Moving to Trivia.
* DuelingStarsMovie: Creator/HarrisonFord vs. Creator/DanielCraig. Franchise/IndianaJones vs. Film/JamesBond. 80's ActionHero vs. 00's ActionHero. One can only wonder how [[AwesomenessIsVolatile cinema screens don't catch fire]] when those two guys are in the same shot.

* ImmuneToBullets: The aliens' exoskeletons shrug off regular period firearms like they're nothing, [[RealityEnsues though they still are reasonably affected by the recoil.]]

* ImmuneToBullets: The aliens' exoskeletons shrug off regular period firearms hanguns like they're nothing, [[RealityEnsues though they still are reasonably affected by the recoil.]]]] Shotguns actually seem to wound them slightly, but their main problem is still the recoil of ''those'' bullets - Jake uses this to great effect in the climax.

* AdaptationDistillation: The comic is an allegorical condemnation of ManifestDestiny - the aliens come to Earth to add it to their empire and treat the indigenous peoples like dirt. There's actually a scene where a white guy screams "they don't have the right to do this to us just because they have better guns!", only to be met with a DeathGlare from an Indian. In the movie, the aliens have GoldFever, abduct people via techno-lasso - and it focuses more on people trying to do what seems right no matter their past deeds.

* ShoutOut: The [[spoiler:alien ship explosion at the end]] looks a lot like the Death Star explosion pattern in ''StarWars''. The Indians hooting/hollering sound a lot like the Ewoks in the same movie.
