Caught Pirates of the Caribbean 3 today with elvaron
, and the siblings. I haven't actually ever been in a movie where I had
my ticket's worth guranteed
before the movie started. The cinema screened this Balls of Fury
(deathmatch Ping-Pong shtick) movie, and Masi Oka
had a cameo. ♥ You could totally
tell where the Heroes fans in the cinema were sitting because all of us went :D!!!!! simultaneously. SO GUYS I AM SORRY, Masi gets my love and gets posted uncut, because, man
, way to get me hyped up before a movie, and also, his wide-eyed delirious enthusiasm is exactly
the attitude I've got for Pirates
Quick summary? All in all: GREAT STUFF: as anyasy
says, leave common sense at the door and you'll enjoy this movie, STAY TIL AFTER THE CREDITS
. Also, it's three hours long, so BE PREPARED.
SO. Was that long wait following the end of the second movie's WTF?! GIMME MY MONEY BACK ending worth it? I wasn't awaiting this movie with bated breath (every review I'd read panned it completely), and only people I knew who enjoyed it went in with absolutely no expectations. AND YET. I completely
enjoyed this one.
Where do I start
? *incredibly stupid grin* It isn't enough that I've been living in a city where every single Pirates poster
's emblazoned with the words WELCOME TO SINGAPORE!
says, you'd half-expect a Singapore Tourism Promotion Board logo to pop up after Chow Yun Fat made that particular announcement). But man - this movie was so much fun
, and I willingly and cheerfully ship every single pairing
that this movie throws at me. ♥
Pirates' vision of Singapore is deeply hilarious, because they think Singapore's a combination of Louisanian bayou, imperial China, and incredibly criminally-developed fishing village. I LOVE YOU HOLLYWOOD! Also, desperately wanted Chow Yun Fat to attempt speaking Singlish to Keira Knightley after reading anyasy
's review, however, went to theatre and discovered that Sao Feng actually quotes Cantonese love poetry to Elisabeth. If the translation was anything to go by it involved the spring wind, flowers, and other very Singaporean things. WARNING: SPOILERS ( What I Wanted to HappenCollapse )
And what actually happened: ( Extensive Pirates of the Caribbean thoughts and lots of pictures.Collapse ) ( Totally random things I loved about the movie.Collapse ) ( totally random thing I wtf'ed over in the movie. all Beckett-related.Collapse )
