"The Lone Ranger" by Yojimbo

A bumbling lawyer left for dead by a gang of ruthless outlaws is rescued by an enigmatic Comanche warrior and becomes a masked vigilante.

Quite why Disney thought that resurrecting a TV show that had stopped running before their parents were born would be irresistible to the children of today I'm not quite sure, but they no doubt assumed that the combination of Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski would be money in the bank. But rather than Cowboys Of The Caribbean, what we have in The Lone Ranger is a post modern, comic western that shows not one iota of the qualities that made their previous collaboration work so well. Johnny Depp's dubious casting for the part of Tonto notwithstanding, he displays none of the charisma and charm of Jack Sparrow, instead relying solely on computer-assisted …

"Never take off the mask"

It seems like ages since I've seen a western. I'm immediately teleported back in time when I was still a little kid. There was almost on a weekly base somewhere an old western on the TV. Usually on Friday afternoons you could see one on a German channel with Roy Rogers, after a cartoon of "Schweinchen Dick" or some slapstick movie starring Buster Keaton. And in the weekends it was always somewhere late at night on ARD, ZDF or WDR. My dad thought there was only one kind of genre movie worth to watch ... indeed Westerns. Everybody was stubbornly silent about the fact that those guys walked around in that time with real crappy guns and probably couldn't hit an elephant at 2 meters. I promised myself that I'd never see a western again... or someone should force …

The Long Ranger (cuz it's too dam long)

This movie has a lot going for it but by god it wants you to hate it anyway. To be honest, my review is for a two star movie but I enjoyed it more than I though I would so that's what the half star is for.
All the problems with this movie stem from the fact that it is too f**king long and the writers (same duo behind POTC film series) clearly had no idea how to fill up the inconceivable 2.5 hour running time. Whose idea was to make this two and a half hours long?!?!?! If one was to take the first act and the finale (the best parts of the film) and make a movie out of that, they'd be alright but they just had to **** this up anyway, didn't they?
Johnny Depp is channeling all his previous roles but he looks like he's enjoying himself for once. Armie Hammer seriously got screwed over by …

The only saving grace is going to be if international numbers can save it from being a complete disaster. One thing's for certain - it's not going to spawn any franchise. I haven't seen this yet, but I've relegated it to Netflix status rather than a theater-worthy experience.

I can sleep well tonight, now that the project is back on track with a lowered budget. Seriously, though, I'm glad the big issues were worked through and the project was not shelved.

I forgot about Pirates. So one success in the last 10 years? Maybe a studio with more adult success will pick it up, that will be my hope.

Disney took a chance with the Pirates films, and they turned out just fine. Even if they are afraid westerns don't have as much appeal, it seems like the wrong move. I have a feeling it will be picked up.
