2 summer flops in a row for Depp…go crawling back to the Pirates movies

# 2

What no “bomb” title for the Lone Tonto. If that was anybody else, it would be the main headline. Give up the paint job Depp and act.

I saw the new Superman movie and enjoyed it a great deal. I might go see The Lone Ranger but the poor reviews, low box office, and Johnny’s bizarre look as Tonto are killing it.

Where’s that crazy “Johnny Depp Fan” now?
Why isn’t she here screaming obscenities to everyone who dared to stay away from this BOMB!
LOL!

HILARIOUS!

I’m here to defend Johnny Depp…and I wondering where are his REAL FANS NOW TOO?…I SAW THE MOVIE AND IT WAS AWESOME..AND I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE WHO TRASH THE MOVIE IN COMMENTS ACTUALLY SAW IT ? I BET NO ONE BECAUSE IF YOU DID YOU WOULDN’T .This film is very good and all those bad reviews are so UNFAIR WITH JOHNNY AND WITH THE MOVIE TOO!:

AND TALKING ABOUT MOVIES THAT BOMB..WHY DON’T YOU TALK ABOUT BRAD PITT’S MOVIE,WILL SMITT’S MOVIE AND LEO DI CAPRIO’S MOVIE …THEY WEREN’T NUMBER ONE EITHER!!! SO DON’T SAY BULLSHIT! THEY ARE NOTHING ANYWAY,ONLY ORDINARY ACTORS!

And I don’t like to talk about other actors ..I don’t care about them but when you need to say something real..you have to say it! In the other hand I hope Johnny can survive to all this bad things that happen to him these day and WAIT a bit for a new movie…I’d like he take a long holidays and think about all this and take better choices to do in the future..I wish him the best like always.

Where are his real fans?
Well, they certainly aren’t in the theater watching this pile of garbage.
