It’s a western set in space (which is how it was first described to me before I saw anything other than a trailer).
I had seen a trailer for it before a Peanuts film and wanted to see it, this is before it blew up and it was all word of mouth.
It was playing in my hometown at the theatre the farthest from my home and I couldn’t find anyone to drive me.
About a month after it was released I had lunch with my father, his sister (who my dad took the opinion of very seriously) and my brother. My aunt asked, “Bob, have you taken the boys to see that Star Wars movie yet?” I almost fell off of my chair. An ally! My dad was I think amazed that his sister and seen this, let alone was probably going to endorse it. “No.” She replied, “Oh, you really should. It’s great. And you should go, too. You’d like it, it’s like a western but set in space.”
We went to see it that weekend.
