Pirates of the Carribean 3 – At worlds end

Pirates of the Carribean - At worlds endMe and my boyfriend borrowed the DVD from my sister and watched it yesterday after our guests had left us.

It was a lot better then the second of the pirates movies. It still has that element of myth and fantasy but it does not seem as unrealistic as I thought it was in the second one. If you haven’t seen the other pirates of the Caribbean movies, there’s very little meaning in watching this one right now. They are all tied together, and to be able to understand the story fully, you need to watch them all.

I recommend you don’t read further right now if you haven’t yet watched the two earlier movies. There might be a spoiler in the text as I have a feeling I’ll be referring a bit to the earlier movies to explain the story line shortly. Read the rest of this entry »

Miami Vice

Miami ViceA couple friends had rented Miami Vice, and me and my boyfriend were over at their place and watched it with them. Couldn’t help comparing to the series, and in my opinion the series are better. The movie went on too slow, there were periods where nothing really happened 🙁

Colin Farrell just didn’t fit in Don Jonssons shoes as Sonny Crocket. And that silly mustach he has, looked rediculus in my opinion.
Jamie Foxx did a bit of better job to fit in as Ricardo Tubbs though. But who got the idea to put Barry Shabaka Henley as Lt. Martin Castillo? He has no resemblance what so ever to the orginal charachter. Suppose that might be the idea, but still… Read the rest of this entry »
