Grazer, who has been deemed “legendary” thanks to his works in ground-breaking TV shows and Films like Splash, Apollo, A Beautiful Mind and Shadow Chasers, recently said that he regrets making Cowboys and Aliens.
At Aspen ideas festival, when an audience member asked him about his regrets, he said, “I agreed to be part of a movie called Cowboys & Aliens. I don’t like cowboys, or aliens! But there were a lot of superstars involved with it — Ron Howard; Steven Spielberg; the director of Iron Man, Jon Favreau. I remember having this one meeting, an early meeting, and they’re talking about the title, Cowboys & Aliens. I said, ‘We aren’t really calling it that, are we?’ (The others said) ‘Yeah, of course we are!’ I was going, ‘I don’t get this at all.’
Grazer continued, “Every once in a while I rationalize quality. There are so many decision you make, and you’re trying to do excellence. We know what excellence is. We know what better food is versus not good food. But there’s a rationalizing process—that’s good enough. Anytime the light bulb goes, that’s good enough, it’s shitty!”
While many seem to agree that Cowboys and Aliens was indeed not a good movie, Grazer’s other ventures have fetched him huge recognition and admiration!!
