Review of “Cowboys & Aliens”

“You can’t argue with a really good title, especially one that tells you everything you need to know about a movie and still makes you want to buy a ticket. Cowboys & Aliens is a pretty near perfect title – succinct, a bit witty, and sporting two nouns with such potent movie mojo that it could end up as the root and trunk of a whole genre of its own. It’s just a shame that almost everything that happens under the glowing marquee of that title is so disappointing.”
