Just another reason not to go see it.

Bad enough that the new Superman spoke out against humans using Earths resources in the latest movie, now the Lone Ranger is against guns. Like the article says, kids are going to see this, and this stuff poisons their minds about America.

Yeah, I noticed that too about the Superman movie.  One thing though, Jor-El was pointing out the arrogance of the leadership.  They knew what they were doing by "harvesting the core" would end in disaster, but did it anyway because it was easy.  They were too lazy to advance their civilization and in fact had regressed it.  To me it showed the absolute folly of unbridled arrogance.

The good news is... not many people actually are seeing this. It's a flop.

Fortunately, the original is now in public domain... and thus free to listen to and watch.

For someone so concerned about disaster you would think he would have led the battle with General Zod away from Metropolis and out over the ocean. Instead the fight results in multiple square miles of total destruction in the city with many buildings destroyed and skyscrapers toppled over, and countless cars and people crushed. The death toll would have been 100 times that of 9/11.  That movie broke many taboos, starting with Lois Lane's interview with Clark Kent knowing he had super powers from the start.

Well, that's the fault of the writers, producers, and director wanting to make lots of CGI destruction.

The 1978 Superman with Christopher Reeve was far superior.

There is absolutely NOTHING stopping people like Clint Eastwood or Jon Voight from producing/directing a blockbuster movie on the Lone Ranger.....the WAY it was originally made...without all the political correctness bullsh*t.

I could even have fun casting the actors.....and it sure wouldn't be Johnny Depp as Tonto, when you have somebody like Lou Diamond Phillips.   LOL! 

Lone Ranger?  Hell....he wears a mask...so anybody would do.

I'm not familiar with it at all.

I just cannot stand any more of Johnny Depp in roles and personalities the same as Pirates of the Caribbean.  The Peter Pan...make believe crap.  He's great...don't get me wrong.    But enough of Jack Sparrow, please?

DC... here is a list of his films

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gore_Verbinski

snip..........

After completing a short film, The Ritual (which he both wrote and directed), Verbinski made his feature film directing debut with Mouse Hunt. The film was a hit globally and he soon followed up the success with the action/comedy The Mexican, starring Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt. The film received mixed reviews, and performed modestly at the box-office, earning $68 million domestically which was quite meager considering its star power (it was technically successful due to its moderately low $38 million budget). Verbinski followed it up with the horror film remake The Ring (2002), which struck gold globally, grossing well over $200 million worldwide. Verbinski also had a directorial hand in The Time Machine that year, temporarily taking over for an exhausted Simon Wells.[citation needed] Verbinski directed some of the underground Morlock sequences[citation needed] and is given a Thanks to credit in the film.

He then directed the very successful Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl which earned over $600 million at the international box office. This was his first collaboration with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who he has since collaborated with on several other movies. His next film was The Weather Man which starred Nicolas Cage. The film received mixed to positive reviews but was a box office failure. In March 2005 he started filming the sequels Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. The former then became his biggest success so far, becoming the third film ever to gross over $1 billion at the international box office. His future project will be an adaption of William Monahan's novel Light House: A Trifle, which is a story about an artist running away from the Mafia who hides in a lighthouse, in which kooky characters live. He will also direct Butterfly, a psychological thriller about a man trying to drive his wife insane.

Verbinski was also set to direct a film for Universal based on the video game, BioShock.[3] However he has since been replaced by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo as director, but he will still produce.[4] Verbinski announced in July the film had an R-rating,[5] although it had initially been planned with an PG-13 rating.[6] He has been announced to produce and direct a remake of the film Clue, based on the board game.[7]
