So I saw “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” last night with the wife and Beth. Without giving anything away, I’ll just say that I liked the movie but I was the only one in my group that did. This one was much more metaphysical than the previous two, and with only two real action scenes, this movie has enough intrigue, magic, betrayal, pirate history and tension to choke a Kraken. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. It was interesting to see Jack Sparrow’s version of Hell; and I really enjoyed the meeting of the Pirate Brotherhood, but even I was itching for just one more sword fight.

There is a sense of sorrow that influences the movie. It is the end of the Age of Piracy and I could feel that throughout. The ending reflected that and I was prepared for it. My companions were not and I think it’s why they didn’t like it.

Stick around for after the credits. There is a final scene you’ll want to see.

  1. Shon, you have to get yourself on the new CBS Pirate reality show, Pirate Master.

    It was made with you in mind!

    Glad you liked the movie. I just think Orlando Bloom is hot. And that’s my pirate story. :)


  2. Love the pirate theme. I’ll be back!

  3. hmm i liked it. i thought it was very captivating throughout. i wasn’t looking for a major action film though and i do like more “out there” subject matter though. i missed the end credits because i was going to see shrek 3. i’ll have to try to catch it on the dvd if it’s there.

  4. Eve- I have to say, Orlando had some of his cooler looking moments.

    gardenwise guy- Thanks :)

    red velvet- I really like the magical side of the movie too. The voyage to the other side was just about perfect.

  5. Oh no! I didn’t stick around through the credits! I missed something!

  6. I loved the movie. And I’m glad it’s pirate week.

  7. We went and saw it tonight. I totally enjoyed the end fight. I was wishing for more about Davey Jones and Calypso (a story all of its own I’m sure) and the ‘after credits’ scene was not surprising to me in the slightest.

    Captain Sparrow is ‘da bomb. Course I’ve had a crush on Johnny Depp since….21 Jump Street.
