MOVIE REVIEW: Cowboys and Aliens

Sam White's picture

“Cowboys and Aliens” is a fun movie, if not one that’ll change your life in any noticable way. The title pretty much tells you what the movie will be about. Still, it’s been so long since we saw a cowboy movie–let alone cowboys who had thoughts that originated above the waist–that I was glad to see men (and woman) a-horseback again.

The movie starts with James Bond waking up in the desert, shoeless, yet accessorized by a really snazzy bracelet.

SMALLVILLE - Looking Back

In many ways, I came late to the “Smallville” party, which is part of why I was asked to write this article. The other part of “why” is because I once roomed in college with Republibot 2.0. Who am I, you ask?

Hello, I’m Sam White. You may remember me from such fantasy novels as “First Time: the Legend of Garison Fitch” or the comic strip “Tuttle’s” or the on-line comic book, “Burt & the I.L.S.” Of course you do.

An Interview with fantasy author and RB contributor Samuel Ben White

To say that any fiction has to conform to someone else’s idea of what’s “right” based the current mores of theology, science or whatever is to miss the point of fiction. Fiction is about exploring the “what ifs” of life and thought. Granted: it needs to be interesting and/or entertaining, but it can be as wild and unconventional as the author can successfully create.

Proving once again that they are, well, whatever the U.N. is supposed to be, they have appointed Malaysian astrophysicist Mazlan Othman to be the first person to greet the space aliens, should any of them ever land on earth.

EPISODE REVIEW: Chuck: "Chuck vs. the Cubic Z" (Season 4, Episode 3)

Last season, "Chuck" was renewed for 14 episodes. Then NBC realized their programming lineup sucked and Jay wasn't funny if you were awake, so they suddenly ordered 5 more eps. This lead to some uneven eps last season that made you think they had been quickly cobbled together. Not bad eps, just "half-eps" that bridged a gap that didn't really need to be bridged. That's what this week's episode of "Chuck" felt like to me.
