Cowboys & Aliens

Unlike Thor, Captain America, or any other superhero movie that came out this summer, I wasn’t sure what to expect when heading in to see Cowboys & Aliens.  To be honest, I had no idea it was a graphic novel which was published back in 2006.  It was fun not having a single clue about what was going to happen next.  In my reading, the film makes some changes when compared to the novel, but that usually happens.

Combining the old west with futuristic alien tech is something I’ve never seen before, and I really enjoyed it.  Let me say one thing.  Harrison Ford makes one badass cowboy that I wouldn’t want to screw with.  The same can go for Daniel Craig.  The aliens were designed well.  They kinda reminded me of miniature incredible hulks.

There have already been small talks about a sequel, but I’m not sure how that would work.  The end of the movie really puts a cap on the whole thing.  In 2007, there was a web-comic released that was a sequel to the graphic novel.

All in all, it was a great film.  Nothing gets more sci-fi then the title of Cowboys & Aliens.  The last movie I’ll probably go see this year in the theatre is Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  After that, I’ll be waiting for The Avengers which hits theatres May 2012.


Major Pull Today from 2008 Donruss Classics Football

Today I went to visit one of my local card shops called Sports Zone Memorabilia located in Lewisburg, PA.  I needed to pick up top loaders and I saw that they had two new sealed boxes of 2008 Donruss Classics football cards.  I decided to buy both because I have seen some cool stuff pulled from it.  I took the boxes home and the first hit in the first box was a Felix Jones Significant Signatures autographed rookie card #’ed 22/25.  When I looked up the card on eBay I couldn’t believe that there was one on there selling for over $300.00.  This is one of my biggest pulls ever.  Earlier this year I was able to pull the Felix Jones SP rookie card from a box of Playoff Prestige.  This guy keeps following me whenever I open packs.  Some of the other hits I got was a Adrian Peterson Jersey #’ed/25, Brian Brohm Jersey, Fred Davis School Colors Jersey, Allen Patrick autograph #’ed/499 and a Vernon Gholston autograph #’ed/499.  I also pulled a ton of insert cards and Miami Dolphin cards for my collection.
