Apologies for ruining the episode. Thought I was safe as it was last week's episode. I won't post again.
I'm guessing your talking about The Grove? Did not see that one coming..........
The Lone Ranger - not the complete catastrophe that I was expecting but still a bit of a mess. Chief Jack Sparrow's routine is getting tiresome and he has no chemistry with the Ranger, who incidentally is utterly useless until the final 10 minutes. The tone is also all over the place, with kid friendly jokes getting mixed with a baddie who eats people's hearts and one part where they literally transition from a comedic cart chase to a load of people getting massacred by a gatling gun. Confusingly there are also several scenes with seemingly mystical or supernatural powers, despite being told quite clearly in the middle of the film that Tonto is making it all up and is just delusional. It's also far too long, with the older Tonto scenes in particular completely pointless.
That said, it looks gorgeous and the final scene is very well done. It's also very hard not to raise a smile once the iconic music starts playing as well.
Also just watched Warm Bodies, which is a zombie film about a zombie who falls in love with a human. Now you'd be forgiven for thinking it's some kind of awful Twilight knockoff but it's actually very well made and breathes new life (no pun intended) into a stale genre. The twist hewre is that the zombies are slowly regaining their humanity, and are caught between humans and too far gone skeletal zombies who want them dead. It's also nice to see a zombie film which actually has SPOILER
a straight up happy ending, since having everyone die or barely survive a rule of the genre
