It was just yesterday that I found myself bound up in an overstuffed theatre chair, sipping watered down pop and nibbling on some sugar flavoured food colouring. The theatre was no different from any other, but the movie was a gem. I loved Pirates of the Carribean! I mean yes, it was disney, so of course there was a few chessy one liners, but the story, the effects, the acting, the cinematogrpahy; I thought it all was great.
So the point of this thread is simply that I'd liek to hear your opinions too! As it takes all kinds to mak the world go round I'm sure there will be a few bad reviews alongside the good but either way, I'd like to know what you all think!
Personally, my favourite part of the entire picture, was Jack Sparrow! Johnny Depp mastered the rolled beautifully! He should be a legend! :D

I haven't seen it yet, so I'll wait until I see it before I vote.
But I have to say, I was skeptical at first (I mean, come on, a movie based on a ride? Even if it's a cool ride. Usually it's the other way around!). But I saw an add or two, and it actually looks really cool. Somewhat dark, the effects look good but not overdone, and it has some great actors (Depp, Bloom, Rush)...
Last but not least... PIRATES! I love anything with pirates.
So I'm seeing it in a couple days, but I think I'll like it. I'll vote soon!

-Can't wait to see the movie.

LMFAO Lif! Yes the Cukes and Toms have been to Boston in the Fall and beyond... err, everyone but Lif - Don't ask!
And I agree with you whole-hearted Agent, when I first saw the add I was muchos excited. I've always been the pirates kind of girl, you know. Like eveyr halloween I was a pirate and so on.. :D

Actually, I just looked up a bunch of upcoming movies, and some of them are crazy! Some are pointless. Some sound dumb!
Here's a few I remember -
-a CG Garfield movie next summer (w/ Bill Murray as voice)
-Seriously dude, Where's my Car? (what a title!)
-Troy (A big adventure movie in ancient Troy starring Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, Sean Bean, and a bunch of other good actors)
-Alexander the Great (directed by Baz Lurhman of Moulin Rouge)
-Van Helsing (next summer, with Hugh Jackman/Wolverine as a young Van Helsing, fighting Dracula/Frankenstein/Wolfman/Jekyll&Hyde)
-Lots of bad sequels like Scooby Doo 2, Scary Movie 3, American Pie 3: American Wedding, etc.

Oh yes, I have to see Troy! I'm a huge Iliad fan! I've read at least three translations! But I also want to see Viggo Mortensons new movie. I forget what it's called though.. Hargilad? No. Gilgrilad? No. Hilgald? Maybe... anyone know?
It's pretty much a TRUE story about a man from the ol' west venturing over to the middle est for a world renoun horse race... but it's not jsut a test of speed. It's a huge feat of strength, cunning, endurance, and wit. It looks AWESOME.
