The Lone Ranger #25 review header image

The Lone Ranger #25
Written by Ande Parks
Art by Esteve Polls
Colors by Marc Rueda
Letters by Simon Bowland
Covers by Francesco Francavilla
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: June 18, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #25 is, sadly, the last issue of this fantastic series. But, boy, does it go out with a bang!!!

Writer Ande Parks once again delivers a great, new, yet classic Lone Ranger story. It’s got all the hallmarks of the classic western hero. Throughout his run, he’s made this comic more than just a comic book. He’s brought life and REAL feelings to the readers of this title. He’s brought inspiration through this book. And, he’s showed us all that there is a hero in every single one of us, as long as we stand strong and do the right thing. In short, he’s turned The Lone Ranger into more than a great western comic; he’s given us a role model. A man that we can all aspire to be.

Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #24 proves why this comic book series is the BEST western book out there, bar none. If you’re interested in the character of the Lone Ranger or have a fondness for the western genre at all, you need to pick this book up.

Twenty-four issues in and Ande Parks proves that he’s still got it. In fact, he’s always had it, and never lost it. This issue is almost like Die Hard on a train, except better (sorry Under Siege 2). It’s filled with action and suspense and there’s a mystery going on that is partly revealed, and most of all, it’s what a Lone Ranger comic should be.

What an odd and oddly-wonderful Oscars. As the 86th Academy Awards winds down, we reflect on the shocking wins, disappointing losses, and memorably unusual moments. But here we focus on the Disney elements, whether prominent or more subtle, that persisted throughout the show.

Frozen thawed the cooler hearts of some voters, scoring it two wins. And the other Disney nominees? Not so lucky. Yet the influence of the Mouse could be felt throughout the theatre. Let’s analyze Disney at the Oscars 2014.

Golden Raspberry

As is tradition, the 2014 Razzie nominations were announced today just ahead of the Oscar nominations, which will be announced tomorrow. The 34th annual celebration of the year’s worst movies, directors, actors, and actresses highlights some of great missteps Hollywood has taken this past year, and boy are there some big ones.

The list includes oft-repeating nominees for the annual spectacle, including Adam Sandler, Tyler Perry, Lindsay Lohan, and Sylvester Stallone, who has received his 31st acting nomination for a trio of performances this year. Worst films of the year include Disney’s box office bomb The Lone Ranger, Grown Ups 2, and A Medea Christmas.

You can check out all the nominees and their respective categories here below.

The Walt Disney Studios has once again impressed Hollywood with the news that it has topped the $4 billion mark (worldwide) for the first time ever. 2013 saw the releases of numerous tentpole pictures under the Disney brand, including films from Marvel and Pixar. But is this strategy, which appears almost go-big-or-go-home at times, positive?

The numbers tell a story, but so do the quality of the pictures. In many ways Disney beat other studios that suffered from major financial failures (most notably, Sony, which saw disappointing figures for many of its summer releases). But even with one box office bomb (sorry, The Lone Ranger), Disney made major strides. Let us explore what worked, and what could be improved in the future.
