Anybody see the cross talk about this movie? Starring Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig, two of of my fave actors. Executive producer, Steven Spielberg. One of the producers is Ron Howard. Directed by Jon Favreau, who did both Ironman movies. I'm actually excited about this movie. Everybody connected with this movie, even the screen writers, are all major players in the movie biz. What this means is, they all heard the concept, read or collaborated on the script, and all agreed it could be a major winner. I'm ready for a classic, something I'll watch 15 times in 3 years on DVD. Like the Jason Bourne movies. Go and read about it, the talent connected to this is mind boggling.

Well, I like the idea of it. Cowboys and Aliens. That's like two of my favorite genres.

I mean, once you introduce aliens to a script - heck, you've jump off into fantasy or science fiction, anyway. Might as well have cowboys in it.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

No one thought Indiana Jones was going to do anything either. This can be that or it can be Ishtar. I hope it's Indiana Jones.

I must admit the trailers wet my appetite and I'll probably go.

The story is based on a graphic novel idea that mixes alien invaders with the old West. I suspect there will be a father who has to rescue his son (a common storyline).

Read more on the inception here.

Let us not forget that Olivia Wilde (House's "Thirteen") is also in it....

Seriously, that forehead can be used to bounce messages to the Moon (and back). The hairstyle compliments the shape of her face, and her features are to die for, but she'd look a lot better with bangs of some sort, as she has appeared lately in the TV show. But Iguess it's not her forehead you're looking at...

Thanks for the plot. I've bene disappointed with comic book movies before, like Watchmen.

The Watchmen film was fantastic considering the material was so dense and layered. Rorschach was exceptionally well done.

I never read the comic book, but I'll take your word for it.

The movie was very successful visually, and the acting was mostly good. My problem was with the villain's actions, the acquiescence of those who should ahve stopepd him (except The Question, I mean Rorschach), and the near endless flashbacks that kept getting in the way of the story. The best I can say about it is that the parallel universe it created felt real and credible. I'm glad I saw it, but I wouldn't see it again.
