SPOILER WARNING FOR ALIENS AND ALIENS 3 AND I GUESS LONESOME DOVE AND ALSO STREETS OF LAREDO
It was difficult for me to enjoy Streets of Laredo, the sequel to Lonesome Dove, because Larry McMurtry seemed to be suffering from what I call Aliens 3 syndrome.
Basically what happens is the storyteller takes the survivors from the previous movie or book, and the good feeling when you were like "Ughhh, they killed Bill Paxton but at least the little girl got out safely," and they KILL THEM. IMMEDIATELY. No, no, that's not right. THEY ARE ALREADY DEAD when the story picks up.
I'd like to punch David Fincher and Larry McMurtry in the balls. You know what? Everybody gets punched in the balls today. BALL PUNCHES FOR EVERYONE!
In all seriousness you should read Lonesome Dove immediately.
