Mobster's Rating: Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens is a decidedly old-fashioned movie. Although the title drums up comic-book imagery and the special effects are the state of the current art, everything else about the film suggests it could have been made some 40 years ago, perhaps starring Steve McQueen in ...

At 80 minutes, The Last Rites of Ransom Pride is all style over substance, and the style isn't even that great.
Appaloosa looked the kind of movie that was going to be impossible not to like. A western with the likes of Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, Jeremy Irons, and Renee Zellweger? This was not a long shot. None of these actors really make bad movies or play roles that aren’t interesting.
