Lone Ranger - ignore the bitching...

Postby Jan Van Quirm » Sat Aug 10, 2013 3:35 pm

... it's really good & Johnny Depp's Tonto and dead crow headgear is even better than his Sparrow. Plus you find out what Kemo Sabe really means :lol:

Saw it last night and for a nearly 3 hour film the time flew by with well-paced action and yelp out loud twists and comic turns - even the bits with Helena Bonham-Carter :roll:

PS - Silver's really fantastic! :twisted:

I never listen to whining online about movies. mainly because people will bitch about anything and more often others will join in just to fit in.especially when talking about more recent bigger movies.

3 hours eh? It's on my movie list but I don't think I'd bother going to the flicks to see it.

There are some spectacular stunts in it Sister J, (mainly involving trains) which I suspect is where all the bad press has been coming from over the post-production delays, as they looked pretty complex to stage, so I suppose the CGI may have presented probs. :shifty:

These would probably look better on a big screen if you're really into SFX, but as it's not really that much different to Bond films or similar, I expect it'd work as well for you on a TV screen too - at least they appear not to have bothered with a 3D version which I think are a rip off anyway for most films. :roll:

Boing! Back up to the top with this. The DVD of this just fell into my shopping trolley this morning. I liked it a lot, especially Silver and those rabbits! Reckon they're closely related to Radagast the Brown's sledge rabbits :lol:
I wonder if there's a sequel planned since this was a prequel to one of my childhood favourites and there's a lot of mileage left.

Saw the film recently as well. Very fun film. and I loved the use of the William Tell Overture in it. it seemed weird at first, hearing it in a rather serious setting, after how it's been used all these years. but they made it work.
