Pirates of Whatever

Holy crap.

That was not a good movie.

In fact, you might even call it a bad movie.

You know why?

CAUSE IT WAS BAD!

First off, I thought the animation was incredible and the fighting was pretty cool.

But now for the problems.

First: the music. There was no new music in this movie. It was all the same. And it kept working itself into a frenzy and then stopping! I like this technique to create suspense in a movie but it doesn't work if you do it like FORTY TIMES! Like, with one scene, the music would climb to a climax and stop, and then do it again like 10 more times. That isn't how you do it.

Bah.

Second, there were too many plot lines at once. I was so confused. And why did they want to kill Jack Sparrow?

Third, there were so many disposable people. Like there were maybe 12 people in that cage but like 300 or so crewing The Black Pearl later. It was stupid.

Fourth, cliffhanger was bizarre.

So yeah. That's why I didn't like this movie.

I liked the movie.
The music I don't really pay attention to, so that didn't bother me, although if it did do that then yea, that probably would make it a little worse.
Second, I could follow every plot line and I do not think there were too many.
Third ummmm yea, there were a lot of disposable characters, but A LOT of movies have disposable characters.
Fourth, you did understand the cliffhanger right?? If not I can explain that to you.

I thought it was a B movie. Not fantastic, but not bad. The music I didn't pay attention, though I see where you're coming from. The plot lines were a little confusing at first, but I got them after a while. Disposable characters are in all movies. Deal with it. Cliffhangers are awful, though. I hate them.

I agree with Jeff.. A "B" movie...
i didn't pay attention to music...
the plot lines weren't hard to follw/not too many...
the disposable characters bugged me.. so i agree with you on that...
and the cliffhanger was just really stupid and pointless and annoying... therefore it's a "B" movie.

Rawr. My computer spazzed out and posted that message multiple times. So I deleted them. Sorry about that!!!

i haven't seen the first one. so i don't plan on seeing the second one anytime soon.

Jon said...

Just to clarify, everybody knows who that pirate was at the end during the cliffhanger correct?? It was Barbosa, the guy who threw Jack Sparrow off of the Black Pearl in the first place before the first movie.

i have two reasons for liking those movies:
1. Orlando Bloom
2. Johnny Depp

nice Jon- now people who didn't already see it are going to know the ending. I'd give it a "B+". a bit too disney-esk if you ask me.

Jon said...

Sorry, and you know the movie is based on a disney ride right??

Angie said...

YES- i'm not THAT dumb. i'm just saying, they took the disney-ness of it and multiplyed it by, like, a lot.

how come everyone sounds so cranky online? Be happy everyone!!

Jon said...

Angie, I was not directing the question at you, I was throwing it out there about it being based on a ride, because A LOT of people do not know that fact. And you also sound cranky online.
