Cowboys & Aliens

No joke, pardner: ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ is pure popcorn entertainment.


Science Fiction

Phil Bacharach
“Cowboys & Aliens” sounds like one of those high-concept flicks for which you might expect the idea went no further than the jokey title. Think “Snakes on a Plane.”

Cowpoke paradise

Swadley’s serves top-notch barbecue in a chuck wagon-themed dining room.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Swadley’s Bar-B-Q’s original theme song plays when you open swadleys.com. Complete with manly man vocals, mustang snorting and spaghetti Western whistling, the lyrics in part tout their catering: “If there’s a crowd you need to please / We’ll grab our meat and haul our buns.”

The praise and prizes for this crime series are fully ‘Justified.’


Television series

Rod Lott
Season three of “Justified,” which kicked off last night, has some mighty big boots to fill. The 13 episodes of the second season prove that, and if you didn’t see them, grab the triple-disc DVD set pronto.

Grand Duel / Keoma

Two helpings of spaghetti, please!


Western

Rod Lott
Mill Creek Entertainment offers another "Spaghetti Western Double Feature" by pairing 1972's Grand Duel and 1976's Keoma on one Blu-ray. Although both already are available on the company's Ten Thousand Ways to Die: The Spaghetti Western Collection on DVD — not to mention a dozen other labels' public-domain discs — the prints here are so clear that fans of the genre should consider the small investment.
