OK, here's the deal. When you're talking about a movie called “Cowboys and Aliens,” you'll do well not to overthink it.Lars Walker, my hero. Which must say something about how influenced I am by the critics' comments, in that I need someone's enjoyment to watch it.
I'm glad I hadn't read some of the reviews I've read today, before I went to see the film last night. Because I had a great time. I don't think I've sat in a theater seat and enjoyed myself so much since I saw “Taken.” When you're talking summer movies, it doesn't get much better than this, if you're asking me.
On the other hand, movies ain't cheap these days.
