It really is unfortunate how often movie like Cowboys & Alines never live up to their titles.

And really no Smurfs review? How on earth am I supposed to know if the movie is good or not. Oh yeah that's right I have functioning ears,eyes & a brain that not filled with rocks.That's really all you need to make up your mind on the Smurfs.

Fun review.

Bob, you should review The Smurfs next week. Not because we're all wondering if it's good or not. Because we all want to see you eviscerate it. Why do you think people like the Nostalgia Critic are so popular? Why do you think your Transformers 2 and Green Lantern reviews are so popular? People like seeing shitty art get destroyed whether it be movies, music, or video games.

what the fuck is with all of the abrams bashing, hes made 3 great movies, none of which you liked, Star Trek and Super 8 were great, and MI3 was awesome, just fucking wait until Prometheus comes out then Damon Lindelof can fuckin slap you upside the head for spewing such blasphemy

I agree completely with your review. The problem with Cowboys and Aliens is that it tries to take what is ultimately a silly premise utilized by an empty plot too seriously. The mixture of a gritty style with dumb action without any conflict is ultimately boring.

Why are your reviews videos? The images ad nothing to your points.

OB said...

Hey Bob. When you see that a movie has been written by several people, how were you able to determine which ones contributed most to the project? Those that received top-billing? I'm curious and perhaps you'll answer as I'm not being antagonistic ;)

@OB: It's impossible.

However, sometimes you get a sole writing credit (or so) when others worked on it as well, as it was in the original writer's contract to be given sole credit. Or is that anachronistic know? Either way I'm too lazy to read the Wikipedia entry and I know contracts can play a role in crediting.
Also, as a pro critic, I'm sure Bob gets press releases, with those folders full of information that non-press have to go digging to find, usually.
I was asked to design such a press kit, once, so I had to find out what the hell they were, first.
