So, the movie Cowboys & Aliens is coming to theaters this Friday.

For some reason, I have an uncanny luck of hearing names of movies before ever seeing anything about the movie. So, I heard the name of the movie, and immediately tried to piece together what the heck could warrant a two hour plot. Even after hearing people describe it (admittedly, their descriptions didn’t go much beyond the title), I still couldn’t fathom how anyone could be interested in it. It just seemed like such a simple concept, and I couldn’t wrap my head around it.

I just saw the commercial for the movie for the first time this week. And now… I need to see it. The little kid in me screams “There’s cowboys and aliens!” And the rational part of me really doesn’t have any way to counter that argument.
