Cowboys and Aliens

Cowboys and Aliens (Jon Favreau, 2011). The title says it all, really, like Snakes on a Plane. So I’ll just quote Umberto Eco (actually on Casablanca).

Two clichés make us laugh but a hundred clichés move us because we sense dimly that the clichés are talking among themselves, celebrating a reunion.

But what was Harrison Ford thinking? Alimony? And Daniel Craig? Prolly something to do with money, anyway. There was a lot of it about.

A spaceship arrives in Arizona, 1873, to take over the Earth, starting with the Wild West region. A posse of cowboys and natives are all that stand in their way.
