Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At Worlds End

Best of the bunch by miles and has, currently, clinched the #1 spot of the movies I've seen at the cinema so far this year. Fairly unexpected as I thought Pirates 2 was rather so-so.

Great film. Good laughs. Good acting. Great special effects/CGI.

I loved the bits in Singapore :)

Won't say anymore about it as I'm sure there are plenty of people on my f-list who haven't caught it yet. Oh, and yes, there is a bit right at the end of the credits so if those little 'extra' moments are your thing it's certainly worth sitting right through to the end.

1. Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World’s End
2. Apocalypto
3. Babel
4. 28 Weeks Later
5. Spiderman 3
6. 300
7. This Is England
8. Outlaw
9. Hot Fuzz
10. Sunshine
11. Deja Vu


After we dropped everyone off Rosie and myself drove into London and went shopping in Oxford Street. Rosie is now the proud owner of a Nintendo DS and Nintendogs (which she's been wanting for ages). I picked up a few DVDs that were going reasonably cheap (Band of Brothers, Carnivale Season 2, The Village, A Scanner Darkly, The Black Dahlia and anotehr copy of A City of Lost Children in French with English subtitles as the copy I had is dubbed - aarrgg!).

Anyway, time to go and cook some supper for us both. Beginning to get a bit peckish...bye!

Glad to hear the film was fun - I only woke up about 10 minutes before you were due to see it so wasn't in a position to join you all :(

Nintendogs: Which "flavor" did Rosie get? I have the Labrador version if she wants to unlock some of the breeds from that set.

Oooh, I got the Labradors one! :D

One of my mates left a hilarious comment about how Nintendogs is shit "because you can't drown [them] it when you're in a bad mood"!!!

How nasty is that?! :O

Can't get Angus off the Brain training thing now. We're going to fight over Sudoku before bed.

What colour's your DS? :P

I'm glad that you and Rosie enjoyed the film. I thought it was great and am dying to see it again on the big screen.

Just goes to prove even with lousy reviews a film can still be great.

Re: potc 3
Well I REALLY hated the other two... so it was NICE to like one for a change!

What pressure!

Well, I hope you like it now!

My taste in films does range from the remarkably good to the really quite poor though. Still, I did think this was the best of the three PotC films so far and a vast improvement on #2.

I cannot believe the films you put above Spiderman 3... shameful...

I know everyone has there own tastes but... have you seen any of the four films I placed above Spidey 3?

I enjoyed Spidey 3 but there were parts of it which I thought were overlong or a bit dull. I liked Sandman and thought they portrayed him well onscreen. Wasn't so sure about Venom though.

Spidet was a fun film but I, personally, preferred the other four over it and would imagine it'll fall even further down the list as the year wears on and films such as Transformers and The Golden Compass are released.

Heh, actually no, but I am a bit of a spideyphile. I did love what they did with Sandman as he is one of my all time fave villians.
The only problem I had with the movie was the goblin / spidey fight which was so fast it was difficult to keep track of.
I do want to see babel and 28 days, but Pirates leaves me a bit cold and I really don't fancy Apocalypto

Wow, I thought it utterly sucked.

Lol.

Yeah, I saw your review and thought "I bet i like it then" as our recent views on most of the films we see have tended to have conflicted somewhat! :p
