Geeky Movie Review: “Cowboys and Aliens”

If you have ever wanted to see a western and add the element of aliens then “Cowboys and Aliens” is the movie for you. The movie title sums up what it’s all about. However director John Favreau takes this movie and turns it into a crowd pleaser in all the right ways. All you need is a little Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, and some clever writing and you have a great summer blockbuster. The movie is actually a distilled spin-off from a comic book by Scott Mitchell Rosenburg. With a ton of writers and co-directors they were able to expand the comic world into an exciting cinema experience.
I loved every western cliche brought to the table in this flick. Everything from the mild mannered bartender who’s also a doctor, and doesn’t know how to shoot,but in the end does something heroic. To the bratty kid of a wealthy entrepreneur who thinks he can get away with anything, including shooting up the town. The surrogate, wide eyed boy, who you think at one point might cry out for Shane, and takes a liking to the faithful mutt that follows Craig’s character from the beginning. The gun totting preacher who has all the right words of encouragement. I mean this movie had every western cliche you could think of, and it was awesome.
