05.18.07Netflix A kiddie movie about a little alien visint an old west town in texas. Supposedly it's based on a true story, but the movie's pretty drabby and laggy and really only worth watching for two things: Jack Elam plays checkers with himself in one scene and talks to himself and even pulls a knife on himself. That's pretty great. The other reason is that the alien is played by a kid with progeria That's the one where you age really fast. According to IMDb, the kid got cast because of the make a wish foundation and his one wish was to star in a real hollywood movie. If that's the case, I'm glad everything worked out for the little guy. If that's a lie, then man is that messed up.

Oh, and some of Elam's lines are sampled in a DJ Shadow song... so that might also count as a reason to watch if you're a huge Shadow fan or something.

ack mentioned this movie in his intro last night so thanks to him. It was worth it to see that little old kid walking around in the old west.
