Cowboys & Aliens

Cowboys & Aliens seems like a great recipe for a perfect summer movie. A little Western, a little aliens, kickass stars. Unfortunately, there are about 150 writers and 84 producers, which means too many cooks in the kitchen. It's not perfect, but it's still a good time. The action scenes are great - it's pretty cool to combine horses with alien ships - but in between, the story lags. It gets a tad boring, but picks up during the fight sequences. Also good - guest appearances by Boyd Crowder and that kid from There Will Be Blood.
