My husband does too, and he's looking forward to the movie I think. He never saw the one from 1980 or 1981, and never watched them as a kid on TV, so he thinks whatever they put out is going to be OK as long as there are no singing cowboys. I told him his Westerns standards weren't very high. LOL!
Nope... Not gonna waste my time or money on this thing. I am not sure what t is suppose to be but it certainly isn't the Lone Ranger!!!
That's the thing about this film. It might turn out to be a really good Western but it isn't The Lone Ranger. I don't believe that iconic characters always need to change with the times, something makes them iconic, and by definition that is unchanging.
And I still carry a grudge for what Depp and Burton did to Dark Shadows.
I was thinking the same thing while watching the trailer. Great new Western movie, but is it really The Lone Ranger? Looked more like a Tonto movie to me w/ a cowboy sidekick. I don't mind updating the style
or production of the movie, but why does the character need to change? I assume the movie makers are fans of the character, otherwise why make a movie? So why are they trying to change what they initially liked? Defeats the purpose to me.
I never really watched Dark Shadows, but saw enough previews for the show as a kid to grasp the general feeling and nuance of the show. I almost keeled over when I saw the trailer for the Depp "movie." I just don't get why everything has be turned into Beetlejuice!
