Movie Reviews

Since I got back I’ve been watching a lot of DVDs and movies. I just got back from Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Just so you know I really enjoyed the first one but I thought the 2nd one was sort of weak so take my opinion with a grain of salt if you enjoyed the 2nd one. I barely even remember what happened in 1 and 2 so I was really lost watching 3. If you haven’t seen it yet I suggest watching 1 and 2 again as a refresher. The whole time I was like ???? The movie was also very long at 2 hours and 45 minutes. I ended up falling asleep a few times during the movie as well! (Maybe that’s why I was so confused? hehe). Anyways, overall I thought the movie sucked. If they come out with a 4 which they hinted at at the end, I will probably wait for DVD. Also, fyi if you wait til the very end of the movie there’s a tiny clip. I wouldn’t say it’s worth it to stay all the way through the credits but if you are like me, I hate finding out that I missed one of those!

On dvd, I saw World Trade Center. Of course, it was very sad but at the same time it was a bit slow. There was not much more to the story than what I already knew about it. It did offer a personal look at a few of the families of 2 police officers stuck in the rubble.

Also saw Alpha Dog, the movie with Justin Timberlake. I didn’t know til afterwards that the movie was based on a true story. It’s about a drug dealer and his posse who kidnap a guy’s brother because he owes them money. The whole movie you’re thinking, “wow these kids are the stupidest kids on earth”. It was actually kind of annoying how lame they were. This is a good movie to show your kids if you want to teach them to not do drugs heheh. I was a bit disappointed in Justin’s character in the movie. He was such a loser in the movie! Oh well.

i saw pirates 3 this weekend too… i, like you, did not enjoy the 2nd one as much as everyone else. however, i really liked the 3rd one. maybe it’s because i prepared myself by rewatching part 1 and 2, but everything started making sense and came together in the 3rd. watching the 3rd one actually made part 2 not so bad, lol… but i hope they dont come out with a 4th… i hate when movies try to expand more than trilogies. stop at 3!!!
