After last weeks abortive attempt to see Pirates of the Caribbean, I finally got in this week. Jonny Depp was his cool self. He rarely manages to put a foot wrong in his films. If you liked the first one you’ll like this one too, and vice versa. I did enjoy the film, but at 2.5 hours long it requires some stamina in the backside region 🙂 They could have easily chopped out 30-45 minutes from the film and not lost anything.
The following night I went to see Superman Returns, another 2.5 hour film. I suppose it’s worth mentioning, I’m not a big superman fan. Well, I just didn’t see the point of this film. I felt like I was watcing every other superman film. There was nothing wrong with it, but I felt it added nothing either. I’m sure it will be a major success and spark a new franchise, but I think I’m the wrong side of 15 years old. 🙂
Some of the stills from the new Spiderman film look really cool, especially the ones where he becomes Venom. I quite liked the first film, but I hated the second one. If I hear the line, “With great power comes great responsibility”, one more time I’m going to puke. Less talking, less nausiating nostalgia, less rubbish love interest and more action please!
