Rango was one of my favorite movie of 2011. So as you can see, I really like Rango. I'll start of with the voice acting. Johnny Depp is awesome in the title role and his vocal performance brings life to his character while still having emotion and hilarity to spare. Isla Fisher is perfect as Beans, she brings just the right amount of sincerity and comedy to her character that is necessary for the role. Also, Ray Winstone, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighly, and Ned Beatty are all fantastic. I'd have to say that the animation in this movie is the best I've ever seen. Rango really is a treat for the eyes. The plot is awesome, and the dialog is hilarious and just plain wicked. The script is smart and clever, and the screen play is one of the best ever. My favorite scene is the canyon battle where there being chased by the bad guys riding on bats with machine guns and dynamite. I just picked up Rango on DVD at Best Buy the other day, and I would highly recommend making this purchase. Not only does the DVD include a wealth of bonus material, but it also includes an all new extended version with an all new ending! All in all, Rango has the comedy, action, creativity, animation, epicness and cleverness to make an A++ movie.
Wow, here's probably the stupidest movie that I've EVER seen. I mean come on people, The Rock in a tutu??? That's just plain weird, not funny in the slightest. First off, let me talk about the script. One of the worst ever, I mean the dialog was just pitiful - The Rock tells his girlfriend's daughter "I'm the Tooth fairy" and she replies "No you're not". What kind of garbage is that? Also, the screenplay - awful. For example The Rock tells his girlfriend's son that he's too tired to practice with him and that the kid will never be a rock star, how does the kid respond? By having an emotional breakdown and smashing his guitar on the driveway. Again, what kind of garbage is that mess? The acting was awful, and the relationships between the characters felt very unrealistic, and really unnatural. The characters were all very stereotyped and one-note, and they felt very rushed and had literally no development. The worst thing about this movie was the plot, it borrowed obviously, and way too much, and the "jokes" along the way were very clichéd, unoriginal, and just not at all funny. Also, what was up with that dumb rivalry between The Rock and that other, younger hockey player that kept showing him up? Seriously, if somebody is your rival, do you turn invisible, go out on the hockey rank, beat him up, (and in the process prevent your own team from scoring), and make him bark like a dog by putting a pill in his mouth? Wow, I don't think so. So really, if you're looking for a great "family film" please avoid this garbage at all cost, as it's just a cliché ridden, badly-made, unfunny, piece of crap.
