3-Score Reviews: Cowboys And Aliens

The extreme juxtaposition between the old west and sci-fi prevents the film from finding its footing. It feels like neither the cowboys nor the aliens quite fit into this film. It has enough action to keep you occupied but as the quieter segments give way to possible plot development it just feels overly tiresome. Olivia Wilde makes a welcome appearance.

    I don’t think it deserves quite the 1/3. It’s not a classic, but still a good watch. Any ways, Olivia Wilde earns an extra * just for Appearing!

    • Yeah, you’re probably right! Although I didn’t overly enjoy it! The 2 star club is reserved for the films that have their problems but I quite enjoyed, whereas 3 stars are those that I feel are outstanding! Part of the reason for rating them out of 3 is because essentially I either really really like a film, think it’s pretty good or not too great, anything in between felt a little arbitrary. Thanks for the feedback 🙂
