Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
I own that movie and i've never watched it.
I tried to watch it once, and was kinda bored but that was before it was even on DVD. But I have a standing rule of "Johnny Depp has a Starring role in this, I probably won't like it" Public Enemies being the exception.
I enjoy all the PotC movies other than the last one which was total shit. First is clearly the best but the plot in the 2nd and 3rd gets so insanely stupid batshit convoluted that I fucking love them, theres a funny scene where Mackenzie Crook tries to keep track of everyones motivation but it hardly even matters. Depp is great in the first but gets more irritating as it goes on, thankfully Geoffrey Rush comes back to totally steal the 3rd, funny as fuck but multi layered performance far more compelling than Depp who just goes from Keith Richards to Russell Brand by the end of the third.
Only watched the first two PotC movies and after sitting through the second at the cinema I sorta gave up on the series. Really didn't care that much for it, even though i liked Bill Nighy in it. But the first was fucking awesome, a really good fun film to watch, and I've seen it multiple times. Even like Bloom and Knightly... Geoffrey Rush is still the best thing about them.
