Just got back from seeing COWBOYS AND ALIENS.

My verdict?

Wow.  This is one gritty movie with tons of violence and gore.  We read the reviews from some parent sites which made it sound like a corny western/Sci-Fi movie.  So we took our 10 year old.

Mistake.

Yes, son said he liked it but I thought it really pushed the PG-13 rating thing.  I ended up covering my eyes through most of the movie.  Yes, I admit it, I don't care for violence and gore in movies.  Probably one reason I hate video games too.

5. Really enjoyed being…
