Pirates of the Caribbean VIII

Friday, June 6th, 2008

Lars and I just watched Pirates of the Caribbean:  At Worlds End.  I have to say, there goes 2.5 hours of my life that I would like to have back.  I mean, maybe the plot was good but I COULDN’T HEAR ANY OF THE PLOT (that was pretty confusing, to begin with) OVER THE SWEEPING MUSICAL SCORE OF PIRATE-NESS.  Pirates don’t steal booty–they steal my soul.  At least for the last couple of hours, they did.   I have to say, I don’t like feeling like I’m aging at an exponential rate and this movie certainly made me feel just like that.  For example:

ME: WHAT DID THEY SAY?

LARS: HUH?

ME:  WHAT DID THAT PIRATE SAY TO THE MONKEY?

LARS:  THAT’S A MONKEY? I THOUGHT IT WAS AN ATTRACTIVE FEMALE PIRATE…

ME: OH GEEEZE.  WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?

So lame.
