    One of the good things about living in Australia is that our films are always released on a Thursday, while in the US they seem to come out on a Friday - which means we often get big films a day earlier than the rest of the world.

    So today I went and saw the new pirates film. Be warned, there be spoilers within. Yarrrr.







    It was pretty freaking good. Orlando Bloom was slightly more tollerable this time. It seemed to be a bit more comical than the first one (from memory) - lot's of wacky fun action scenes. There's a very good 3-way sword fight that takes place on a giant rolling water-wheel. And of course there's a Kraken. Giant squids are cool. And of course it ends with a huge cliff-hanger. I'm kind of annoyed, because there's no real closure to the film, but it does mean that we get more pirate action next year. Which is always a good thing. Also, there are a few actors from UK sitcoms (there's Steve from Coupling and Gareth from The Office) which were kind of distracting as I was always thinking "hey, it's that guy from Coupling!" Ah well, still good.

    I can't wait to see it, but I'm more anxious to see the third...

    And the inevitable porn rip-off...

    That's all I will read! LOL! I'm really looking forward to this show...in fact more that Superman Returns! I really enjoyed the first one...I hope the 2nd doesn't disappoint...anyway, a third movie is a done deal...if I remembered, they wanted to flim the 3rd movie con-currently with the 2nd one.

    I'm gonna go see it, but I'm kinda scared. Pirates is reminding me too much of The Matrix. It was obvious that they intended the first one to be the only one, and now that it's become popular they're going to try and string a triology together.

    It failed for Matrix, hopefully it will succeed for Pirates, cause Jack is the best character that Depp has ever played IMO.

    Well from what i can tell it was ment to have more then one part. I mean they had the monkey at the end of the first one so that gave the hint that there would be a second one. That and i work in a building with Disney and they are already working on the 3rd one and it was always ment to be more the ONE movie.

    My understanding is that they signed on for the 2nd and 3rd movies at the same time.

    Oh yeah, this is what pissed me off:

    NO TRANSFORMERS TEASER.

    Yep, WTF?

    We got quality trailers for films like "little man" and more Tony Scott trash.

    Yeah my trailers were the Ant Bully, Invincible, and The Nativity story (can't remember its exact name). Very good job with the movie though
