Number 1000!!! Friday, October 28th - Larry H. publishes his one thousandth movie review 1997-2022
  
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Released:  May 25, 2007
Also known as "Pirates 3." I've been trying to see this movie for three days; I've been busy shopping with She Who Must Not Be Named and going to high school graduation parties: congratulations to Brandon S., Steve J., and April F. and college grad Laura M.

This movie is over 2 1/2 hours so get ready for a long haul, Mate. The old gang of Orlando Bloom (Will Turner) and Keira Knightley (Elizabeth Swan) and Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) form an unlikely team to find and free Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). It took them almost 45 minutes to find Captain Jack and I was getting impatient because Jackie is my favorite pirate and my interest is high when Depp's Captain Jack is on the screen.

I've decided this Captain Jack is a cross between Spider-Man and Eddie Haskell with a touch of The Scarecrow except this character's got a brain. If you liked the first two "Pirates" then you'll like this one; it's just simple fantasy and fun. Is that so wrong?

Plenty of dueling Pirate Lords, the dead, the un-dead, the soon to be un-un-dead, and the soon to be dead probably. You will need a program to keep up with the players, but then again I knew I was missing the nuances of the story but I didn't care and don't think it mattered. Just set sail for the voyage. The closing battle lasted about an hour.

These pirates had decidedly bad teeth; must have inherited their dental hygiene from the British; all of the pirates except Ms. Knightley who has pretty white teeth. I figured Director Gore Verbinski just couldn't allow make-up to mess up the good looks of the only fox in a den of uglies...aarrrrggghhh. Rock 'n Roll.
