Pirates  
Saw pirates tonight with several people from work. We had dinner at Marie Callender's at the Lakewood Mall first and then went to the 8:30 showing at the nearby theatre.

I've heard that some people were disappointed by it. I'm totally confused as to what people thought they were getting out of the first movie to build up the type of expectations that would be disappointed by the second movie. To anyone who hasn't seen it yet, go in expecting something silly, actiony, and fun, and you'll end up happy. My only minor complaint is that there were about twice as many rum jokes as there should have been.

I had a couple amusing but totally inappropriate thoughts during the movie. They're totally out of context but could technically be considered spoilers, so stop reading now if you care.

"'And what do you use a key for?' [long confused pause] 'More witches!'"

"Coming soon from whatever game company thinks of it first: Pirates of the Katamari!!"

and "Oh good, they must be doing this in lieu of 'Jungle Cruise: The Movie'"

So by "juggle cruise", it meant that jmpava spelled something better than donaithnen? I make not sense when tired.

Dude, I expected something silly, actiony, fun, and coherent. This was like the second Matrix movie--lots of shiny bits, but they were all jumbled together with no consistent direction...

Altho I gotta say, Pirates of the Katamari would be brilliant.

Free Tickets Won
i am going to see it soon too! I won some free tickets from that Vons store shopping promo - if you spend more than $40 in certain sponsoring brands, you get the tickets!

pretty good deal, except now I have more lunchables than I know what to do with!

I did start humming the Katamari theme.

The main thing the first movie had that the second movie didn't was dialogue. The first movie had lots of amusing dialogue; the second had amusing action sequences instead, which, while fun, were disappointing if you went into the movie going "I want more fun banter!"

There *were* too many rum jokes :) Generally too many references to the first movie, like "LOOK! IT'S A SEQUEL!!"

Enjoyed it anyway I did.
