Cowboys and Aliens ...

We watched Cowboys and Aliens this weekend. Once again, Tom said, "Why are the critics so hard to please?"

It was basically a straight-forward Western, albeit with aliens standing in for surly prospectors invading the area and terrorizing the locals. (Extremely small spoiler follows). And there's a gold rush.

Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford step up and stop them.

I saw some critics complained about the lack of humor, but many a good Western has not been humorous. It wasn't perfect, but it didn't have to be. It was a perfectly serviceable Western. We recommend it.

We particularly enjoyed the fact that Harrison Ford's character was the one that experienced marked growth. Not only was it good to see him in a decent part, but interesting that Daniel Craig wasn't given all the attention.

Ladies, I celebrate the costumer who fitted Daniel Craig's duds. Truly, you will not find your time wasted if you enjoy a fine figure of a man.
