Everytime I see the word Disney on a live action movie...I immediately start disliking it. I dont know why.
Jul 3 - 09:52 PM
Well, I'll take a different view than those here and say I loved the movie!! Depp played an awesome Tonto and very glad I spent the money to see it on opening night. Can't wait to own it on Blue Ray!!!
Jul 3 - 09:48 PM
I cringe every time I see Depp's performances in the trailers so far. Tell me how is his performance in the movie actually different then other characters he's played before? I know the critics are trashing his performance, how is it different then what Im seeing in the trailers?

I am with you on this one...and I am a Johnny Depp fan. Sad thing is, he's almost becoming a parody of himself. Sort of like Christopher Walken.
Jul 11 - 02:11 PM
could not wait for this movie. i love johnny depp and really love armie hammer, but this movie is a bunch of loud obnoxious overblown shit with absolutely no one to root for, no one to like or care about. i hated it and rate it the worst movie of the summer. so disappointing. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME.

So far I've only read one good review. All the rest have been bad. Too bad really. I grew upon westerns and they're still my favorite genre.

It's going to bomb.

The first time I saw the pictures in previews, the Indian clown outfit, the bum that looked like he just fell out of a box car, dirty, unshaven, the only thing clean about him, his hat, I was sure this was going to be another 1981 LR disaster. It makes that one look like an academy award contender. Wait until Disney makes a Donald Duck movie for kids that will be X rated! I totally expect that's what is coming next from the makers of the terrible thing Disney and Depp have made of an American Icon!

I'm, repeating what I posted on another thread----I think I know what happened to Jack Sparrow , he died his parrot black and he crazy glued it to his head then the bird pooped all over his face. I looks like this in the trailers to me, Instead of treating a fictional iconic Native American Hero that saved the white guys butt in all previous Lone Ranger adaptations , this movie makers have reduced Tonto to a weird version of his former self , but I will reserve judgment until I see the movie. So far , I looks disappointing.
Jul 2 - 01:43 PM
Exactly! This movie is so clearly "market-driven" (no surprise being Disney), but it's great to see that strategy backfire so horribly, at least on a creative/artistic level. Sadly, it is likely to still make tons of money.
Jul 3 - 07:26 AM
It's 19% right now! Save your money for Pacific Rim! De Toro will save the Summer.
Jul 2 - 09:12 AM
I think Man Of Steel and Iron Man 3 already did that, box office wise at least.
You have too much confidence in Del Toro, by the way.
Jul 3 - 07:55 AM
Pacific Rim will kill this movie.
Jul 3 - 12:42 PM
Despicable me 2 will kill this movie.. I don't think it'll take much to kill this movie at all.
Jul 4 - 06:39 AM
This movie looks like absolute shit, nigga. Na mean?

In Your Dreams
Another post-Obama pocket racist pretending to be black. Yawn. There is casual trolling and then there is malicious bigotry. Shove off.
Jul 3 - 09:06 AM
Well said, In Your Dreams. A residual reminder of a fading past. Sort of like that last stubborn bit of grime on your windows, before you get them really clean so that you can see clearly.

The Artist Formerly Known as Tutweiller
Or, maybe he IS black, and you're just being an asshole.
Jul 3 - 11:08 AM
That seems exceedingly unlikely. Stop being so naive.
Jul 3 - 09:59 PM
You seem new here, so I will explain: In Your Dreams is a complete asshole, and everyone hates him.
Okay, you're caught up.
Jul 6 - 01:46 AM
I do not want to see it. Never have and never will. It doesn't matter who they get to star in this film. I'd just as soon see this as I would have seen Battleship if they'd put Johnny Depp in it. Really they could have cast Gary Oldman who is one of my favorite actors and I still wouldn't want to see it.
Jul 1 - 03:56 PM
Well, I feel for you "Star Trek Into Darkness" fans who are skeptical of "Lone Ranger." Disney really blew it. Benedict Cumberbatch would have been a real treat as LR. Imagine hearing lines like "You think you can escape from justice... you cannot." or "I will walk over your dusty corpses." Opportunity lost. Oh well.
Jul 1 - 10:20 AM
Someone at the studio said "you know what the problem with John Carter was?" And, ignoring everything else, followed with, "it didn't have a big star!"
Thus, we get this show.
Jul 1 - 06:34 AM
I think SHITTY nails it
Jul 1 - 04:05 AM
Anyone know anyone who actually wants to see this movie? Im looking at the over 90% statistic that says over 40,000 want to see it and Im thinking are they really the public or people paid by the studios to bloat the numbers in their favor? I havent heard to many good things about this liberal slanted version of a western and Depp's portrayal of Tonto is more parody then history. I havent seen it but I have a feeling they are going to have Tonto be the "star" while the lone ranger gets to be the "sidekick". You know they are going to go with the rewritten version of indian history and make them the heroes and the whites as the bad guys. Im not going into any race talk here, just stating what I think will happen and why I wouldnt waste my time on this liberal slanted version of a classic western
Jun 30 - 10:26 PM
It's like that for every movie
Jun 30 - 11:36 PM
"Rewritten history where white guys are the bad guys"???
Jul 1 - 06:30 AM
You nailed it Jeffrey. It's the Legend Of The Lone Ranger all over again. (only worse with Dippy Depp)
Jul 1 - 07:02 AM
whenever I see the words "liberal slanted" in a sentence, I tend to automatically assume the op is dumb
hasn't failed me yet.
Jul 1 - 08:21 PM
its a live action Disney movie, of course its gonna be shitty
Jun 30 - 02:51 AM
The scenery looks great...................other than that..eh..
Jun 29 - 10:28 AM
Looks incredibly stupid from a practical standpoint: There is just no way any person could maintain that absurd makeup in the old west. Screams lame.

Ash J. Gilmore
Well that's more of a nitpick.
Jun 29 - 02:54 AM
I'm with you Patrick. Another Hollywood BS 'inyourface' bomb.
Jun 29 - 10:24 AM
Johnny Dep's Voice is going to ruin the movie by it'self... Cringe worthy performances in the Trailers and I'm assuming those are the best of his clips.
Jun 27 - 11:36 AM
Yeah, I picked up on that too. Really corny as the film will end up being.
Jun 29 - 10:30 AM
Too bad, I think Armie Hammer is an actor that could really go places.
Jun 30 - 09:59 PM
It's gonna suck.
Jun 27 - 11:02 AM
It looks awful =(
Jun 27 - 11:45 AM
Just saw the Lone Ranger at a preview and I LOVED it. It was totally different than all these after the Earth apocalypse movies so popular this summer. It was entertaining, amusing, uplifting and a fun ride. I will go back again after it opens., Good Job producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski as well as Mr. Depp
Jun 27 - 09:36 AM
I saw an advanced screening of this and it was really good! A perfect summer blockbuster - lots of action and laughs. The story was well written. Johnny Depp, as always, gave a great performance. Armie Hammer did very well holding his owe against Depp and was quite funny, too. Going in I didn't really know what to expect, but I came out loving it! A must-see this summer.
Jun 25 - 12:30 PM
Disagree with your assessment in general terms (no spoilers here, TYVM).
Overall, I think this was Cap'n Jack of the Desert.
I give it a 6 out of 10.
Jun 27 - 12:34 AM
I think it will be great. I love disney movies like this.
Jun 25 - 12:14 AM
It looks dreadful from the trailers. And no reviews so far isn't good. But, we'll see.
Jun 24 - 03:35 PM
You guys are all wrong, I saw movie at preview, has very little to do with old series, actually a great action flic with great comedic overtones and a different look at the clash of two cultures and mythologies. This is different and will blow you away.
Jun 23 - 03:08 PM
Hmmmm... Kind of like another series these people made? Pirates of the Caribbean? No, it couldn't be.
Jun 24 - 06:37 AM
The Curse of the Black Pearl was great, the others were shit.
Jun 24 - 07:07 PM
That's one of my favorite fantasy movies. Doesn't change the fact that this movie looks like it's trying too hard to be another one of those.
Jun 25 - 08:17 AM
11% from top critics. Lol.
Jul 3 - 11:09 AM
You ain't cuttin' it with this one, Jack Hicks!
Jul 1 - 04:08 AM
and really how can ya hate a movie that has the cahoonas to put a guy out there with a dead bird on his head and another guy with virtually no starpower at all.
Jun 21 - 05:30 PM
actually i thought the old Clayton Moore series was terrible, the same half hour basically over and over
Jun 21 - 05:27 PM
this will open big and have great legs and will do very good overseas
Jun 21 - 05:26 PM
yeah me too...might be an average movie
Jun 21 - 08:02 AM
Oh you do? Cuz I got a good feeling. Imma see it over and over!
Jun 15 - 12:04 AM
Jun 26 - 07:49 AM
Butch Cavendish couldn't kill me but Disney and j depp sure has destroyed Tonto and I!
May 31 - 06:17 PM
I am going to be skeptical, I grew up watching the lone ranger with my grandpa and I hate it when they make remakes that just fall really short of the original.
Apr 29 - 01:18 AM
Ya got some taste Michael. Consider yourself fortunate!
Jun 29 - 10:34 AM
Fall short Michael? This couldn't fall any shorter if it went behind the starting line. Disney is now looking for some actors that look like Abbott and Costello for Lone Ranger #2.
Jul 2 - 05:38 PM
I think it looks quite good, but I'm still skeptical. And how could this cost 215 mil? It doesn't look like it so far
Apr 21 - 06:48 PM
Anything with Depp's ass in it will cost well over 200 mil.
