Avast, Ye Scurvy Dogs

I finally gave in and saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. Overall, nowhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be. I mean, come on, it's based on a frickin' ride at Disneyworld. Or is it Disneyland? Eh, whatever...the point being that it's a Disney ride. Personally, I would've had less of a visceral reaction to even the trailers I started seeing months ago if they had left off the "Pirates of the Caribbean" part. Just plain "Curse of the Black Pearl" sounds infinitely cooler.

But oh well.

  1. I have to say I'd agree with that, as I saw it on Sunday. Johnny Depp, as always, was great fun, and I swear I've never seen a more fey pirate either, and yet quite amusing. A friend observed that it's the kind of movie you enjoy, but 15 minutes later can't really recall any details about.Total fluff, fun fluff, but fluff.
