Arnie Hammer sounds like a porn star's name.

I'll probably still go see if it if I have nothing better to do.

You could just tell it was going to be shiat with how hard they were playing it up in the media. It's like they don't get that with even all the advertising money and Rolling Stone covers in the world that if your product is shiat people aren't going to pay for it.

I've read and seen that it plays out as the tale told from the perspective of the side kick Tonto, kind of like Big Trouble in Little China. And honestly if that's the case, that's enough for me to plunk cash to see.

I'll probably end up renting it...or, even more likely, checking it out from my library when they inevitably get it.

Just wait until his "Django" sequel, in which he will appear in blackface.

This movie looks bad and anyone who sees it should feel bad.

This is a movie that features Johnny Depp wearing a bird on his head the whole time.

Do you realize that for a few months or so, Johnny Depp showed up to work every day and someone put a bird on his head and they filmed it and someone said, "Hey, that was great! Be back tomorrow morning so we can put the bird back on your head"?
 
2013-07-02 10:38:45 AM
Despite the half-dozen trailers, I have no clue what the movie is about besides it having as many explosions as Transformers. But I suppose that's good enough for most people.

thanks, up til now I was quite perplexed as to why they cast a high-profile A-list actor as Tonto and a relative unknown for the titular role

I do the AMC rewards program, so I'll probably end up using my stubs 10 dollar reward since I know between the summer movie seasons this year I'll be in the theater for at least 100 bones of tickets

America, where people no longer watch movies for entertainment but to have their "professional" critique posted on a website.

"Grandpa?"
"Yes, dear?"
"What was the highlight of your life?"
"Well dear, I used to critique movies and have my comments posted online. You see, that is what people used to do way back when to feel superior than others."

The complaints I heard on the radio were along the lines of Johnny Depp being too close to "red faced".

If that was the only butt hurt the guy walked away with I am into watching it.

Does this really surprise anyone?  The only thing anyone has had to say about this movie for the past year is "OMG! Look how Johnny Depp is dressed!"

Yep, Carpenter envisioned the film as an action movie told from the sidekicks perspective. The studio forced him back to reshoot that first scene with Egg Shen and the lawyer along with some other changes because they didn't get it.

2013-07-02 10:49:51 AM
God this movie looks like a trainwreck, literally.

I'm in my 40s and I have no interest in the Lone Ranger, that was way before my time. I remember the 80s version starring Klinton Spilsbury (look it up!) but that tanked because no one could remember him then either.

Who the fark is the Lone Ranger? Does he have a nemesis? What's his point? Why do I care?

This seems over simplified. If anything, Big Trouble is the story of a man who THINKS he's hero, while his 'sidekick' does most of the asskicking.

Having said that, it's certainly not told from the sidekick's POV.
 
2013-07-02 10:58:56 AM
I previously thought this movie would flop even with good reviews. Now that its being reviewed as a turd I'm sure it will flop.

Watch the DVD commentary and listen to the directors own words on the matter, it only appears like you think it does because the studio forced his hand to play up Burton's character. There was a lot of film left on the floor that played it very differently.

Meh.

Critics getting paid not to like things and saying witty puns about it.

If I listened to critics, I'd never watch another movie, so fark 'em. I'll make up my own mind.

FUN FACT--Yesterday I learned that John Reid (The Lone Ranger) is Brit Reid's (The Green Hornet) great uncle.

/well, a fun fact about fiction, I guess
 
2013-07-02 11:15:36 AM
When my girlfriend and I first saw the trailer, we were both shocked by how Johnny Depp as Tonto sounded EXACTLY like Rob Schneider's awful "Indian" character from Adam Sandler's Bedtime Stories, and really, I knew then that absolutely nothing good could come from that comparison.
 
2013-07-02 11:17:00 AM
I'll wait to see what the consensus here is.  If lots of people say it's terrible, I'll defend it.  If it turns out that people enjoyed it, I'll call them stupid.  Or sheeple.

That was down played due to the Lone Ranger and the Green Hornet being bought buy two studios. But in the original concept, Yes, They were related which was really neat.

Is there a "director's cut" anywhere? (If so, is it any good?)

// the movie, if not the character

I just watched Oz and it was farking awful. The acting was awful and it dragged on and on. That has a 59% on RT and Lone Ranger has a 21%. I can't imagine its worse than Oz.

Not sure about a director's cut, but the DVD commentary is hysterical. Carpenter and Russell start on a case of beer and get hammered over the course of the commentary. At one point, Russell starts talking about his kid and going to hockey practice with him.

You realize that you're talking about a movie that doesn't exist, right? Regardless of the original intent or what was left on the cutting-room floor, BTILC was *not* told from the side-kick's view.

The blu-ray has some scenes reedited back in along with commentary track but sadly no

And no, you are not the only one who liked Green Hornet, it was a fun silly movie

A reviewer I read said that Depp just played the part of Captain Jack Sparrow as a Native American. If that's true then this will be a hard pass from me and an epic fail.  If you're a white dude playing a Native American you better be respectful.  Otherwise it comes across as playing an African American in blackface.  I was afraid this would happen when I read that Depp would be playing Tonto.

Isn't Johnny Depp actually part Cherokee Indian? And even a little more than the "my great-great uncle seven times removed may have been Native American" but actually it's pretty strong in his bloodline?

Wasn't World War Z suffering a pretty low score before it actually came out and more people saw it?  It's hovering at a near %70 rating rate now.

I'm guessing this may go up as well.

/I liked WWZ, I was glad I knew going in that it had nothing to do with the book, so I didn't expect anything other than an action zombie flick.  Viewed in that light it was decent enough.

So...because a movie is told in a similar fashion as another movie you like, you're saying that makes it likely to be of similar quality? Despite it being made by completely different people in a completely different era in a completely different genre?
