I thought this movie was AWESOME. Sure there were some parts that were kinda eehhh...but all in all I really enjoyed it. It was a nice change from the oh so seriousness of the previous two films (not that I don't love them, lol).
I went to the midnight premiere with
and Heather. We were the only people who had dressed up, Lindsey and I looking more piratical than anyone else. It was really fun.
Barbossa, once again, stole my heart. He's absolutely my favorite. Such a pirate's pirate. I just love his character. He's certainly a pirate I wouldn't mind being best friends with.
OH. MY. GOD.
Ian McShane was superb! When he emerged out of the darkness with the cannon wicks smoking out of his beard and then his face becoming illuminated and looking JUST LIKE the famous illustration of Edward Teach I freaking lost it. I was like AAAHHHH!!!! Just so amazing. And his sword being like the keys to the Queen Anne's Revenge was perfect.
The mermaids were scary as all hell. I wasn't expecting (spoiler alert!) vampire teeth, their certain appetite for human flesh, or their seaweed Spiderman ability. Their tails were so pretty though! I really like how they were designed. I was slightly confused by the religious man's (his name escapes me at the moment) sudden feelings for Syrena, though. Will and Elizabeth weren't in it so there I suppose there was some requirement for a young lovey-dovey couple. Speaking of Elizabeth not being in it...
I loved that! I have to admit it. I'm honestly not a big fan of Keira Knightly (I'm prepared for any hate I may receive for that comment). I just got tired of her character and her jutting jaw when she speaks.
I thought Penelope Cruz did really well. Her (spoiler alert again) impersonation of Jack was interesting, especially when he kisses her after their swordfight. I was just like O.O "I am utterly confused right now..."
And the music! I loved the Spanish guitar woven in with the well-known melodies. I have to get the soundtrack!
In closing, I found this beautiful version of the Davy Jones lullaby with lyrics. This lady's voice is lovely! Hope you enjoy. [link]
And also, my Yia Yia is doing much better! My dad says she should be out of the hospital by Monday.
