To begin, please pardon the dust. I am slowly, but surely, redesigning and reorganizing Dry Humor Daily.
Now. . . If you watched the Golden Globes last night, you probably saw a preview for this:
First of all . . . WTF?
Second, what are they really pitching? Johnny Depp or the most-likely-very-forgettable-flop-of-a-movie? Allow me to shed some historical light on the subject. If the font size of the main voice actor's name is aaaaaaaaalmost as big as the title of the film, it can't be good. Why? Probably because the same portion of the budget for the movie went towards paying that actor (even though that's a joke, it's probably not far off). That typically means the producers have to cut corners in other places, like screenplay, directing, or marketing. Judging by how early they're advertising Rango, I'll bet they didn't cut the budget in marketing. Get where this is going?
(Don't get me wrong, I actually appreciate Johnny Depp as an actor. I think he acted his resume very well.)
My advice would be to let your five closest friends see it first (no, facebook friends don't count). And if that never happens, you can check this off of your definitely-do-not-see list. (You could probably even skip putting it on your list.)
I do have one good thing to say about Rango, though. Thank goodness it's not in 3-D.
