Another midnight showing, another night Susannah sits in a theater alone.

I do not like to dislike a movie. I rarely dislike any movies I've seen. I can really only think of a handful of movies I did not like (Hearts In Atlantis, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Happy Feet). I am one of the most easily entertained people EVER. Some others walk out of a theater thinking, "I paid $10 to see that?" while I, on the other hand, can't wait to see it again. (For example: A Sound Of Thunder.)

So I'll say this: I liked Pirates of the Caribbean 3 as a movie, just not necessarily as a Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

That was my immediate reaction to it, while walking out of the theater. (alone. in heels. at 3 a.m. to my car, parked FOREVER away.)

Even though it is seven hours long, I will see it again. The acting is great, the story is great, it's a great movie. I just do not like it! Aaah, I make no sense.

I dunno, I guess to me Pirates (1 & 2) was such a nonsensical fluffy (funny 3-way sword fights) movie that I could watch with Caroline and Emma Kate without it being too freaky for them. However, 3 is so filled with intense violence (do we really need to see everyone being slowly murdered? Especially death-by-tentacle?! ick!) that I would never suggest I take the girls to it.

But in and of itself, I loved it. It's a great movie. ...just so freakin' violent.

One thing I LOVED about it was the score! Hello, gorgeous! I was about fifteen minutes late to the movie, so I watched about an hour of it before walking into the next showing to catch the part I missed. I had taken allergy medicine earlier in the evening, so I was incredibly drowsy. As the hour I'd already seen came onto the screen, I closed my eyes and just listened to the music until I fell asleep. (Don't fret, I woke up before I missed anything, haha.)

I'm pretty sick of going to these by myself. Harry Potter 5, anyone?

You and me at Harry 5.

You know I'd be there for every movie, if only I lived in the same country...

We should arrange to go see Hairspray at the same time. That would be cool?
