I've only seen the movie once, but I wanted to put a night of sleep between me and it before I tried to convey my thoughts on it. I see my job as a fan here to tell you generally what happens and my thoughts on it, as well as whether you should spend your time going to see it. All only opinions of course. (I'll refer to the movies in numerals - 1 for the first, 5 for this, and then of course the in-betweens. Mainly because I don't want to try to remember the abbreviations OST and DMTNT. See how annoying? LOL)

Here we go ...

Seriously, spoilers aheadCollapse )

It's pretty late so I'm not going to say much right now about DMTNT, except that I liked more parts of it than I didn't like, so I might see it again.

Tell me in the comments what you thought of it, what you liked and didn't like. Please!

SPOILERS IN COMMENTS (if anyone replies) ...

In anticipation of the new movie coming out later this week, I thought I'd post a link to a meta I wrote 10 years ago about Will Turner to see if I can stir up a bit of interest in discussion - you can agree, disagree, point out changes that have actually happened based on canon (even spoilers), and the like, if you wish.

The link to the meta is over here.

I am putting on my official mod hat for this one, so read up. I'll make it brief, though.

After a few years of deliberation and in light of recent changes to the LJ Terms of Service that could put a kibosh on free speech, I finally got around to copying this community over to Dreamwidth. There are some broken links on videos, like recent trailers, and perhaps more going back in our 10-year history, but I think we'll manage OK without them (or can replace them with updated links if that's possible, as breakages are found). As far as I can tell, all the entries and comments over the past 10-plus years have been moved over, though, so you won't lose much if anything by joining that community if you're on DW. (And if you're not on DW but are thinking of joining, I don't think you need an invitation to do so - just create your account, then come find us.)

The DW location is at: http://turningpirate.dreamwidth.org

I created the comm on DW in 2009 but had never used it, mainly so I could claim the community name in case I ever decided to import everything over there. I will probably elect to make new posts there if I have to choose one or the other, but I want to make something clear for those of you not migrating or not yet migrating: I AM NOT SHUTTING DOWN THIS COMMUNITY ON LJ. At least not now. There are still a lot of people who use this service who haven't migrated and I want to continue to include them as long as possible (although, do be aware you can comment in DW entries with your LJ identity). Until and unless LJ owners make this site untenable, I'll maintain the comm in both places.

I know we've been largely silent for a number of years around here, but I'm anticipating that we might see a little traffic after the new movie comes out next month and so I'm also trying to prepare for that.

Um ... in case you don't realize it ... SPOILERS IN WATCHING

Another Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer ... spoilers ahoy. You've been warned!

So a more detailed teaser aired during the Super Bowl earlier this evening. I found the slightly longer version of it online.

I was thinking it the other day actually, since... I've actually followed a bit about the drama here and there about the next PotC movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tails... Or, as the new name is, Salazar's revenge.

I'm a bit sad Keira Knightly is not going to join in, but I am very intrigued that our own Ferryman is a part of it, Orlando Bloom.

I'll admit, I am a bit worried how they'll deal with the fact he is Captain of the Flying Dutchman, Ferryman of the dead. I've always loved that and my headcanon is wast. But... What will the movie itself do with it? I never liked On Stranger Tides really, so yeah... Nervous. But excited, because Will Turner. :-P

But that's not the only thing, there'll be two generations of Turners in this, isn't there? Henry Turner will be a part of the story to! INTERESTING!!!!! VERY MUCH!!!

And now there's a trailer as well, and I have to say... It's looking GOOD!

I'm carefully optimistic and very curious... How about you guys?

Can never go wrong with undead pirates, right? ;-D
Current Mood: optimisticoptimistic
Current Music: None...

You all may not realize it, but I did not forget ... turningpirate turns 10 years old this month. In fact, it was just a few days ago!

I've spent a couple of weeks trying to think of something I could do to celebrate, but didn't really come up with anything. Given the age and lack of activity here in the past few years (which is natural given it's been a decade since Will Turner showed up in canon), coupled with RUSSIA and LJ being a thing, there might not even be many people who see this post.

But, I thought I might amuse anyone who wants to stop by by reposting some old macros and photos. Feel free to add your own in the comments, or photos, whatever. :-)

Even more under the cutCollapse )
