Quentin Tarantino Lists His Favorite Movies of 2013, Including 'Gravity'...

Published by

Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Taratino's passion for movies is one of his most famous qualities. The former video store clerk turned two time Oscar winner (for Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained) is often accused of stealing from movies high and low. And he has, but it's his ability to blend tastes that make him a master. But for many it's easy to forgive his...

Jerry Bruckheimer And Disney Go Their Separate Ways

Published by

Let's categorize this under random news that we didn't expect to see pop up on a Friday. Jerry Bruckheimer, the world famous producer who's put together blockbuster franchises like Pirates of the Caribbean, is not-so-quietly letting it's contract with Disney expire at the end of the year. But what was the cause of this? They've been working together for years. Some folks have their...

Editorial: Why I Redbox

Published by

This summer has seen a slew of movies that cost over $100 Million dollars hit theaters (some over $200 Million, some possibly near $300 Million), and yet this is the first summer I've noticed that I'm okay with totally skipping a number of the biggest films of the year. This is likely a feeling that's been building for a while, but now it's gotten that much worse. It's not that I won't catch...

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Gets Smaller Because of 'The Lone Ranger'

Pirates of the Caribbean: Johnny Depp and Penélope Cruz
For a movie that's nearly out of theaters, The Lone Ranger has raised a lot of commotion lately. Not only did the filmmakers take a chance to slam critics for the film's failure, but Disney has reported that the film may lose them somewhere around $170-$200 Million dollars. There's definitely fallout from this, and the biggest thing seems to be the fate of...

There aren't too many fans out there of the cartoon or live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films that are thrilled about the Michael Bay interpretation that's in the middle of shooting as we speak. Despite our internet cries for this production to come to a halt, it continues on. At the very least we can be thankful that they have some cool actors onboard, like...

The Lone Ranger: Movie Review

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
On paper, the idea of a new movie version of The Lone Ranger sounds fantastic. It was once a popular western television series created in the 30's in which our hero held onto the same solid moral values that made so many cowboys in westerns such perfect role models. Put that on top of the slow resurgence of westerns and The Lone Ranger movie sounds like a...

'The Lone Ranger' Gets Another Trailer, While Disney Really Hopes You...

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
Well, here’s the fourth trailer for Disney’s The Lone Ranger, the mega-budget film (estimated at $250 million) that cost just about as much as Disney’s John Carter film did last year, and has had nearly as many behind-the-scenes snags and production issues (it’s almost as if the universe is trying to prevent these movies from being made, and the Mickey Mouse...

'The Lone Ranger' New Trailer: Cowboys Of The Caribbean

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
It’s time for yet another trailer/ attempt for Walt Disney Pictures to try and convince the moviegoing populace that watching The Lone Ranger will be a good idea.  And with this newest trailer, it once again just seems like yet another big, bloated and loud $200 million studio project.  Even further, it seems exactly like another Johnny Depp franchise, but with cowboy hats.

'The Lone Ranger' International Trailer Packs a Punch

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
The Lone Ranger comes out this summer, and it's already being targeted as one of 2013's misfires. For whatever ever reason (perhaps critics wanting to take shots at Johnny Depp for the last Pirates movie and for Dark Shadows, but also its inflated budget was made public before the film was shot), it's already getting...

'The Lone Ranger' Super Bowl Trailer: Stop, Johnny Depp, Please Just Stop

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
Well the Super Bowl happened on Sunday night, meaning that it was time for our yearly dose of mega soda, potato chip, and film commercials.  One of the biggest trailers of the evening was the clip for The Lone Ranger, a film that seems worse and worse with every new glimpse of footage that we get.  Check out the trailer below.

'Don Quixote' To Be Retooled By Disney And Johnny Depp

It's hard not to collectively groan when you read a title like that. It's not that we're groaning over the fact that Johnny Depp has another big acting job to do, but it's just that he continues to lean more towards the odd, quirky kind of characters very similar to Captain Jack Sparrow that made him into an international superstar. While some may argue that he's drying up the well when it...

While Armie Hammer, who first came to mainstream attention by playing the Winklevoss twins (or Winklevii, if you like) in David Fincher’s The Social Network, is already set to play an American icon as the titular character in the upcoming The Lone Ranger, he was set to play another famous hero.  Before director George Miller (the Mad...

Yesterday we saw the teaser poster, but today we’ve got the full teaser trailer.  That’s right—our first full look at Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.   And after all the running over budget, the stories of an runaway train of a production, what do we get?  Basically, what we expected: a very slick and polished bit of mainstream...

'The Lone Ranger' Poster Goes Gritty

It’s been a long road for Gore Verbinski’s  Johnny Depp / Armie Hammer-starring update of The Lone Ranger.  Horror stories of an out of control production, control freak director, and massive budget overruns have seemingly made the film appear to be the prototypical mainstream Hollywood bloatfest.  However, recent pictures from the film have begun to generate buzz, and...

Johnny Depp's 'The Thin Man' Delayed By Warner Bros.

Johnny Depp has become something of a Hollywood bad omen of late—first, Dark Shadows tanked in the wake of The Avengers, and not even the man behind Jack Sparrow could save it.  Then, more news from the increasingly trouble Lone Ranger production broke, with stories of an out of control budget and an overly controlling director.  Now, The Thin...

'The Lone Ranger' Has Gone Over Budget (Again)

Proving that Hollywood has not exactly learned its lesson about not pumping more and more mega-millions into already bloated budgets and out of control productions (cough, John Carter, cough cough World War Z), it was leaked today that Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger has gone massively over budget (a budget which itself was slashed months ago).  Now, the Lone...
