p. We went to see “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”:http://pirates.movies.go.com/ yesterday with J&M. We loved it! It is a bit long at 2 hours and 20 minutes, but I didn’t even notice. They did a great job weaving in bits and pieces of the Pirates theme park attraction into the movie. Being a bit of a fanatic about Pirates (I went on the attraction at least a dozen times during my visit to Disneyland in October), it was a lot of fun when these treats popped up on screen.
p. Even if you’ve never been to Disneyland, there’s still a lot to love about the movie. Adventure, action, comedy, and creepy living skeleton pirates! What more could you want from a pirate movie? If you’re looking for a fun time at the movies this summer, you can’t go wrong with Pirates of the Caribbean.
p. I think J and I are encouraged by their handling of this movie to hope that the “Haunted Mansion”:http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/hauntedmansion/main.html movie won’t be a total disaster. HM is my other favorite Disney attraction, so I really hope they do it well. The preview shown before Pirates looked good, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
