Weird West

Coincidentally, just as I started reading a new steampunk western novel, I noticed that the steampunk western movie “The Wild Wild West” was showing on TV over the weekend. Will Smith’s film (unlike Tonia Brown’s Railroad series) is unreservedly awful, which is a shame because on paper it has all the right elements to make a good fantasy adventure. Maybe it’s the horrendous dialogue, the cringe worthy attempts at humour or perhaps it’s just that bloody theme tune… the total is worse than the sum of its parts. Not to worry, the channel is easily changed and my Kindle is fully charged.
