Ever heard of Firefly? One of the best tv series ever.

Plus, I would watch Olivia Wilde play tiddlywinks.

Then why not make some more original Westerns? "Unforgiven" was great. "Open Range" was great. "3:10 to Yuma" was great. The Coen's "True Grit" was great. To name a few.

I agree that the Alien/Western idea is f*cking dumb. Hollywood can munch my sack.

All good movies, but definitely not all original.

I would say the last "good" new movie I have seen was Avatar.
