I remember when friends of mine were starting to work on The Lone Ranger. I heard of the predicted $200 million price, and I couldn't believe that anyone was actually proposing to spend that kind of money on a cowboy movie. In my experience this sort of idiotic overspending is almost inevitably accompanied by a total lack of concern with the only thing that really counts in a movie- the story.
Well, here we are. I, for one, am very glad indeed to see this bloated specimen of poor management crash and burn. I wish it would lead to more rational thinking at the top, but this is America, after all. So, I guess I'm just venting. Idiots will continue to get millions for running companies into the ground, while the rest of us suffer. At least in this case the suffering is limited to two and a half hours of boredom.
