We took the grandkids to see “Rango.” They loved it and so did we. Terrific scriptwriting!! While I am not a fan of books about animals with human attributes and capabilities, movies of that genre don’t bother me at all. In fact, they are usually quite funny and moralistic. (Could animals with ascorbic wit, “bad guys” who actually look like “bad guys,” metaphors of real life, and adult humor be a good way to get people to think and act better?)  

Depp’s Rango couldn’t be any better. What a character! A naive, lonely lizard thrown into harsh reality, he uses his imagination for the good of others. The lack of water is the big issue in the western desert town of Dirt. Water is its currency. The greedy mayor is instigating a diabolical plan, but Rango finally saves the day in a roundabout way. He, along with…Well, you’ll have to see for yourself.

I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border.
