Just got back from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.
WHOA. It was amazing. I read a bad review of it and was extremely anxious going in, but the ponce who dared to insult it’s film-making genius needs to be locked in the brig, if you ask me.
LOVED the (Greek) mythology. LOVED Sparrow this time around (every time, if I’m completely honest). LOVED Elizabeth this time (don’t always). LOVED Chow Yun-Phat. LOVED Kieth Richards as Jack’s father. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THE ENTIRE FILM.
DISLIKES? None, really. The beginning was painfully honest and historically accurate for the most part *grimace* (it may not be appropriate for some children, beware the PG-13 rating!!). The scenes in Singapore are confusing at first, but make sense over time. The end was bittersweet (ooh, there’s your spoiler). But, all in all, I really loved the entire thing. The editing was tight, and everything was explained eventually.
Oh. Be sure to stay past the credits. There’s some gooey sweetness.
How did we (St M, Mum, Emm, and I) manage to see it a day early? Mum saw an advertisement for a, well I guess, sneak(?) preview. Because there were only, like, 2 commercials for said sneak(?) preview last night the show wasn’t sold out! There were actually seats empty.
And of course I wore the tricorn. I finished sewing the trim on about 5 minutes before we left to pick up St M (who was in costume). I got, before we set sail, Emm to model the FO for a shot:
But, that’s done. I’ve already started another Top Secret knitting project, gotten beads for the Sheep-to-Shawl competition, and yarn arrived in the mail today (I’m in the legal clear, I ran out of yarn previously in the stash! … sorta).
Now, I really ought to go to sleep, so I can get up early in the morning – we’re heading to Portland to, er, ‘close’ on the lease to the house we’re going to be renting for the next year…
