Movie Musings Monday: Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End

Sunday night, Hubs, my little sister, and I caught Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End at a late night viewing. I had high hopes for the 3rd installment as I really enjoyed the first two movies quite a lot. Keeping with my usual trend, critics mainly panned the movie, but I enjoyed it. Visual effects were superb; I bet this will be a fantastic Blu-Ray or HD DVD title. Plot lines could be a bit confusing at times, but who can complain when there's multiple Johnny Depps in one scene? The underlying love triangle plot hook with Elizabeth-Jack-Will was as thick as ever. Keith Richards as Jack Sparrow's father is absolutely hilarious. At one point, he's shown playing an acoustic guiter, but I was disappointed that a pirate-y version of"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" wasn't played. Be forewarned, this movie is quite long, over 3 hours with previews and staying for the hidden post closing credits scene.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars. Proving for a fact that pirates > ninjas :)
Knitting Rating: 1 out of 5 Skeins. I didn't bring any knitting projects with me, but I wish I had during the ending credits.
