I predicted this would bomb and it is bombing hard. Even with Depp's Tonto as the focus of the movie no ONE GIVES A SHIAT about the Ranger in this day and age. Had they made this movie for a tenth of the money they MIGHT have had a sleeper hit on their  hands but this thing cost a quarter of a BILLION dollars. It is NEVER going to make its money back.  Disney should have written this off years ago.

lack of warmth: Mugato: Kaybeck: stuhayes2010: Why Depp? Couldn't they find an out of work Native American actor to play tonto?

Yes, because people will be lining up around the block to see Native American actor no one's heard of as Tonto and a guy you also haven't heard of whose name sounds like a brand of baking soda as the Lone Ranger.

That had to be an intentionally stupid question.

However, I am put off by them using a very stupid actor to play Tonto.  Although, they may have looked up the spanish meaning for tonto and realized Depp is perfect for the role.

/In Mexico, Tonto is the guy seen driving a Nova


It looked like he was phoning it in this time. Goofy, exaggerated facial expressions from Pirates and his "Indian" voice sounds like like his Hunter S Thompson.

They cast a relative unknown as the Lone Ranger and needed someone to carry the movie.  There aren't a lot of authentic native actors who you could look at for that.  Like... going by http://www.imdb.com/list/R0EAcZ5CP2A/  for example, you've got a bunch of nobodies from Twilight and a crazy-hot girl.

http://www.imdb.com/list/2eje60Y5XLk/  Here you've got a bunch of ancient dudes and Adam Beach who I actually recognize though I've never seen one of his films.

And like... what would be authentic enough for you?  Does he have to be full blooded?  Does he have to come from a tribe that would be local to the area the film is set in?  Cause Beach is Canadian.  Would it still be an outrage if HE was Tonto?  How close does he need to be from before its no longer terrible white people treating a minority like they're all the same?  How bout if he's half-blood but he looks very European?  Is it, "Red Face" if they use makeup to make that guy look more like the pop culture image of a native American?

He's a pretentious twat-waffle?


Eh, he showed up at a kid's school as Jack Sparrow on request. I can look past the fact that he loves his counter-culture. So do a lot of folks; they just don't have the access that Depp does.

There will probably be a sequel.
Anything you wrote after this sentence doesn't matter to the studio.

I like him in a lot of things but I kind of thought of huim personally like that from interviews.  Then I saw life is too short episode with him.
He was totally mocking himself, I don't think he takes himself that seriously.

Just got back from seeing the movie.  It was long and it was bad.  Even Helena Bonham Carter's jacked up boobs couldn't save it.

No, because then they couldn't have cast Helena Bonham-Carter in the movie.  She and Depp are almost as bad as John Cusack dragging his sister to all his auditions.

There's some of that, but my reaction is to just roll my eyes at the harmless oddball.
With so many other Baldwin-like meltdowns, Lohanish death wishes, Charlie Sheen shenanigans and sports figure drug/crime incidents out there I can't hate a celebrity simply because they're nuttier than a fruit cake.  And I've enjoyed a good deal of his work.

  He's always seems way too much of an image conscious star farker to me.   He's always got his arm drapped around Keith Richards on the cover of Rolling Stone, or always linked to cult counter culture figures like HST.    This is a guy who REALLY wants everyone to know that he's really cool and he hangs around only the coolest people.   I used to see him all the time around Austin in the learly 90s hanging out with Gibby Haynes when the Butthole Surfers were the coolest band in the world.  I wonder how many phone calls Haynes gets from Depp these days.

I've liked him in films, namely Ed Wood and Gilbert Grape, but his batting average is not good.  Even Nicholas Cage had had Moostruck, Raising Arizona and Adaptation.

It could be the best movie ever made, and all I will ever think about is the guy who pointed out on here, yesterday, that every day for a few months, Johnny Depp went to work and someone put a bird on his head.
