade762: I got really hammered watching that one. I barely remember anything about it.


I saw it sober and I can barely remember anything about it.

Making things worse is I saw John Carter a week later (equally as forgettable) and I can't remember if certain scenes are from Cowboys and Aliens or John Carter.

I never understood all the hate. I enjoyed it.

How much is badassdigest.com paying for these links? I am not clicking them following that utter fail of a James Bond bit a few days ago.

/and why is gold valuable everywhere in the galaxy?


It's uncommon and it's very useful in electrical applications.

Sam Rockwell's character was great. It was a fairly standard wuss-redemption story but he's very likable so it worked.

The Kurgan Clancy Brown was awesome and should have been in the entire movie.

Snakes and sparklers are the good stuff.
 
2012-11-14 09:03:19 PM
Van Lente (with Greg Pak) managed to write a very entertaining and funny comic book run featuring Marvel's version of Hercules.
It seems that rather unlikely feat raised my expectations excessively concerning the MST3K potential of this movie viewing.

I submitted both of those links and if someone is getting paid it ain't me, I have a phone bill to pay. I like Badass Digest. So screw you anyway, and pay my bill.

THIS.

It said Cowboys and Aliens, it delivered Cowboys, Aliens and Olivia Wilde. I left satisfied.

It's a good conductor. Death Stars don't wire themselves.

I liked the first 10 or so minutes - after the aliens show up it goes downhill.

I don't like the hybrid movie thing. I love westerns, and I love movies about aliens, just not together apparently.
 
2012-11-14 10:13:46 PM
It should have been the most awesome movie ever. Cowboys. And aliens. How do you screw that up? Apparently, [channelling Goldblum] Hollywood... Found A Way.

I don't know what proportion of the movie was gone when I couldn't take it any more and turned it off. But the pain. I remember the pain.

Apparenlty, aliens are white men.
 
2012-11-14 10:44:39 PM
You know, if you get really wasted and imagine that this movie is an alternate reality sci-fi thriller where Indiana Jones and James Bond have both forgotten their true identities and have to work together to save the planet, it still sucks donkey balls.

It's uncommon on earth but it's also uncommon everywhere in the universe? I guess it is, the Ferengi love it too.
 
2012-11-14 11:10:52 PM
It was a dull slog. It was so damned repetitive, and not one character was appealing. By the halfway point, I wanted the aliens to win so it would be over.

Yup.
SICK of people, especially around here, who think that every sci-fi movie is supposed to be the second coming of
'The Day The Earth Stood Still' - the original, not that POS re-make.

All these movies get hyped like crazy and then ripped because they don't live up to said hype.
Farking allah, that has gotten boring.

I don't think anyone hates the movie. There's just not enough there to provoke that level of response. Most of us simply forgot it.
