Saw Pirates 3 last night.

I will confess to loving those movies beyond all reasonable expectations.

The critics, predictably, hated it.

How dare someone make a cheezy special effects vehicle out of such a classic literary treasure as a.....Disneyland ride?!?!? Exactly what else did they expect here?

I immediately disregard any review of anything that takes the "OMG SO COMPLICATED YOU WILL BE CONFUSED" tack. If you're too fucking stupid to understand a Disney movie designed exactly to appeal to every demographic, you probably shouldn't be allowed to mix with the public in a movie theater. Furthermore, the storyline here is far, far more comprenensible and creative than the plodding, out-of-thin-air "now that you have passed the thirteenth test of Glahbnskmard, we must move quickly to Zzjkisdngfu. I fear dark times are ahead!" shit in Lord of the Rings, which the same critics all fell over eachother to gush about.

I Agree!
However it was really annoying to sit in front of a school of teenage girls who gushed their panties at every Johnny Depp or Orlando Bloom close-up.
Fuck the critics.

They should release special cuts for that crowd. Just close-ups and implied homoeroticism.

I haven't seen it yet but everyone I know who has seen it, including my son and daughter, loved it! I don't read the criticcal assessments anymore, they are wrong more often than they are right, it seems to me.

I saw it last night, too. It was all right. I was unabashedly laughing my ass off at the flaming monkey, which was probably geared toward the kids, but oh well.

I admit to a little confusion during the first scene depicting Jack's craziness, but I didn't start sobbing and give up all hope of understanding anything from that point forward.

My judgement: It was all right. The first one was better, though.

The only part I found confusing was that I thought Norrington and Beckett looked alike and I had some issues there, but other than that, the storyline itself, I thought, was very good.

As far as that site goes, all I have to say is look at the movies it gave good ratings to....

Yeah - they always kept Beckett in a different uniform :P. Still, it's totally "Oh shit! Our villian is a good guy now...I know, let's create another one just like him!"

That site is an average of many assclowns' critics' assclowns' ratings, so "it" is pretty much "all of them."
