That Moment In ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ When Jake Remembers Alice

Cowboys & Aliens is a 2011 sci-fi thriller set in the old American west where a race of space aliens have come to invade Earth. Sounds like a cool idea, right? Well it is and for the most part is a pretty entertaining flick with some cool effects and a great cast. Directed by Jon Favreau and based on a popular graphic novel, it was one of the most highly-anticipated movies of that year, with hype reaching almost unprecedented levels. While it did moderately well at the box office, audiences didn’t quite embrace the film and critics fell fully split on whether it was worth a watch. Whichever side you stand on, the movie does have plenty good going for it, and like every movie, has one great moment.
