Cameras vs. Smartphones...

Hi -Yo Silver!

My son and I went to see The Lone Ranger at the cinema yesterday.  With Johnny Depp playing the part of Tonto, "sidekick" to Armie Hammer's John Reid, I went not knowing exactly what to expect other than I knew I would probably enjoy myself.

For me personally, my favorite part of the movie was when "William Tell Overture" began to play as the action started to really kick in.  I so wanted to jump and cheer.  However, my son told me to be quiet because we were not the only people in the theater.  haha

I do recommend you see the movie.  I give it 3 1/2 stars.
