    Don't mean to spoil anyone's excitement. I don't think I could anyway. Let's just say that for the first two or three weekends at least you can have my space in line.

    Barry, I wasn't too thrilled with the first, but LOVED the second one. Go hire it and watch! (if you haven't already seen it LOL LOL) I'm sure you'll enjoy it. As for it being too long, when it ended (and it ends suddenly) I was thinking what the heck?? What's going to happen!!!!

    I saw part of a quite Negative Review on MSNBC.....so i stopped reading until i can see it for myself.

    If it is as mediocre as Spiderman 3 or Shrek 3, or Star Wars 3, or X-Men3... I will 'like' it....

    Well, it's currently at 55% on rottentomatoes, which gives it a rotten rating. But that does mean that the critics at least are split down the middle about this one as you can see from the reviews they list. I still hope this one is better than Spiderman 3.

    Use Rottentomatoes.com if you really care about what the St. Louis Daily Sentinel Weekly or the Mt. Couldn't-find-it-on-a-map Observer says about a film. See for yourself - enjoy!

    My wife and our friends are there for the midnight showing tonight. We're going to wear our pirate Mickey ears just to show up the others in lines. Luckily our theater is reserved seating so we don't have to get there super early.

    I've seen positive and negative reviews both, but I've seen more positive than bad about it. I'll wait and form my own opinions. As for what critics say, they are paid to critique (which by definition means point out the weaker points).

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    No it doesn't. When you critique, you don't just tell what the weak points are. You say what is strong as well.

    If you find a review where all they do is point out the faults and none of the things that work, then I bet you that you've found a very biases critic.

    Re: Official "POTC: At World's End" Review Thread and Poll

    Right.

    Spoiler
    Good points.
    * Swords coming up through the floor. Whoa.
    * The usage of sound clips from the ride during the trip to World's End - "Dead men tell no tales", "You filthy bilge rats", etc, gave me shivers and was a fantastic nod to the ride that started it all
    * Many characters sung snippets of "Yo Ho Yo Ho" throughout the film. Loved it.
    * The dog with the keys! Eeee!
    * THE MONKEY! I need to kidnap that monkey.
    * Tia Dalma/Calypso was AWESOME
    * I freakin' love Captain Barbossa.
    * Love the score, as always
    * Fantastic action scenes
    * Davy Jones is scarily realistic as ever
    * Shipwreck Cove! Whoa.
    * Keith. Richards. That's all I have to say on that matter.
    * The Kraken! Poor thing.

    Not so good points
    * Erm, was this really a Disney film? I mean, the amount of gore, killing, and general vileness seemed a bit out of place in Disney's argueably current-premiere film. I'm not being petty here either - how many people got hung at the start? Eurgh, when those corpses strapped to boats were being attacked by seagulls. And I mean, come on, all those dead bodies floating in limbo at World's End? DISNEY!!!!
    * Jack Sparrow. Annoyed. The. Hell. Out. Of. Me. Wish he'd stayed dead.
    * The film was a bit long. Kinda reminded me of LotR 3.
    * Cutler Beckett just 'gives up'? Just like that? Pshtt.
    * Ok technically not part of the given film, but the hidden scene at the end of the credits - COME ON! If you've seen it you'll know what I mean.
    * Dead Man's Chest was seen as quite confusing by some. Although it didn't confuse me, I can see how it would confuse some people. Many things going on at once. At World's End took this to a new level. My head started overheating in parts. Really, really confusing.

    In general, a very good end to the trilogy. There may be future Pirates films, but the trilogy was nicely tied up in the third film. Many many hints to the previous two films, bucket loads of hints to the attraction which I loved and was probably the only person in the theater who appreciated them, plenty of action, romance, comedy (I was very pleased that the humour of this film was just as good if not better then the first two films, as usually by the second sequel films tend not to be as funny as the first one), everything really. Very good film. Worth the hype? That's yet to be decided. I shall be editing this post when I have come to my conclusion.


    Last year I watched Dead Man's Chest five times at the cinema. I don't think I could see this one more than twice, for various factors.

    4 out of 5 stars for me.

    Hmm, your bad points were what my managers didn't like, which killed the movie for them. Especially your last point, which even confused the one manager that actually was following the film's story at the level that can only be described as "nerdom."

    Your good points are what I believe will win the fans of the previous two films (if not the entire franchise) over. I mean, your list is pretty much what the fans want in the general sense.

    Now, to figure out when I can go and exploit my free employee passes.
