Re: Last movie you watched

I wanna try phoneticizing it, hold on.

So, generally, it's "huht" — rhymes with "foot' — "spah." "Huht-spah." But then it also has some of that Smeagol-clearing-his-throat hhhcccckkkkchchhhckk-ness before the first syllable, so it's ultimately pronounced "hchsHUHT-spah."

This has been fun for you and for me.

I think the best phonetic spelling is phleghmuht-spah

"You maniacs! You blew it up! God damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

I wanted to love this so hard. I rooted for it when the entire internet seemed determined to rise up in hatred years before it came out. I was genuinely thrilled by the first trailer. Even when the reviews broke yesterday, I was hoping against hope it would somehow be good.

I was in actual physical discomfort throughout this movie's ninety minutes from how bad it was. Absolutely nothing good from the books is here. To borrow Dorkman's analogy, someone started calling this movie The Dark Tower and stuck in characters we know were in a series called The Dark Tower, but it's no more The Dark Tower than a shitty fan trailer is.

What makes it so much worse is how this thing completely fucking wasted its cast. We were never gonna get a better Roland than Idris Elba or Flagg than Matthew McConaughey, and the filmmakers fucking blew it. And it doesn't just apply to the two leads. Remember the awesome crazy weirdo charismatic blonde wife from Mad Max: Fury Road? She's in here, but it might as well be a random extra playing her character for all the impact she's allowed to have. The characters are all nothings, the script seems like it was assembled by a computer, and Mid-World has all the vibrancy and life of a screensaver.

I can't decide whether this or Beauty and the Beast is my least favorite entry in what has otherwise been a damn fine year for film. What a joke.

"Pirates of the Carribean: Deadmen Tell No Tales AKA Salazar's Revenge."

I haven't seen the 4th one. When my brother asked me after we saw this movie if I understood all the references made, I explained them pretty simply, so apparently the fourth one wasn't required watching.

I need to do a full review of this, because there was so much about this movie to enjoy. I'll start off with the fact that this movie is pure fun with some great drama thrown in. It does something that I think very few films are willing to do now in their storytelling and this explore the consequences of what happens to the characters. In fact, I would say that Jack Sparrow is the poster child for contemporary film characters, as someone who actively tries to avoid consequences. And, in this instance, an act that he did when he was younger comes back to haunt him.

The story is a bit contrived, in that it tries to draw several characters and interconnect them in a way, but it flows very well once the characters are set up, and the plot points of getting the characters together are quickly moved past as the characters establish their relationships, and each person discovers some depth to the other that isn't expected, like Henry's reaction to Jack, Corina's reaction to Henry, and so on.

The film is very grand in scope and end goal, and it doesn't disappoint. It ties up plot points from the 3rd and 4th film in a way that was incredibly satisfying, and in ways I didn't expect. The main characters are all fairly well defined, and the film only drags because it has such a large supporting cast, and a subplot that doesn't go anywhere. But, other than that, this movie is an adventure, feels big and grand, and ends in the most satisfying way.

Highly recommend.

God loves you!

I honestly went in to it expecting it to be more of the same, very predictable story.

But, it actually creates a very large,epic feeling tale. It's editing could be a little tighter, but the story is so enjoyable that I only noticed a couple of parts that really took me out but then I was right back in.

It has the same fun and fantastical feel as the first, but a more epic feel, like it has a larger impact on the world its building.

Also, as established, I am a sucker for father-son scenes, and this has two...what, I didn't cry. I went to an old theater.

God loves you!

Re: Last movie you watched

We did an Extended Edition episode on it and rather enjoyed it.

It's not in any way ground breaking but if you enjoy adventure films and want to watch a Pirates sequel you could do far worse.

Re: Last movie you watched

I actually wasn't aware it had come out yet, but according to RottenTomatoes, it's been out for months.

So, yeah, I'm keepin' up with everything.
