Johnny Depp as Tonto in The Lone Ranger
I really do understand that making movies is a business. I get that if you make a movie based on a known property, you’re more likely to get a big return on your investment. I’m with you so far. What I don’t get is why there is a bird on Johnny Depp’s head or why The Lone Ranger is called “The Lone Ranger.”
“There’s three of you – you’re not exactly ‘lone,’ are you?”
I just don’t know about this. Who in the hell would want to see a Lone Ranger movie? The Lone Ranger went off the air in 1957, and it’s not as though the world is screaming for this flick… I don’t get it. Well, at least Barry Pepper is in this movie – that guy kicks ass.
The Lone Ranger belongs on vintage lunchboxes – not in theaters.
