That's because they made "The Tonto Show" and called it "The Lone Ranger" all the while, it was really "Pirates of the Southwest"

They plan to make it back on their Little House on the Prairie movie coming out this Christmas.

Just a little friendly advice.  Don't make movies that suck and you won't have this problem.

RyansPrivates: Burr: It's not to early to revive Brisco.....

So much this.  That show was what each of the following wanted to be:

1) Wild Wild West
2) Cowboys vs. Aliens
3) Jonah Hex

That being said, Hollywood would probably fark it up.  So better just leave it where it is: a great show that I enjoyed the hell out of.


...which was made in Hollywood.

Hebalo: FuryOfFirestorm: RoyFokker'sGhost: Armie Hammer (aside from the name)

If you think his name is bad, consider that "Armie" is a shorten version of "Armand".

His parents should be thrown in jail for pulling that stupid crap.

Ummmm... Not sure if serious. He was named after his great grandfather, who was a pretty famous oil tycoon.


Dude, his name is Armand Hammer. Arm And Hammer.

Seriously, they could have made Armand his middle name. Naming your kid after an old dead relative is usually not a good idea, unless you want to saddle the poor kid with a name like "Aloysius" or "Murgatroyd"

Night Court predicted this decades ago. There was an episode where the actor who player a Lone Ranger type character was upset about a new, grittier movie that went completely against what his show/movies were about. He threatened to kill himself with a suspended air conditioner. In the end, it all worked out because the movie bombed with audiences, so the old guy won a moral victory.

Even then, someone knew that trying to revive the Lone Ranger was a fool's errand and would lead to failure. Never go against the wisdom of Night Court.

/actually saw Lone Ranger and thought it had a lot going for it
//the train chase at the end was cool
///But I can see why people weren't flocking to it.

They can have the cell right next to Richard Marx's parents.

I want to assume that these are stage names, but who would willing choose either of those names?

Griftin Rubes: But  ... But... Johnny Derp  tied a bird to his head

It's so unfair. Nicholas Cage had a panty on his head in Raising Arizona. And that movie continues to rake it in.

I hear they've cast Depp to play Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Should be a sure-fire winner....

Outrageous Muff: Who knew spending $400m to make a movie based on a program no one under the age of 60 ever watched would be a bad business decision?

Fireproof: acefox1: I'm sure Disney figured that as long as they stayed away from Mars movies they'd avoid another huuuuge financial disaster.

Mars Needs Moms - $140 million dollar loss

John Carter - roughly $150-$200 million dollar loss

The Lone Ranger - another $100 to $200 million dollar loss

That's quite a tradition they have going over there.

Someone in yesterday's thread had the interesting point that the films greenlit by the guy who resigned after the flop of "John Carter" are still coming through the pipeline and will be for several more months.


Interesting fact... the guy who had to resign after John Carter was not the one who greenlit John Carter.
