Are these sentences correct:

1) A tall cowboy, like the ones you see in the movies, opened the door.

2) Strange robots, like creature you see in science fiction movies, were moving around in the hall.

3) A tall cowboy, like John Wayne, was inside the phone booth.

Gratefully,
Navi.

Lose the commas and pluralize 'creature'.
