This looks pretty interesting. Surprised I haven't seen any mention of it

Looks like we are reaching for movie ideas to me, but it looks entertaining. Give me a good ol fashioned western, with no computer special effects anyday. Gene Autry is about my speed or an old John Wayne from his early days in the 30's. Seems like movies have just gone to very little acting, and a lot of computer graphics, which I find boring, overdone and unrealistic.

A lot of people have that reaction... that we are running out of ideas. I guess that's possible.

But with producers of the caliber of Ron Howard and Steven Speilberg, and with Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig acting... it should be a well done movie.

I don't think it's meant to be a Western. More of a science fiction movie.

Surely if the aliens are among us today, they were around in the 1800's as well... not too far a stretch.

I agree and when I saw Ron Howard, I thought it probably will be very well done. Also the cast and adding Steven Spielberg spells out something fantastic. I was speaking in General when I talked about computer effects, they seem to be all movies have turned into, and when you have seen one, they seem to all do the same things.

Her first movie as an actress was The Girl Next Door.

HOWEVER, you should know her from Tron: Legacy. She was absolutely gorgeous in that film.

I loved both Trons. I think Jeff Bridges is a fantastic actor. I'd definitely watch it.

Tron? The original was good (for its time) back when I was a wee child. The new one--as far as the trailers went--does not look good.

OMG I watched Green Hornet the other night. It's GOT to rank in the worst 25 movies I have ever seen. Miserable!
