    pirates of the carribean 2

    quite good imo.
    not as good as the first one of course, but the first one was just way good.
    it sure did get a ton of money over the weekend. (132 million)
    i think it was the best cgi that ive ever seen.
    you should see it!

    Re: pirates of the carribean 2

    Yeah, early reviews have been pretty positive...

    I'll probably see it this weekend. Thing is, I don't expect it to be as good as the first, so I doubt I'll be disappointed.

    Besides, with Depp's coolness and hilarity, Bloom's boyish good looks and charm, and Knightley's stunning beauty, how can it not be enjoyable?... :thumbsup:

    Re: pirates of the carribean 2

    I'm glad someone posted a review of this

    I'm excited to see it. I heard that it was getting bad reviews at first, but when I looked up the reviews they all seemed pretty positive.

    I'm a fan of Depp, largely because he has done a lot of off-the-track films and despite his good looks, has largely avoided doing plasticy "chick flicks" and the like. He seems to enjoy the art of acting and his resume supports it.

    I also like Bloom largely because of his portrayal of the elf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    And Knightly is a cutie!

    btw, when are they coming out with 21 Jump Street on DVD???

    Do go see it Rick!
    I thoroughly enjoyed the movie! The one thing I wish I hadn't done, is watch the promo's and commercials for Pirates 2. Too many really funny lines and scenes were given away!

    I'm a fan for the same reasons.

    Oh. My. God. Look how young they all are! Lara you just made my day

    I will go see the movie. I have avoided reading too in depth into the reviews because I want to be surprised.

    Thanks! :thumbsup:

    LOL Adina.... that he is. Rick, what can we say, he just is!!!

    Adina, did you see Libertine? It was very explicit, and difficult to watch, but a very artistic movie. After watching the deleted scenes on the DVD, I came to the conclusion they left out some of the best of the work.

    He is hotter as a pirate!

    I haven't seen Libertine, although we just saw a preview. It's on the list...

    My favorite ever has to be Crybaby. I must have seen that one 100 times

    You don't need to resort to that you have a certain quiet and naturally rugged sexiness in some of your self portraits that requires no grime...
    (note: that isn't highlighted in a different color= serious comment)

    but if you want to slap on the grime and makeup for the sake of debate---go to town:smilewinkgrin:

    here's what I mean


    THIS specifically is the shot that does it for me....


    no really---where's the one that you are laying on your back and looking straight up at the camera(old one from a few years back....with long hair...

    and the blue lake one....that one didn't even have a face!

    Yes, nothing says "man" like last year's model pink backpack.

    How ever did you find that picture?!

    The one you're talking about (I'm told I don't actually look like that) is in my profile, if you click on my name. I was... 22?

    Hardy-har. I was being nice to my girlfriend that day.

    And did I mention I almost got my ass kicked by a couple of rednecks for wearing that?
