Yeah, ok, not a terrible movie even though they do an updated version of jumping the shark.....

But what I kept saying to myself: "Ain't it grand, the cowboys and criminals and Indians all getting along. But what about the aliens. Why aren't we trying to UNDERSTAND them. I mean, we're hoarding all that gold they need and are just killing them indiscriminately while they're trying to redistribute it--AS IS ONLY FAIR. I guess we're just a NAZI species after all.

Yeah, well now it's satire, and once again, at the expense of the easy, predictable Left.

Did you actually watch it, or just read about it?

It's a mometary draw for us. A win for planet Earth. Though Adam Beach does die.

Even in a movie First Nation people must pay the price for others.

Yes. I would have said I hadn't seen it if that was the case.

It could be, on a Michael Moore or Al Gore level. Of course, nobody called them illegal aliens.

Yes.

That was my thought. Sometimes people read WAY to much into movies. Personally I thought the movie looked like it ran on rule of cool more than anything (granted, I only got that from the trailers). I still want to watch it, though.

Ok, It just wasn't clear based off what you wrote.
But I've never been a fan of film analysis, as it tends to say more about the perspective of the person doing the analysis rather than the filmmakers.

Feel free to correct me if the world has changed recently and nobody told me.. I've been busy.

I sort of thought that the movies that came out between Memorial Day and Labor Day were supposed to be entertaining bits of fluff... made specifically so people would have something to do on a hot summer afternoon, that didn't involve thinking or sweating..

Has this changed, and is this why we're getting a critique?

I wasn't reading into it, it's obvious that it's not what was intended, just tricking a little political commentary, which I thought was obvious. I mean c'mon , illegal Aliens?

If that was true, we'd still be wondering what 2001 was about, and we'd still believe Al Gore telling us that global warming causes glaciers to calve icebergs. You believe the same thing about book or any art criticism? Criticism of criticism is the same as whole criticism--consider the source.

Yes, God forbid we should think in the summer, or absent that, squeeze some substance out of the fluff with some well placed zingers, especially at the liberals expense--however unfair and one-sided it might be.

Hmmmmm, ah yes, now I see the objection.
