At the movies: The Lone Ranger.
review I write is published that a consensus between the exhibition industry, 'conventional wisdom,' and angry kids at the mall develops that casts aside not only a film I dig, but several points that I specifically tried to emphasize. It's sad, because it's now apparent that this is going to be 2013's John Carter of Mars- that is, an interesting, overlong phantasmagoria that will get used as a bludgeon (see also the piece I wrote about Heaven's Gate last month). Anyway, give me a read if you like, and see the film- it's so much better than any of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
