On set pic of Keith Richards as Sparrow's dad.
(one on the right!), not the little bald fella
"Image removed at studio's "request""...I bet they asked really nicely as well.
I can't see what their problem is - this is the worst kept secret in hollywood since secrets began!!
i found a copy.
Well I'm still looking forward to it - I actually quite enjoyed #2!
Me too...dont think I've laughed so hard at a movie for years as I did with number 2 some real comedy gold in that.
Actually cant wait for number 3
Promotional images, though not final.
Looks like a complete new theme, I'm not complaining though...
Chow Yun Fat
A god amongst men
Oh my - that has upped my expectations for the film in one swoop!
wonder if chow yun fat will whip a few pistols out in this movie?
Those promo posters are very 'lord of the rings' style from return of the king.
Watching this over the weekend,
Here's Empire's summary of review;
The plot's a trippy, twisty mess, and it's far too long, but it looks fantastic and makes some bold choices in its execution. And once again Jack's back to save the day. 3 out of 5.
I shall go and see it over the weekend, but I'm really not holding out too much hope for it, after the last one, which I thought dragged and this one is even longer.
I've seen this referred to elsewhere as the Matrix effect, brilliant first one, disappointing second one, but you forgive it because you know it's only half finished and the other bit is still to come and redeem the whole thing, then the third one turns out to be complete rubbish and you wish they'd stopped after the first one
Deseprately hoping to be proved wrong. Hopefully going in with lower expectations, I might be in for a nice surprise.
Going to see this tomorrow
Looking forward to it and hoping it will be third time lucky for me. In case you don't know, the other films I've seen this month were Spidey 3 and 28 weeks later. Won't bore people, already castigated them enough
Keira Knightley helps for a start I have high hopes for it and hope to see a nice conclusion. I'm a firm believer in leaving on a high - please don't kill it; T3, Spidey 3, 28 months later, Rocky V, it goes on
Blank spaces are spoilers!
The beginning was surreal with where Jack was, but I kind of liked it and after developments later it makes me curious (hint: crabs!)
In the beginning quarter to third of the film, it took a bit of time to get going - I thought too much plodding, though somewhat bearable
The fight scene at the end was cool in a way but too many close up shots of hand to hand combat - I thought they could have edited it shorter
Loved what happened to Will at the end:
Being confined to the Flying Dutchman was refreshingly different from the clichéd they will grow old and live happily ever after storyline
. As for Chow Yun-Fat, I thought a
shame he dies mid-way through. Not enough screen time or character development imho
Easter egg at the end was interesting but not as good; read funny as others.
And they have left it open for number 4
Went to see it yesterday and was the best of the lot! Plotlines were good, all the old characters were there, plenty of action as you would expect and Keith Richards to boot.
The effects were great but it was a bit surreal in places which may confuse a bit but I thought added to it nicely.
Keira Knightley was really good and looking amazing, she had a plum role.
Will be going to see it again before it leaves the cinema.
Has to be a 10/10 from me.
Do we have to wait after the credits roll on this one?, any extra scene?
Been reading some reviews on this and most of them are pretty poor. Another blockbuster in the mediocre pile then, pinning my hopes on Die Hard 4 and Transformers...
I was looking forward to Die Hard 4 myself, until I heard it was going to be rated PG-13! It'll be like watching the ITV cut of Die Hard
Yep. There's a little extra at the end but when the film ends you will probably guess what it is.
I saw this yesterday and though it was quite good and better than the last.
One thing though was that the performance i went to was using a digital projector which really sharpened everything up. Are all films now using this as it was much better quality than 28 weeks later i saw at the weekend.
Glad to hear digital projection sharpened it up. I'm going on Sunday in nottingham to a DP showing. Booked specially to ensure i got that.
Sadly i don't think all films will end up this way for a long while - simply cos the cinemas seem reluctant to invest in the digital equipment. The cinema i'm going to has a max of 2 of 14 screens as digital projection (1 of the 6 screens showing Pirates is digital).
Wish they'd sort this out - we can have digital HD at home - why not at the cinema?
Went to see this last night and it was my worst cinema experience ever. Really [email protected] cinema, really really [email protected] film. And that is my worst detailed review ever
Which cinema is doing that??
Care to expand? As above, OK some bits dragged on and it needn't have been 3 hours with some careful editing, but I still liked it and the ending was good with regards to Will imo
28 weeks later was shot on 16mm
And this film was terrible.
went to see this yesterday at my local multiplex empire cinema.
First off considering how long the film is we also had to plod through 22 minuets and 33 seconds of adverts and trailers before the film actually started. (transformers trailer was really good on big screen though!)
Anyway back on track. The two main problems with this movie are its too long, and there is far to much double crossing going on between the characters that it does make it a little hard to follow. I like the first movie and thought the second one was mediocre at best. This third installment although highly polished and well performed by its leads just didn't click for me.
Having said that I am sure the die hard pirates fans will love it, but hopefully not enough to make a fourth one
In full agreement with Dave-s, It was far too long. I was actually bored within half an hour, my wife fell asleep 2 hours in. I felt it was trying to be a bit too clever on the double double crossing; it became quite tedious. And whilst I loved the understated Jack in the first one, both the second and third one tried far too hard to give Jack too much to do. I mean what the hell were they thinking with the whole 2 Jacks hanging off of Jacks dreads!! highlight to view
And £6.30 each to sit in the worst cinema I've been in, rubbish sound, and popcorn all over the floor.
I'd have rather sat through Spicegirls the Movie with Ginger spice sat next to me.
Spoiler - don't read my post if you're bothered about finding stuff out.
Saw this yesterday. Worst one of the lot. I came out feeling totally let down. The double crossing was pointless and unbelievable as you know it would all come good in the end. An hour into it and I was wanting to leave, 2 hrs into it and I was struggling to stay awake. Why was it so long? Just sail to where you have to go to, have a fight, kill the English and then roll the credits.
The bit where the woman grew to a massive proportions was cringe worthy (why were the ropes still holding her to the sail?) I thought I was watching Sinbad the Sailor. And what did this great godess do? made it it overcast and a bit rainy then turned into a crab. Don't get me started on the marriage during the end fight scene. I read a review which summed it up perfectly,
English bad guy speaking about Jack "Is it planned or does he just make it up as he goes along" Same can be said for the Director of this film.
Its a shame I loved the 1st film. If you didn't enjoy the 2nd film don't see the 3rd its not worth the time investment let alone the tenner to go and watch it. They should have just made a sequel and took the decent bits out of 2 and 3 and made one film.
The best bits were the Die Hard and Transformers trailers beforehand.
