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.

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.
"OMFG HE'S SO HOT SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!@!@"
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."
