See Pirates 3 early

05.08.2007

The PIRATES/SPIDER-MAN opening weekend pissing contest has been taken to the next level. Disney announced today that it will open PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 3 a day early to funnel a few more dollars into its opening weekend numbers. Take that Sony Pictures! So for all you readers out there who were planning on sitting at home on May 24th curled up in a ball, biting your fingernails and counting down the seconds until midnight, May 25th, you'll have some early release. Now I don't know who's lucky enough to have a parent who would let them see a three-hour movie at 8pm on a school night, but I was never that guy. I was lucky to make it through "Diff'rent Strokes" before I got sent to bed. Disney isn't making much of the announcement, probably because they don't want people to realize they'll be counting Thursday sales in their weekend total. Of course on May 24th, I know where I'll be - re-watching the "Lost" season finale from the night before.

Stay the Hell Away...

...from my theater. Seriously, like it's a big deal to be able to come see a three hour movie at midnight the night before it technically opens. We generally have to stay there until 3am because one or two a**holes decide they just HAVE to come see that new movie earler than everybody else. If you can lose sleep to come see it at midnight, then you obviously have no job in the morning and can wait unil 11am to come watch it, losers. First person I see dressed in character for this is getting

Yawn!

Yawn!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks, But no thanks. I think I'll pass.I hated part 1 did'nt bother seeing part 2 and the same goes for part 3. Please don't waste money and make a part 4. The sad thing is that this movie is 3 hours and something minutes long, And this film will do good, But a great movie like Grindhouse failed. This is a very sad world.

I still won't see it opening weekend

Didn't like the last one too much. I will see this after it's out a few weeks. I want to keep spidey's record intact. It wont have as many showings as spiderman 3 because of its length. Not to mention Spidermam 3 didn't have another blockbuster to compete with. It won't break the record.

Maybe it's because I grew up differently, but I have never been one to dislike something just because it ran too long. People are in too much of a rush these days.

Ugh

The sequel poisoned the well for me on this one. It was wayyy too long. Long can be great but not if it's just self-indulgent, which Pirates 2 certainly was. This one being longer doesn't bode well, particularly if the first chunk of the movie is going to be Bloom/Keira looking for Depp. Depp is the only reason these movies are worth a damn.

I just wanna go on record as saying that I dig Mike's writing style. And I'll be re-watching that LOST finale as well ;)
