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!

The ending *zigged* when I thought it would *zag* --surprising, but a good ending, IMHO. ;)

Cindy, did you stay until after ALL the credits rolled? There was a bit of an epilogue which they should have included at the end of the movie, btw. :)

Hugs,

I LOVED the movie too! Thought it was a great ending to the saga.

Also, it's really a HEA ending.

That clip at the end shows the curse being broken. No one knows this because the scene where they talk about how the curse can be broken if the keeper of the heart stays truthful for ten years -- which Elizabeth did -- was cut do to the movie being too long. I'm certain it'll be in the deleted scenes when the DVD comes out.

So that small clip at the end wasn't him coming back for his one day, but for good. The directors thought the green flash in the background was enough to let the viewers know that he was coming back from the dead, like when they came back from rescuing Jack.

They should have kept that scene that explained the curse fully.

*sigh

Anyhow, I'm a Johnny fan and not an Orlando fan. However -- I thought he (Orlando) was HOT at the end. They should have made him like that throughout the entire movie. Mmm...

Love your photo with the dog, Cindy. The lighting is just right.

Cheers,
Mai
