I am not one of those pc talking dudes - in fact I often am chided by my more standard-liberal friends, to which I tell them how needless and silly it
is to be pc all the time.
That said, I can't believe they remade this extremely ethnocentric story. How does everyone not know that "tonto" is spanish for dumb or stupid?
Here's my dumb indian (native american) sidekick, stereotyped out the ass. It's just in really bad taste considering the ethnic cleansing of our
country's past and all.
It takes more than J. Depp to make a good movie. The stunts, CGI, SFX were fantastic but I still can't even recommend seeing it on the big screen.
Funny how just a title can make or break a movie. As 'The Lone Ranger' this movie was a HUGE disappointment. They made the man in the mask a
bumbling idiot. However, if the movie had been titled, "Johnny Depp as an Indian", it would have been hilarious.
Well, we can't really see, but I'll definitively check you out!
I also see, in a U2U you gave me couple of months ago, that you'll play in "Transcendence". Isn't that the sci-fi movie with Johnny Depp, Morgan
Freeman, and Cillian Murphy, about a scientist putting his mind in a computer?
As for the Lone Ranger, I can't wait to see it. I know people says that it isn't like the original, but it wasn't supposed to be. And as long as
the tribe concerned (Comanche) were happy, I would say that the filmmakers did a good job.
A lot of people rip on this movie but I thought it was entertaining. The last act was amazing. I also liked old tonto retelling the story to a young
boy. That part was kind of sad. This great warrior living the rest of his days as a living exhibit. It reminded me of that other indian, I think his
name is oshi or yoshi, he lived out his days as a living exhibit too. The last of his kind.
