I don't know if any of you liked the film of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", starring Johnny Depp. I didn't, though I don't think the problem was Depp but rather a basic mismatch between filmmaker Terry Gilliam's showy visual stylizations and the raw material, which could have used a more naturalistic treatment. Anyway, I'm not sure if it's good or bad news that Johnny Depp will be playing Hunter S. Thompson again in a new film of "The Rum Diary"
. I guess I'll make up my mind after I see the new "Willy Wonka".
