When I heard that Johnny Depp was going to be in a remake of the Lone Ranger I was excited. I remember watching reruns of the show with my dad as a kid, and in my mind the Lone Ranger was the first super hero. When I found out Depp was Tonto and not the Lone Ranger, I was skeptical. When I found out Armie Hammer was the Lone Ranger, I thought well it could be good.

The animated movie Rango is definitely not just for kids—it is an enjoyable movie for any age. Johnny Depp does the voice for the main character, a chameleon named Rango who by accident ends up in the desert town of Dirt, a relic of the Wild West. Seeing this as his chance to have the exciting life he’d always imagined, he reinvents himself as a tough hero and quickly becomes their sheriff.

If you love suspense movies with an Alfred Hitchcock feel, than The Tourist is for you. Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie star in this wonderful romantic thriller. I think Depp was perfectly cast in a role I could totally see Cary Grant in, had it been a Hitchcock film.
