"Rango" tells the story of a neurotic chameleon (voiced by Johnny Depp) who ends up mistaken for a tough hero in the Wild West town of Dirt. Unfortunately for the citizens of Dirt - and for Rango himself - the chameleon is not the strong man he seems to be.

 

The movie recently won the Best Animated Feature Oscar at the Academy Awards, and it truly deserves that distinction. "Rango" is a departure for director Gore Verbinski, who most recently was shooting the live-action "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies. It's a really beautiful movie, with hyper-real creatures including an outlaw snake voiced by Bill Nighy.
