The Lone Ranger - Film Poster

In the 1930s, an elderly Tonto tells a young boy the tale of John Reid, the Lone Ranger. An idealistic lawyer, he rides with his brother and fellow Texas Rangers in pursuit of the notorious Butch Cavendish. Ambushed by the outlaw and left for dead, John Reid is rescued by the renegade Comanche, Tonto, at the insistence of a mysterious white horse and offers to help him to bring Cavendish to justice. Becoming a reluctant masked rider with a seemingly incomprehensible partner, Reid pursues the criminal against all obstacles. However, John and Tonto learn that Cavendish is only part of a far greater injustice and the pair must fight it in an adventure that would make them a legend.

Philip French review – Guardian – 11th August 2013
Johnny Depp is terrific as Tonto in an action-packed, if overlong, movie that focuses on the crime-fighting duo’s early years

Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp make for an appealing pair of leads, but they’re not enough to make up for The Lone Ranger’s bland script, bloated length, and blaring action overkill.

Transcendence - Film poster

Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed-to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.

Some poor ratings amongst the reviewers but an interesting analysis here by Observer film critic Mark Kermode Sunday 27 April 2014

“Big on conceptual ambition, this handsomely mounted technophobic fable is surprisingly short on crowd-pleasing explosions (the comparative lack of eye-popping action perhaps proving its downfall in the multiplexes). And while it may wear the clothes of an A-list 21st-century fantasy, at heart this is a post-Westworld dystopian B-picture about the future-retro collision between man and technology – a film built upon grand ideas rather than grand spectacle, and all the better for it.”
