    Honestly, The Lone Ranger hasn't been relevant for decades, teen boys and 20 something guys have never heard of him. They drive the box office, this was a misfire from the get go

    Pirates of the Caribbean was such a huge hit because every little snot nosed kid has been on the ride since 1967/1973

    Nah....if done right Lone Ranger could be awesome. No fucking way should a Lone Ranger movie cost a quarter of a billion dollars to make. It didnt help that all the reviews said they made the Lone Ranger a bumbling idiot. You can't have a bad ass hero be a bumbling tard.

    It never should of cost that much to make. What the fuck was going on with that movie?? Were Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer wiping their asses with 100 dollar bills while filming??

    You know a version of Lone Ranger is bad when all the reviews say silver is the only one that isn't a idiot and seems to know what they are doing. :ufacepalm:

    It's too old of a franchise to resurrect. I remember as a kid, it bored the shit out of me.

    I guess Disney didn't learn this lesson the last time when John Carter died. You can't bring back some old franchise (be it book or show) that wasn't that interesting in the first place, stick some unknown in the main role, then just throw a shitload of cash at it and expect everyone to care.

    From all accounts John carter was really good but Disney fucked up the marketing. They dropped the mars part in the name to bring in the girls and caused a confoosion with the general public about what the movie was about.

    speaking of things bombing looks like another dio thread that will be lucky to get to a second page. You should post 1000's of lone ranger pics bro. That would make this thread a winner for sure.

    Sure, because quantity posts (like 16, one-word off-topic posts between two people arguing with each other) equals "quality." :rolleye:
