Very offended by the input offered from the film’s stars, here. Critics hated the movie, but that doesn’t mean that their influence can be blamed for a film’s lack of success, or even that the reported trouble of production swayed them into making their opinions beforehand. This is one of my big pet peeves about the perception of film critiquing.August 7, 2013 at 2:22 pm #108377
Johnny Deep is way too overdue for a Razzie or more. He’s become a terrible, god-awful, Adam Sandler type of actor who should never make another movie again. Of course it’s easier to blame the critics, but the main point is that he just really can’t play a normal character anymore. He really needs all thet dress and make up? Or it’s just another “coming out, I’m gay” story?August 7, 2013 at 2:22 pm #108378
“Critics keep crying for original movies, you make one and they don’t like it, so what can I tell you,”
LMAO this quote. I cant even believe it. There is NOTHING original about this movie.
It flopped because people don’t know or care about TLR, Depp being in red-face is tacky and offensive, Depp’s shtick is growing tired, and the movie looked like crap. It’s John Carter all over again.August 7, 2013 at 2:47 pm #108379
I can understand the frustration, but the reason why it flopped was because there was zero interest or curiosity for the film. No one knows or cares about The Lone Ranger, and the fact that Depp portrayed an offensive caricature just added to the helping heap of reasons not to watch it, not because of the critics.
If you’re attempting to make a grab-cash movie like this, backlash from critics is to be expected.August 7, 2013 at 4:57 pm #108380
I wouldn’t blame the critics. Personally, I had no interest in seeing this movie because it looked long and boring.August 7, 2013 at 5:24 pm #108381
A big problem was Depp! Just too much of the same! It’s one thing for Jack Sparrow to be popular but trying to do that over and over had lead to audiences getting tired of it! Jack Sparrow Vampire Jack Sparrow Mad Hatter. Really enough!August 7, 2013 at 5:43 pm #108382
^and Jack Sparrow again.
Yea, the critics can’t be blamed for this; speaking personally, I don’t pay attention to the critics too much, I saw Identity Theft and thought that was a riot…this film I wasn’t interested in the slightest, and the previews didn’t help mattersAugust 7, 2013 at 6:46 pm #108383
When Johnny Depp showed up in the trailer looking almost exactly like Jack Sparrow, but in Native American garb, and speaking nearly the same way, I knew this wasn’t going to be good.August 7, 2013 at 11:11 pm #108384
It’s beyond me why Depp wouldn’t realize the shtick grows old..
