Pirates 3



I have to gush about this movie because we saw it last night and unfortunately it's filled my brain so much that I can't think about anything else. And why the picture of Orlando and not Johnny Depp? Hey I wrote the book Obsessing Orlando under the name Kassy Tayler. That should pretty much explain it all.

Great special effects. Great battle scenes! Depp was hilarious. Rush thoroughly enjoyed his turn as Barbossa. Keira got to be a kick ass heroine. And Orloando got to be heroic and romantic and give us more of those great movie kiss scenes.

The ending kind of made me sad. But it left the potential for more movies. But I have to say my favorite scene (and this does not give away any plot points) was where the ship was sailing on a sea of stars. It was one of the most visually stunning things I've ever seen. Almost as if they were in deep space just drifting along. So see it even relates!

    I haven't seen this movie yet, though I fully intend to. Your mention of the ship sailing away on a sea of stars brings to mind Disney's animated Peter Pan, the scene near the end where that pirate ship sails off into the night sky, dissolving visually into random drifting clouds. I wounder if that linkage is intentional.

  2. It could be a tribute to Peter Pan. It makes sense. All I know was it took my breath away when I saw it.
