>I saw Pirates of the Caribbean this weekend. Damn that was a long movie! And it wasn’t that good. It was OK, but there was too much going on and I think the editor quit half way through the production because some scenes were tight and kept my attention, while others just dragged on.
Not to give anything away here, but what was with Tia Dalma? That storyline was just totally random and not resolved. And what about the British dude from the East India Trading Co? His character wasn’t developed enough and I don’t get the ending to his character’s storyline.
It’s been a hell of a long time since I’ve seen a really good movie. Usually Disney can be counted on to come through with quality, but not this time.
>I just watched that movie Girl with a Pearl Earring. It was beautiful to watch, but the story was lacking. It seemed to go on for a long time and end up nowhere. I kept going what was with that guy’s wife and kids? Why was that one kid such a brat? I guess I would have been a brat too if I had a weird mom like she had. At the end, I didn’t get where Griet ended up. Did she go back to her parents or move in with the butcher?
The other thing I noticed was that there wasn’t much dialogue. It seemed like everything was conveyed with body language and theme music. It was interesting, but I enjoy good dialogue. I swear the main characters said maybe 10 sentences to each other throughout the whole movie.
Granted, I mostly watched the movie because Colin Firth was in it. I’ve enjoyed him ever since I saw him in the mini series version of Pride and Prejudice. In this movie he plays a long haired painter. SWOON! Sorry, had a girl moment there.
Anyway, if you want to watch a movie that is beautiful like a painting, but has little plot, this is the movie for you.
