MEEEE! It was really good, even though it had a very different feel to it from the other movies. Maybe it was the absense of Elizabeth, Will, Pintel and Rigetti, and all the other characters we know and love or that it was a different director. At least it still had Gibbs, Barbosa, and most importantly, Jack.
Like always the movie had its humor and its action. The plot was certainly fresh and new, whereas in the third film there was a feeling of the writers not knowing where to go. With this completely new story.
My only complaint is that it was TOO FREAKING LOUD in the theater. Whenever a fight/flight scene came about I had to plug my ears, turn to Lilly (who also and her fingers jammed in her ears), and say, "This part is too epic." But I blame the theater itself for that one, and also myself for wanting to sit front row.
Would I see the movie in theaters again? Yeah, probably, but only if someone wants someone else to go with and they pay (fifteen dollars for my sister and I to see it, jeesh). Will I buy it when it comes out on DVD? Heck to the yes.
My only question now is: Will there be another film? I've heard rumors that this was going to be the start of a new trilogy. I wonder how long Johnny D. will be up for playing Sparrow and how much of the audience will stay and tolerate more of what the writers cook up.
Remember this drawing? "What can I say? I've got a thing for fictional men." Well, I decided to make a list of all the fictional men I've fallen in love with over the years, be them book, movie, webcomic, or manga characters.
1. Zombie/... From Tessa's webcomic Hanna is Not a Boy's Name. He's a zombie (literally) and can't seem to remember anything from his life, including his name (people just refer to him as Zombie or Dot). He has green skin, glowing eyes, and is a paranormal detective partner to Hanna. He's one of those guys who's just really sad and mysterious and on the rare occasions that he smiles your hearts gives an extra, heavy thump.
2. Zuko From the anime show Avatar: The Last Airbender. He's a firebender who's the main villain in the first two seasons since all he wants to do is capture the Avatar. Once in a while he does something good and then he finally realizes that his duty is to help the Avatar, not capture him. His character is so conflicted.
3. Yami/Atem From the anime show Yu-Gi-Oh!. Like Zombie from above Yami can't remember his name or his past. Soon he comes to learn that he is an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh forced inside a millenium puzzle and residing inside the soul of a fifteen-year-old kid. In the last season of the show he find out his name is really Atem. He is the King of Games (including card games, which in Japan, you do). If you've ever watched the show and listened to his voice, no further explanation is needed.
I could go on with the list, but these are my top three!
You know how I get freaky with my food. Two weeks ago Heidi came home for the weekend and we made a pizza. We were going to shred some cheese for the hair but we didn't want to waste it, since in my house cheese is a delicacy. He kind of came out sunburned...
Since frosting's gross, I made pudding to act as a substitute for the brownies. First time licking an egg beater. Tricky little buggers.
