Avast Matey!

3 Jun

We saw the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie today. I had read several underwhelming reviews for the movies, including this one from Jess, who I always agree with. To steal an excellent quote from his review:

“Let’s see if I can briefly sum up Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. Blah, blah, swordfight. Blah, blah, Davy Jones’ Locker. Blah, blah, Cap’n Jack. Blah, blah, pirate lords. Blah, blah, double-cross. Blah, blah, swordfight. Blah, blah, goddess bound in human form. Blah, blah, Mexican standoff. Blah, blah, Keira and Orlando. Blah, blah, sea battle. Blah, blah, swordfight. Blah, blah, credits.”

In general the movie was wonderful to look at. The imagery was much better than the other movies, but the plot was pretty convoluted and often tough to follow. I did, however, learn one VERY important thing.

Mr. Pants better get real open minded, real quick because I am so bringing home this man:

So pretty….. so very pretty.

    Ha! I dated a girl once with a thing for Legolas. She liked his quiver…

    Back off, he’s mine! ha ha. My friend gave me a Pirates fleece blanket with his face on it that I keep on my bed (with my Legolas pillow case, sssshhhhh).

    Yeah, The first one was fun, I hated the second one (you’re supposed to wrap up all of the plot holes, not make them wider!) and I have just about no energy to go see the third. It’s a renter, methinks.
