    Thanks, Sue! I was there and glad we got those neat passes on lanyards which identified that we were guests at the midnight screening July 7. That was a nice keepsake.

    Your review is spot-on. I'm looking forward to the next movie, but for all the wrong reasons now.

    I am SO tired this morning!

    Re: 7/7: A Pirate's Night For Me

    I am on my way out to see it now, but interestingly this is the 3rd review in a row I've read that says "not for kids". Which is ironic, with all the toys they made for this film, but at the same time reassuring that it wasn't toned down.

    I'll have more to add in a few hours.

    Don't you just love the fact that they have the game of Life themed to PoTC? That way, if you buy it for yourself, it's "A Pirate's Life for me"!

    Ooh! And if you decide to announce the fact to two ladies of a certain profession...
    Oo-de-lally!

    I saw the midnight showing of it also. (not at the El Capitan, just at a theater) The last 30 seconds of the film make your jaw drop, then want to throw something at the screen when it ends. I Loved it though Everyone moaned when it ended, like someone had played a dirty trick on them. But then shortly after people burst into applause, my theater loved it. It was a very good movie in my opinion. The CGI on davy jones was so realistic. The whole feel to this movie is definetly different than the first one, and whether that is bad or good is up to you. For me I was also torn at first, but giving more thought on it I really liked this movie.

    Re: 7/7: A Pirate's Night For Me

    The last 30 seconds were great.

    My my my.

    This is not a kid's movie. This is Disney's second PG-13 movie...and by far the closest thing to an R rating I ever expect Disney to have.

    I still can't decide which one I like better, 1 or 2.

    And what is after the credits is not as cool as last time.

    I at least feel vindicated after being blasted in my thread last week about Disney irresponsibly marketing a PG13 to small kids. Watching them hand out Pirates posters to each and every toddler leaving the El Cap at Car's made me wonder. Happy Meals a go go. Obviously, rating are guidelines and sometimes worthless, and every parent is responsible for what their kids see, but there is a sense of expectation/trust in the Disney name and what kind of movies are considered Disney. I just don't think it's ethical for them to target your kid to get them to beg you to take them to something that may (or may not) clearly not be in their best interests. My 2 cents and I'm sure I'll get blasted again. This time tell Joe Camel.

    You know...I figured if this was like PoTC One there was no issue marketing a PG-13 movie to kids. But now...seeing the toys we have at work and then seeing the film...I think your post last week could be true to an extent. After seeing it I agree. But, before seeing it I was expecting another PoTC One, and that was a fine PG-13 to market to kids.

    Just look at how the Hollywood Reporter (excerpted) summed up this "Disney" Movie. Disney Films used to have a moral compass of some kind.

    "...If one wants to carp about such things, this family adventure has morphed into something decidedly odd, though perhaps it fits the zeitgeist: The film overflows with as much gleeful sadism as a PG-13 rating can contain. Birds pluck eyes from living captives, a father must whip the flesh from his son's back, Captain Jack is prepared for roasting, and the threat of rape clearly looms over Elizabeth as she languishes in prison.

    The whole pirate stew is flavored with moral fuzziness. The movie views pirates, who rob and murder on the high seas, as exemplars of fun-loving freedom; the East India Trading Company -- admittedly an imperialistic global corporation but nevertheless one that wants to rid the seas of homicidal criminals -- represents the forces of repression."

    Re: 7/7: A Pirate's Night For Me

    I saw the 3am showing there too. The crowd was awesome and so was the music before the movie. I really liked the movie. I liked that is was DARKER and they acted more like pirates. I do not want my pirates to be cute. They have to be BAD!!! Yes there were some parts that did drag. Then again this reminded me of EMPIRE STRIKES BACK or Temple of DOOM. They both were darker and didnt ride well with fans or reviewers. Overtime those films grew a greater following. So wait until it comes out on DVD and watch it again and see how you feel then. In the mean time I got to see it again at the EL Capitan this summer!! I am so glad Disney owns such a cool theatre. It felt like I was at the park.
